    I did the download and added Giyus.org to my links !! This is something that everyone who loves Israel can do !! I really believe that the "good guys" do out-number the "bad guys", it's just that they are so vocal and we're too silent !! My grandfather used to say, "It's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease." The opposition understands this very well !! It's time we get a little louder and a lot more pro-active !! One of my favorite quotes is, " All it takes for evil to win is for good people to do nothing." We've got to do all we can to see that the TRUTH is heard over the lies !! This is a great way to do that !!

    Why would I defend the Jew-beating, Jew-expelling, Jew-imprisoning, cemetery-desecrating, shul-demolishing, Jew-betraying secular state, who are plotting as we speak to expel 100,000 Jews, who exploit the suffering of Jew to legitimise their evil (for the Lebanon conflict will bring "momentum to convergence")??

    Dear Chenyok,
    I understand exactly where your coming from !! I can not speak for Tamar or anyone else, but I would like to try to answer your question, "Why would we want to defend the secular state of Yisrael, especially after Gush Katif and in anticipation of planned future withdrawals?" A very good question and one I will try to answer, at least from my own feelings on the subject. This touchs on what I commented about too. It is time for us to speak-out and to no longer remain silent !! I often come across the argument for ahavas Yisrael, as a reason given for not speaking-out against wrongs done by Jews to their fellow Jews, but this is a one-sided argument and not a good one in my opinion. This is about defending the Jewish state of Israel, secular or religious, it is the Jewish Birthright and homeland given by HaShem to the Jewish people forever. Some few religious Jews argue that because it is a secular state with a secular beginning, therefore it is illegitimate, hence they feel no obligation to support, or defend a secular state. I disagree with this attitude and even question their loyalties. Israel is secular today because secular Jews took the lead in establishing a Jewish homeland while the religious debated. It should have been the religious who took the lead in claiming their rightful Birthright and things might would be different now. I hope this doesn't offend anyone because that is certainly not my desire. I am not in any way defending the actions of the secular establishment, to the contrary, I condemn their actions fervently, but "giving away the farm", as my grandfather would have called it, or allowing those in power to do so without a fight, is UNTHINKABLE !! Sure, they gave away Gush Katif and they will give away more, MUCH MORE, if we don't do something to stop it !! This is a golden opportunity for the religious to step-up to the plate and denounce the actions of the "Jew-beating, Jew-expelling, Jew-imprisoning, cemetery-desecrating, shul-demolishing, Jew-betraying secular state". As I said in my previous comment, the "bad guys" (sadly, some of them Jews Too), are very vocal and the good guys, are far too silent, if we remain silent, those in power will achieve their intended objectives and we'll have no one to blame when it happens again, except ourselves for keeping silent and often hiding behind religous arguments to defend our inaction. Ahavas Yisrael demands that we speak-out, not that we keep silent. Silence can kill !! Love is demonstrated in action when we speak the TRUTH, even when no one wants to hear it !! Your not defending the actions of these seculars by supporting Israel, your defending their actions, IF YOU DON'T SPEAK-OUT, because our silence is their greatest strength !! Shalom

    Great idea, Tamar. Chenyok, you might check out the videos on Little Green Footballs. THERE IS A MEDIA WAR going on!! We need to Educate the masses out there. There are a lot of good folks in the US and elsewhere that have no idea that the Media has a bias. You know the old adage...a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, all those doctored up photos have made an impact. Does Reuters, et. all make their (intentional anti-semitic) screw-ups the lead story? No!!! You have to search for the truth. But the doctored up pictures stick in people's minds. We're no longer going to sit back and take that any longer. And the anti-semites can go choke themselves.

    Dear Yesha Woman,
    Where you said, and I quote, " We're no longer going to sit back and take that any longer. And the anti-semites can go choke themselves.", tickled me !! I loved it !! Now that's the kind of ATTITUDE it's going to take to see things change !! When more people have this kind of fighting attitude, we WILL see change !!

    If I may add to the thoughts of "why defend Israel, when the leaders are corrupt". Speaking for myself, when I speak out for Israel, I am doing it for the precious souls of Gush Katif who were kicked out of their homes last year. And for the 'innocent' Jews who are living under constant threat and kassam missle strikes. So it is not that I am speaking out in support of those who had either, directly or indirectly,had a hand in these horrible incidents. Rather I speak out for Israel to defend the victims. And let's face it, when there is no peace in Jerasulem, we are all victims within our own souls, if we want to admit it or not. So, yes I think we should always stand up for the desires we have..to one day, G-d willing witness this peace.
