Eve of Elul 25, 5771; How We Must Respond to the U.N.

Regarding Elul 25, in the Jewish year 0000, Torah tells us, "In the beginning G-d created the world ... ."

On the very first verse in Torah, Genesis 1:1, on the very first word, Rashi tells us how to respond to the world's nations who call Israel robbers for invading and conquering THEIR land. Rashi spells out exactly what to answer these accusers! (see here!)

5,771 years after the Elul 25 of creation, on Friday, eve of Elul 25, 5771, the chief terrorist of the so-called "Palestinian" people will claim - in the United Nations (the world's nations), before a world audience - that Israel and Jerusalem are their territory and the Jewish nation robbed them of it.

Netanyahu will probably bring forth other arguments, unfortunately. Probably he will not invoke the rights we got to the land from God, as per the Torah accounts.

But as long as he does not say as Rashi tells us to say, we will still have a rough ride of it. Only by stating the Jewish claim as Rashi dictates - only this way will pave the way for the world's nations to ACCEPT the Jewish stake in the Land of Israel. We have Torah's say-so!!

Netanyahu should say, "The whole earth belongs to God. He created it and He gave it to whom He saw fit. It was His will to give it to them, and it was His will to take it from them and give it to us!" Anything else, like invoking the sanction of the U.N. back in 1948, or any other "treaty" or armistice, or border issue, or terrorist issues will not cut it. God wants us Jews to tell the nations of the world what He wants to hear us say. Only this recital will sway the world to finally lay off of Israel and bear down on its enemies!!

When Rashi lived over a millennium ago, there were no nations that would even dream of calling Jews robbers for conquering Israel because Jews had no army, had no formal collective cohesion; All they had was a scattered, minimal presence across the globe, bitterly oppressed, tortured and killed. To think the Jewish people would later have the Land of Israel under their control was - if not prophecy - then certainly wholesome innocent faith in God's promise to return us to the Holy Land. It behooves us to appreciate the depth of Rashi's faith and join him in telling the Gentiles of the world the real reason the Land of Israel belongs to the Jews.


  1. I love your posts was was upset to see the map of Israel missing Judea and Samaria!!

  2. "Probably he will not invoke the rights we got to the land from God, as per the Torah accounts. "

    As long as any argument puts or invokes God as the reason for the creation of a nation then others will argue the same. Since Christians believe that Jews did not imbrace Jesus and Muslims will support that and add Mohammed, they by default will not recognize Jewish claims using God and will add their scriptures to justify why such a divine claim does not work.

    Israel's rights to existance is based on the reality of man and that is the only justification - and a strong one.

    Additionally, comments such as the above with "judea and Samaria" are exactly the reason why Israelis have such a serious image problem and for my part, are exactly the ugly statements that provoke and deserve condemnation. The Settler Movement is simply an ugliness that merits scorn, ridicule and contempt. They are thieves using God as an excuse.

  3. Juniper - I am embarrassed. I did not even notice. Thanks. I had my boy photoshop that immediately.

    For QC's sake, who no longer deserves my attention, I should have used the Israeli map of future Eretz Yisrael. That would really have ticked off his British anti-semitic impulses.

  4. I noticed the old-hat and frankly pathetic excuse that if you do not agree then you must be anti-semite. That simply does not stick. I express my opinion and that is all, that you and your friends support taking land from others based on what you think God said is also the excuse that terrorists have. That you obviously do not support the Two State Solutioni your right, as much as it is my right to point out that by not supporting two states you are supporting an immoral position. The current Israeli PM would agree with me and I am sure he would not use that pathetic anti-semite excuse as well.

    Also, and again explain to me why I am immediately labelled anti-semite, that I think The Settler Movement is nothing short of a land-grab and abusing the Bible as a justification.

    FYI, I do not support the unilateral demand by Abbas in the UN because it is not based on negotiations and peace, AND I do not believe that at present the Palestinian Authority is capapble of running a nation.

  5. "Israel’s number one journalist, Nahum Barnea of Yediot Aharonot, wrote the following today about the immediate prospects for violence in the West Bank as a result of the UN showdown::

    “Surprising as it sounds, the IDF and Israel Police both figure that the greatest danger at the moment is not from the Palestinian side, but from the Jewish side. ‘Price tag’ operations by settler extremists are spreading. Eight mosques have been attacked in the last two weeks with no arrests of any culprits being made. The Shin Bet stands helpless in the face of these events. While the Palestinian leadership is calling for restraint, Jewish extremists are fanning the flames, which are liable to sweep thousands of Arabs up on both sides of the Green Line.

    “This is the danger – and the failure. It is keeping senior security officials awake at night.”

  6. The point is that we have the command to conquer it! The Eretz Hakoidesh isn't ours, it belongs to H' forever and ever... but we have to settle and make mitzvos there! Isn't it?
