'Lapid Will Be Murdered Like Rabin'
Attorney and rabbi Dov Halbertal warned that Finance Minister Yair Lapid's crusade to enlist the hareidim into the IDF will lead to him being murdered a la former Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin, assassinated in 1995 following his Oslo Accords.
Halbertal, a former bureau chief in the Chief Rabbinate who was close to Torah sage Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, appeared on Galei Yisrael this week, and related that an important yeshiva world figure warned him that "there's going to be a new Rabin murder. Yair Lapid will be murdered by a hareidi."
A few thoughts come to mind. The first is that why only Lapid? There are tens if not hundreds more who will take his place. Political assassination is NOT the answer. We need a political revolution where you sweep the house clean!
My second thought was who is this irresponsible Jew who goes to the enemy and reveals such information?
The radio show's host called the words "explosive," saying Shin Bet (Internal Security) could soon be waiting outside the studio to question Halbertal over the statements.
"I don't know about Shin Bet, I'm just saying what they told me," responded Halbertal. "Someone to whom I ascribe importance tells me we aren't far from that. The murder of Lapid will be the next Rabin murder in line."
If he has no concerns about Shabak, then he is stupid or in cahoots with them. I did a quick Google search and found a YWN article in which he explains his 'holy' reasons for promoting the separation of religion and state in Israel. B'kitzur, he's one of the bad guys, but this incident on the radio already told us that.
RABBANIM CHAREIDI'IM, ROSHEI YESHIVOT AND YESHIVA STUDENTS BE WARNED! THEY'RE LOOKING TO SET YOU UP THE SAME WAY THAT THEY SET UP THE NATIONAL RELIGIOUS KEHILAH WITH RABIN! TAKE PRECAUTIONS!!
If it were up to me, I'd call for the excommunication this rodef Halbertal.
