How Tyranny Developed in Israel

The present tyranny in Israel did not begin with Ariel Sharon; he only made it conspicuous by giving his police black shirts and forcibly expelling Jews from Gush Katif. But how did this tyranny begin?

A Message from David Ben-Gurion

Filed under: Israel’s SovereigntyDisengagement — eidelberg @ 8:53 pm Edit This

A Message from David Ben-Gurion to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and his judicial collaborator Chief Justice Aharon Barak,

“No Jew is at liberty to surrender the right of the Jewish Nation and the Land of Israel to exist. No Jewish body is sanctioned to do so. No Jew alive today has the authority to yield any piece of land whatsoever. This right is preserved by the Jewish People throughout the generations and cannot be forfeited under any circumstance. Even if at some given time there will be those who declare that they are relinquishing this right, they have neither the power nor the jurisdiction to negate it for future generations to come. The Jewish Nation is neither obligated by nor responsible for any waiver such as this. Our right to this land, in its entirety, is steadfast, inalienable and eternal. And until the coming of the Great Redemption, we shall never yield this historic right.”

Fellow Citizens and Friends of Israel!

To Those Responsible for the Expulsion

Filed under: Oslo/Peace ProcessDisengagement — eidelberg @ 9:35 pm Edit This

To those responsible for the expulsion of Jews from Gush Katif and Northern Samaria,
—especially to Israel’s Cabinet and to the General Staff of the IDF—
look in your mirrors and ponder the words of Albert Camus:
“To serve falsehood and despotism is the patriotism of the coward.”
