JPost Lashes Out Against Itamar Ben Gvir With Editorial Hysteria.

The editorial made a great effort to discredit Itamar Ben Gvir by comparing him to the founding fathers of the Jewish State and accusing him of being the antithesis of what Israels founding fathers had in mind when they established the State of Israel and dreamed of coexistence with their Arab neighbours.

The article pursued Ben Gvir with malice verging on hate for a fellow Jew. While cravenly promoting the Arab narrative.

It suggested that the Jewish State’s original leaders sort coexistence with Arabs. At the same time, Itamar Ben Gvir wished to discriminate against Arabs based on ethnicity. Much could be written about some of the dubious leadership shown by the first batch of leaders who had cut their political teeth on the ideology of the Socialist Comintern during the early years of the Soviet Union. Not an ideology for liberal free-flowing ideas.

So what is Itamar Ben Gvir guilty of in reality? His views would seem to support the idea that the business of politics is to maintain law, order, peace, freedom and security within the borders of the sovereign State of Israel. If guilty of anything, it is his unswerving commitment to maintaining peace, upholding national sovereignty in every area where it might be threatened, and maintaining a balance of power among Israel’s neighbours. Threatening behaviour from within or outside the State must be met with a counterthreat sufficient to deter aggression. Ben Gvir is capable of recognizing common interests – providing those interests don’t weaken or compromise national sovereignty.

Itamar Ben Gvir will not indulge in the senseless slaughter of the Jewish States’ citizens nor contemplate incomprehensible goals discredited in the minds of Israelis that would lead to national suicide.

In stark contrast, the Jpost editorial can only offer Israel’s people a soulless continuation of the lost years under Labour that attempted to crush the authentic Jewish spirit and remould it into a poor cousin of the gentile powers. The original model lapsed into nothingness, and the alternatives to Otzma Yehudit will go the same way.

In the meantime, Itamar Ben Gvir continues to tread the well-worn path of Avraham, Yitzhak and Yaakov.

Yosef Yigal Drever

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)

  • Dina says:

    Excellent piece, Yosef Yigal…. I am so proud to be with Itamar and OY, so proud of him and what he and they stand for, so proud to inform those with weak or non-existent Hebrew of what OY stands for, and there is nobody else I would ever vote for. Your article expresses beautifully what OY is all about and why every single caring Jew should vote for them! Y’shar Koach!

    • Dina, your insights are appreciated, and your support is invaluable.

      As you are aware, the upcoming election in Israel is crucial in the Battle for the hearts and minds of Jews. Should the National Zionist forces be defeated by Leftist/Woke Party’s this would not only be an electoral disaster but also a cultural disaster undermining authentic Jewish values for years to come.

      Its that important that Jews go out and vote for Otzma Yehudit on November 1.

      Hadar Yehudit!
