"Destruction is Imminent"

After a stepped-up campaign, by the so-called Defense Minister, of deligitimization of the people objecting to the destruction of the Ayelet Hashachar shul in Givat Ze'ev, the Memshelet Zadon is determined to raze it to the ground.

But, to give credit where credit is due, the following rabbanim have made a public call to members of the security forces to refuse to carry out the orders for the synagogue's demolition...

Rabbi Shalom Cohen Shlita, Rabbi David Batzri Shlita, Rabbi Meir Mazuz Shlita, Rabbi Binayahu Shmueli Shlita, Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburg Shlita, Rabbi Shalom Arush Shlita, Rabbi Avigdor Nebenzahl Shlita, Rabbi Bentzion Mutzafi Shlita, Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu Shlita and Rabbi David Chai HaCohen Shlita.

Kol hakavod lahem. According to YWN's report...
The demolition of the shul is imminent as per the decision of the High Court of Justice.
The rabbonim shlita call on members of the IDF and Israel Police to refuse orders, not to lend a hand in an act that is prohibited by the Torah and that the Torah supersedes the decision of the court. They call on them to refrain from being a part of this Chilul Hashem.
The call of the rabbonim is also directed at non-Jewish members of security forces, explaining by protecting Kodshei Yisrael they will merit a bracha from the G-d of Avraham, אב המון גויים.
Many have already arrived at the shul for the standoff, occupying their time with tefilos and limudim.
May Hashem look upon us with mercy and save this mikdash me'at from the hands of the reshaim.
