(/sites/default/files/uploads/2012/06/250px-Newspapers.gif)Reading a recent Ha’aretz article was stupefying – headlined: “The settler behind shadowy purchases of Palestinian land in the West Bank,” one may think that Ha’aretz had discovered a mass scandal worthy of a “shadowy” headline. In reality, what the newspaper “exposed” were the Jews who work to purchase homes for Jews to live in – because Arabs won’t sell to Jews. Sad that Ha’aretz proudly exposing patriots is a headline in the Jewish State – while anywhere else in the world not selling to someone because they are Jewish would be deemed racism.
Unfortunately, in the 21st century Jews can’t use their real names to purchase homes because Arabs kill other Arabs if they dare sell to the Jewish infidel. Reporting the story: Uri Blau (who was recently charged by Israel’s attorney general with unauthorized possession of stolen classified documents from the Israel Defense Forces), who proudly ran the first photo of a Jewish patriot who did the valiant work of ensuring Jews live in all areas of the holy State of Israel. Exposing a man who works privately to defeat racism would win awards in many countries – in Ha’aretz it’s deemed “shadowy” and “mysterious.” What’s glossed over is that every single activity they mention is completely 100% legal.
Assisting Ha’aretz and Blau shamefully in aiding the enemy is New Yorker Evelyn Hayes, who claims to be very passionate about the Land of Israel and Kever Rachel – but clearly is more concerned about Evelyn Hayes than anything else. From reading this article, one learns that Evelyn Hayes refused agreed upon nationalist mediators to collaborate with Blau and Ha’aretz – in an action which can only harm Jewish residents of these areas. Shame on Ha’aretz, Blau and Hayes.
The great Jewish religious leader Hillel, one of the most important figures in Jewish history, said: “If I am not for myself, who will be for me? And when I am for myself, what am ‘I’? And if not now, when?” Reading this article, one can only say words of thanks to brave men like Benny Elon, Tzahi Mamo, Chaim Silberstein, Matti Dan, Shlomo Zwickler, and others who work to ensure that Israel remains the Jewish nation and on a daily basis fulfill the words of Hillel. These people act and work tirelessly for the people of Israel. And they do it with tremendous self-sacrifice, facing perpetual negative publicity and threats to their safety.
Why is it that the media has this sick obsession with Jewish “settlers” – or people who simply work in their people’s best interest? I have yet to read features of this length exposing the Arab who killed his fellow Arab for being a collaborator – where is that article? Why doesn’t Ha’aretz publish the first photo of the proud Arab who made a better life for his family financially and sold a home to a Jew in the interest of mutual co-existence? Indeed, only 70 years after the Holocaust what could be more natural than Jews working to help the Jewish state?
A Jew can buy a home in Kiev or Paris, Chicago or Tokyo – what’s the issue with Jews buying homes anywhere they choose in the Holy Land? Does not the whole world speak of human rights, equality amongst people and recognize the rights of Jews as equals? The great Zionist leader Ze’ev Jabotinsky declared that settlement of the “land” is the only “law.” He declared: “There is no justice, no law, and no God in heaven, only a single law which decides and supercedes all – [Jewish] settlement [of the land].”
Shame on Ha’aretz, Uri Blau and Evelyn Hayes for working against those putting facts on the ground and putting them and their efforts in danger. The next time you see more Jews living in Israel we have people like Elon, Mamo, Silberstein, Dan and Zwickler to thank – and worldwide, Jews should stand up and say: “Thank you to all the brave Jewish patriots working to support the land and people of Eretz Israel.”
