The Torah Parsha this week is Shoftim. "You shall set up judges and law enforcement officials for yourself in all your cities that the Lord, your God, is giving you, for your tribes, and they shall judge the people [with] righteous judgment." (Deut 16:18) "and they shall judge the people [with] righteous judgment": Appoint judges who are expert and righteous so that they will judge justly. — [from Sifrei]
There are three basic foundations of our Jewish Faith. And they are as follows, the Torah, the Jewish People and the Land of Israel. It is against Jewish Law to change the Torah. It is also against Jewish Law to sacrifice any member of the Jewish People for personal desires. And it is also against Jewish Law for a Jew to deny the Jewish People's claim to all the Land of Israel. Therefore, in this context, it is against Jewish Law to accept Jewish Leadership that negates these basic foundations of Jewish Faith.
The Jewish Defence League of Canada is determined to educate the Jewish People and to demand that our leadership is accountable. There are groups in Canada that claim to be Jewish, however, they support groups that call for the destruction of Israel. And we have exposed them and will continue this policy to Confront and Expose. In the USA, the problem is more acute. There is a new organization called J Street. President Obama has recently raised their profile. It is my contention that the purpose of J Street is to push the State Department's anti Israel position upon the Jewish People. Please review the following information about J Street:
The people of Gaza are being squeezed to death. This week's blackouts have finally reached the attention of the world -- and the international community could help end the blockade. Our obligation is clear. This isn't about Israel vs Palestine or Hamas vs Fatah: this is about 1.5 million human beings locked up in the biggest prison on earth.... The humanitarian crisis of sealed-off Gaza is only getting worse, and a rain of missiles is falling.
The Jewish Fast for Gaza is an ad hoc group of rabbis, Jews, and people of conscience who have committed to undertake a monthly daytime fast in support of the following goals:
1. To call for a lifting of the blockade that prevents the entry of civilian goods and services into Gaza;
2. To provide humanitarian and developmental aid to the people of Gaza;
3. To call upon Israel, the US, and the international community to engage in negotiations without pre-conditions with all relevant Palestinian parties - including Hamas - in order to end the blockade;
4. To encourage the American government to vigorously engage both Israelis and Palestinians toward a just and peaceful settlement of the conflict.
From this we learn that justice, truth and peace are interdependent and irrevocably intertwined. Thus we cannot separate our call for justice in Gaza from the painful truth of this conflict and the ongoing tragedy of war in this tortured region. We condemn Hamas' deliberate targeting of Israeli civilians. Out of the same ethical commitments we also condemn the use of much greater violence by the Israeli government, causing many more deaths of Palestinian civilians. Since the end of Israel's recent military campaign, the severe humanitarian crisis in Gaza has grown all the more dire.
Since Hamas' electoral victory in January 2006, Israel has subjected the Gaza Strip to an increasingly intolerable blockade that restricts Gaza's ability to import food, fuel and other essential materials, and to export finished products. As a result, the Gazan economy has completely collapsed. Most of Gaza's industrial plants have been forced to close, further contributing to already high levels of unemployment and poverty and rising levels of childhood malnutrition. (www.fastforgaza.net)
EXPOSE AND CONFRONT J STREET
President Obama is more concerned with a few homes built for Jews in Israel, than Radical Iran building a Nuclear Bomb pointed at Israel !!
The Jewish Defence League of Canada and Shalom International of Miami Beach are calling upon all supporters of Israel to join with us, as we will Confront and Expose J Street at their 1st National Conference in Washington DC. In Late October, J Street will have a major conference in Washington DC. Many of their supporters fund groups that call for a boycott of Israel and refer to Israel as an "Apartheid State". In an effort to apply pressure on Israel, President Obama has given support to J Street and wants J Street to represent the Jewish People. It should be understood that much of J Street's monetary support comes from Arabs and Muslims. J Street's Moslem, Arab Donors are Revealed
