17 Menachem Av 5775
The recent events in the Land of Israel are without a doubt, on the simplest level, being orchestrated by those who want the "Two-State Solution" - creating an atmosphere in which it will not only be acceptable, but desirable to evict half a million Jews from Yehudah and Shomron.
Another step up behind the scenes are those with an even grimmer agenda, those who are still hungry for the "Final Solution" - demonizing the real-Jews who are 100% attached to HKB"H and His Torah, who will refuse to trade their authentic Judaism for the fake version on offer as part of The New World Religion.
At the ultimate level, however, this is clearly part of the culling process being carried out by HKB"H. He is showing us who the people are that we must separate from, and He is going to make it easier on us by causing them to separate from us. Our ancient sources referred to this as the birur which would occur just prior to the revelation of Mashiach Tzidkeinu.
This culling is the separation of the real-Jews from the Erev Rav, Eisav, Yishmael and Amalek prior to the destruction of all evil and lies from this world.
They don't make a very pretty sight with their rage and hatred for Hashem and His children evident on their faces and clear in their words. From reports printed on Friday...
Nabil Abu Rudeineh, Abbas' spokesman, said such an incident wouldn't have happened if Israel's government hadn't insisted on continued settlement construction and offered protection to the settlements.
"We will no longer accept empty verbal condemnations of such horrible crimes by the international community; we demand operative steps to bring about an end to the occupation and see its criminals brought to justice," Abu Rudeineh said in statement, drawing a parallel between the latest incident and that of Mohammed Abu Khdeir – the Palestinian teen who was burned to death last summer in retaliation for the kidnapping and murder of three Jewish teens in the West Bank.
"This is the consequence of a culture of hate funded and incentivized by the Israeli government and the impunity granted by the international community," chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said in a statement.
President Reuven Rivlin also condemned the murder, reaching out to the Israeli Arab and Palestinian populations through Arabic media, and expressing his "disgust and deep shock" at what a statement from his office called an "arson terror attack."
“At these painful moments, I turn to the Arab citizens of Israel, and the Palestinian people, to all law abiding citizens, and ask that you do not succumb to the shock and anger. This is a time to join together," a statement from Rivlin said.
Ya'alon stressed that Israel will not allow "Jewish terrorists to harm Palestinians in the West Bank."
I'll remind the readers that it is still unknown who made the firebomb attack and even should the security forces hand up a "Jewish" perpetrator, because of the corruption of the so-called justice system, there will never be any way to know who really did it.
Motzaei Shabbat, we learned that the Shabbat was desecrated so that those who admire perversion and those who care more about Arab blood than Jewish blood could register their anger. (Such a gathering has never been undertaken in protest of any terrorist attack against Jews.)
Anti-violence rallies throughout Israel after acts of nationalist, homophobic terrorism
Following two blood-soaked days, in which a Palestinian infant was killed and his parents and sibling were critically wounded in a fire and six people were hurt in a stabbing at Jerusalem's gay pride parade, thousands are expected to protest in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Haifa; President Rivlin, party chairpersons, and religious leaders to condemn violence.
Several anti-violence demonstrations were being held throughout Israel on Saturday night, with Israelis crying out for justice in the wake of two shocking incidents of violence over the past few days.
Yitzchak Herzog: "...The Jewish people are ashamed of the deeds committed by members of our people and we ask for forgiveness in Israel and in the world… At this difficult moment, I extend my hand to the Palestinian people and its leaders."
Zehava Galon: ""What we have seen in recent days, both the stabbing of the marchers at the pride parade and the arson terror attack in Duma, can be called by its name – it's Jewish terrorism, it's Jewish ISIS,"....
Shimon Peres: "I cannot believe we have reached such an abyss," said Peres. "I took before this stage six years ago, mere days after the murders at Barnoar. I am finding it difficult to believe that we are standing on that same stage, once again before the same phenomenon. We have gathered this evening for a war of independence – Israel's independence from insanity and insane people. This is not a disagreement between right and left. This is a profound clash between those with a conscience and those who lack a conscience."
"It is appropriate on this evening to remove the masks," continued the former president. "Anyone who calls the pride parade a 'beast parade' should not be surprised when a knife is raised at a 16-year-old old girl. Anyone who incites against Israel's Arab citizens should not be surprised that churches and mosques are set on fire, and that ultimately a baby is burned alive in the middle of the night. We can compromise politically in a democratic country, but we must not compromise morally."
Amir Peretz: "Every morning I discover new horrors committed by vile people, and all in the name of God, in the name of their people, in the name of their country," said Peretz. "I saw that their people are not my people, their country is not my country, and their God is not my God." Peretz hinted that leaders on the right bear a certain responsibility for the violence: "That's how extremists interpret the call to bulldoze the Supreme Court; that's how nationalists interpret statements by ministers who undermine the rule of law."
Reuven Rivlin (again): "The flames are spreading in our land, flames of violence, flames of hatred, flames of false, distorted and twisted beliefs. Flames which permit the shedding of blood, in the name of the Torah, in the name of the law, in the name of morality, in the name of a love for the land of Israel," President Reuven Rivlin said at the rally.
"Citizens of Israel, a Jewish and democratic Israel, democratic and Jewish Israel, needs a wake-up call today. We will not be zealots. We will not be bullies. We will not become a state of anarchy," he added.
"On the eve of the 15th of the month of Av, the Jewish festival of love, six Israeli citizens were cruelly stabbed, in the heart of Jerusalem," the president said. "To my great horror and shame, the letting of blood, the path of hatred and murder, did not stop there. Over the course of the same night, Jewish terrorists burned down the house of the Dawabsheh family in the village of Duma, killing their baby son Ali."
"On Friday, I visited the family in Tel Hashomer hospital, I visited, silently, ashamed, ridden with dread for the power of hatred. Ashamed that in a country which has known the murder of Shalhevet Pass, of the Fogel family, of Adele Biton, of Eyal, Gil-ad, Naftali and Muhammad Abu Khdeir, there are still those who do not hesitate to ignite the flames, to burn the flesh of a baby, to increase the hatred and terror," Rivlin went on to say.
"These flames, which are consuming all of us, cannot be extinguished with weak condemnations. These flames cannot be extinguished with solidarity rallies. Not even with this rally," he said. "These flames cannot be extinguished with posts on Facebook and statements in the media. These flames cannot be extinguished with repression, denial and disregard. Incitement, ridicule, frivolity, laxity and arrogance of the heart, cannot extinguish the fire, but only allow it to burn stronger, with fervor, to spread in all directions, and permeate all walks of life.
"In order to put out the flames, we need be a much more determined and decisive. We must be thorough and clear; from the educational system, to those who enforce the law, through to the leadership of the people and the country. We must put out the flames, the incitement, before they destroy us all."
As regrettable as these events are, even together they are not deserving of this level of rhetoric - that is, unless there is a hidden agenda at work. This is what I believe to be the case. We must be very careful and very wise about how we respond to it.
This tops it all! According to Shimon Peres, authentic Torah Jews are now public enemy number one. (h/t Neshama)
