פרי אחדות

February 19, 2009

For decades now, the mantra of the dati leumi community has been Achdut.  We are all one nation, say the lemmings.  Fighting amongst ourselves will only play into the hands of our enemies.  That is the Party Line.  Anyone who challenges it must be an evil heretic, a stooge of Amalek and an agent of Hamas.  For nigh-on twenty years, as agents of the Israeli State have been beating them with clubs and throwing them out of their homes, the foolish lemmings of the Holy Land have been chanting “We are one people!  We are one people!  We are one people!”

So eager are the Jewish lemmings of the Holy Land to believe this fantasy that they will forget history, deny reality and all but assault anyone who challenges their delusions.  It is no longer a rational thing, Achdut.  After Gush Katif, after Amona, after the pogrom at the Peace House, it cannot be rational.  No rational person could believe that the monsters who send jackbooted thugs to beat Jewish women and children, demolish Jewish homes and destroy Jewish sovereignty over Eretz Yisrael are creatures we should seek to embrace.  No rational person could believe that a nation which consistently selects antisemitic murderers to lead it is a nation to which any Jew should pledge allegiance.  This mass hysteria is a mental disease.  Call it “Achdut psychosis”, call it “Achdut mania”, call it anything you want, but do not call it sanity.

Today, the madness manifests itself in the public trumpeting over the last Israeli election.  According to the purveyors of Achdut madness, the “right wing block” that is “loyal to the Land of Israel” has won 65 votes.  What insanity is this?  Let’s review:

The leader of this “loyal” block is none other than Benjamin Netanyahu (y”sh).  This is the man who surrendered Hebron to the Moslems.  As Prime Minister of the State of Israel, he knew or should have known that the surrender of Hebron to the enemy would lead only to an increase in terrorism.  He knew or should have known that the Jews of Hebron would be attacked and killed by the very people to whom he was surrendering Hebron.  In other words, he WILLINGLY, KNOWINGLY, positioned Moslem jihadis in Hebron.  As direct result of this action, R.Shlomo Ra’anan (z”l) and Danny Vargas(z”l), to pick just two, were murdered by jihadis.  Netanyahu (y”sh) is as responsible for these deaths as if he personally wielded the knife that stabbed Rav Ra’anan.  He is as responsible for them as if he personally fired the bullet that killed Danny Vargas.  As Prime Minister of the Israeli State, Netanyahu (y”sh) was responsible for everything that State did or failed to do.  As commander in chief of Israel’s armed forces, he was responsible for everything that those armed forces did or failed to do.  He KNEW that these kinds of attacks would happen.  And, with this knowledge in hand, he DELIBERATELY FACILITATED them.   And now the lunatics who claim to “lead” the Jews of the Holy land claim that this murderer whose hands drip with Jewish blood is “loyal to the Land of Israel”!  They claim that he is a friend of the Jews!  Every day, three times a day, we mention people like Benjamin Netanyahu(y”sh) in our prayers:  “…veLaMalshinim al tihyeh tikvah…”  How many more murders must this monster commit before the lemmings of the Holy Land wake up?

And look who else is being claimed as part of this “faithful” block of allegedly Jewish parties!  $ha$ and U$TJ, who sold Gush Katif down the river and remained in the government after Amona!  Lieberman, who openly proclaims his desire to surrender half the country to Hamas!  THIS is the block of faithful with whom we should seek unity?  This is the block that will prevent further pogroms and attacks on Jews?

Yet when the leaders of this very “faithful” block cooperate with the murderers Barak (y”sh) and Livni (y”sh) to launch another pogrom, the Jewish Lemmings of the Holy Land will have the gall to act surprised!

Jews of the Holy Land, isn’t it time you woke up from your slumber?  What has this “unity” with Israel brought you, besides pogroms and evictions and jihadi terrorism?  How much more Achdut do you need before you finally say “Enough!”?

Ultimately, all these are just words.  A picture is worth a thousand words.  Here are some pictures.  If they don’t make your blood boil, you are not a Jew.  If they do not make you want to grab a weapon and walk down the street this instant and shoot every green-suited and blue-suited Israeli kapo you see, you are not a Jewish man.  These are the fruits of Achdut.  This is what happens when one side beats people with clubs, while the other side responds with hugs and orange ribbons.  This is what happens when one side plots extermination, while the other side screams for unity with the very people who attack it.  This is what happens when there is no deterrence.

Dear reader, next time your friend, or your neighbor, or your co-worker or your chevrusa or a member of your family tells you that we are one people with the Israelis, that we must have achdut, show them these pictures and ask them how long they intend to let this go on.

And after you have shown them these photographs, ask your Jewish brothers:  Would a single one of the monstrous kapos in these pictures dare to lay a hand on a Jewish woman if he knew that a Jewish vengeance squad would come into his house in the middle of the night, break his legs, douse him with gasoline and set him on fire in his own bed?  Would he dare assault a Jewish child if he knew that on the orders of a Beit Din Ivri, Shomrei Ivri would kidnap him from his favorite nightclub and behead him on live video?  Would the monsters who sent these kapos to beat, torture, rape and demolish dare to give such orders if they knew that Jewish avengers would set off a dozen bombs in the posh treif restaurants and expensive nightclubs of North Tel Aviv in response to every indignity?  Would they give such orders if they KNEW with 100% certainty that Jewish warriors would target THEM personally, every single one from the Israeli Prime Minister down to the last pissant lieutenant?  Would any of these atrocities happen if the Jews had what Hamas has – deterrence?!

Like a Fire on Shabbat

February 15, 2009

What does one do if a couch catches fire on Shabbat? This is not a trivial problem. To extinguish a flame on Shabbat is to perform a melachah. The holiness of Shabbat prohibits the performance of melachot.

Should we therefore let the couch burn? Some would say yes. And if the fire spreads, as fire always does, do we stand by and let it spread because of the holiness of Shabbat? Some would say yes. And when the draperies and the other furniture catch fire and the living room is engulfed in flames, should we still watch the fire spread and do nothing? Indeed there are those who would say that we should wake the children, bundle as many clothes around ourselves as possible, take food enough for a few meals if we can carry such into a permissible domain, and evacuate the house. Some would say that we should stand outside and watch the house burn to the ground because of the holiness of Shabbat. If the goyim call the fire department, these people would say, we should let them. But, they would say, because of the holiness of Shabbat, we should not fight the fire ourselves. The holiness of Shabbat, these people say, is so great that damage to mere property, on any scale, is insufficient to justify the performance of even the smallest melachah.

A naïve reading of the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch would seem to support this line of reasoning. In the laws of fire on Shabbos, we see a discussion of what may or may not be saved from a fire that is out of control. We see a statement regarding the permissibility to put out the fire if there is a danger to life. We even see a statement that Jews who live intermingled with goyim may put out the fire, presumably lest their inaction be cause for a pogrom. But we see no discussion on how to prevent the spread of the fire, contain it and extinguish it.

Many modern “poskim” rule that, indeed, we should let a whole house burn to the ground and be rendered destitute lest the holiness of Shabbat be violated. This only proves what Vienna Mike has asserted many times – the rulings of a “posek” who does not earn parnassah to support his family via a full-time real world job are the celestial castles of an ivory tower academic with no connection to reality. Such “halacha” has all the binding force of the prattling of a parrot. Men who rule this way are men whose needs have been provided for by others throughout their entire lives. Because they have never done an honest day’s work, they have no conception of the value of property. Because they expect that all things will be provided to them regardless of circumstance, they have neither conception nor fear of poverty. And because it is not their own house that is on fire, they can rule from the comfort of their armchairs that “sacrifices” must be made in “honor” of Shabbat, no matter the circumstances. Thus the shower of free lunches provided to these worthless loafers causes them to distort Torah and harm the Jewish People as a whole.

There is a simple logical technique called reductio ad absurdum. In one of its forms, it consists of taking an argument to extremes and determining whether it leads to absurd results. If it does, then the argument as originally constructed is flawed. Either the argument is entirely false or boundary conditions exist outside of which it is invalid. In the case of a fire on Shabbat, for example, we can use reductio ad absurdum to prove the fallacy of ivory tower “poskim”.

Let us suppose that we watch a couch burn and the fire spreads. So we evacuate the house. We watch the house burn and the fire spreads to the grass and brush outside. So we walk away from the fire. But fires are funny things. As long as there is fuel, they keep spreading. What is more, because they dry out things around them, fires have the nasty tendency to spread faster as they grow bigger.

Suppose we still do nothing about our fire. After all, if we did not try to extinguish it to save a house, why should we try to extinguish it to save some brush? Soon the whole neighborhood is engulfed in a firestorm. And if we still do nothing, it will be the whole city! In fact, if we do nothing, eventually it will become impossible to outrun the spreading fire. Hundreds of people died in Australia this past week because they forgot that a spreading fire in dry brush can and often will outrun an automobile.

So a city burns down because of the holiness of Shabbat and hundreds of people die trying to outrun a firestorm? But it gets worse! Cities are more than valuable property. Cities contain resources. Food, water purification systems, shelter from the elements, all these are much of what makes a city. If disaster relief does not arrive promptly, not only could people perish in the initial firestorm, but starvation, disease and exposure would kill many more the initial number of victims. Clearly the situation is absurd. Halacha cannot demand that we permit a fire to spread out of control because of the holiness of Shabbat. And indeed it does not.

Abandoning the prattle of modern pseudo-poskim, we can turn back to the Sages of the Talmud, all of whom had to work for a living. What do we find? Well, unsurprisingly, we find that the Sages make a rather large distinction between putting out a candle on Shabbat and preventing the spread of a house fire. Turning to tractate Shabbat 16:5, we discover that in the event where great loss is threatened if one does not act, one can certainly prevent the fire from spreading and can even extinguish it by indirect means. What is important is the INTENT of the person and SCALE of the circumstances. As long as we are dealing with a house fire and not with a candle, we can make fire breaks of vessels full of water. If the vessels burst and release the water and the fire is thereby extinguished, we are not liable. We can pour water all around the fire, soaking everything so it will not burn. If the water happens to run into the fire and extinguish it, we are not liable. If a piece of furniture catches fire, we can spread a wet hide or wet towel over it. If the fire is thereby extinguished, we are not liable, for we were merely trying to prevent its spread.

This is what is known as sanity. Halacha is not a suicide pact, nor is sacrifice demanded for no reason. Accepting death rather than worshipping idols is heroism. Allowing a fire to burn out of control because of Shabbat is insanity. The Torah demands the former, but it does not demand the latter. The Torah is not insane.

How is this applicable to the case of Medinat Yehudah? Why is the author wasting your time with this? After all, this is The Virtual Medinat Yehudah, not The Virtual Yeshivah! You did not come to this site to read abstruse halachic treatises. Fear not, dear reader. This issue is clearly applicable to the problem before us.

As any normal Jew will point out, the life of a Jew is holy. We are commanded to love a fellow Jew. We are commanded to protect him. Certainly we are not permitted to curse him, spit on him, throw rocks and garbage at him, beat him, even kill him. Why, that is hillul Hashem! Jews do not fight Jews.

Some persons point out that there are Jews in the Israeli army and in the Israeli police. We have already established that a person who beats Jews with clubs, sexually assaults Jewish children, throws Jewish toddlers out of windows, demolishes homes, desecrates schuls and hands pieces of Hashem’s Holy Land to Moslems cannot be a Jew. Thus we know that the vast majority of those who serve in the IDF are goyim and erev rav, regardless of the length of their peyot or their Shabbat observance. But what of the rest? What of those who would refuse orders to participate in a pogrom, yet wear the uniform of the pogromschiks? What of those unfortunates who, addled by a lethal combination of naiveté, mamlachti herecy and achdut propaganda, continue to serve in the very army that throws their Jewish brothers and sisters out of their homes? If a Jewish Resistance fights the IDF and these individuals are harmed in the process, is this not forbidden?

Some persons point out that there are a few Jews scattered among the Hebrew-speaking goyim of North Tel Aviv. We have already established that those who send thugs to beat Jewish children with clubs, sexually assault Jewish girls and demolish Jewish homes, those who support pogroms against Jewish communities and the handing of pieces of Hashem’s Holy Land to Moslem murderers cannot be Jews. But what of those who do not? What of those who oppose these policies but, addled by a lethal combination of naiveté and propaganda, continue to vote for murderers like Netanyahu(y”sh) and the monsters to his political left? If a Jewish Resistance attacks the Israeli elite in its dens of iniquity, surely Jewish bystanders will be harmed. Is this permitted?

Some would say that it is not. Some would say that we should permit the fire of pogrom and expulsion to spread because of the holiness of Jewish life. Some claim that we should stand limply by and wave orange ribbons as every Jewish community in Yosh is crushed under the threads of Israeli bulldozers. Are they right?

Dear reader, it is like a fire on Shabbat! If we stand by and do nothing, the fire will spread. It will engulf the entire Jewish population of the Holy Land. Expulsion will lead to expulsion, pogrom to pogrom, rape to rape, assault to assault, murder to murder until we arrive in due course at the Second Holocaust itself! Should we permit a Second Holocaust because of the holiness of Jewish life?  That is absurd!  Is Hashem’s Holy Torah an insane suicide pact? Surely not!

My brothers and sisters let us not worry about the lives of a few lunatics who choose to associate with Israeli murderers. Let us worry instead about the lives of our families and children. This fire cannot be permitted to spread any further. It must be contained, driven back, turned on itself and ultimately extinguished. If the Israeli enemy makes a checkpoint full of hesder Yeshiva freierim in an effort to stop Jews from defending a yishuv under attack, there is no halachic difficulty with beating these hesder freierim aside, cursing at them, spitting at them or even killing them. Perhaps after a few examples are made, the hesder freierim will reconsider their choice of uniforms. And if not, we are not liable.

If a Jewish resistance fighter plants a bomb in a posh treif restaurant in North Tel Aviv, let him not worry about any potential Jew who might be walking outside when the bomb goes off. This Jew would not be a victim of the resistance, but a victim of the Israelis who have sparked resistance by their murderous antisemitic policies. Perhaps his death would cause other Jews to stop frequenting Israeli neighborhoods. And if not, we are not liable.

If it is necessary to send a Jewish warrior on a suicide mission to detonate high explosives at a bus stop full of Israeli soldiers, let us not worry about the sanctity of his life. His blood is on the hands of the Israelis who drive the Jews to such desperation by their continued oppression of the Jewish People and their continued occupation of Medinat Yehudah.

The Torah is not a suicide pact. There is a fire burning out of control in the Holy Land. In the name of “peace”, Israeli murderers are plotting to hand the Jewish heartland to the Moslem enemy. My brothers and sisters, this fire must not be allowed to spread any further. It must not be our intent to kill fellow Jews. But if Jews die as a consequence of our efforts to liberate our country and prevent a Second Holocaust, so be it. The alternative is absurd.

A Word of Caution

February 10, 2009

B”H
Dear readers, this blog is a serious place for serious people. The blog advocates armed struggle for the liberation of Medinat Yehudah. Nothing more and nothing less. The author means every word he writes. Only tactical considerations and a physical inability to take direct action at this time limit the author of these lines to the educational role. By creating and maintaining this blog, the author takes a very serious and real risk. This is a risk the author has taken willingly in order to promote the cause of liberating our country. The author has already suffered and will continue to suffer the consequences of this choice.

Those of you who live in the United States and, to a lesser extent, in Europe, are fairly safe when you participate here via talkback. The enemy’s resources are limited. You are unimportant until and unless you are identified as part of an organization dedicated to liberating the Jewish People in occupied Medinat Yehudah from Israeli oppression. Nonetheless, even your actions will probably be watched via low-cost electronic means. Those of you who live under Israeli rule in occupied Medinat Yehudah are NOT safe. The enemy possesses a wealth of resources on the ground in Eretz Yisrael. Everyone living in Yosh is living under a Shabak microscope. If you fail to conceal your identity while utilizing this blog, there WILL be consequences. At the very least, your participation here will raise your profile as a potential threat and the surveillance against you will be intensified, making it virtually impossible for you to take any action against the Israeli occupier without being thwarted and neutralized. At worst, you will be killed or your family will be harmed.

Those who wish to put on Beged Ivri, hoist the banner of Judah over their homes and openly wage the War of Symbols are encouraged to do so. Those who wish to spread the message and ideas of Medinat Yehudah on the internet or elsewhere are also encouraged to do so. You may reproduce any material on this site in any form in any language via any medium of your choice, as long as you do not alter its message. Attribution to the original author is unnecessary. Vienna Mike applauds you for having the courage to stand up and fight for our trampled country. However, please remember that whether you are identified as an active supporter of armed struggle or merely as a person sympathetic to the cause of Medinat Yehudah can mean the difference between life and death for you and your loved ones.

Some of you have been incautious regarding your identity. This is foolish. The author of this blog will delete any talkback that is easily traceable to a physical person in Eretz Yisrael. This includes non-fictitious email addresses and names, links to personal webpages, links to blogs not ending in .onion and any obvious identifying information contained in the body of the talkback. The author STRONGLY encourages the use of highly anonymous proxies, such as Privoxy, while posting to this blog. The Israelis will look for you. Do not make it easy for them to find you.

May Hashem guard you and keep you wherever you may walk and may you merit to see the rebirth of Judah speedily in our time.
