Am Hanetsach.

Sharon is still as stubborn as one could wish to be. We never imagined we would have world’s most inflexible and stubborn donkey sitting in our Knesset, playing Mr. Dictator. A filthy dictator, that is what he is. Whoever doesn’t agree with him gets demoted. Whoever goes with him receives a nice reward – free upgrade; becomes a minister. The police, army and media all participate with his big, corrupt and filthy politics.

Monday was the beginning, the first, of a massive 3 day march to Gush Katif. The rally started with fervent prayer and lively dance at the gravesite of the Baba Sali in Netivot. From there they continued their hike, broke through the human wall created by the police and arrived at Kfar Meimon. They’ll attempt to get as close to Gush Katif as possible, on the third day. The streets are full of posters, and the roads are all orange. Complete families; men, women and their children are all ready to join the hike. Equipped with large backpacks, sleeping bags and dressed in their orange uniform, eagerly waiting to get on the bus and join the rest.

Our lovely dictator is scared of does rightist-hooligans-religious-settlers-fanatic-extremists or however he likes calling us. An orange carpet of 100 000 marchers would smash the whole Kisufim junction apart, just as it did after Netivot, and just walk into the Gush without a drop of sweat. It would bring his whole disengagement plan drastically down, and mess it really up.

Monday, the police – afraid and scared of our success – stopped 500 busses on their way to Netivot. Police stopped busses, arrested bus drivers and emptied the entire bus. They confiscated all the driver’s licenses, leaving him and his bus helplessly stuck on the side of the road. What a mature and democratic way – just stop all the busses with no reason or excuse and try to prevent them from reaching the Baba Sali’s grave.

Not having any means of transportation, we all gathered at Jerusalem’s main entrance. Police have been expecting us. No one was allowed to cross the road. Hundreds of police and soldiers where there. Horses, motorbikes and water cannons, all waiting so eagerly for us. Police brutally arresting kids, pulling and pushing. Cruelly slamming everyone to the ground, and then dragging kids off the floor. I looked to the side and spotted two young girls. Both where just standing on the side, a pocketsize book in their hands. They where doing the only thing that could really change anything. They where saying tehilim.

The place is Germany, the year is 1940. Sorry, my mistake. I meant Israel, 2005. Tens of thousands of protesters, Jews, all locked up in Kfar Meimon, a little Moshav not far from Gush. Welcome to the ghetto. Fifteen thousand of Sharon’s puppets have laid siege on our fellow Jews. No one comes in, no one goes out. No food, no drink. Nothing. That’s our lovely government. That’s our lovely dictator, Arik Sharon.

I was walking home, all tired, upset and fed up. I couldn’t take it any more. I couldn’t live with it any longer. The politics, brutality and corruptness. It made me sick. I didn’t like the country anymore; ashamed with my government, ashamed with my police.

I came home, checked the news and watched the rallies. They showed the protests, the prayer and the dancing. No one was crashed, nobody looked upset. All our brothers where dancing lively together! Am hanetsach lo mefached - singing and dancing, all smiling and happy. Sparkling love, friendship and hope.

I smiled and thanked God for my lesson. I love Him, His People and His Land.

  • If (I know it is a huge if) in 10 years the gaza border is quiet, no IDF soldiers are getting killed in "trempiada" bombings, and there finally is peace, will this be worth it? Or is it Admat Kodesh and no matter who dies it is worth the fight?

  • CosmicX, we always win.

    Joe, indeed ynet and all the rest of the tishkoret are unreliable. Check out A7, www.israelnn.com. Or call the Kav Hamaavak. It's 24/7 reporting of what's really happening. I lost the number, I'll try and get it soon.

  • Dear D n Ch.

    You're asking a very valid question. Please let me explain.

    The main reason why we all are apposed the transfer isn't because of admas kodesh, kedushas haaretz and all the rest.

    As you say, we would do anything to save lives. The whole torah is mevatel - if it's to save someones life. No matter if it's holy land or not.

    The thing is; disengagement will not bring peace. On the contrary - it will bring more terror. Much more terror.

    Leaving gaza isn't going to make Israel any safer. Not only that it wont change anything, it'll even be worse. Much worse.

    Leaving gaza - is pekuach nefesh!

  • Oh, Joe. Try this - some chabad flavoured news. http://www.chabad.info

  • I don't have a problem with Gaza because I question the Admat kodesh. However when it comes to Shomron I view it as milchemet mitzvah and in war pikuach nefesh is not docheh. (rambam hilchos melachim) I personally believe that giving away the land proves to the enemy that if they bomb us enough we will give away the store.Thats why israel never negotiated with terrorists. It encourages more terror

  • "I personally believe that giving away the land proves to the enemy that if they bomb us enough we will give away the store."

    One word. Exactly.

  • Yingele,

    I think you guys need the Altalena treatment. A few rounds of ammunition and you will be dispersed.

    And then we are the ones labeled "radical right extremists"...

    Avrum why don't you change your bloody name to Abdulah... You're a disgrace for Judaism, Jews, our God and our Country.

    Oh, and Nazi - please get off my blog.
