Stop The Disengagement

Highly respected Rabbis are calling upon Jews from around the globe to protest the disengagement. These are men who lead communties. They are not a small band of extremist; but heads of long lasting, centuries old communities. Included among their number are the former Sephardic Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, the Bostoner Rav and Rabbi Me'ir Mazuz head of the Kisei Rachamim Yeshiva of B'nei Brak.

The Rabbis state at one point

"Just as Jews cannot accept payment for stopping to put on tefillin or for stopping to keep the Sabbath, Jews cannot accept payment for giving up homes in Eretz Yisrael," the rabbis say.

I fdont know how i feel about disengagement. I do trust Arik, but part of me feels its a bad idea.

Interstingly, I met some guys from Zaka last week, they are in South Africa to meet up with some of the survivors from the Tsunami that they helped.

I asked the one guy what Zaka think of disengagemengt. I'm sure the opinion is his and not the Zaka opinion as a whole, but he said that he supports it.

I am a Christian and believe in the Abrahamic Covenant. I also believe Joel 1 and 2 where G-d states clearly "In the day and hour I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I'll gather all nations into the valley of Jehosophat and there I will enter into judgement with them. Judgement because you've scattered My people and divided My Land." I am against a Palestinian State, against giving away land, against disengagement, against the road map. I realize that there are churches who have boycotted Israel, such as, the Presbytarian Church USA and the World Council of Churches. I am embarrassed and sickened by this. But remember that in the church there are wolves in sheeps clothing who are not Christians at all. True Christians have a clear understanding of the situation. And would never promote boycotting Israel or promote the road map. Sincerely, Cynthia Rymer Ashland, KY
