Where Are the Guards, Mr. Sharon?

[Isaac Kohn]

Summary ... There are no threats against Lilly`s grave. Judaism has set an air of reverence over the eternal resting place of any Jew. No Jew whose heart is permeated with Torah values and teachings would ever so much as entertain the ugly thought of desecrating a grave.

Dear Mr. Sharon:

Hearing the above news made me ill. There is no other word to describe the revulsion I felt in hearing what I take to be yet another one of your lies. You are resorting to the foulest dissemination of disinformation, and your fabrications ought to be nominated for a Pulitzer in the category of fiction.

In your rush to de-legitimize your former constituents and supporters, you know no bounds. In your onslaught against all that Judaism stands for, you do set yourself no limit. The smell of power has entered your nostrils, and the intoxicating fragrance of dictatorial powers has so befuddled your senses, that truth and falsehood have become one.

In other words, Mr. Sharon, I have no reason not to believe that you are a liar.

There are no threats against Lilly's grave. Judaism has set an air of reverence over the eternal resting place of any Jew. No Jew whose heart is permeated with Torah values and teachings would ever so much as entertain the ugly thought of desecrating a grave.

No, Mr. Sharon, no. The alleged fear of desecration is nothing more than another attempt on your part to besmirch those who oppose your plan to expel Jews from their homes. It is but another attempt to tar and feather those whose legitimate opposition to your one-man rule has become a thorn in your side.

In order to legally arrest, jail and expel political opponents, one needs a reason. If a reason is not readily available, fabrication is the best tool to employ. But one cannot go on fabricating forever, Mr. Sharon.

Yes, there are threats of desecration against graves. There is a very real indeed a burning fear that graves of loved ones will be abused, defiled and vandalized. Those fears, in fact, have time and again been shown to be justified. And those fears, Mr. Sharon, are about to be realized in the desecration and defilement you are about to allow against those who died and were buried in the cities and towns you are about to hand over to implacable enemies of the Jewish people

Where are the guards, Mr. Sharon?

Thousands of Jewish graves on the Mount of Olives have been defiled and desecrated by those with whom you shook hands. Go out, Mr. Sharon, go and take a good look at the thousands of gravestones that have been destroyed and defiled. Go, Mr. Prime Minister, go to Joseph's tomb (yes, the one abandoned in Shechem) and see what your newfound friends have done.

Where were the guards, Mr. Sharon?

Hundreds of ancient graves in Ashdod, Tzefat, and most recently Acco are excavated and the bones of long-dead Jews are allowed to roll in the dirt of archeological diggings. Graves, Mr. Sharon. Graves are being desecrated on a daily basis with your permission. And when protesters decry the heartless ransacking and defilement, your guards, Mr. Sharon, do come. They come not to guard the graves from being desecrated but to guard and protect those who have taken the desecration of Jewish graves to a new height of callousness.

Where are the guards, Mr. Prime Minister? Where are the guards you should have sent to protect the remnants of our ancient Temple on the Mount?

Where were the guards needed to stop the truckloads of ancient artifacts dug out by the Muslims (they are still doing it!) from underneath the Temple Mount and dumped as so much garbage?

Don't tell me, Mr. Sharon; I think I know. Perhaps no guards can be spared because they're busy being trained for the fulfillment of your decree expelling Jewish families from their homes and communities.

You have become so apt in the art of lies and fabrications, Mr. Prime Minister, that you have forgotten one of Judaism's explicit teachings: "Guard thy tongue from evil and thy lips from speaking falsehood.."

The 'Palestinian' News You Don't See

The tragedy of the pro-'Palestinian' movement is its attachment to a single narrative: "Look at how wretched the lives of the 'Palestinian' people are," they tell us, "It is because of Israeli oppression." Because this narrative must be constantly reinforced, there is little room for real reporting about the failures of the 'Palestinian' leadership and the corruption and infighting that have caused the 'West Bank' [i.e., Judea & Samaria] and Gaza to languish.

The "Spontaneous" Intifada Is Orchestrated by the Palestinian Leadership

The Arab leadership is attempting to portray the current Intifada as a kind of popular, spontaneous struggle that expresses the population's despair over the political situation. In reality, it is an Intifada supported and directed by the Arab leadership of the PA/PLO-Fatah and Hamas.

Uncomfortable Questions for Comfortable Jews: The Temple Mount

Rabbi Meir Kahane points out that, contrary to popular belief, the Temple Mount is in Arab hands, the cunning Arab foxes. And the words of Motta Gur ring hollowly — and it is the Jews who are to blame. They took a miracle and disdained it. They, who took holiness and profaned it. They who were given a Zion, a Jerusalem, Temple Mount — gave it over to the jackal-foxes.

Hamas Document - 2017

Hamas explains general principles and objectives in 42-article document.

The Real Goal of the 'Palestinian' Intifada

PA/PLO leader Abbas seems intentionally to ignore that he and his PA/PLO are responsible for the violence, as a result of their daily incitement against Israel. A recent poll found that approximately half of 'Palestinians' believe the "Intifada" should lead to the destruction of Israel.

The Hidden Hand Behind the Palestinian Terror Wave

What is really going on behind the scenes of the current terrorist attacks? It's actually a lot more than what is seen on a daily basis. Hamas is fighting to take control of the PA/PLO while Fatah is doing its best to stay in power and get Gaza back under its control.

A Matter of Priority - The Jonathan Pollard Case

US Jewish leaders blew it recently when what was a rare opportunity to ask the US president face-to-face to release Jonathan Pollard, they didn't even consider the matter as being a priority.

Obama Declares War on Israel

Obama needs to wake up. The real enemy is not Netanyahu. The real enemy is Iran, Hizb'Allah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Islamic State, and the establishment of a terrorist state in the midst of Israel.

Could Barak Obama Swing the Upcoming Israeli Election?

It's no state secret that US President Barack Obama is not a huge fan of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. His distain for the Jewish leader is well-known throughout the world; he's never tried to hide it. But now that Israel is having new elections in March does it mean Obama could, either directly or indirectly, influence the elections in Israel in order to obtain a defeat for Netanyahu?
