I recently reported on one of the increasing number of police strategies designed to make life for residents of Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria) difficult.
Maybe this strategy will finally wake Jews up to the fact that, at this very moment, the Israeli government is testing all sorts of ways to ease our removal (Read: Expulsion) from these ancient Jewish areas.
Taking away our weapons, raids on yishuvim (towns), closing off the holes in our fences, securing us for ease of removal, including but not limited to tear gas and violence,...when the time comes.
They are not waiting for a vote (as if it's ours to vote on in the place first place). The "post-Zionist" (Read: EU wannabes), un-Jewish, Eruv Rav has already made the decision for us...
...and we are letting them....
Israeli Police Use Arab Provacateurs in Ambush of Jewish Hikers
JERUSALEM -- Israeli police, in what appears to be a new tactic to quell Jewish nationalists, have begun to use Arab provocateurs in the West Bank.
Police have acknowledged that they used Arab stone throwers to stop young Jews from hiking through the West Bank on July 29.
Police detective Aharon Yair told a Jerusalem magistrate that Israeli security forces colluded with Arab provocateurs as part of an ambush to arrest the hikers.
Yair, when questioned by defense attorney Naftali Wurtzburger, admitted that special police forces, disguised in civilian clothes but wearing police hats, hid in an ambush together with Palestinian Bedouin waiting for the Jewish hikers to arrive. (Read more...)
You may call me a conspiracy theorist, but remember this. Conspiracies are supposed to be secret. If this is just a conspiracy, then the Israeli government isn't doing a very good job at hiding it.
Yossi Beilin YSh"W (Shimon Peres's true heir-apparent) has been quite clear about his desires, and his belief that a Jewish state is no longer necessary.
We have a misswah lo ta'aseh "Lo Tehonem..."
ב וּנְתָנָם יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, לְפָנֶיךָ--וְהִכִּיתָם: הַחֲרֵם תַּחֲרִים אֹתָם, לֹא-תִכְרֹת לָהֶם בְּרִית וְלֹא תְחָנֵּם. - דברים ז:ב
2 and when the LORD thy God shall deliver them up before thee, and thou shalt smite them; then thou shalt utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them. - Deut. 7:2
We are supposed to make it difficult for the Arabs to remain here, not the other way around. (Ramba"m, Hil. Avodah Zarah and Laws of Goyim 10)
The Israeli government has got it backwards, and they are doing so, with full cognizance of the implications.
They are working against Torah; they are working against HaShem.
And where are the rabbis? Why aren't they talking about this misswah? Is it not also part of the Torah?
Fortunately, some rabbanim are talking about the importance of employing only Jews. That's at least a step in the right direction.
