Nobody is quite sure why Boaz Albert of Yitzhar has been sentenced, restricted, banished from his home.
Boaz Albert has repeatedly refused to leave his home in the town of Yitzhar in Samaria (Shomron), despite an administrative order from the IDF ordering him to stay out of the Samaria region. The order was issued without a hearing or trial, and Albert says he has no idea why it was issued.You'd think that the Israeli security forces would have bigger fish to fry.
He has published an op-ed explaining his decision not to obey the order. (Arutz 7)
Here's the video of the police's latest arrest of Albert for defying the law and living in his home with his family and tending his vineyards.
There's something dangerously fokokt in this country when their police and security focus is on Jews rather than on Arab terrorists.
Boaz Albert has become a cause célèbre by those who value the Jewish connection to the Land of Israel and full civil and religious rights for Jews here. That's certainly the exact opposite of what the government wants, so the persecution of Boaz Albert by the government is only strengthening those who are dissatisfied with Israeli Governmental policies.
This police and judicial farce only reinforces the feeling among many of us that we lack, and desperately need, full Jewish sovereignty here in the Land of Israel.
I just wonder what is the true agenda of the Israeli Government? I follow actions, rather than fancy words, and these actions against Boaz Albert are horrendously disturbing. It seems much too similar to the old USSR's "gulag" mentality. Many Soviet immigrants to Israel have strong feelings of déjà vu.
This is further proof that Israel has a Leftist Government. Prime Minister Binyamin's periodic fine words are just smoke screen to hide his true agenda. For all of those who thought, and continue to think, that the Likud is Right wing on the Israeli political spectrum, sorry, but facts prove you wrong. The Israeli Government coalition does have some strong patriotic Right wing MK's, but it unabashedly campaigned as Center and is ruled by a small group of Leftists.
