Police forces in large arrived in the town of Beit El on Monday night in preparation for the demolition of the Draynoff Homes, which the High Court had ordered to be demolished....There were no reports of injuries, but at least 30 people were arrested.The High Court on Sunday yet again sought to put a halt to plans to prevent the demolition of the homes, issuing an injunction against any construction work that would result from the removal of objections to the project by a planning council.
First of all, I think that we should consider Disengagement another of the terrible things that happened to the Jewish People on the 9th of the Jewish Month of Av. The 9th of Av is more than a specific date; it's a season. Anything that causes dangerous repercussions and is triggered by an event in the first half of Av, before TU (15th) B'Av is connected to the awful series of events. That is especially when they are connected to destruction of Jewish Homes, community life and the denial of Jewish Sovereignty.
How ironic, or typical to be honest that this decision is yet again by a Likud government. Remember that it was the Likud, led by its founding leader Menachem Begin which gave the Sinai to Egypt and destroyed Yamit and many Jewish communities in the process. Then again, it was the Likud, then led by Arik Sharon that masterminded the dastardly Disengagement which caused the handing over of Gush Katif and part of Northern Shomron to Arab terrorists. The thriving Jewish communities in Gush Katif are now ghost towns and/or terror launching pads against Israeli cities in the south and center of the country. Please remember--do not forget--that the Gazan Arab terrorists succeeded in hitting Tel Aviv last summer.
I don't vote Likud and I don't celebrate Likud "victories." Davka the Left may be in favor of all of these withdrawals/destructions, but they have never had the power to actually enforce them in the way that the Likud has. That is because the when the Likud is in the Opposition it is further to the Right than any of its governments.
And, I haven't forgotten Amona and its horrors, nor Migron nor any other similar anti-Jewish rights/settlement acts by Israeli governments. None of these have brought us peace, respect or security. There is no Justice in them, no matter what our "Supreme Court" has ruled. They are all dangerous travesties and tragedies, the modern suicidal attempts of the Leftist ruling elite to forge international alliances. The results just make us weak and vulnerable. It encourages antisemitism and Arab terrorism.
