The Rabbinical Congress for Peace (RCP) has lashed out against the ministers and MK’s of the Jewish Home Party for agreeing to the evacuation of Amona saying that you can’t bribe G-d with a Regualtion Bill.
Over 400 rabbis who are members of the RCP have called on the government to immediately stop talking of evacuation of any settlement because the mere verbal expressions of evacuation energizes the terrorists to increase their terrorist activity.
The Torah states that G-d does not take bribes, ‘you cannot chase Jews out of their homes in one area for whatever good intention you may have because our enemies do not differentiate between a withdrawal from ten kilometers or ten meters. To them the message is clear: Jews don’t feel that they are the rightful owners of the Land of Israel and are prepared to cave in under pressure,” said Rabbi Joseph Gerlitzky, Chairman of the RCP.
The rabbis reiterated the Halachic Ruling in the Jewish Code of Law (Orach Chaim Chapter 329) that any withdrawal from land currently controlled by Jews is a danger to life and will serve as a tailwind to increased terrorist activities. This is not a mystical or metaphysical concept detached from reality but unfortunately has been witnessed physically by the residents of Israel ever since Oslo.
In an interview with the Israeli media today, Rabbi Gerlitzky said that the claim that the world expects us to evacuate Amona is false and deceptive. “All nations of the world, especially the USA, who are confronted with Islamic terrorism expects Israel to stand strong and firm and not to be deterred by the so-called “enlightened political correct establishment.”
The rabbi asserted that “the government in Israel has been gripped with an imaginary fear that the world is pressuring it and this itself precipitates pressure. This is the fulfillment of the curse mentioned in the Torah ‘you will flee with no one pursuing you.’ Is there anyone in their right mind that thinks Israel ought to evacuate Jews from parts of their homeland and give it over to sworn enemies who seek their destruction? We ourselves have convinced the world that this is an item on the agenda,” said Rabbi Gerlitzky.”
