It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Benny Kashriel Prepares To Throw Down E-1 Corner Stone

This coming Monday Ma'aleh Adumim mayor, Benny Kashriel, plans to stage a protest on the hill outside Jerusalem known as the E-1. Building housing there has been on the table for years, but has as yet failed to be engaged due to due the kowtowing of the "peace process." Of course, multi-mouthed Bibi Netanyahu promised there would be building, but his government has failed to issue a single permit for new construction.

In the face of this unavoidable fact, Kashriel, who is also a Likud Party member, plans to lay a cornerstone on the hilltop as a symbolic gesture to initiate the fight for E-1 construction that, in his words, "speaks from the heart of the people." It's the first time he's organized a public protest against Bibi's policies.

As of now, work on 450 apartments is under way in Ma'aleh Adumim. Once they are completed the E-1 is he only place left in the town where construction could be done.

Knesset Speaker Reuvi Rivlin, and Interior Minister Eli Yishai both support E-1 construction. Kashriel sees the protest as being a public statement to strengthen Bibi so that he can stand up to international pressure for the building freeze.

All of this pressure could be diffused if Bibi did one simple thing: explain to world leaders that Fatah's convention has made it clear that there is not partner for peace, that Fatah has chosen Jewish genocide and therefore Israel will not accept a Palestinian state, and that all lands west of the Jordan are under the jurisdiction of the Jewish state. Any unilateral, or international attempts to do impose such a state will be met with an Israeli military response.

The majority has already spoken. Fatah has already spoken. And yet this pointless charade continues. The Envoy Convoy met again, and everything's just peachy.
