Israel's Biased Media

The media is evidently biased in that anything that legitimizes or portrays a struggle that is contrary to government policy is blacked out of media. Likewise, broadcasts for government policy of liberalism, democratic equality, heroism of hellenized progress, Arab integration, peaceful arab co-existence and progress to that extent, gays, lesbians etc.. are emphasized as hallmarks of Israeli desires and postive methedology. In the process, the public is unknowingly as in most societies taught what only a few decide must be taught.

For example, when R' Meir Kahane was repressed, unfairly treated in so many ways be it rallies, in the Knesset, avoided democratic fairness, radio or television talk time banning, and even his killing was all glossed over and dug under the carpet. More recently "Ghandi" too was killed and very little media was given to his views of a Jewishly rooted idea. In contrast, Yitzchak Rabin was given such huge coverage, that today so many years later, there are continous heart felt broadcasts of his loss. All this because Rabin cloaked the Governments policies.

We know what needs to be done.

Hellenized Jews & Gentelized Hebrews

R' Meir Kahane clearly & prophetically aroused the real issue almost a century ago that we so squarely face today - the hellenized Jews and Gentelized Hebrews. Never in history have we seen Jews turn against Judaism and Jews for that matter as we see today. No other time in history witnessed the proselytization, guilt to stand Jewish and hence the "changing" of Judaism to fit human consumption, as if it were not divine at all.
So the "Zionist" pioneers who sought to do away with Judaism and produce the newly invented zionism without Judaism forced the removal of sidelocks and Kippahs in return for the hellenized form of Kibbutz life. Today, these Jews whom held Judaism strong in foreign lands for 2000 years lost it quickly iin the holy land no less by their Jewish brethren. Today, we reap the fruits of their labour, as the gentilized Hebrew has replaced belief in God with the worship of drugs, sex and disastrous liberties, the yoke of heaven with the liberties to destroy oneself, the specialness of a Jew with the poor copy of a Western culture for the pursuit of "I" and materialism.
So on April 1st 2007 Jimmy Carter is awarded the "truthteller" award by no less the hellenized Jewish West presented to him by "Rabbi" Leonard Beerman, founding Rabbi of the Leo Baeck Temple in Los Angles and board member of the U.S. Interreligious Committee for Peace in the Middle East. All this for having written the most absurd anti Israel book in the modern century. Are you surprised ? Don't be. It's the natural product of Hellenization.

Opposite Outcomes

Since the Oslo Accords and earlier Israel has rushed to embrace the Arabs. Ehud Olmert is found running to "hug" Abbas and it is only Condoleeza Rice of the USA who sets the limit to our embrace. Hamas is elected to government a shock to the embraces and unilateral "handing over" of Israeli territories and recognition to create a Palestinian state. The Knesset of Israel then encourages Arab MK's into government and promoting Arab MK Ghaleb Majadle to take over the Culture, Science and Sport Portfolio. It includes control of the Space Agency completely leaving Israel open to sensitive security issues in the hands of Arabs. Arab MK Majadle then claims the security checks on him are "racist". Weeks later a long standing Arab MK is found guilty of espionage against the Jewish state. Isn't this exactly what the Torah warned us not to do and would sensibly be the enemies reactions. Is there a Jew in any of the 22 Arab states with a position in government ? Hamas is now being legitimized, the Arab world has set the agenda for the price to release 1 kidnapped soldier in exchange for scores of Terrorists that our soldiers put their lives on the line nightly to seize. Egypt then Jordan set forth the plan to return our kidnapped soldier. Our leaders wait to be guided by our enemies as they set the agenda. Looking into it deeper, once sees, they are crying out for a tough stance by Israel to place the Arabs back. King Abdullah stated "the present Israeli PM is causing instability in the region and is a danger to the Middle East". Yes, amongst nations there must be leaders. Those who are attacked know what to do best. If they are Jewish, it is their God given task. The task is wide open for the taking and we are failing to be bold and stand up.

Jewish Laws Transgressed Today

Shemot 34: "Observe what I command you this day, Behold I drive I out .. less you make a covenant with the nations I drive out.. less it be a snare in your midst. Abarbanel: "For having taken their land, they will seek arms with Israel. That is why the verse states you have come upon the land - they have been "robbed" of it. So how will they observe a covenant of Love. Just the opposite, they will be a snare in your midst, and when there will be a war against you, they will join your enemies. Sheer Logic our leaders are ignorant of.

Halacha: When Joshua went into the land he gave them 3 options 1) Evacuate 2) Peace = Surrender - clear conditions of Tribute and Servitude. Both must be acceptable or there is war. (Sifri & Rambam: Melachim 6:1, 4:1). Servitude means they shall be humble and low and not raise their head in Israel, rather be subject under us and never be appointed any position over Jews. 3) War. These 3 conditions apply even for a voluntary war.

Of course this does not mean to mistreat them in Israel. Not only, but we are even obliged to provide them all personal rights. Certainly do not mix this up with Political rights.

In Joshua , in the midst of crossing the Jordan - a frightening experience & sight 12 X 12 miles of standing water - Joshua stopped to speak. Not for Jewish Law of Shabbat Kashrut etc, but to say the following "Know why you are crossing the Jordan, in order that you drive out the inhabitants. If you do this it shall be good. If not the waters shall come and inundate you". If not, they would be driven out of the land.

Bamidbar 33: "And you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the Land from before you. But if not, it shall come to pass that those which you've left remained of them shall be thorns in your eyes and thistles in your sides and shall torment you in the land that you dwell. It shall be that I will do to you as I thought to do to them. Rashi : "You shall drive out the inhabitants and then you shall inherit it, then you shall exist in it and if you do not you will not be able to exist in it". Sforno: "When you shall eliminate the inhabitants of the land then you shall be privileged to inherit the land and pass it down onto your children. But if you do not eliminate them, even though you will conquer the land, you will not hand it down to your children. Or Hachaim: "Not only will they hold that part of the land that you did not possess but even concerning that part of which you did possess and settle in, they will distress you and say rise and get out"

Mitzvah: To Hate Evil
The Jew has a difficult time in hating evil and hence practicing this part of Judaism. This too is a mitzvah no less than practicing kindness, yet our society has really warped our sense of truth beyond the apparent. Perhaps this is one of the many reasons G_d is bringing our enemies to such violence to arouse our sense of exercising the truth to hate evil.
The Final Law: Shulchan Aruch
The Shulchan Aruch states any "Acum" = Non Jew is not allowed to own land in Eretz Yisrael. We all know the Shulchan Aruch only brings down laws that are applicable to our times. Sacrifices and the like are all excluded.

The True Solution Surfacing

Today the Govt is to weigh Gaza incursion against Kassam rocket attacks. The government is and has weighed every option. An incursion, full restraint, targeted attacks of the upper terrorist leaders, or even reoccupation. The consensus - no solution. Herein lies the cowardice to state the truth. The one option purposely omitted is the conquering of the enemy and reclamation of territory. It is omitted because it goes against the grain of unilateral width drawls. There is fear of being non-democratic, there is fear of the operation and it's impact in the eyes of the world and Israel's population. The step would represent too bold an action and seems impossible. The government evacuated all Jews from the area that on a practical level, effectively acted as a guard to Arabs building weapon caches and firing on Israeli towns such as Sderot. All the above are the true answers for this option's omission. Now stare at the reasons and ask yourself is it the right course. No it's not. We must come to terms that the god of Israel is real, albeit hidden behind the scenes as conjured in the bible at this time in history. The direction is clear from God's message handed down to us in Chumash, Joshua, Judges, Shmuel, and Yeshayahu. The land of Israel was promised to us and we must not be afraid of conquering our enemies in war. If we do so with the this correct knowledge and belief, we will prevail - and easily - even miraculously. The choice is one of freewill at this point. The Arab attacks are only meant to stir the correct thought and shake off the fears mentioned above. Today Jordan's King Abdullah is scheduled to meet Palestinians chairman Mahmoud Abbas. The topic in the kings mind is that of confederation. The beginnings of the real solution to move the Palestinians back to Jordan their 1 of 22 Arab states. The shame is that it does not come from Israel but from Jordan ! Yes, Jordan has all to lose on this option, Israel has all to gain, yet it isn't in the minds of the Jews but surfacing from Jordan. The real tragedy, is that Jewish freewill is failing as a whole, and Godly intervention is occurring. As this unfolds, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Shimon Peres are back to their rhetoric of revived and serious peace talks with the Arabs. They are on autopilot to embrace the Arabs at all costs, as they dodge the firing bullets, the mocking Arabs, and the crying Zionists of the settlements. Only sitting silently between attacks, and waiting when they can raise the issue again where public approvals are possible. Needless to say, the handing over of Yehuda Veshomron - the geographical heart of Israel has been postponed not by Israel, but by continued and sustained attacks by Arabs timely implanted by god himself.

What is a Jew ?

What is a Jew ?
The history of the Jewish people entails criticism of the prophets for having left the belief in God all throughout Tanach. After so many years of existence as a Jew and Jewish people, the defining factor of the nation was and is adherence to the Torah. It remains our only definition. The monumental events of the holocaust occurred only after the Jew wanted to melt into their foreign German culture (Haskalah). Specifically timed by God, after such a horrible event we emerged miraculously and almost undeservedly (by Torah standards) to come to Israel. Then in Israel we won miraculous wars against all odds, gaining back our ancestral territory not on merit but on ancestral promise by god. It is now only less than 60 years later, survivors are still around, and the Israeli is ashamed to be a Jew. The Israeli amazingly sees life without god's hand.

He asks what is a Jew ? I am an Israeli. He asks what is Israel. I will move to where I can have a good and easy life. Why are we hated and attacked ? We aught to give more land and embrace more enemies. Why are we different. We aught to be like all other nations.

Amazingly, the "learned" Jew of the exile - has successfully divorced Eretz Yisrael with Torat Yisrael. Something so inseparable in the annals of our spiritual and historical existence. Something yearned and dreamed of for so long that it kept us alive for 2500 years in the exile. Today, it is chosen - not to come live in the chosen land.

God said it once, twice, thrice, perhaps hundreds of times। You are a nation separate from all other nations. Holy and hallowed to be mine, in my chosen land. Given secrets of the universe to those who choose to know it. A gift to be as close as possible to the creator - a gift of ecstasy no greater nor will there ever be.

How is it that after 60 years, Israel has successfully grown a generation ignorant to their heritage, lost in their outlook, and only Jewish by the token language of Hebrew. The revival of the Hebrew language was doubted by secularists who felt it was too 'radical' yet today stands as the only testimony and thread of Jewish heritage. The committed Jews from days of yore instituted Hebrew as the minimal requirement with a view to the future, and today it remains as a prized difference amongst the nations. Imagine, if the Knesset today had to vote over an issue like that within the same framework that existed then, surely the Gentelized Hebrew leaders would have all voted for speaking English.

How is it that 95% of those leaving Israel are secularists in search for money in America while 95% of those making Aliyah to Israel are faithful to the Torah?

How is it that we expect an Arab to sing our national anthem with our words "The Jewish soul" and be a part of our national history and of course our Jewish heritage ? After all, Herzl wrote his first pamphlet entitled "The Jewish State" not to be open for takeover by any foreign majority.

How is it that we are to be a "light unto other nations" while we copy and pursue the laws and lifestyles of these other nations we are to be leaders of ?

The chosen people chose not to be chosen but to be ashamed।
