IT IS PRECISELY BECAUSE WE ARE JEWS THAT WE DEMAND THAT THE PALESTINIAN
PEOPLES BE RETURNED TO THEIR HOMES AND PROPERTIES!
In our Torah we are taught, that we are forbidden to have our own
State, even if all the nations including the Palestinian people,
would agree to give it to us. Yes, in our Torah we are taught that
G-D sent the Jewish people into exile around two thousand years
ago. He then expressly forbade us to attempt to end this G Dly decreed
exile. The Talmud clearly states that G-D foreswore us with three
oaths; one, that we are not to go up enmass to the Land of Israel.
Two, that we are forbidden to take up arms against any nation. Three,
we should not attempt to bring about the redemption before its proper
time. We are to wait patiently in exile until the time when G-D
Himself will see fit to end the exile. At that time, He Himself,
without any human intervention will bring about the redemption.
At that time all the nations will recognize the one G-D and will
serve Him together peacefully.
Secondly, we are commanded to be good and compassionate. Of course
we are forbidden to steal, kill, etc. Yes, in our Torah we are commanded
to be fair. We are called upon to pursue justice. And, what could
be more unjust then the century old attempt of the Zionist movement
to invade an other people’s land, to drive them out and steal
The early Zionists proclaimed that they were a people without a
land going to a land without a people.
Innocent sounding words.
But utterly and totally untrue.
Palestine was a land with a people. A people that were developing
a national consciousness.
We have no doubt that would Jewish refugees, have come to Palestine,
not with the intention of dominating, not with the intention of
making a Jewish state, not with the intention of dispossessing,
not with the intention of depriving the Palestinians of their basic
rights, that they would have been welcomed by the Palestinians,
with the same hospitality that Islamic peoples have shown Jews throughout
history. And we would have lived together as Jews and Muslims lived
before in Palestine in peace and harmony.
To our Islamic and Palestinian friends around the world, please
hear our message --
There are Jews around the world who support your cause. And when
we support your cause we do not mean some partition scheme proposed
When we say support your cause we do not mean the cut off and cut
up pieces of the West Bank offered by Barak at Camp David together
with justice for less than 10 % of the refugees.
We do not mean anything other than returning the entire land, including
Jerusalem, to Palestinian sovereignty!
At that point justice demands that the Palestinian people should
decide if and how many Jews should remain in the Land.
This is the only path to true reconciliation.
But we demand yet more. We demand, that in returning the land back
to its rightful owners, we have not yet done enough. There should
be an apology to the Palestinian people which is clear and precise.
Zionism did you wrong. Zionism stole your homes. Zionism stole your
By so proclaiming we proclaim before the world that we are the people
of the Torah, that our faith demands that we be honest and fair
and good and kind.
We have attended hundreds of pro Palestinian rallies over the years
and everywhere we go the leaders and audience greet us with the
warmth of Middle Eastern hospitality. What a lie it is to say that
Palestinians in particular or Muslims in general hate Jews. You
hate injustice. Not Jews.
Fear not my friends. Evil cannot long triumph. The Zionist nightmare
is at its end. It is exhausted. Its latest brutalities are the death
rattle of the terminally ill.
We will yet both live to see the day when Jew and Palestinian will
embrace in peace under the Palestinian flag in Jerusalem.
And ultimately when mankind’s Redeemer will come, the sufferings
of the present will long be forgotten in the blessings of the future.
