Shame, Shame, when Jews are Denied their Civil Rights in their own Land!

Two Jews were arrested this Tuesday for hoisting in the air Israieli flags while singing HaTikva, the national anthem of the Jewish State during a visit to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Shame on us all for not filling the streets of Israel in protest over the denial of Jews to exercise their civil right to fly the Magen David and sing the national athem anywhere in the land of Israel.

Their activism should not be seen as an act of idealism for the few but rather a courageous display of Jewish pride that all Jews should feel when making a stand against discrimination on the basis of race and religion.

The solution to this problem is, then, the replacement of the unequal advantages that result from pandering to Arab extremism. At the moment we have a thing called “governance”, when in actuality we should have government accountability generating the rule of law as it stands in the statuet books.

Should Jews ignore the plight of their Temple Mount we as a people would be guilty of throwing away the basic dynamism on which the Jewish State was founded.

My argument is, that the moral vocabulary we inherited from the liberal past now serves to conceal the realities of contemporary double standards rather than revealing the lie that underpins the Temple Mount status quo.

The two Jews arrested today for violating nothing more than others sensitivities joined the 51 Jews arrested in 2021 for exercising their right to all of the historical Land of Israel.

Jews wake up and demand a spiritual and political redemption. It’s your right of return!

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)
