Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu does not plan to attend the historic reopening of the Hurva synagogue in Jerusalem's Old City on Monday. A senior diplomat told Arutz Sheva's Hebrew news service that the PM will absent himself in order to avoid conflict with the United States or the Palestinian Authority.
The prime minister will address crowds at the Hurva ceremony by video instead. The diplomat who spoke to Arutz Sheva would not divulge the exact content of Netanyahu's address, but hinted, “we're not sure that the nationalists are going to like what he intends to say.”An official statement from the Prime Minister's Office confirmed that Netanyahu would not attend the Old City ceremony, but said his absence would be due only to time constraints. “The Prime Minister has a very full schedule these days,” the statement said.
Full schedule? More like full of crap.
Netanyahu has been scrambling and making excuses for why it was announced that 1,600 Jewish homes are going to be built in the capital of the Jewish homeland while the vice president of the United States, who considers Jerusalem illegally occupied by the Jews, as does his president, and the government of the United States, was there to once again attempt to sweet talk Israel into committing suicide. Instead of standing up straight and telling the world that Jerusalem is our capital, it will not be divided, and we will build anywhere in it (as he has done when American diplomats are not there), he is acting like a little boy who just got busted for taking a dump on the antique Kafkazi rug.
The Hurva synagogue was the principle Ashkenazi synagogue in Jerusalem for ages until it was sacked, defiled, and destroyed by the Jordanians in 1948 when they invaded the city and cleansed it of its Jews (yes there were Jews living in Jerusalem before 1967, and even before Islam existed). The Prime Minister of Israel should be there to tell the world that we are in our city, the city in which Hashem told us to build the Beit HaMikdash, the city His prophets proclaimed we would rejoice in after our exile. Instead he will be on a video screen, hiding, to most likely talk about trust, and cooperation with the genocidal terrorists who want to kill us to the last child.
Bibi Netanyahu is not a free Jew. He's a shtetl Jew. He's a shtetl Jew who, if he sits at a seder table at all this year will still say, "Next year in Jerusalem," when he is already there. The city is ours. It always has been. There is an occupation. The city is occupied by non-Jews. It's time that Israel had a Prime Minister who speaks the truth, and refuses to hide and bow to goyim who would tell us where we can live, and whether our capital is part of our country or not; goyim who enable those who would see us dead, and the Land of Israel cleansed of Jews.
This year we are slaves. Next year may we all be free.
