Once again the United Nations rallied together in an “emergency session” to decry the Jewish Connection to Jerusalem and the Land of Israel.
Without missing a beat, Israeli politicians, Jews, and Zionists worldwide immediately took to their Facebook and Twitter accounts in a fury to rail against the evil resolution. Who would dare to question the right of the Jewish Nation to her holy, undivided and eternal capital?
However, while the UN was voting against Jerusalem, the Israeli Government was doing something much more sinister and dangerous.
This week at least four Jews were arrested for the evil crime of “praying” on the holiest Jewish site, the Temple Mount.
While the UN denounced Jerusalem and the Temple Mount with words, the Israeli Government continued to stab the heart and soul of the Jewish People with anti-Jewish policies from the times of British Mandate and the Greek Occupation. Yes, the same Greeks against whom the Maccabees revolted.
It’s amazing how we can light our Chanukiyot/Menorahs night after night and remain blind as bats to its message. I am sure Judah Maccabee is rolling in his grave.
Strangely enough, while we heard a mass outcry against the UN, there has been dead silence regarding the holy four who were arrested this week for the crime of practicing Judaism in the most sacred of all Jewish places. How easy is it to point fingers at those who openly hate us, but how much more difficult is it to look inwards and call out the evil policies of our very own leadership.
Our anger at the UN has simply become a mechanism to drown out the cries and pain of our Holy City and Mount, which still awaits true redemption. If the UN did not exist, the Israeli Government would have to invent it, for how else could they divert attention away from their own misdeeds.
The time has come to face the unpleasant truth; the UN simply just reaffirmed Israeli Policy.
I look forward to your comments and thoughts.
