NO more silence, no more appeasement, no more fear…

On Tuesday the 5th of October, Justice Bilhha Yahalom of the Jerusalem Magistrates Court ruled that silent prayer at the Temple Mount cannot be construed as a criminal act. Those prayers should be allowed without police constraint.

They say a week is a long time in politics, and this last week has proven to be no exception to the rule. Within days the Jerusalem District Court reversed the Magistrate Court ruling acknowledging Jew’s right to pray silently on The Temple Mount.

Hamas was quick to take credit for the overturning of the earlier Court ruling claiming it as a victory for the Palestinian people over Jewish attempts to infringe on Arab claims over the Temple Mount.

Hamas was 100% correct in taking credit for the backdown but not before Jewish politicians and police had agitated for such a reversal, yet again another victory for Arab intransigence over Jewish fear.

Silent prayer itself is an unacceptable compromise, and hidden within those prayers are the seeds of appeasement that can only lead, if perpetuated, to the loss of Jewish sovereignty over all of Eretz Israel.

Silence that’s the last thing Jews need right now. What is needed is an authentic Jewish voice protesting the national disintegration under current Jewish leadership, silent, calm, and content while our enemies grow stronger every day we remain silent, emboldening their claims against the Jewish State and its very right to exist.

No lesson seems to have been learned from the last seventy-three years since the restoration of the State of Israel. Our leaders are content to remain silent in the face of the Palestinian myth, which is used every day in an attempt to steal our Land. Using every lie in the book to establish artificially what history itself failed to accomplish.

The Arabs accomplice Western elites and public opinion, themselves ill-informed and biased against Jewish interests, suffer no guilt pangs when proposing the thief should be rewarded by stripping the victim of all he has.

With friends like these, we should be apprehensive indeed. Appeasing one’s enemies only strengthened their resolve to destroy their foe. The Jewish house is burning while so many of its people are asleep, and our leaders refuse to sound the alarm bells and send in the fire brigade.

Israel’s leaders suffer moral paralysis, loss of purpose and no longer recognize the malignant disease of a dying Zionism and its role in its present state.

No more silence, no more appeasement no more fear of what the goy might say. Instead, inspire our people to embrace a national religious existence and raise the flag of Zionism while involved in its daily life and reject those who would encourage us to commit national suicide.

It’s time to break the silence and proclaim loudly this Land is our Land! Let us now believe it one and all!
