Israel’s Declaration of Independence states that a constitution for the State of Israel “shall be adopted by the Elected Constituent Assembly not later than the 1st October 1948.”
Clearly they’re running a little late. And this is more than Jewish standard time. Despite (or because of) the Jewish proclivity for legalistic arguments, this never happened. In 1950, the Knesset gave up and decided instead to work toward a constitution piecemeal by passing a series of Basic Laws that taken together would ultimately serve the purpose of a constitution. (cont.)
Esser Agaroth (2¢): We already have a Constitution. It's called the Torah. Democracy, or in Israel's case deMOCKracy, is good for the goyim, not for us.
Glad you're back in Israel. But, remind me again what's Jewish about the "Jewish" state?
OK. So, I know this sounds a little smarmy, even though it's really not supposed to. The reality is that Vic just handed me an opportunity to remind you (get through your thick skulls) about the following:
Vic has at put his money where his mouth is, and has moved back to Israel, where all Jews belong. This is a heck of a lot more than I can say about all you armchair "Zionists" out there in the U. S., who really have no clue, and many of whom still believe that organizations such as B'nei B'rith, the ADL, and AIPAC are actually good for Israel.
So, why am I so facetious? It is SO frustrating how the Israeli public keeps repeating the same mistakes over again, expecting different results. We believe we're voting for a "right-wing" coalition, when in fact they're all just the same, more concerned with what the so-called "international community" thinks of us, rather than what its own constituency thinks, not to mention what HaShem thinks. Binyamin Netanyahu gave away control over Hevron, Yericho, and Azza, not Yitzhaq Rabin. (*Sure, Rabin gave Arab guns, but does most of the Israeli public even remember that?)

Ariel Sharon kicked almost 10,000 Jews out of their homes, not Shimon Peres. (Well, actually, that's not exactly true, is it? Who was really in control of the "Sharon Government?")
Naftali Bennett's "plan" for Arab autonomy and granting other Arabs Israeli citizenship violates the negative commandment of "lo techonem" (Deut. 7:2)*. So do all other leftist land giveaways. But, Bennett has a kippah on his head, and that's suppose to mean something, right??!! No. Not really.
Bennett's Plan vs. Arafat's Plan Can you tell the difference?
As "impractical" and "unrealistic" this may sound, we need to be talking just as much about the long-term, and not just about the band-aids to fix the unfixable, unfair and (yes, I am going to say it...)ultimately anti-Torah, Israeli system of government.
As I hinted above, the average Israeli (...and the surveys always say that's religious/traditional, right of center, and against all land giveaways) continues to vote for those whom he believes stand for what he stands for, and is continually disappointed.
One of the biggest problems is the self-perpetuating, legislating from the Bench, Israel Supreme Court. Its justices are not going
anywhere, with or without legislation. The only thing getting rid of them is some event or events which will
them to reveal their foreign passports (alla former Knesseth SpeakerAvraham Burg), and to escape
on the first plane out of here.
This Court is the ultimate example of the illusion of an Israeli democracy.
In addition, the masses have been thoroughly indoctrinated brainwashed into believing that the State of Israel is a real democracy, and that it has successfully adapted this Hellenist form of government to fit the Jewish People. Even though Jews are obligated to live according to HaShem's Will, vis-à-vis the Torah, and the number of conflicts between Israeli Law and Torah Law rises on a regular basis. And so, the Israeli public has been convinced that it must [settle to] be like every other nation in the world.
So, do we really need a Constitution,...like every other nation of the world?
No. Of course not. We have the Torah.
Besides, any Constitution which ever gets written will undoubtedly
*This assumes that Israel is in actually control over the Land (eg. issues the local currency, etc.). Sometimes, I'm not so sure.
WONDERFUL POST - NOW YOU JUST NEED TO FINISH YOUR FINAL THOUGHT.
מי שמבין, יבין. ;-)
Seriously, though, praying and waiting around for Mashi'ah as a strategy is looking pretty good to me right now. :-/
Its a real joke this business of “TRYING TO SAVE AMONA” (Ha!) – its just another Netanyahu merry-go-round and Chanukah catastrophe!
Esser Agaroth, well said. Actually, very well said! ,observing Torah is not "sitting around", it's doing what we are told to do and not what we think's better.מי שמבין, יבין
Don't get me started.
It's just another event to keep the masses occupied.
I recommend that we pay attention to the back pages of the news, and to what doesn't make the news, such as what legislation gets passed, and what treaties get signed, while nobody is looking.
