Arutz 7: Ya'alon, Shaked exchange words over Duma
Defense Minister hints Jewish Home members should do some soul-searching after attacking the ISA over Duma. Shaked responds.
Uzi Baruch and Hezki Ezra: 12/27/2015
The Likud and the Jewish Home engaged in a war of words on Saturday, which began when Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon (Likud) criticized the Jewish Home by linking statements some of its MKs had made with the arson attack in Duma, and also accusing Jewish Home members of rushing to make false accusations against the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) with regards to the investigation into the arson.
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) later responded by accusing Ya’alon of trying to make a political gain from the Duma affair.
"Unfortunately, the terrorists are Jews," Yaalon told Channel 2’s “Meet the Press” program in reference to the culprits behind the Duma arson. He urged Israelis not to stain all the Jewish residents in Judea and Samaria nor the entire religious Zionist movement, but said that "certainly someone needs to do some soul-searching." (cont.)

"He urged Israelis not to stain all the Jewish residents in Judea and Samaria nor the entire religious Zionist movement."In other words, it is OK to live in Yehudah and Shomron. This is just the same old rhetoric designed to convince the masses that Zionism can be separated from Torah. This has been going on for hundreds of years already. It's boring, but insideous, and very frustrating that Jews fail to see this. In fact, at least 80 percent of us, the same percentage the midrash suggests never made it out of Egypt (See Rashi on Parashath Beshalah). Coincidence?
Now look at what Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) said...
"Do not try to stain the religious Zionist movement, an entire community that serves and contributes to society, because of a group of terrorist anarchists who Bogie knows are outlaws who do not listen to rabbinical and educational authority,"See any difference between what the two ministers said? I sure don't. Both cabinet ministers also agree that the actions of the ISA/Shabba"k were acceptable. Plus, neither of them have mentioned any evidence than any of the boys currently held in administrative detention, have done anything, let alone burn an Arab house down.
Claiming that criticism of government officials and agencies constitute "attacks" is simply code for "you don't really have freedom of speech."
Plus, once again, loyalty to the State is used as a litmus test for demonization. Failure to accept indoctrination from the State's education system appears to be tantamount to committing a crime against the State.
This type of "argument" is an old trick governments use in order to trick the masses into believing that they actually have a choice, when the go to the poles.
Here in Israel we do have a choice: Slow and steady battle against the Torah and annexation of Yehudah and Shomron or a quick and dirty one.
Ya'alon and Shaked are only "arguing" over the irrelevant nuances of the somewhat slow and steady battle against the Torah and true Zionism, which appears to be building up increasingly faster.
It looks like the State's government is getting increasingly scared.
