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

We Won't Get Fooled Again?

In August of 2005 the Israeli government executed an evacuation of the Jewish communities in Gaza, collectively known as Gush Katif. The stated purpose of this evacuation was to enact a policy of disengagement that would supposedly disentangle Israel from Gaza, a largely lawless place where the rival factions Fatah and Hamas were kept from each other’s throats by the constant presence of the IDF. Many have postulated however that the evacuation had just as much, if not more, to do with Ariel Sharon’s wanting to deflect attention away from growing corruption investigations against him and members of his family, as well as a burgeoning casino/real estate deal between Sharon pals and the Palestinian Authority.

Meanwhile in Gush Katif, Jewish communities thrived. Organic farms were generating produce, and schools and synagogues were active. It was a reflection of what has happened everywhere Jews have put down roots in their ancestral lands. Everywhere considered blighted swamp and desert blooms in the hands of those who are meant to live in the land. And as one would expect, the Arabs of Gaza were living in increasingly decrepit conditions; not because of “Occupation” as people are led to believe, but because, like the Arabs of Judea and Samaria in the post-Oslo world, their so-called leaders were pocketing material aid and cash and lining their pockets, bribing officials, buying houses and fancy silk suits with it.

When the evacuation and destruction of Gush Katif was coming closer to reality a movement started in an attempt to block the action. Orange was the color of the revolution, and plans were set in motion to crusade to Gush Katif and stop the evacuation. But the crusade was foiled by traitors among the rabbinical leadership, and the Yesha Council. These leaders, who should be considered the lowest of the low in the annals of the Jewish people, used their power and influence to disrupt a legitimate attempt to stop the inaction of a policy that has, like Oslo before it, led directly to Israeli dead, maimed, and traumatized, as well as damage to property in the millions of dollars. The only good thing that resulted from the evacuation was that Hamas and Fatah entered into a civil war (terrorists killing each other is a reason for cake as far as I'm concerned), killing Arab civilians and ultimately leading to Hamas becoming the ruling faction in Gaza (not a good thing), thanks to stupid idiot Bush's ludicrous notion that he could bring democracy to Gaza by having "elections" in one of the most politically corrupt places on earth (a thought in Bush's brain probably couldn't generate enough wattage to power a nightlight, still having Marack in the White House makes me miss the little putz).

In summation, the evacuation of Gush Katif was not only a betrayal of HaShem's birthright to the Jewish people, it has been a disaster for the people of Gaza, Israel, and the Middle East at large, with Iran now having entrenched satellite entities in Syria, Lebanon and Azza.

The following are the first two parts of a documentary I was turned onto by Ben-Yehuda at Esser Agaroth. As a wise idiot from Texas once said, "Fool me once, shame on me...fool me twice....won't get fooled again."
