A Wedding by Another Name is an Arab Blood Feud

A Wedding by Another Name is an Arab Blood Feud

The writer begins:  To the best of my memory, I’m going to tell you a story that I heard from a well-known rebbetzin around 20 years ago (that actually took place long before).  An "Honorable" Wedding:

"All in all, 8 people were murdered 
in what became a blood-feud 
over leading this stupid dance"


Please contrast the above post at  MyrtleRising: When Aggression is Not Aggression—And When It Is  ******against the innocent Wedding Video that was staged and attended by the Shin Bet in order to entrap the "Detainees" they have been torturing in their "Jewish Division" Shabak basement!

The Father of the Bride: My daughter's wedding

I didn't know a private wedding would become so public. I couldn't have known that a beautiful and holy affair would later be trashed in the headlines as "The Wedding of Hate". Didn't think my new son in law, Yakir Ashbel, and my good friend Daniel Pinner would be arrested for dancing and waving guns as mere props to the song "Zachreini Na", a standard wedding song and dance that I've witnessed dozens of times at other weddings. And so, as father of the bride, I want to clarify a few points:

The wedding was on Dec.7, and the footage was released weeks later when public opinion against the Shin Bet was at its peak - all this an obvious attempt to demonize the hilltop youth and manipulate public opinion, as if to say: "It's OK now, you can torture the boys". And naturally it worked according to script, as rabbis and Yesha leaders all chimed in their condemnations of the hilltop youth and suddenly justified the Shin Bet in an embarrassing about face. [...] We know for sure that the Shin Bet had a heavy presence at the wedding, a fact nobody denies. So yes, there could have been "champagne" (codename of former Shin Bet provocateur Avishai Raviv) at the wedding, a beverage I never ordered...


Rav Stavsky* who is associated with the [...] "hilltop youth" and an influential figure....

"In the dark basements of the Shin Bet's department, severe, cruel torture is inflicted against innocents, as well as sexual harassment and cruel crimes against humanity," the rabbi asserts in the clip. R' Stavsky announces in the video that when it is ultimately discovered that Arabs were involved, the Shin Bet's Jewish terrorism department will surely be disappointed. "A military-dictatorial regime that is against the Jewish residents has for years been ruling Israeli territory liberated from the Arab occupier in Judea and Samaria," R' Stavsky says in the video.

Rabbi Eliyahu Accuses Shin Bet of 'cooking up' Extremist Wedding:

Rabbi Eliyahu indicated that the wedding was infiltrated by Shabak Provocateurs (remember the identical manipulations related to the Rabin assassination)."It's just completely absurd. We were at dozens of weddings and didn't see anything like this, I can't rule out that Avishai Raviv cooked this up," said the rabbi, mentioning the infamous ISA agent provocateur.[...] How is it that suddenly there's just one (wedding participant) and he's with a hoodie over his face and no one identifies him?," stated Rabbi Eliyahu, noting the one person present at the wedding who held a picture of the Arab baby. [...] "We're familiar [with ISA tactics] and there have been things in the past. Reports were written by jurists about similar incidents in which the Shabak (ISA) cooked (up incidents). So why shouldn't I think that's also the case here? Someone has an interest here ...

Slamming the lack of "proportions," he said, "120 Jewish children who were murdered are like nothing and these three are the main thing. How did things get flipped, so that the murderers are the victims and the victims are the murderers?"


The Jewish People were formed into a Nation at Har Sinai with Moshe Rabbeinu. Its amazing how immensely afraid of the Torah and our Jewish Heritage these subversive people are. For thousands of years the Jewish People have been praying for the return to Zion, and the blessings after our meals is strongly affiliated with our Avos, Avraham, Yitzchak, Yaakov, and the building of the Tribes into the Nation of Yisrael, with the blessings on the Land, and on our Spiritual Leader, Moshiach Tzidkeinu. (As if the world is not aware of the Chabad Chassidim who have made this the sole purpose of their Jewishness). So now we have a so-called Jewish State, filled with so-called Jewish People, but they are afraid of our future; afraid of our rai·son d'ê·tre, the most important reason or purpose for someone or something's existence?? Are these people who put the 'State' before the Word of G–D Jews?

A True Torah Outlook

As a young man, Eliyahu's father, the late former Sefardi Chief Rabbi of Israel Mordechai Eliyahu was a terrorist and revolutionary who plotted to [overthrow the State of Israel to] form a new theocratic government governed by halakha (Orthodox Jewish law).

Mordechai Eliyahu was arrested by the Shin Bet in 1951 and convicted at trial. But he served only 10 months in prison, despite being linked to a string of arsons and related crimes.

A decade later, he was appointed as a judge on Israel’s state rabbinical courts. Two decades after that, he was elected Israel’s Sefardi chief rabbi. He never distanced himself from the goal of installing a halakhic theocracy to replace the State of Israel.

Potent Words From one Commenter: The Rabbi speaks the truth. When it comes to getting their political way and influening the masses the Shin Bet (just like the KGB and CIA) will stop at nothing. In fact they KNOW this was done by Arabs but what does the truth or lives of a few Arabs matter if they can USE this order to more easily evacuate the "territories" of Jews prior to a hand-over to Abbu Mazen. The US did exactly the same before overthrowing Mozadek and installing their US compliant Shah of Iran. Nobody asks questions regarding the individual stabbing the Dawabshe baby's picture. He was one of few people there dressed in street clothes while everyone else was dressed in Shabbos clothing. I'm calling it Shaback provocateurs and an extreme case of Loshon Harah/Shfichat Damim and am awaiting for the continuation of things to happen as deemed from above.

No One Says it Better Than Meir:

So what is this ‘Kingdom of Israel’? For 2000 years in exile, Jews around the world said in their prayers “Let me witness the return to Zion” and concluded with the words, “blessed is He who restores His glory to Zion.” These Jews did not merely want to return to the land of Israel to build fields and buildings. They wanted more. They wanted to restore G-d’s presence in the land by creating a state that would spread the name of G-d throughout the world.

In the current ‘Jewish’ state, there is complete democratic freedom for all sorts of crazy ideas, except for Judaism alone which is declared illegal. In Israel today, the Torah’s solution to security problems is racist, the Torah’s views on international relations are incitement, and anyone who supports the Torah’s opinion over the laws of the state is an anarchist. Those who struggle with love for the land of Israel are arrested and their homes are destroyed.

In the State of Israel today we have leaders who do not understand the Torah and no one dares explain to them what a true Jewish state looks like, why the Jewish people to the land of Israel, and what right the Jewish people have to the land. Not only are we victims of this unfortunate situation, but you are too- you, the judge, and the prosecutor. All of us are captives of this reality. Each of us has a G-dly soul that wants to live a Jewish life and we all feel alone in our opposition to the state.

About that Monarchy ...

Hezekiah's Royal Seal Impression - A Small Dot That Revealed A Monarchy

A Small Unnoticed Dot Reveals a Monarchy

“This is the first time that a seal impression of an Israelite or Judean king has ever come to light in a scientific archaeological excavation,” said Dr. Eilat Mazar, who is directing the excavations on behalf of the Hebrew University.

Then one day, "b’et ratzon", in a favorable time, as we say in Hebrew, Reut Ben Aryeh, systematically reviewing all the bullae, took another look at the tiny bulla. This time she finds a small miniscule dot that she happened to miss the first time. A glimpse of hope flickers as the odds might finally turn in the bulla’s favor. 

The dot appears in the middle of the word that reads “Malkiyahu”, forming quite a significant space between the first and last part of the word. Suddenly it takes on a completely different meaning, from probably just being another government official’s surname to actually reading “King of Judah”. A significant game changer.



This fascinating observation and article can be read at City of David website

As a friend of mine likes to say, "there are no coincidences". The rediscovery of this tiny bulla upon closer inspection reveals the official seal of the King of Judah. This should give those pause, those and fear-laden headlines about a group of teenagers that desire the return of the monarchy with a King as its leader. Those in power should now be trembling because of this sign from Above (no coincidences, remember). The "b’et ratzon", in a favorable time, became now in the year 5775 to signal to those that fear Mashiach ben David.

Since You Asked ... Do I Live in a Police State?


Yes, I think we do live in a police state. Why? Because to torture a young person in the way the SHABAK did is very very evil. They are not Jews. No Jew could do this to a brother.

 At one point the Prison Authorities would not release the detainee: "Honenu legal aid group says parents of suspect told by prison they got 'order from above' to breach court order , in 'illegal arrest. '

"The government has done away with the Writ of Habeas Corpus, done away proper judicial oversight, and it has destroyed the lives of countless right wing activists and residents of Judea and Samaria by continuing to leak videos and information despite a legal gag order. No charges have been filed and lawyers have been kept from seeing their clients.

"In the darkest days of Oslo and Gush Katif, it was never this bad. If good citizens do not stand up for what is right, then government, right or left will continue to get out of control. The police will continue o step over our rights. Now is the time to raise our voices before it is too late."





This reminds me of our slavery 'in Mitzrayim' and our torture and murder 'by the Nazis'.

Oh, wait, I forgot Torquemada, the Grand Inquisitor!

The Pope went on to appoint a number of inquisitors for the Spanish Kingdoms in early 1482, including Torquemada. A year later he was named Grand Inquisitor of Spain, which he remained until his death in 1498. In the fifteen years under his direction, the Spanish Inquisition grew from the single tribunal at Seville to a network of two dozen 'Holy Offices'. As Grand Inquisitor, Torquemada reorganized the Spanish Inquisition (originally based in Castile in 1478), establishing tribunals in Sevilla, Jaén, Córdoba, Ciudad Real and (later) Saragossa. His quest was to rid Spain of all heresy. The Spanish chronicler Sebastián de Olmedo called him "the hammer of heretics, the light of Spain, the savior of his country, the honor of his order".

Yaakov Avinu's Sheep

Say Hello to Rachel
(courtesy Gil Lewinsky/Mustard Seed Imaging)

Jacob sheep trace their origins to the ancient Middle East. The sheep were sometimes kept as ornamental animals on British estates due to their spotted coats and their tendency toward multiple horns. Sheep usually have two horns, but Jacob sheep have four to six horns, including large curved horns that frame their face. They are also prized for their resistance to disease and the high quality of their fleece, though they do not produce a large amount of fleece.







Genetic markings for this breed date back at least a few thousand years. The journey for this breed of sheep began in ancient Syria (also the biblical home of Laban) and led through North Africa. Moorish invaders brought the breed to Spain, then to England, where the animal was something of a trophy sheep. A number were brought to North America, originally for zoos and then later for commercial use.




The breed received the name “Jacob sheep” based on Genesis Chapter 30, when Jacob talks about leaving Laban’s home and taking part of the flock as his payment for years of service. “I will pass through all thy flock today, removing from thence every speckled and spotted one, and every dark one among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats; and of such shall be my hire.” (Genesis 30:32)

Could the Following be Because of Yaakov Avinu's Kabalistic Breeding Methods:

In addition to their nomadic history, the sheep also have another uniquely Jewish characteristic: they suffer from Tay-Sachs disease, a genetic disorder that afflicts Ashkenazi Jews.

Tay-sachs disease comes from a narrow inbreeding of chromosomes, which is why the purebred sheep, which all originated from a small genetic pool, have a similar issue. The Lewinskys (Mr and Mrs. hope to import them) hope that doctors will study Jacobs sheep to understand more about how the disease afflicts people.

Today, there are just a few thousand Jacobs sheep worldwide, mostly on heritage farms in England and North America. The Lewinskys hope to establish the first heritage farm in Israel to raise Jacob sheep. They want to return to Israel and buy a farm in the Golan Heights, where the mineral-rich soil means they won’t have to provide supplemental minerals like farmers do for this sheep in other parts of the world.

Baruch Shem Kavod Malkuso L'Olam Vayed

 Loving of Eretz Yisrael ... but the Government not. I think you have expressed what many Israelis are thinking and feeling.

Rabbi Richter's video, Torture in The Holy Land Nothing New, gives us a comparison between what is going on now and how it is the same political hatred that was perpetrated in 44-1948. Now I truly understand why the Satmar Rebbe was so against the early xionists, NOT ERETZ YISRAEL. The number of xionists included in this rape of society and the misleading of Jews for so many years is astounding. Their paranoia of anything religious is worse than the Nazis' Y'MS ideology. They wanted to kill bodies, but the Zionists are determined to destroy the spiritual. But soon it will be all over. No one can keep G–D from bringing the redemption. They cannot fight HaShem much longer. Already they are exhibiting panic and distorted fear. They will lunge out with their "laws" to try and control the truth from being realized.

SultanKnish in his Duma and the Return of the King is a factual condemnation in all aspects of the state's hypocrisy and evil. I hope more Israelis awake from their idol worship of the State. I agree with all those who have spoken and written in defense of the detainees. And Yes, the Vilna Gaon said we must fight them with all our strength because they are worse than all our enemies; they only want to kill our bodies, but the xionism wants to rob our souls.

Healing Miraculous Waters:

In chapter 47 of the book of Yechezkel (Ezekiel) a miracle is described that will take place in the future via the Holy Temple. A small stream of water will flow out from the Holy Temple, which will become larger once it leaves the Temple. Many trees will be by the edge of both sides of this stream. In verse 8-12 we learn, 

"These waters issue out towards the eastern region, and go down into the Arava (plain); and they will enter the sea, to the sea of exiting waters and the waters shall be healed.  And it shall come to pass, that every living thing, with which it swarms, wherever the streams shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: so that everything shall be healed, and shall live where that stream comes. 

And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from En-gedi as far as En-eglayim; there shall be a place for the spreading of nets; their fish shall be of various kinds, like the fish of the great sea, exceeding many. But its miry places and its marshes shall not be healed; they shall be given for salt. And by the stream upon its bank, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for food, whose leaf shall not wither, neither shall its fruit fail: it shall bring forth new fruit every month, because the waters issue out of the Temple: and its fruit shall be for food, and its leaf for medicine".

Change Comes From Letting Go

Complaint filed over ISA torture
allegations in Duma case


Rabbi Stavsky speaks out:
"It is known that all the acts they seek to attribute to Jews were committed by Arabs," Rabbi Daniel Stavsky declares in the footage obtained by Ynet on Friday. "And the agent provocateurs in the Shin Bet's anti-Jewish department did it to frame them." ""In the dark basements of the Shin Bet's department, severe, cruel torture is inflicted against innocents, as well as sexual harassment and cruel crimes against humanity," the rabbi asserts"

"Rabbi Stavsky announces in the video that when it is ultimately discovered that Arabs were involved, the Shin Bet's Jewish errorism department will surely be disappointed." "A military-dictatorial regime that is against the Jewish residents has for years been ruling Israeli territory liberated from the Arab occupier in Judea and Samaria," Rabbi Stavsky says"


HaKol Yehudi: The heart of the conflict or the heart of world peace? Is the Temple Mount really a powder keg at the center of the conflict? The discussion on the topic misses the point. The Mount and the Temple are the goal, not a step along the way.[...] The Temple Mount is not just part of the land of Israel, rather it is the heart of the land (in general we should refer to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount as the ‘center’ of the country, rather than Tel Aviv). Not for nothing was the Temple Mount bought by King David on behalf of all of Israel. There is a deep reference to this in the words of the Rabbis, “A metaphor to a king who placed his son in charge of all his property. The son said to his father, ‘If you don’t give me your throne how will everyone know you love me?’ Likewise G-d gave the whole world to Avraham. Then Avraham said if you don’t give me the Temple Mount, it’s as if you gave me nothing. So G-d gave him what he asked for” (Shemot Rabbah 15,8). We see from this that the gift of the land to the Jewish people can be likened to the mundane process of dividing land among servants and we are among them. However, the giving of the place of the Temple, ‘G-d’s Throne,’ reveals a deeper connection between a father and son. Further this elevates the giving of the land as a whole to an incredible show of love.

Despite the different opinions about going up to the Temple Mount, there is no doubt that every Jew believes that this place is ours. If the Prime Minister goes before the nations of the world and gives up the Temple Mount, we’ll tell him simply, ‘Who gave you the right?!’ Furthermore, millions of people from each and every nation are part of the recognition that the Temple Mount belongs to the Jewish people.

Point of View by Rabbi Moshe Grylak in Mishpacha Jewish Family Magazine. An excellent article, entitled In the Name of Jewish Pluralism, December 23 issue. "Yaakov Avinu taught one truth, but showed us in his blessings to his sons that thee are 12 different ways to live it. No doubt this comes as a surprise to the chassidim of pluralism in our times, who love to slam Torah-observant Jewry, but pluralism is a Jewish invention too. The Pluralisher chassidim might not like it, but its a fact. It was invented by the Hebrews in ancient Egypt, before Israel even solidified as a people. It happened at the very end of Yaakov Avinu's life as he lay on his deathbed. [...]"  You will be able to link to this article after this week's issue is printed. I highly recommend reading it.

Selection of Sayings of the Vilna Gaon

# RE Dov bar Leib's blog:  "on Nachal Yavok where Ya'akov wrestled with an angel, on the other side of the Yavok, after dividing his wives, children, and servants into "two camps" to prepare to go to war with Esav " below is a saying of the Vilna Gaon on the #"dividing of the wives":

On The Erev Rav

"Eisav and Yishmael are entwined in Avraham and Yitzhak, but the `erev rav are entwined in Yaakov; they are more problematic to Israel and to the shekhina, for they are the leaven in the dough - for all the misers and those who do not support the Torah are from them" - Tikkunei Zohar, p. 35.

...And see the profundity of their statements made about the blight, and yet there is a fourth kind: `and they have mingled (in Hebrew, Vayitarvu, related to the term Erev Rav) with the nations and learned from their deeds' - these are themselves Jews who adhered to the `erev rav and became like them...and this fourth kind is the most difficult of them all, and they are our brothers who have soured" - his commentary to B'rakhot 54:

And in the book of Tikkunim of Zohar Hadash (p. 54) we find written: "As for Yaakov, because he foresaw the pressure of the last exile in the end of days, the Torah says And Yaakov was very much afraid and felt troubled, and he divided up the holy nation in exile into three divisions, and he placed the maidservants and their children first, and Leah and her children behind them, and Rachel and Yosef last "

And the Gaon wrote there:

# The three divisions are as follows: the `erev rav, the good simple people amongst them, and the scholars. The maidservants and their children first - these are the `erev rav made by Lilit, the bad maidservant, of whom it is said: And if a maidservant should inherit her lady, and also her sons, who are the leaders of the holy nation in the last exile, as it is said: Her foes became her leaders, as it was said in "Raaya Mehemna" (Zohar 3/125).

Leah and her children behind them - they are the good simple people.

Rachel and Yosef last of all - they are the scholars of whom Rachel is the chief of the house... They are last because they are downtrodden and debased, as it is said: Those who fear sin will be despised, and the wisdom of the scribes [alt. translated as counters] will be rotten, as he went on in R.M. (ibid., and see Sanhedrin 98.). See: Leshem, Shevo V'Ahlama, Introduction and Contents, p. 46, explanation.

The main force of the `erev rav is at the gates of Jerusalem by the entrance of the city (The Great Period, 503-504).

This seems to be a shift and a change in the definition of `erev rav from what we have seen in the other quotations (full of desire, argumentative, honor-seeking, hurrying to give instruction though they are unqualified to do so, etc.). It would seem that this point mentioned by "Kol HaTor" of the resistance to the realization of the redemption of the Jews was not expressed in the other utterances by the Gaon regarding the `erev rav.

This, however, is what R. Hillel of Shklov explains to us: the nation of Israel has suffered so many tribulations during its horrible exile (see MahaRal, Netzah Yisrael, the beginning of chapter 49), and our heart boils over with distress at the memory of our terrible debasement, both in spirituality and in materiality. How, now, can there arise out of our nation Sanballats to destroy and disrupt the restoration of the nation of Israel in its land? The only explanation possible is that they really are full of desire, argumentative, proud etc. - lacking true links with the Jewish people or with the Torah of Israel.

We must not take into consideration that some of them do actually have some superficial knowledge of Torah (see Adderet Eliyahu to Deut. 32:20) for My people is foolish, they do not know Me... they are wise in causing evil, but know not how to do good (Jeremiah 4:22). That is, if they are not G-d-fearing - they do not know Me - they will turn the words of the living G-d into lies and deceit. The proof that their hearts are impure is that they are not distressed at the disaster of Yosef (Amos 6:6). They do not feel sorrow at the disaster of the entire Jewish people, though they chatter Torah-like platitudes of love of Israel. 

"And they heal the disaster of My nation too easily, saying `Peace, peace!' - but there is no peace!" (Jeremiah 6:14). Further proof, instead of quarreling with the nations of the world who cause us distress, they choose to argue and quarrel with the faithful of Israel - all by virtue of those very same characteristics defined by the Zohar (I/25).

Tyranny and Perverted Justice with UPDATE VIDEO

“There is no crueler tyranny ‘than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of Justice.”
French lawyer-philosopher
Georges Montesquieu

I sincerely hope that this issue does not disappear from the media and the ISA either releases the boys because of lack of evidence for a trial, or a trial is held to aquit them. And that there is an true investigation with reforms instituted in the Jewish Division of the Shin Bet.



UPDATE: Video from Tel Aviv Reenactment of ISA Torture Techniques. Link: HERE

Bennett: Duma suspects 'tried to dismantle Israel. Jewish Home leader defends Shin Bet interrogation of suspects, says they prevented 'Duma 2.’ [...] ”What stands before us today is whether we take responsibility for the state of Israel," […] "We need to take responsibility for the state, we are no longer individuals.” Allowing immoral and illegal  measures (whether approved by the leftist Supreme Court) is the height of hypocrisy: 


'There is no justification for sadism, Bennett’ .  Lawyer Keidar criticizes Jewish Home head, noting he has first-hand evidence of torture in Duma case, Shin Bet never denied using violence […. ] "I heard and saw first-hand what is happening in the investigation room, unlike you (Bennett) who are fed by claims being voiced by second-person and third-person sources," wrote Keidar [.…] "In these circumstances we found the need to turn to you while expressing discontent at this premature and artificial backing (for the ISA)," concluded the lawyer.

The fear expressed as ‘dismantling Israel’ is a fear of losing control, a fear of governance under the Torah, of values of moral responsibility and ethical justice as contained in Halacha.

“Every day it rises up a notchI didn’t sleep tonight and I won’t sleep tomorrow night unless something is going to change,” one detainee said in court on Sunday, according to Israeli daily Haaretz. “They are interrogating me violently over something I can’t help them with because I don’t know.” [...] “A whole night they abused me and we didn’t make any progress because I can’t help them. Now the abuse will only grow worse. I scream like I’m retarded, cry like a baby, and they laugh: ‘Murderer, murderer.’ Where will I escape to?… This is the worst disgrace the State of Israel has ever committed against a person,” the detainee told the judge.
















Attorney tells 'naive' Bennett: 'Talk to released detainees. Responding to condemnation, Ben-Gvir calls not to outright accept Shin Bet briefings, talk to released suspects who 'are now on sedatives.’


______________________

Jerusalem Post headlines reflect a sampling of the deterioration in Israeli society. 


Yaalon: Failure to put Duma attackers on trial could ‘set region on fire'. “They could carry out additional terrorist acts and murder innocents, setting the region on fire,” [...] “We are obligated to fight these terrorist activities. They violate our values and they are dangerous to us all.”

What are “our values” that he speaks of? Tyranny, persecution, abuse, torture? 

(Devarim 8: 1-9). [T]he Torah warns not to forget that the bounty comes from Hashem and that one should not say in his heart: "My strength and the power of my hand made for me all of this chayil" (ibid.: 17).

Yirmeyahu extends this phenomenon to the realm of intellect: "Let the wise not pride himself in his wisdom, let the brave not pride himself in his bravery, and let the wealthy not pride himself in his wealth" (Yirmeyahu 9:22). After mentioning the danger of abuses in those three areas, Yeshayahu warns also judges not to abuse the power associated with their high position (Yeshayahu 9:22).













Tear gas thrown at Palestinian home in ‘price tag’ attack. How coincidental (there are no coincidences), at a time when the Shin Bet is under harsh criticism for abusive measures there should be another similar incident? Was this a setup by the Shin Bet, or was it a message that there are others responsible for Duma and they are persecuting the wrong boys?

"price tag" graffiti nearby, "Revenge, regards - the prisoners of Zion".


Another symptom of the fuzziness of (im)Moral Equivalence Poisoning Israel

Michael Freund wrote a blazing article, Putting the villain before the victim: The immorality of treating terrorists first. Perverted leftist ideology has even infiltrated the emergency 'MDA Life-Saving First Responders' for Israeli victims of Palestinian stabbing and car-ramming attacks. It seems a left-wing outfit called Physicians for Human Rights complained about who treats who after a terrorist attack, meaning why treat Israelis first and then the perpetrator. So, the IMA decided to treat the injured according to severity of wounds, meaning they would treat the perpetrator before a Jew even if it was deleterious to the Jew.

ZAKA which is primarily composed of religious Jews, declared, “We direct ZAKA volunteers to first treat the Jewish victims of a terror attack without blinking an eye.”

Who Is Not Being Truthful? You Be The Judge.


Psychologists, Social Workers Protest Shin Bet Interrogation


The Professionals

We were shocked to hear a treatise of awful torture," wrote the specialists in a joint petition, responding to the abuse described by the Jews being held on vague suspicions of involvement in the arson murder, with no evidence presented against them.

"I strongly oppose any harm to human rights and particularly any harm to the rights of minors," said Prof. Guy Enosh of Haifa University's School of Social Work, who is among the leaders of the protest.

"Torture so as to extract admissions from suspects only exists in dark regimes," he said, bemoaning "where the state of Israel is deteriorating to if it conducts such things. Even the process of preventing contact with a lawyer is against human rights and has no place in a democratic state."

"As treatment specialists who respect the law and work in its systems, we are deeply shocked and concerned by this approach to the slippery slope of investigation and obtaining admissions under harsh torture, when it is clear to all that the goal of this investigation is meant only to decipher criminal acts - as serious as they may be - only after they took place."

"Some of the suspects who were investigated and underwent the treatise of torture for long days were released in recent days without any charges, and it is needless to note the physical and emotional damage they suffer currently and are likely to carry with them throughout their lives," wrote the professionals.

"Human rights organizations, and at their head the Israel National Council for the Child, must raise their voices against the torture and end it immediately."

We Hear From A Father

Duma suspect's father: 'Inquisition-like torture'

"Our son was on house arrest for three-and-a-half months, and on a Wednesday, 25 days ago, large forces arrived at our house and summoned him to investigation," he said.

"The father said he asked the forces what his son was being brought in for, and was told that he had breached the house arrest order. After testifying to them that he hadn't done so, and noting that detectives arrived at all hours of the day to confirm that, the father was told that they wanted to bring him in anyway, and "since then until yesterday I didn't see him."


http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/205268

When [the father] asked the ISA why his son is being treated so harshly and not being allowed to see a lawyer, "the laconic answer we received was that according to the laws against terrorists it is permissible to extend an arrest for 21 days without meeting a lawyer."

"To that they added an exemption from bringing our son to the court in order to clarify that he isn't undergoing torture and abuse, and here they issued an order that as far as we understand was legislated against 'ticking bombs,'" [....]

"There is a law [re ticking bombs] but it was legislated...for a specific goal, and it is being manipulated in a twisted, and I would say evil, manner, in order to use it for a goal that it isn't meant for."

Speaking about the Duma arson in July, he said, "this is a murder that was committed five months ago and it is clear to us all that the Shabak (ISA) doesn't know who committed it, or at the least knows that our son and the other boys certainly aren't connected to this issue, and nevertheless they are using this law against our children."

He said that he and his wife, as well as other family members, have also been arrested as part of the investigation in an apparent attempt to intimidate.

"The core of the matter is that the Shabak identifies us as the family of a murderer terrorist, and therefore our treatment is like that of the family of a terrorist who murders Jews," he said, noting that from the ISA's perspective "there's a Jewish terrorist who has support from his parents and therefore they also must be investigated, humiliated and punished."

He noted he was arrested on his way to a synagogue on charges of "disrupting investigation processes," had his fingerprints and picture taken, and was even told by an investigator "that I'm connected to a terror organization as far as he's concerned."

Noting that the suspects should be innocent until proven guilty, the father said that in court "my son told the judge 'I'm ready to admit to whatever they tell me just so they stop abusing me.' That's the most awful thing here."



Now the Politicians.

Netanyahu: ISA interrogations 'lawful': Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu calls attacks on the ISA 'unacceptable', dismisses evidence of illegal torture during Duma interrogations

Naftali Bennett backs ISA over Duma arson allegations: Duma arsonists 'terrorists' trying to undermine the State, Bennett says, gives ISA benefit of the doubt over abuse allegations.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked the latest to defend ISA, says she 'was told' interrogations were 'under the law.'
[to her credit she did not voice HER opinion, but said she "WAS TOLD"]

The People Protest Torture ....

Protesters were Singing, Dancing and Just Blocking Traffic to Show Their  Opposition of the Brutality of the Shabak on Jewish Boys.  Some held signs claiming "Inquisition" and "Jews Don't Torture Jews"


Duma suspect's father: 'Inquisition-like torture'

PLEASE READ THE FULL ARTICLE WHICH CONTAINS MANY FACTS AND SHOCKING INFORMATION:  Concerned father speaks about the brutal torture his son is undergoing, and the systemic effort to extract a false admission."Our son was on house arrest for three-and-a-half months, and on a Wednesday, 25 days ago, large forces arrived at our house and summoned him to investigation," he said.

"The father said he asked the forces what his son was being brought in for, and was told that he had breached the house arrest order. After testifying to them that he hadn't done so, and noting that detectives arrived at all hours of the day to confirm that, the father was told that they wanted to bring him in anyway, and "since then until yesterday I didn't see him."  ArutzSheva

Settlements Leaders Urge Netanyahu: Check Shabak Torture Allegations

Heads of municipal councils in Judea and Samaria on Monday urged Prime Minister Netanyahu for the first time to act with great determination to find the culprits in the Duma village arson murders. The council leaders also urged the Prime Minister to investigate the claims by the Jewish minors who are being detained in the case about violations of their human rights in the investigation. “The Ministerial Committee on the Shabak must be convened and exhaust the examination of the boys’ claims,” they said. “There must be an immediate clarification of the serious allegations of harsh torture of minors, which constitutes a serious violation of their human rights. We urge you not to drag the entire State of Israel into becoming a regime in which the investigator is also judge and executioner.” JPress

"They hung me upside down by hands and burned them,"

 What Are They Really Doing to These Youths?
Is This the Israel Security Agency (ISA) or ISIS?
The Truth Must be Heard
Justice Must Prevail
The State of Israel Will be Judged for Torturing Israeli Youth 

Israel Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet) abuse of the suspects in the Duma arson case was so cruel that one suspect attempted to commit suicide, it was revealed during a court hearing Sunday.

One of the youths the ISA arrested in the controversial case showed signs of depression before the court hearing, it was revealed Sunday, and the district psychiatrist ordered him under close observation. The psychiatric counselor determined that the suicidal suspect had been driven into severe depression and traumatic stress as a result of the investigation; he also had been prescribed sleeping pills by a doctor in his detention center due to sleep deprivation related to interrogation and torture.

The youth begged Justice Erez Nurieli at every court session to have mercy and release him from the ISA due to the treatment, it was also revealed.

"I beg Your Honor, I cannot endure this," the youth stated, in a recording that was played back to the boy's family. "Does the court have a way to control the investigation?"

"They hung me upside down by hands and burned them," he continued. "I feel like they're burning me up."

"Every day it gets worse and I don't know what tomorrow will bring."

Testimony also revealed that the ISA kicked the youth in the chest while he was handcuffed with his head bent, stopping him from breathing for a few minutes. He was also kicked several more times.

At the time, the youth asked to consult with his lawyer, and was refused; he was also forced to listen to music on Shabbat as he was interrogated, which is forbidden on Shabbat day.

The torture only grew worse, he revealed, to the point where the ISA kept him up most nights torturing him. They repeatedly demanded names and a confession, with the youth stating repeatedly that he has none to offer because he is not involved in the case.

Among other things, the ISA spent an entire night flogging the youth's back, he said, and begged the judge for medical treatment and legal counsel. The judge asked if the youth was taking the psychiatric medication prescribed to him, but he responded that the cure is not a pill to numb the pain, but stopping the torture.

"I would confess to everything, but I don't know how - I don't have what to tell them," he cried. He added that while he had a lawyer working on his behalf, the legal counsel was useless without the right to meet with him personally. "My lawyer has no idea what to do with me, since they hit my back all night," he said. "I asked them, 'kill me - give me poison.' Your Honor, I cannot endure anymore."


The youth was later found with scars on his hands and arms, attempts to open up veins.

"We presented today in court the youth's hands, which clearly show he made a suicide attempt - and all due to the investigation and interrogations he has undergone from the ISA," Attorney Adi Keidar, from legal rights organization Honenu, fired Sunday.

"In addition, today we exposed the continuation of the horrible conditions [he underwent], when it was made clear to us today that what the suspect argued before us, is claimed to have been during his detention before the courts."

"It's a horrible thing that should concern us that the justice system is arm-in-arm with police and the ISA prosecution," he added.

The ISA insisted late Sunday night that the organization, as a government organization, conducts all interrogations according to the letter of the law.

"ISA interrogations are conducted in accordance with the law and case law, and are overseen by the Attorney General, the State Attorney's Office and the courts," it said. "The claim that one of the detainees tried to commit suicide is baseless."

*The Defense Minister needs to be held accountable for the injuries inflicted on ALL of the detainees, and prosecuted for subversive and unwarranted accusals.
*The Supreme Court and the Judges that allowed the abusive measures to be instituted be brought to trial and eventually be relieved from the Court system.

I am so upset to have to post this traumatic testimony that the Zionist State of Israel deems proper in their eyes to abuse these young boys so harshly. What twisted mind would allow the persecution of these detainees in order to save face with the Arabs. The enemy is within. This is what happens when there is no Torah education, no knowledge and appreciation for G–D. This is a turning point in my estimation, from here it is only downhill. The Government will dissipate slowly, and only HaShem knows what will happen next.

Waiter, There's a Frog in my Lettuce!

This is just another cute story I couldn't resist. It comes (full) from the Jewish Press:


(JNi.media) Carmel Crops, a family owned farm located in a village in Israel’s Jezreel Valley, last week turned lemons into a heaping glass of lemonade, which received, so far, mostly congratulations from their customers. The company announced over its Facebook page:

“We want to share with you a complaint we received recently from one of our customers, regarding a frog that was found in one of our lettuce packages. This is a rare event in our daily routine, it isn’t right and of course the customer was compensated.”


“However,” the statement continues, “it is important to know that our Salanova lettuce is grown on a hydroponic surface, which allows us to avoid using pesticides, and so, in nature, as opposed to what goes on in industry, the animals want to stay alive and they try everything to reach our crops. Since we grow most of our vegetables without pesticides, we provide fresh vegetables clear of toxins, which are delicious, have high-quality and enjoy a long shelf life.”

And so, continues the pitch, “Who is this frog who dared to penetrate our hothouse? It’s the Hyla savignyi, an amphibian species living in puddles and on green plants in irrigated fields and gardens. It is active at night and during the day hides in secret places: clinging to shaded leaves and stems to keep its skin from drying out. Also — the Hyla savignyi is an endangered species.

“So why are we telling you this?” the Carmel Crops people are asking, and answering, “Because one of the main reasons for the disappearance of these amphibians is environmental pollution and the use of harmful pesticides: their moist skin is highly pervious to many substances, including pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and fertilizers, which are all dangerous to amphibians.

“Which means that the presence of the Hyla savignyi in our greenhouse growth indicates a sterile environment that does not contain pesticides and harmful insects. It serves as further proof that we are on the right track with our vision to produce and promote a healthy and balanced diet for the people of our country.”

Needless to say, the frog was alive when it was discovered inside the package.

In Retrospect

The Maccabees of old lived in a very fortuitous time. Had they lived today they would be accused of extrajudicial executions of the poor Syrian Greeks who, after all, were only trying to kill them and improve their civilization. At least that is certainly how the Foreign Minister of Sweden would have seen the matter. But since Sweden at that time was inhabited by pagan tribes and there was no Internet or media to speak of, we really do not know what the Swedish attitude towards the Maccabees would have been. We can certainly surmise though that it would not have been a positive one.

And if the current president of the United States were alive then he would certainly have been critical of the use of arms just to purify the Temple and regain the territory and sovereignty that was rightfully Jewish. He would have advocated conferences, shuttle diplomacy and above all, the willingness to compromise with an enemy that openly professed the desire to destroy you no matter what concessions are granted to it.

And the Maccabees were also fortunate that the European Union did not exist then. If it had, then the olive oil that the Maccabees searched for and eventually found to light the great candelabra in the Temple would have had to be labeled as being produced in areas of the Land of Israel that were previously occupied by the Greeks and now subject to the “occupation” policies of those stubborn Jews.

Needless to say, had the United Nations existed then the Maccabees would have been the subject of many resolutions condemning their policies, actions and behavior. But as mentioned above, the Maccabees lived at a time when none of this nonsense existed and, perhaps, that alone is one of the great miracles of our holiday of Chanuka.

We are not as fortunate as the Maccabees. For us, all of the above is not a parody but rather the reality of the world in which we live. So, the holiday of Chanuka must come to give us hope and determination and a renewed belief in our cause and our rights.

The Maccabees faced not only powerful external enemies but an insidious internal foe as well. The Hellenists amongst the Jews were so influenced and enamored by Greek culture that they actively proposed steps that would have completely snuffed out the Jewish state and Judaism itself. The defeat of the Hellenists within the Jewish world was as vital to the triumph of Chanuka as was the military victory over the Syrian Greek oppressors.

The Hellenists distorted Judaism to make it fit their own Hellenist–Greek template of what they considered politically correct and their view of an advanced civilization. The Torah and Jewish tradition in their eyes was antiquated and deserved to be ignored and/or rewritten to fit the then seemingly modern Greek view of the world.

Well, the current day Hellenists are alive and well amongst us. They are the leading Israel bashers and tradition haters in the Jewish world. They are driven by a false vision of Jewish values and a complete misunderstanding of the role of Israel in Jewish and world affairs. They not only give comfort to our enemies but in many respects they are our enemies themselves.

The Maccabees, if they were alive today, would certainly recognize them as the heirs and followers of the Hellenists of old. We should also think of them in those terms and react accordingly to their baseless charges and pernicious programs.

The recent spate of Islamic radical violence the world over has yet to change the mindset of the Western world regarding Israel. The Palestinian narrative regarding Israel is so fixed in the minds of Western academia, media and political leadership that almost no facts, no matter how obvious they may be, can somehow expose that narrative for its basic falseness.

The world has long known that the Jews are the canary in the mine. Nevertheless, the world not only tolerated but in many respects even encouraged Islamic violence against the Jewish state and its citizens. After all, only Jews are being killed and Israel is the catalyst for all the violence that wracks the Middle East.

But as Pastor Neimoller commented regarding the Nazis, they first came for the Jews and no one rose to object or protect them. Eventually they came for everyone and there was no one left who could object or protect the innocent. Well, they have now come for everyone, everywhere in the Western world. The Maccabees would certainly recognize our current world and they would instill within us the courage to resist annihilation and to rekindle the lamp of hope that Chanuka symbolically represents.

From a Shiur on Miketz by Rabbi Berel Wein Shlit"a

tenth of tevet special announcement

LazerBeams has an important post:

"This Monday night, 21 Dec., 2015, is the eve of the Tenth of Teveth. This is a fast day that commemorates the beginning of the siege of Jerusalem, which ended in the destruction of our Holy Temple seven months later on the ninth day of Av, or "Tisha B'Av".

"My esteemed and beloved teacher Rabbi Shalom Arush quotes the Chattam Sofer osb"m and explains that the Tenth of Teveth was the day that the Heavenly Court decreed that the Temple would be destroyed. Rabbi Arush explains further in the clip below, which I haven't had time to dub with English subtitles, that every generation who doesn't rebuild the Holy Temple is in effect guilty of destroying it.

"As such, each year, the decree is renewed in the Heavenly Court that the Holy Temple should remain destroyed. Therefore, the eve of the Tenth of Teveth is the opportune time to beg Hashem to reverse the decree, and rather than having the Temple remain destroyed for another year, it should be built this year. To invoke Divine compassion, Rav Arush is calling for a worldwide simultaneous recitation of the Shema prayer on Monday night, 21 Dec., 2015 at 9PM Israel time, which is 7PM London, 2PM NYC, 1PM Chicago, 12 noon Denver and 11AM Los Angeles. Please join us.

To further invoke Divine compassion, as Rav Shalom explains, we all must pray for four things:

That the Kingdom of Heaven should rule on earth;
That King David should rule in Israel;
That the Holy Temple should be rebuilt forthright;
That we should all return to Hashem in complete teshuva.

Rav Arush shlit'a stresses that this is a critical time and conducive for the Geula, the full redemption of our people.

Why the Shema? And why now?

Jewish Virtual Library: The Shema is an affirmation of Judaism and a declaration of faith in one God. The obligation to recite the Shema is separate from the obligation to pray and a Jew is obligated to say Shema in the morning and at night (Deut. 6:7).

Aish HaTorah: "Events in our world may seem to mask the idea that God is One. One day we wake up and everything goes well. The next day everything goes poorly. What happened?! Is it possible that the same God who gives us so much goodness one day, can make everything go wrong the next? We know that God is good, so how could there be so much pain? Is it just "bad luck"?

"The Shema is a declaration that all events are from the One, the only One. The confusion stems from our limited perception of reality. One way of understanding God's oneness is to imagine light shining through a prism. Even though we see many colors of the spectrum, they really emanate from one light. So too, even though it seems that certain events are not caused by God, rather by some other force or bad luck, they in fact all come from the One God. In the grand eternal plan, all is "good," for God knows best."

Unraveling of the Zionist Dream

This Spells the **Beginning of the Unraveling of the Zionist Dream: Wake Up From the Dream
Your Reality is in Trouble

NOW WE KNOW what "Exceptional Measures" means. The lawyers for the young detainees have finally met with their clients. And it's worse than suspected.

"Yesterday I met with a minor after 21 days and saw a man who was completely changed, something very difficult happened to him. Senior officers in the Shabak went into the investigation rooms and used torture methods and physical violence against a minor," said Keidar.

Read entire article: ArutzSheva

"The lawyer said his client revealed to him that "they don't let him sleep, he is handcuffed by his hands and feet. Senior investigators come in and start hitting him cruelly in sensitive body organs, until at a certain point he doesn't feel anything anymore, including kicks and slaps."

"Keidar also provided testimony regarding another suspect, saying, "he was prevented from sleeping for three days. The investigators started pulling his head back and he threw up violently. After he saw a doctor who said he needs rest, they continued the abuse."


  • "Children like these at the foundation of the state, without the peot (sidelocks - ed.) and kippah, were considered the pioneers and today with the kippah and the tzitziot they abuse them as if they were terrorists. The state is investing hundreds of thousands (of shekels) to pursue them, to put detectives on them, they torture them, and hit them with murderous blows.""Hashahar-Hakohen called to dismantle the Jewish Department of the Israel Security Agency (ISA), in statements that come a day after lawyers revealed ISA investigators are brutally torturing Jewish suspects in the lethal Duma arson amid a total lack of evidence. ArutzSheva

In today's TimesofIsrael article, "The usually taciturn Shin Bet security service lashed out against [so-called] Jewish terror organizations on Thursday, saying the groups display an “extremist, anti-Zionist ideology” and bear part of the responsibility for the current unrest in Israel and the West Bank." [...] "Jewish Home party Knesset member Betzalel Smotrich denied that the murder of the three Dawabsha family members was a terror attack, saying in a newspaper column that attacks by Jewish youths were “serious crimes,” which may be nationalistically motivated, but should not be equated with attacks by Palestinians.

Apparently referring to the Duma investigation, the ultra-conservative lawmaker further claimed the Shin Bet had “crossed all red lines.” Smotrich appeared to break a gag order on the probe, referring to specific suspects who had been taken in for questioning.

––––––––––––––––––––––––

The Shin Bet has come out to defend their actions based on misguided application of secular laws. They think they are protecting the Jewish People and State of Israel from a ghastly ideology: “extremist, anti-Zionist ideology”  but this is none other than living by a Torah and Halacha centered government. However, there must be a legal way to bring Shabak torturers to justice for extreme cruelty and abuse perpetrated against fellow Jews. The struggle for greater adherence to the Torah's prescription for life is on trial here!
  • *And the Defense Minister needs to be held accountable for the injuries inflicted on ALL of the detainees, and prosecuted for subversive and unwarranted accusals.
  • *And Abbass is behind his curtain of lies, laughing at how he manipulated Israeli public opinion to blame Jewish youth for a crime committed by another clan of Arabs against the Dawabsha Family.
  • *The Supreme Court and the Judges that allowed the abusive measures to be instituted should have nightmares and eventually resign from the Court system.
  • *One by one the conscience of all involved in Boogie's vendetta style persecution should be consumed with guilt, like many experienced after the Disengagement. IDF soldiers, young men, are leaving the IDF because of PTSD. The hypocrisy of Rules of Engagement is driving them to lose respect for themselves (cognitive dissonance).
UPDATE THIS AM: In an article on YNet: Attorney David Halevy added: "The legal system is supposed to restrain those conducting interrogations. Where are the human rights organizations? Where is the National Council for the Child?"

In response to the reports of Shin Bet violence, the Association for Civil Rights in Israel said on Thursday evening: "The attorneys' reports of the Shin Bet's use violence against the suspects in the terror attack in Duma raise grave suspicion of the use of illegal interrogation methods.

"This includes the use of physical force and sleep deprivation for extended periods. These interrogation methods have been excluded by the Supreme Court following petitions by the Association for Civil Rights, the Pubic Committee Against Torture and the Center for the Defence of the Individiual, which were partly based on reports from B'Tselem.

"We call on the Ministry of Justice to immediately investigate these complaints against the Shin Bet,"


This whole affair should shake the entire nation of Israel (like watergate) and produce self imposed reckoning, teshuva.

Israeli adults and children are starving; wages are so low Israelis live in constant bank overdraft, banks are making profits off of poverty stricken families by enticing them to make further loans (shame on them); and all the egos in the Knesset are more invested in keeping their positions; or in attacking one another; in maintaining their prestige, and none of them can see the handwriting on the wall. They need a Daniel to read it to them. The leftists are a curse eating away at all decency and the Peoples' Jewish Heritage.


Daniel reads the words, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN, 
and interprets them for the king: 
MENE, God has numbered the days of your kingdom 
and brought it to an end; 
TEKEL, you have been weighed and found wanting




This could be the beginning of the unraveling of the Zionist enterprise.

They accuse these detainees of wanting to overthrow the Zionist Government. What in the world does that mean?

Meir Ettinger is right.* The Supreme Court "will repent for your actions and your Jewish soul will take over to help bring the redemption". They are so afraid of the Jewish religion. This is what the government is so afraid of, that the long-awaited redemption, the Geulah, will actually occur, as our Jewish Heritage predicts, and as HaShem, the G–D of the world promises.

"[...] because of our sins, instead of having a court based on the holy Torah, the word of G-d, we have been taken captive by false courts. These captors are the prosecution, the media, and the false courts of today that have waged war against the land of Israel, the Torah of Israel, and those who fear the G-d of Israel. Their goal is to foster the growth of a foreign culture in our midst to replace the way of the Torah and service to G-d in the land of Israel."

"In their accusations they used the phrase, “changing the regime.” [...]  The ‘group’ I am a part of, was founded during the exodus from Egypt and the receiving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. There the Jewish people were chosen to be a nation of priests and a holy people in the land of Israel.

So what is this ‘Kingdom of Israel’? For 2000 years in exile, Jews around the world said in their prayers “Let me witness the return to Zion” and concluded with the words, “blessed is He who restores His glory to Zion.” These Jews did not merely want to return to the land of Israel to build fields and buildings**. They wanted more. They wanted to restore G-d’s presence in the land by creating a state that would spread the name of G-d throughout the world."

"In Israel today, the Torah’s solution to security problems is racist, the Torah’s views on international relations are incitement, and anyone who supports the Torah’s opinion over the laws of the state is an anarchist. Those who struggle with love for the land of Israel are arrested and their homes are destroyed."

"In the State of Israel today we have leaders who do not understand the Torah and no one dares explain to them what a true Jewish state looks like, why the Jewish people to the land of Israel, and what right the Jewish people have to the land. Not only are we victims of this unfortunate situation, but you are too- you, the judge, and the prosecutor. All of us are captives of this reality."

"Your hysterical actions and discrimination against Jews in enforcing the law, your shocking neglect for the values of democracy when dealing with Jews who love the land of Israel, appears strange to many people."

"It is obvious that these actions will backfire and have the opposite result.You will not manage to silence the voice inside you, anymore than you could expel your Jewish soul from your body. In the end, even you will repent for your actions and your Jewish soul will take over to help bring the redemption."

––––––––––––––––––––––––––

* These are the words of Meir Ettinger said during his hearing on Sep. 10th, 2015. This hearing was the third and final hearing [...] before officially approving his administrative detention.

**The Return to Zion was usurped from the religious Jews (who were interested in returning to Eretz Israel) back in Europe after Herzel passed on, and there was a struggle for leadership. During this time different "political" factions wrestled for dominance. From this the non-religious socialists took control and created the Halutzim movement to create a society on the Land. Hence,  "The Zionist Dream" socialist political movement was created. (I heard this in a fascinating series of lectures given by supreme historian Rabbi Berl Wein. This is not verbatim, but a paraphrase of what I understood.)

**HOWEVER, regardless of the fear and panic, this doesn't equate to the end of the State of Israel, only that the non-Jewish elements be plucked out and life is to continue as a Jewish Nation according to the Torah of HaShem, and according to the leadership of Moshiach in the age of Geula.

Amazing Photos of Hashem's Creatures

Can Insects Be Cute?

Below are Snapdragon photos from dailymail.co.uk* 

Too cute for words. 

The intimidating-looking insects were photographed early in the morning sitting motionless on plants and flowers. The creatures sit on the plants in the mornings waiting for the dew on their wings to dry and the temperatures to rise, Roberto Aldrovandi, 46, said the early morning conditions allow him to photograph them before they flew away.


This appears to be a family photo, the kids are far left and far right, also differing colors.



If you look closely, you can see one with a 'hand' on his partner, after spending the night together. And notice they are different colors. Gotta laugh at this.


















And of all places, I found these lovely photos on Haaretz of Israeli animals:

Possibly a Baby Deer



Possibly a Wild Rabbit












*no link for dailymail as the site is not really appropriate,
but occasionally I find lovely photos of
animals and nature, which I find very interesting.
