This is just one of these situations. The junta in place has decided that holding on to power is more important to them than morality, Jewish law, Israeli law, even international law ! And for that they have created their own rules - gag orders, etc - that make it impossible for good people to know the truth about the horrible travesty of justice and abuse of human rights perpetrated by their "law" enforcement, courts, etc. As I had said , SODOMITES in the full sense of the word. And now we, including public figures, are called upon to take a stand and show what we are made of. This is our test from Hashem! We only get one chance to show Him and the whole world our true heart.
Nobody can wage this war against lies, corruption, perversion, and plain evil alone: we all need each other. And we need the flame of indignation going. Each of us has a role he or she can play. Do what you can: if you know how to write, write. If you know how to make movies, make a movie. If you know how to speak in public, speak up. The main thing is to do whatever you can to publicize the great evil perpetrated in Israel by the junta in place calling itself government. Until now they might have been a government, but with their whitewashing of the terrible crimes committed by the Jewish Section of the Shabak that have come to light, they are slipping further and further down the slippery slope of illegitimacy and dictatorship. Whoever is willing to defend torture and rape of a minor in an official dungeon and call it legitimate, shows he or she has completely lost his or her moral compass, and should leave government immediately before he or she is impeached and convicted of complicity in the crime. And whoever recognizes that aiding and abetting such actions is tantamount to committing them, please speak up now! If not in the name of Torah, if not in the name of Hashem, than in the name of human decency!
We bloggers have a special role. We each have something to contribute in our own way. One day one is down, the other day another is too busy with personal matters. So we need to help each other, take turns, share information. This is what I am doing today. I am sharing with you one great post by a great blogger, here:
And another one here:
Please spread the word. Pass on the torch, let the flame of truth burn high and shine its light on the evildoers, until they will have nowhere left to hide.
And don't forget to read "Guantanamo..." and "Meanwhile the tenth of Tevet....." for the full story....
...On another note, this is what I found on A7 later tonight:
I have not seen the video mentioned. But I ask you, Rabbi Lau:
In YOUR view, torturing and sodomizing young Jewish men IS Judaism?
Did you cry out when the young men suffered this horrific attack?
Do you PERMIT sterilizing an animal?
What about sterilizing a young Jewish man against his will by selectively maiming his organs?
What is a more important halachah:
the issur against Mishkav Zachar, specially in the form of RAPE of a Jewish man?
the issur of maiming and endangering another Jew's life by brutalizing, burning, torturing him?
or the issur against rejoicing over the downfall of your enemy and/or his family?
Which caused Sodom's destruction: the above sins against the young men?
Or the sin of rejoicing over the pain of your enemy?
I think you know the answers as well as I do, if not much, much better.
I am very disappointed in you, Rabbi David Lau. Your words ring so empty, it is so sad.
Thank G-d other Jews understand the REAL issues: in New York, I am gratified to see AFSI members participating in a heartfelt demonstration against this outrage.
Here is a video of this demonstration in front of the Israeli Consulate; Yasher Koach to you, friends!
THIS VIDEO WAS REMOVED, I ASSUMED CENSORED, WITHOUT MY PERMISSION, DS.
Anyway, to make up for it here is an article that contains pictures similar to the video, with a lot more information about the boy:
