Amalek - Within and Without

4 Sivan 5773
Day 48 of the Omer

People are stuck on these irrelevant labels - leftists and right wingers; as if politics has anything to do with what is really going on here. Let's call it what it really is - Eisav, Amalek and the Erev Rav against the righteous gentiles and the Children of Israel.

And Amalek is the worst of all. There's the Amalek within...

Leftist Glee over Terror Murder Earns Police Complaint

Gad Di'ee of the grassroots Samaria Residents Council has filed a police complaint against leftists who expressed glee after the stabbing murder of a Jew, Evyatar Borovsky of Yitzhar.

...One leftist activist, Hila Shifman Galant, put up a link on her Facebook page to a photograph of Borovsky's son hugging his father's body at the funeral and wrote: "Daddy went to a place where he can't burn fields or poison sheep anymore. Don't take it so hard, sweetie."

...Yossi Visoker, another leftist activist, wrote in his Facebook page: "So what… one piece of scum from Yitzhar (30 years old and already a father of five) was killed? What a waste. Stand in silence to honor his memory (hahaha, a victim of terror) next year. The people of Yitzhar are the real Amalek that must be erased from the face of the earth."

Carter Calls on EU to Label Products from 'Illegal Settlements'

...Carter was in Dublin together with former Irish president Mary Robinson and former Brazilian president Fernando Henrique Cardoso for talks with Irish Foreign Affairs Minister Eamon Gilmore and diplomats from some 20 European countries on revitalizing the peace process in the Middle East.

“With the Middle East peace process making no significant progress, we call on Europe to play a stronger and more independent role in revitalizing peace efforts, with a fresh approach,” Carter said, according to the European Jewish Press (EJP).

“The EU has repeatedly condemned settlement expansion in the West Bank. It could therefore introduce a clear labeling of products made in Israeli settlements, which are illegal under international law,” he added.

...Carter said he was “very encouraged” by the response of the European diplomats at the meeting.

“They all said they were very eager to demonstrate to the world that the 1967 borders were intact, and were almost sacred, and that any intrusion by Israel into Palestine to build settlements was illegal,” he said, according to EJP.

One day soon, Amalek will cease to exist - within and without!
