THE LADY DOESN’T BACK DOWN
Regev doesn’t back down
This Tuesday saw Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu replace Culture Minister Miri Regev, who had made it crystal clear she could no longer fulfil her Ministerial role if called upon to approve work on the prayer Pavilion at the Western Wall, citing her conscience and ‘Jewish tradition’.
Regev Doesn’t Back Down
So what’s all the fuss about you may well ask? Well, the original decision to develop the pavilion goes back to January 31 2016, a culmination of decades of militant activism by the feminist (PC) Women of the Wall. Their short-term aim to promote mixed-gender prayer at the Kotel.
Their long-term goal Israel’s emasculation.
How we as a people of Promise respond to this insidious challenge will go right to the heart of what it is to be a Jew in the Land of Israel today.
Rabbi Meir Kahane, of blessed memory, taught that G-d established the concepts of good and evil and separated between them, and He thereby fashioned a fundamental principle for the universe and for Israel – separation, without which the universe cannot endure.
Separation is what makes good and evil clearly distinguishable, thereby preventing the blurring and mixing from which is born fraud.
Rabbi Kahane goes on to say...”For worshippers of foreign culture, “equality” in our day has become a golden calf, an abomination. Some are unwilling to accord unequal status to different concepts, nations or people, arguing that our preferences are coloured by personal tendencies and sentiments. They, therefore, demand that all thoughts be treated as equal.
Equality of ideas and people is a pretext for everyone to do as he pleases, for if nothing is defined as better than anything else, then everything becomes permissible and acceptable.”
Its Black and White
Miri Regev is to be commended for her loyalty to the ‘Ways of the Sages’ in the face of unbending opposition.
That said what are we left with after all the noise and division has exhausted itself.
We are left with the Holy Wall, it too is broken but it embodies the Achdut (Unity) of our People its past and its future.
