ערב ראש החודש האחד עשר תשע"ה
While some support putting sovereignty to referendum to voted on by Israel citizens, I was referred to this recent video (Hebrew/English subtitles), put out by Women In Green, promoting candidates which support sovereignty over Yehudah and the Shomron (Judea and Samaria).
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
We must not make a referendum on sovereignty over Yehudah and Shomron.
We must not vote, in anyway, shape, or form, on sovereignty over Yehudah and Shomron.
This issue has already been decided, and by a higher authority than men.
We must stand behind this truth, declare it, and act upon it. That truth is stated in the Torah.
Eretz Yisra'el (Land of Israel), ALL of Eretz Yisra'el, belongs to Am Yisra'el! There is nothing to vote on. It is not our decision. The decision has already been made. It is an embarrassment that some of these "religious" Zionists support a referendum.
It is important to take a closer look at the figures, included in this video. Do they, themselves really support sovereignty over Yehudah and the Shomron, like Women In Green?
Yisra'el Katz (Likud): The "Green Line?" Why to we insist on even using, let alone acknowledging such ridiculous terminology? Nowhere in the Torah is there a green line. This is a term made up by goyim, and accepted by co-dependent Jews. It is ridiculous, and should by expunged from our vernacular immediately.
The "Territories?" If we are to speak of "territories," then we should speak of the territories of the Tribes of Re'uven and Gad, the Northern segments of the territories of the Tribes of Asher and Naftali, and how have those returned to their rightful owners: Am Yisra'el.
Forget where those are? Here's a map:
Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home)? Here's Bennett's plan...
|Bennett's Plan vs. Oslo "Death" Accords|
Find the difference.
Doesn't look like the above map, based on the Torah, does it?
Uriel Ariel (Jewish Home) and outgoing Speaker of the K'nesseth Yuli Edelstein (Likud) and Yariv Levin (Likud) present an approach much more compatible with Torah principles than Bennet.
Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) those "pieces of Eretz Yisra'el over which we all agree belong to us." What's that on his head? A kippah? HaShem has already decided that it does not matter which pieces over which we agree belong to us nor which pieces that the "international community" of goyim agree belong to us. It is not up for discussion. All of those "pieces," agreed upon or not belong to us. Which Torah has he been following, as a "religious" Zionist?
Miri Regev (Likud) means well. The main flaw in her reasoning stated in this video is that she actually expects her own party to follow its own rules. Good luck!
Ayelet Shaqed (Jewish Home)..Hmm...So far, the women are two for two. And the men? Don't ask. And, those MK's not identifying as "religious" also adhere more to Torah principles more so that those who identify as "religious."
Moshe Feiglin (Likud) would actually like to Israel as a Jewish State. Already think it is? Guess again. Then either you don't actually live here, or haven't been taught that the Torah touches every aspect of our lives, not just what we put into our mouths and we so or do not do on Shabbath.
With the opinions by some of the so-called "Religious" Zionists, presented here in this video, there should no longer be any doubt that the State of Israel is from it.
Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan (Jewish Home) also presents a position, compatible with Torah. But, don't think that this him Ben-Dahan off the hook for the various, silly remarks he has made in the past.
Zevulun Kalfa, Orit Struk, and Shuli Mualem (Jewish Home) , at least in this video, also express views from a Torah based reasoning. Unfortunately, this by far not always the case, at least not for Kalfa, let alone from their other, fellow Jewish Home Party MK's.
Moti Yogev (Jewish Home), wants to adopt the Levy Report, and apply sovereignty to Yehudah and the Shomron. Gee, MK Yogev, ever thought of adopting the Torah Report? Nope, probably not. What's that on his head? A kippah?
Hmm... No mention of Tzippy Hotovely (Likud)? I'm very surprised,...but pleasantly so.
She, like the other Religious Zionist "hero," Naftali Bennett, allow room for granting Arabs citizenship. This position is only a tad better than Danny Danon's ridiculous friendship with Christians, who have been slowly, but steadily sneaking in through the back door of "volunteering," bot out in the field with non-profit organizations, and through serving in the Israeli Defense Froces [IDF] themselves.
But, I digress...
After the 2:45 mark in the video, a bunch of endorsements are thrown in, from various other famous, and infamous people, over whom we are supposed to be impressed. If you would like to sit in front of your computer screens are weed through them, be my guest.
Then, after that, the video becomes even more worthless than you thought it already was. International Law, History, Western logic from the mouths of not only Israeli lawyers, but from non-Israeli, non-Jews, and who knows who else.
The only, I repeat, the only justification for Jewish claims to Eretz Yisra'el is because HaShem says that it belongs to us, and He tells us so via His Holy Torah. This is the only relevant document we need as a people.
Even the anti-Zionist, Neturei Karta believe that Eretz Yisra'el belongs to Am Yisrael. They simply believe that we are not yet to take possession of it, and not to do so in the manner in which we have already attempted to do so.
I may not agree with their position, but I do not ever remember anyone from Neturei Karta calling for a vote on the Torah (חו"ח).
Now what are we going to do about it?
Vote? By voting, we are saying that there is an alternative to the Torah position.
There is not.
