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

The Renewing of the Arab Terror War

This past summer in Beit Lechem, Fatah voted to renew its violent struggle to destroy the Jewish state. With the events that have transpired in Jerusalem over the past two weeks it is clear that the Arabs are ready. The powder is deployed and fused. It only awaits the spark.

Continuing attempts have been made in the form of the calls on Muslims to defend Al Aqsa from Jewish worshipers. Israel found the wheelbarrows filled with rocks. This means only one thing. The Arabs are ready to launch the next war. The question is, is Israel prepared to win it this time?

The Arabs know they will be defeated, but they are determined to engage in this war because the destroying of Israel demands it. They are also counting on Marack and the EU to intervene. They are also counting on Israel to stop military operations before they actually win.

Contrary to popular belief, Israel has never won a war. Every conflict in which it has engaged has ended in a ceasefire, not victory, even when victory was in Israel's grasp. In order for Israel to survive and have a lasting peace within its borders, including ALL of Eretz Yisrael, Fatah and Hamas must be broken, destroyed wholly and utterly. The Arab leadership in Israel that demands the Nakba be taught in Israel's schools must also be broken.

As Caroline Glick correctly points out in her latest column, the latest round of war is coming, and Israeli Arabs will no doubt be involved in the inciting and execution of violence against Jews. Israel has coddled them for too long, these people that see the founding of modern Israel as a catastrophe. The time for the paradigm shift has come. There is no room west of the Jordan for a binational state or two states. The League of Nations designated our homeland as the Jewish state and it is time that this vision be realized.

Does the current government have the resolve to see this war to its end? Does it have the strength of will to finally eradicate the terrorist presence from within all the land of Israel, and at last end the Arab strategy of destroying Israel with the creation of an Arab state in the heart of its land?

This past week Bibi Netanyahu witnessed the entering of his grandson into the Covenant between Avraham and Hashem. The physical embodiment of this covenant is the circumcision, and the land of Israel. What did Bibi see in his mind's eye? What did he feel in his heart at this momentous occasion? We will know when this war is engaged. Will he fight to win it? Or will he fight to the ceasefire and let the infected wound continue to fester?

On the eve of this war we conclude the reading of the Torah and begin it again; a cycle that has remained unbroken for thousands of years, the same as our presence in the land of Israel. For four thousand years it has been our home. For four thousand years it has been the living heart of our bond with G-d.

It will not only be the IDF that engages in this war against our enemies. Every man, woman, and child of Am Yisrael will be engaged. On whose side will you fight? Will you join the Suicide Now Jews who wish for nothing more than to see Israel capitulate to her enemies in the false hope that at last the world will stop trying to kill us? Or will you stand on the side of Israel, on the side of Hashem, who demands we face our enemies and drive them from the land? Will you face the propagandists in the papers, on the streets, on the internet, and on college campuses? Will you march against Code Pink, Cindy Sheehan, and the rest of the Leftists? Will you combat their lies, will you march to answer their rallies and speeches? Will you make your presence felt, or will you hide in your flimsy succahs until the howling of our enemies brings them down?

For two thousand years, until the renewal of our government in Israel, we hid from our enemies. We ran and cowered in our synagogues and died together when our enemies burned us alive within them. We cannot hide now. The world is gathering to stand against us again. We cannot hide now.

The time to choose is now. The time to strengthen your resolve is now. You are not alone.

Shtuey, I have a question.obviously, I care about the preservation and prospering of Israel, or I wouldn't be reading this blog. But I have a business to run, and at the moment I'm responsible for my wife's sister's kids. I have no time to breathe. What is the one thing that someone in the life trap can do to help?

gw, there are a lot of easy things you can do. If you have money in your budget to spare support Israel by buying Israeli products, either in your local store, or online (the shop in israel dot com link has a lot of different businesses to choose from). Keep up with the events here and at JPOST, Ynet, and Israel National News. Staying informed is important. Don't be afraid of taking on someone who comes out against Israel. Truth can't be disputed. Most people have no clue what's going on beyond the propaganda.

Most importantly, pray for the safety and survival of Israel; that she, her people and her soldiers are shielded from harm, and for the leadership to be inspired to do what needs to be done to keep Israel safe from her enemies.
