Diagnosis of a Mental Disorder

A mental disorder has crippled Israel. This disorder is rooted in fear, but this fear has yet to be adequately diagnosed.

The idea that fear permeates the Jewish psyche is not new. It is the well-known consequence of two thousand years of statelessness and dispersion, persecution and humiliation, pogroms and holocaust. It is the inevitable result of the world’s perennial and deadly hatred of Jews and Judaism. » Continue reading “Diagnosis of a Mental Disorder”

Can Israel Survive as a “Democracy”?

Although Israel’s system of governance is far from being democratic, Israeli politicians have a democratic mentality—the key tendency of which is moral egalitarianism. This egalitarianism prompts them to seek, rather than shun, negotiations with Arab dictatorships in the hope of achieving peace. Little do they understand the moral significance and deadly consequences of such negotiations, and neither do “politically correct” political scientists.

The story begins with certain principles of democracy. » Continue reading “Can Israel Survive as a “Democracy”?”

Perfidy

Israel faces the prospect of being ruled by a government led by Ehud Olmert, chairman of Kadima, a party that renounces all ideologies, hence a party with no past, no moral values, hence no Jewish values—hence a party that has renounced Judaism. Such a party, by definition, can only consist of unmitigated Egotists. Such a party can only consist of traitors—traitors of the Jewish people and of the Jewish State of Israel.

Is it not remarkable that a prominent rabbi and a university president joined this mindless and soulless party? » Continue reading “Perfidy”

Joe Settler Endorses Marzel's Hazit

Elections 2006: Joe Settler Endorses…

If you had asked me last year which party I would endorse for the next elections, by default I would have said the National Union.

I respect Benny Elon and Aryeh Eldad both as individuals and as upright, unwavering legislatures. Once Efi Eitam joined their party I felt they presented an appealing team that well represented many of the national and partisan issues important to me. » Continue reading “Joe Settler Endorses Marzel's Hazit

Don’t Waste Your Vote!

By Avi Hyman and Yosef Fuerst

With only a day to go have you decided where your vote is going? Are you at peace with your decision? Or are you like too many people allowing the pollsters and naysayers to decide where your ballot goes?

This past summer countless Jewish tears were shed as we all suffered through the expulsion and destruction of Gush Katif and the Northern Shomron communities. We all stood by helpless as thousands of soldiers bearing the Jewish flag on their uniforms dragged our people away from our territory with despicable ease. Ariel Sharon proved that after 2000 years of exile it still isn’t that difficult to uproot Jews and send them packing.

Ask yourself, throughout this travesty where were the people we on the right elected to prevent such an occurrence? » Continue reading “Don’t Waste Your Vote!”

The Battered Woman Syndrome

by Baruch Marzel
Mar 27, '06 / 27 Adar 5766

Those same political hacks who failed in the struggle and took part in the government's plans for the expulsion from Gush Katif are asking us to hold our noses and vote for them.

The provocative campaign of the National Union-National Religious Party against my candidacy for the Knesset is, above all, reminiscent of the battered woman. A man beats, abuses and dishonors his wife, who, in great anger, throws him out of the house; yet, he is sure that he will return. » Continue reading “The Battered Woman Syndrome”

GOOD NEWS!!!

We are hearing from sources around the country that the Jewish National Alliance—Hazit—is winning more and more “fence-sitters” and will break the electoral threshold!

That’s right. People are sick of the system and those who profit from it—the existing parties. » Continue reading “GOOD NEWS!!!”

Who can Chabad support in the Elections for Knesset?

Orange Chabad Rabbis Support Hazit
By Aliza Karp

It has recently been publicized that the Chabad Rabbinical Court in Eretz Yisorel has made a statement for its own communities, and for the general public, to vote for parties which have the best chance of actually getting elected, as opposed to voting for small, upstart parties that have a higher risk of not getting the minimum number of votes. The admitted implication of this position is that they are urging people not to vote for Hazit, the party of Baruch Marzel.

I looked at the names of the Rabbis on the Chabad Court who came out ostensibly against Hazit. » Continue reading “Who can Chabad support in the Elections for Knesset?”

What You Should Know To Vote Wisely

A. Introduction

1. I’ve been in Israel almost 30 years, and I have never seen so much public confusion before an election. To penetrate this confusion, you have to go back to the January 2003 election.

2. A few days after the election, Avigdor Lieberman, who then headed National Union, convened a meeting of various representatives of the “nationalist camp.” I was present representing the Yamin Israel Party. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss whether National Union should join the Sharon government. I (and others) urged Lieberman NOT to join the government: we said it would be a betrayal of the nationalist camp.

3. Why? » Continue reading “What You Should Know To Vote Wisely”
