Israeli Leftists: "Jews, Stay In France!"

Arutz 7: Labor voters don't want French Aliyah?
Supporters of Zionist Union and Meretz do not welcome immigration by French Jews, surprising poll finds.

Gil Ronen, 1/19/2016

Most of the people who voted for the Zionist Union (Labor / Hatnua) and Meretz would not encourage French Jews to immigrate to Israel, a surprising new poll found.

The poll, which is cited in conservative-nationalist website Mida, was carried out by pollster Prof. Avraham Diskin under the auspices of the Shaarei Mishpat college of law.

The respondents were asked – "Would you recommend to a close friend or relative in France, who is well-off as far as status is concerned, to make Aliyah to Israel?"

Most of the people who vote for the right-wing responded affirmatively. A total of 64.5% of Jewish Home voters said "definitely yes" or "yes, I think so," as did a total of 57% of Likud voters. The rest chose "I think not" and "definitely not."

However, most left-wing voters appeared to prefer to see the Jews stay put in France. Only 46% of the Zionist Union voters selected the positive answers, and among Meretz voters, only 17% would have encouraged the hypothetical French friend or relative to make Aliyah. (cont.)
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
I have been saying this for years, that the term “Zionism” has long since been hijacked. But, the re-invention of the term by the [un-] Zionist Camp of Herzog and Livni is only the tip of the iceberg.

Pining for a land for the Jews, any land, even Uganda, pushing for German to be the official language of such a land, and the collaboration with the Nazis by the so-called “Labor Zionists” should all be clues to the fact that the current application of the term “Zionism”’ has absolutely nothing to do with Zionism.
Using the word "Zionist" to re-brand the Labor party and Tzipi Livni's Hatnua was a brilliant move, opines Akiva Bigman in Mida, but Livni and Labor head Yitzchak Herzog may be "stretching their own definitions anew." If the majority among the group they represent does not recommend making Aliyah, this looks like "a new kind of Zionism," which "recommends that Jews remain in the Diaspora, while the minority that remains in the Land of Israel calls Obama every time it wants to build a new porch."

At least “post-Zionists,” like Yossi Beilin, who declare that there is no longer any need for a Jewish state, are intellectually honest on this point.

Anyone who has not yet seen this, must wake up, and admit that they have been living mental and spiritual exile, or have succumb to the anti-Zionist indoctrination brainwashing, or most likely both.

Of course, the Left does not want French, North African, tradition and religious, Jews to make aliyah, and it is not just because of their views, and the way they will undoubtedly vote. The Left does not want to build up the Land. The Left does not want a Jewish state. The left wants an assimilated, Western progressive, potential member of the European Union, just like all of the previous Labor “Zionists.” In other words, they want a non-Jewish nation, just like the rest of the goyim, an accepted member of the globalist (ie. anti-nationalist) community.

Why can only so few Jews see what is so obvious to anyway, looking back at our history, and paying attention to the news?
Some in the nationalist camp have long suspected that the reason the Left has been less than exuberant in calling on French Jews to make Aliyah is that most of these Olim are Sephardic Jews with traditional, right-wing views.
Oh sure. The secular, Ashkenazy elite was perfectly happy to welcome (religious and traditional) Moroccan Jews into Eretz Yisra'el, so that they could enlist in the IDF, and take up the place of a more privileged Jew from North Tel-Aviv.

Liberal, secular, Ashkenzy Jews racists? You had better believe it.

In this week's Torah portion, B'nei Yisra'el see the miraculous parting of the Red Sea, and because of it, escapes the wrath of Pharoah and his soldiers.

Members of the Labor (AKA "Zionist Camp") and Meretz Parties are not only telling French Jews not to cross the Red Sea which has been parted for them, but are also telling them not to leave Egypt in the first place.

Those found in our history, who forsake our Divinely Promised Homeland, include the Erev Rav (Ex. 13:18) and the Meraglim (Num. 13-14). Take your pick.

But, I suppose that I should be grateful of those like Gil Ronen who are exposing this stuff, albeit too little, too late.

The only reason that a topic like this has made it into the mainstream news media, is because it has become too obvious to hide. Unfortunately, the indoctrination into this new "Zionism" is going to take some time, or some dramatic event, to wear off.

But, no one should be in the least bit surprised by the results of this survey.

And until, the so-called "nationalists" call for at least the encouragement of more Torah observance within Eretz Yisra'el, I will continue to view them as being in the same category.

When arriving in Eretz Israel, many of the ashkenazim paid Arab women to ween their babies.
By being weened by none Jewish woman, in fact with milk that is not kosher, a Jewish child looses the ability to connect with the Shechina.
See story about Moshe Rabeinu and his sister. Just by drinking kosher milk of his own mother as a baby, he was able to "face" the SHECHINA.

Thank you for writing.

I would certainly agree that there are many problems with hiring an Arab woman to ween ones baby, including spiritual ones. However, I hate to disappoint you, but human milk is kosher, period.

If you are implying something Qabbalistic, please provide a source. If you are suggesting a theory or hypothesis, please say so.

Otherwise I do not think that we can make the inference you make, albeit it is a nice d'rash.

All children should be treated as if they might reach the greatest spiritual heights. The Medrash tells us that because Moshe Rabbeinu was destined to become a prophet and speak with the shechinah, it was not proper for him as an infant to nurse from non-Jewish women (who ate non-kosher food). The Rema (Yoreh Deah 81:7) encourages all parents to consider the possibility that their children too will some day become neviim, and therefore in the event that a mother is unable to nurse her child and a non-Jewish woman must nurse the child, the parents should see to it that the wet-nurse should not eat any non-kosher food as long as she is nursing the Jewish child.

The mother's milk is always preferred to that of the wetnurse.(Avot de-Rabbi Natan 31:1) However, if the mother is ill, or if she has died, a wetnurse may be employed to provide the infant with natural mother's milk. The Talmud allows the wetnurse to take over the responsibility of nursing even in cases where the mother's status prevents her from doing so. (Exodus 2:7-9; Kettubot 60b) Halakhah thus makes allowances to ensure that each child has the possibility to nurse under all circumstances. Special allowances are made for nursing mothers on the Sabbath and holidays. * (Joshua Neubirt, "Shemirat Shabbat Kehilkhato"; J-m, Feldheim 1965, ch. 23:25) Orphan babies were suckled by neighborhood women in turn or were fed milk and eggs, which were considered the second best nutrition for infants.(Avot de-Rabbi Natan 31:1) The wetnurse must not suckle more than one child if she is given a charge.(Yevamot 42a) The wetnurse must be given abundant food.(Ketubbot 60b)

According to some rabbis, it is permitted for a gentile to suckle a Jewish infant if the infant is in mortal danger and must receive breast milk and if the gentile woman is the only person available.(Tanhuma, Exodus 7:26; Yerushalmi 76) Others cite the case of Moses, who refused to nurse from a gentile woman and accepted nourishment only when given the breast of a Jewish woman.(Sotah 12' Exodus Rabbah, Tanhuma 7) Contemporary rabbis have concluded that although it may be permissible in certain cases for a child to be nursed by a gentile, if this may be prevented all the better.(Responsa of Azriel, 10:80)
