    Jews Don't Expel Jews!
    Jews Don't Expel Jews!
  • The end of Israel?
    Cal Thomas - TownHall.com - August 4, 2005   The "disengagement" later this month (which is actually a retreat and is seen that way by Israel's enemies) will not be the end, anymore than previous retreats, concessions, "good will" gestures and written documents have produced security or peace in the region. Only after Israel is destroyed will the West realize what it did and failed to do, but it will find convenient and comforting explanations to absolve itself from any blame. Jews, you see, are always responsible not only for the world's problems, but for bringing destruction upon themselves by virtue of their being Jews.

  • 'Children of Arafat' celebrate Israeli retreat
    By Ryan Jones - Jerusalem Newswire - August 5, 2005   Palestinian Authority-sponsored festivities celebrating the pending ethnic cleansing of all Jews from the Gaza Strip were marked Thursday by more inflammatory remarks by PA Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia. Last week Qureia told the Palestinian Arabs the internationally-backed “disengagement” plan was just another step towards “liberating” Jerusalem from the Jews.

  • From Vincent to van Gogh
    by Carolyn Glick - Jerusalem Post - August 4, 2005   The metaphor of shining a light on the enemy is an apt one. For like bats in a cave, the jihadi enemy prefers to operate in darkness - to obfuscate from us, his targets, his aims and his nature. This he accomplishes by hiding behind terms like "occupation" or "resistance" or "civil liberties" or by carrying out his terrorist operations against unarmed, unwarned civilians rather than face their military forces in battle.

  • The Vatican's flawed conscience
    Jerusalem Post - July 31, 2005   If the Vatican sees terrorism as a legitimate tool in the Palestinian struggle against Israel, as the Arab world does when it calls terrorism against Israel "resistance," perhaps the pope should say so. If so, he will have to explain why terrorism against Israel is legitimate while terror against England, Turkey, Egypt and Iraq is not. If however, the Pope believes that blowing us up in malls, or lobbing missiles at our cities, or murdering families on our roads is wrong, he should say that too, with "force and passion." And if he cannot afterward bring himself to defend our minimal right to defend ourselves, even with passive measures, such as the security fence, silence would be welcome.

  • Democracy's descent to darkness
    by Carolyn Glick - Jerusalem Post - August 1, 2005   These are dark days for Israeli democracy. We see in the behavior of the police, the courts and the Prime Minister's Office, that in their hysteria to push through a controversial plan whose benefits to Israel's national interests and security are unclear at best, everyone who objects to this plan – regardless of age, station or action – is suspect. Their homes are raided, their liberties denied and their civil and legal rights discarded. Is this really a price the Israeli public is willing to pay – for anything? Is this what we have come to?

  • Nazi echoes in the Gaza ‘disengagement’?
    By Jeff Jacoby - Townhall.com - August 1, 2005  Sharon's plan may be delusional -- instead of enabling Israelis to "disengage" from Palestinian violence, it will bring them more of it, and in deadlier forms -- but it isn't the Final Solution. And yet . . . And yet there is no getting around the fact that Israel is about to become the first modern, Western nation in more than 60 years to forcibly uproot a whole population -- men, women, children, babies -- solely because they are Jews. There is no getting around the fact that the forthcoming expulsions are rooted in the belief that any future Palestinian state must be Judenrein -- emptied of its Jews.

  • Why should the nations say: ‘Where is their God?’

    By Stan Goodenough - Jerusalem Newswire - August 2, 2005

    Let the priests, who minister to the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar; Let them say, “Spare Your people, O LORD, and do not give Your heritage to reproach, that the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, 'Where is their God?'" (Joel 2:17)

    Preparations are underway for extensive celebrations in the Middle East, and around the world. With less than two weeks to go to “D-Day” nothing, it is believed, can stop the “Disengagement” now.

    Normally when things get hot in this part of the world, around 2000 foreign reporters swell the ranks of the already excessive international press presence in Jerusalem. This happened during Operation Desert Storm, during the IDF’s Operation Defensive Shield, and again two years ago when the Americans went into Iraq to finish off Saddam Hussein.

    The IDF Spokesman reports that double that number, some 4000 foreign journalists, are coming in to cover the uprooting of 10,000 Jews from their northern Samaria and Gaza Strip homes. The vast majority of these journalists work for agencies that are hostile towards Israel and favor the Arabs.

    What a glorious day appears to lie ahead for them. Many will be gearing up to send glowing (and gloating) reports to their newsrooms; reports they believe will vindicate their untiring efforts to get Israel to relinquish land for a Palestinian state.

    Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s resolve to remove his countrymen from areas he himself urged them to settle in will prove to these journalists that they were always right, and he was always wrong.

    Meanwhile, people who have killed hundreds of Jews in thousands of acts of terrorism, and the masses that wholeheartedly support them, are arranging joint street parties for Hamas, the Islamic Jihad and the Palestinian Authority, who will celebrate together “the liberation of Palestinian lands.” Praises will descend to Allah from minarets in Gaza City, Khan Yunis, Hebron, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Ramallah and Shechem, and from mosques across the Muslim world, thanking Allah for this victory over the Zionist enemy.

    And the fatal flaw in every peace deal with the Muslim world: Israel’s pullout from Gaza, following its pullout from southern Lebanon and, before that, from the Sinai, will be understood to be just the latest in an inevitable series of retreats predestined to shrink Israel to the point of indefensibility, leaving her ripe for the kill.

    Against the backdrop of all we have seen and know to be true, Sharon’s insistences that Israel is not withdrawing because of Arab terror, and that the uprooting will not reward this terrorism and encourage more of the same, are empty, meaningless words. They will echo hollowly against the coffins of those Jews who will yet pay the price for this “Disengagement.”

    Here in Israel, the indigenous left-wing, anti-religious, media is intensifying its long-standing campaign to demonize those citizens who, out of conviction and religious belief, have chosen to live in the areas the press routinely calls “occupied Arab lands,” even though they are not.

    Joyful, too, will be the response of millions among the nations who have chosen to believe the media’s lies, who reject any right of the Jews to live in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, who treat the Bible as a book of fairy tales, and who deny the existence, and spurn the sovereignty, of the Lord.

    For all these people, the “Disengagement” is both Israel’s admission of defeat and confession of guilt. As far as they are concerned, its implementation is already assured.

    This will not be the first time that human beings shake their fists in the face of the God of Israel and declare Him impotent to intervene.

    His power and might were challenged by Pharaoh in Egypt, who vowed that he would never let God’s people go. He was taunted by Goliath of Gath, who scoffed at the shepherd boy confronting him, as if he could defeat a giant with a sling. More recently, He was dared by the owners of the Titanic, who brashly declared that “God Himself can’t sink this ship.”

    These attitudes constitute a fearless and foolish mockery of our God, Who has not only undertaken to return the scattered Jews to their land after centuries in exile, but Who has also sworn that, having brought them back, He will keep them in this land as a shepherd keeps his sheep. He has tied His name, and His reputation, to Israel’s survival against the greatest of odds.

    More than about Israel, more than about the survival of a nation against every conceivable attempt of man to destroy them; more than anything else, this Disengagement is about His name – the name of the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Savior of Israel.

    Thousands of years ago, after He had brought the Israelites out of Egypt “with a mighty hand and outstretched arm” their sinfulness tempted Him to destroy them in the wilderness. He chose not to do so out of concern for His great name, “that it should not be profaned before the Gentiles in whose sight I brought them out.” (Ezekiel 20:13-14)

    God would not allow the Egyptians or the Canaanites to mock and say: “‘because the LORD was not able to bring this people to the land which He swore to give them, therefore He killed them in the wilderness.'” (Numbers 14:16-17)

    Centuries later, as they wandered among the nations, the people of Israel profaned His name when, hated and homeless, they caused the gentiles to say: “These are the people of the LORD, and yet they have gone out of His land.” (Ezekiel 36:20)

    His Name faces being profaned once more, as the godless among the nations prepare to announce that “the LORD was not able to keep them in the land He swore to give them.” When they hear the news, more than one billion people will proclaim that “Allah is greater.” Even a greater number will be entrenched in their belief that there is no God.

    There appears to be little reason for hope. Which is precisely why, though it be foolishness to the world, we must abound in hope. Centuries ago, God told a dispirited Elijah that, as bleak as things seemed, He had reserved for Himself seven thousand in Israel who had not bowed the knee to Baal.

    Last week, many more than 7000 Israelis gathered in the town of Kfar Maimon, crying out in repentance before the Lord and calling on Him to stop this “Disengagement” and save Israel from her enemies. On August 2, they will gather once again to petition heaven.

    Oh, do not remember former iniquities against us! Let Your tender mercies come speedily to meet us, for we have been brought very low. Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name; And deliver us, and provide atonement for our sins, for Your name's sake! Why should the nations say, "Where is their God?" (Psalm 79:8-10)
