A Higher Morality?
July 15, 2008
Aside from the pain of seeing two coffins rather than live soldiers, there should also be a reassessment of the deal made to free our soldiers. It is one thing for us to return terrorist bodies for the bodies of our soldiers, but it is outrageous to consider trading live murderers for dead soldiers. It must be assumed that those who made this morbid deal had hoped that our soldiers were still alive. Now that we know otherwise it is our obligation to limit the exchange only to dead arabs.
Had we any sense of decency the very least we would do is demand the return of Gilad Shalit alive before turning murderers loose. We would do even better to suggest that they will get their murderer in the same condition as we get Shalit. Otherwise we are encouraging the abductors to murder Shalit and all Jewish captives. Why should they keep them alive if they can get what they want even if they are dead? We have a moral obligation to the lives of our captives and that of future captives. If there is to be any hope to get them back alive it is only by refusing to exchange live murderers for dead soldiers.
It amazes me to listen to our leaders talk about morality as they agree to turn murderers loose. They claim that we have an obligation to return our soldiers home at any price. But they are liars. We have the ability to get all of our soldiers back if we had the stomach to do so. We have far more Arab captives in our jails then they have Jewish captives. We should announce that ten of these murderers will be executed every day until our captives are returned unharmed. And if any harm comes to our soldiers, we will execute all of our prisoners found guilty of terrorist acts. After the first ten are shot it is likely that our captives will be returned. This is true morality, but our leaders wouldn’t recognize it if they tripped over it.
Treating Arab murderers with kid gloves in our prisons while Jewish captives are tortured and murdered only encourages terror. Rather than acting on an alleged “higher morality”, in fact we are being extremely immoral. Our sages have taught us that, “to be merciful unto the cruel will eventually lead to being cruel unto the merciful.” This is true Jewish morality. Let us stop acting with false morality and begin to implement genuine Jewish morality. “When someone comes to murder you, rise up first and kill him”. The concept of turning the other cheek is not to be found in the Jewish Bible.
Project Shofar is dedicated to spreading these truths wherever it is possible to do so. It is sounding the alarm, to Jew and Gentile alike,to open our eyes to the G-dly process that is presently underway, and work to support it. We dare not stand idly on the sidelines.
Peace Now: Arabs and Jews Must Go Their Separate Ways
18 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, "To your descendants [through Isaac] I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates: 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites."
THEY MUST GO
It is imperative that there begins, today, a campaign among world Jewry to explain the full extent of the Arab hatred and danger. The complete truth must be told to the masses of good Jews both to justify the need to remove the Arabs and to expose the dangers of the liberal Establishment bloc.
Thoughts on Meir Kahane...
The idea that Jew-hatred was the problem of the Jew-hater and that it was the job of the Jew to "educate" the Jew-hater not to manifest that hatred - expressed in the following Talmudic dictum "he who raises his hand to bless you, bless him first; he who raises his hand to kill you, kill him first" - was truly liberating for me, who had always been taught that "good Jewish boys don't fight".
Israel's Betrayal of the Jews
Let Jews and Israelis examine Israel's betrayal of the Jews before it's too late and Jerusalem suffers under EU occupation.
Satan inspired the Romans to mock God and dishonor our Father by attempting to erase Israel's name off the map! "They have said, 'Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more'" (Psalms 83:4).
Shimon Peres Has No Clothes: Where's the Peace?
Israel has no peace partners, and every one of the Arab groups' charters or covenants call for Israel's destruction. Fatah, Hamas, the PLO -- they're all one and the same except for patience and procedures.
Christian Zionists, Jews, and Israel
I am a Bible-believer, a Christian-Zionist (one who believes the Prophets foretold the restoration of Jews first of all 12 Tribes of Israel to the Promised Land of Israel before the end of this world as we know it). I am not a Protestant or a "Jew for Jesus" and certainly not a member of the Roman Catholic Cult. I am a baptized member of the Sabbath-keeping Church of God...
