A Voice Repressed in Israel

There are no less than 3 Arab parties sitting at the helm of our Jewish parliamant "Hadash" led by Mohammad Barakeh, "National Democratic Assembly" led by Jamal Zahalka and "Ra'am Ta'al" (Arab Movement for Renewal) led by Talab El-Sana. In the course of Israeli history there have been mind boggling so called Jews whom formed a party to bolster Arabs and remove any trace of Judaism from Israel - they call themselves "Meretz Yahad" led today by Zahava Gal-On with no less than 5 seats . Previous's Knesset also showcased 2"Shinui" parties, "Secular Faction" , and a host of others. While there are religious parties they have all effectively been neutered and today not one can stand for an all Jewish state a large group of Jews aspire and have been as prescribed by the Torah for 3000 years. These parties deem to represent Torah, yet they fold to it's most basic precept. Exclusive dominion of Jews in the land of Israel. (View Torah, Book of Joshua, Maimonides etc..) A Jewish state without interference and without melting of societies has been effectively outlawed by the Israeli Supreme Court in 1988. The first and only party led by an esteemed and genious Rabbi Meir Kahane clearly delineated the sources and single handidly out debated any other false created notion built up over the years of exile and assimilation. His party for fear of power was quickly outlawed for embracing this all Jewish concept proven by Maimonides, The Prophets, and Torah. The same year we saw Arab parties indicted and released freely to voice an outright rejection of the jewish state with it's sole purpose of Arab priorities and even outright treason and plotting with enemies against the state

Certainly the ruling Labour and Kadima parties in power have no intentions of an all Jewish homeland. Their platform is to embrace the arabs in a united melting pot of Jews and Arabs washing away any distinctiveness the Jewish people may possess. Intermarriage with Arabs are welcome and encouraged - a holocaust, world jewry is presently suffering worldwide while it's inate instinct calls for aliyah to the jewish homeland less than 1% make aliyah. Ghaleb Majadle is a top ranking Arab official, Science and Technology, Culture and Sport Minister opposses a change in current administration. Why ? well the Arab sector is the 2nd largest sector in the Labor Party ! Does it matter if the administration is the poorest Israel has ever seen. Of course not, the Arab agenda is not the Israel agenda. Obvious. Yes of course. On Who are those making aliyah - Labour / Kadima embracers ? Obviously not, those are with Olmert's son living in exile by choice and showing example. It is those who embrace Torah honestly, and cannot help to wonder why their Rabbi's stay.

A Jew who beleives that the land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people as per his Torah his ancestors lived by for 3000 years has no one in the Jewish homeland government to vote for. Sounds ironic ? It certainly is.

Why can't we have a Jewish Democracy. Yes, it excludes Arab enemies, and don't be fooled to think they are or ever were loyal to the Jewish state and it's homeland to the Jews. Does America have an Arab party - why not , there are 3.5 million Arabs in America more than all the Arabs in Israel. Not only a party, but one that doesn't beleive in America but Arab independence and autonomy in America. Such a thing is unheard of because it wouldn't be offered a platform to even begin. Yet no one dare say it is less of a democracy. In fact, it is heralded the democracy par excellence. So why the unheard of double standard -self imposed by folding and cowardly Jews in Israel. More so, Israel has the best defence and understanding being outwardly attaked since it's inception and before by all Arabs those in Jordan and beyond. Yet we fail to stand up and be proud Jews rather choose to be a product of downtrodden exile mentality.

Yehiel Leiter of Likud Visits Ra'anana

I would like to thank you for taking the time out to address Ra'anana last night. I did have a few questions that I would like to ask you and copy the Likud party as well. Let me begin..
1) The Arab facts.
a. Relatively speaking Israeli Arabs don't contribute back to the economy as the Jews so aren't they a huge economical drain? (Imagine if we saved expenses on Arab towns, security walls, additional army resources within Israel, technology against kassams etc..)
b. You mentioned Bibi cut childcare allowances because of the Beduins. But doesn't this inadvertently hurt the incentive for large Jewish families which is what we need and want. Why not tackle the issue head on to remove the Arabs and hence the coffers grow as does our security and definition as a people ?
You Spoke about principles.
2) Why not an all Jewish State ? Isn't that what we came to Israel for, to maintain our Judaism as a nation.
a. Why hasn't the Likud spearheaded the argument of Avigdor Lieberman to remove the Arabs from Knesset. This is an issue well overdue and glaring straight at us.
b. Why has the Likud under Bibi launched a lawsuit with the Supreme court to rule a Jewish state "racist" by the Kach party in fear of losing votes rather than keeping to principle. If Jabotinsky were alive I believe in 1990 he would have chose to lead the Kach party and not the Likud. He was a man of unwavering principles.
c. Why do we lean on low statistical numbers to mock Moshe Feiglin rather than respond to the issues of differences head on. His main campaign is not "Emuni" it's bringing Judaism back to a Jewish state. It's returning to our source. How else would you define a Jew? Wouldn't a true leader mend and unite this small faction within the Likud and work together ? (Feiglin approached Bibi to shake hands and congratulate his party leadership and was dissented. Would Jabo do the same with a foe let alone a party member ?)
d. Our dismal educational system requires injected life. But what else could possibly spur it than a genuine awakening of belief and spirit of Judaism that we've forsaken from our forefathers? Why else be in Israel. Isn't it Gods promise for Centuries of success in the land if we only followed his statutes ?
e. Our people are confused & tired of politics leading nowhere but how can we lead the Jewish people to anything worthwhile when we ourselves do not show Judaism as distinct and lofty as it should be. Perhaps to wear a kippah and keep Shabbat as a bare minimum within the party. Why not ? Are we afraid to show our Judaism for what they might say?
You may respond that these are unpopular sta to the stances toward the masses and hence a fear to state them outright. Nonsense, if you’re a principled party as claimed, and believes in this truth (if you indeed do) then ultimately it will prevail and only it will prevail for falsehood always falls at the end. If we saw the amazing miracles of 48, 67, the revival of ancient Hebrew, a flourishing state under war, etc.. why is it suddenly a leap of faith to run against the current despite how far reaching it seems. In the spirit of Jabotinsky (the basis of the Likud) – if you are sure your way is right – do it and it will be your way". In short, from whence will our salvation come – Washington or the God of Israel. If history has anything to say, the cards are stacked against the first.
I appreciate your time to respond even in very brief to my questions above.
Thank You

Short Response to the Jerusalem Conference 2008

To the Jerusalem Conference
It is clear from the outcome of this meeting most are quite impressed by the Professors words as front video on the webpage. It's important to bring out, that there is a clear false conclusion on some points. Yet on a single point it requires immediate response. Glaringly it is, the deterioration of military technological edge as the factor causing the losses of war. Example used is 1967 vs. 1973 wars and Lebanon onwards.

One need not be religious to answer as follows.
a) Do not remove the factor of godliness 100% in every event. Surely there must be some validity to a God who has promised this land to a people for 3000 years and the miracles seen on the battlefield in 48, 67 and onwards should not be discounted at all let alone to nil. Incidentally, the Torah clearly states that when success comes do not discount the living god and commit the victories to your own strength. This happens to be the major chastisement to the Jewish people throughout the bible and it's hold is well and alive in the ranks of government and university as shown at the Jerusalem conference.
b) One must not discount the weakness of Israeli government that bowed to American pressure not to respond in accordance with Israeli will and sense. Essentially substituting the God of Israel with the God of Washington.

These to a thinking individual who is even weak in belief but ponders the details and facts must be the essential reasons of failure. We are in full force to repeat the same historic mistakes as they are not acknowledged at all. How can they be then corrected? This is most frightening.

Your comments most welcomed.

Best Wishes
Yehoshua Pinto
