Great timing on the Chicago teacher's strike!

With many parents longing for the first weeks of school so as to enjoy a few uninterrupted hours, the Chicago Teacher's Union knew precisely when to strike the blow that would put the most pressure on Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the school administration to cave in.

Israel Evacuates West Bank Outpost - WSJ.com

Israel Evacuates West Bank Outpost - WSJ.com

The link above is to an article in the Wall Street Journal.  I didn't write that (ha-ha) and I didn't write the following challenge to the removal of Orthodox Israelis from the town of Migron.  Not only did I learn a new word (Fakensteins), but the writer also forced me to remember Ariel Sharon, a man much vilified by the left but admired by all those who consider that today's "Fakenstinians" were not around in 1967, nor very much in evidence 2500 years ago in Judea and Samaria.  Anyway, here's what one guy thought: 

1. It has never been proven that the land on which Migron was built is owned by an Fakenstinians. No one has proven or even offered to prove that the land is owned by anyone. The so called legal experts in the Israeli government base their opinion of the Supreme Court decision that any land not owned by individual Israelis or by the State is considered to be owned by Fakenstinians.

2. Migron was authorized by former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, and built with the approval of the Israeli government

3. Although most nations consider Israeli town built in Judea and Samaria to be illegal, there are many well written legal opinions that conclude just the opposite including a recent report by the Levy Commission that grants Israel the right all of the land it won in the defensive war of 1967. This is land captured from Jordan who illegally occupied the land after the 1947 war until 1967. An excellent book entitled “The Legal Foundation and Borders of Israel under International Law” by Howard Grief a noted international law expert, gives ample reason why Judea and Samaria belong to the State of Israel.

4. Although Israel agreed under pressure from the Obama Administration to a ten month moratorium on building in Judea and Samaria to facilitate a return to peace talks, Fakenstinian President Mahmoud Abbas, refused to negotiate during that time.

This forced evacuation of Jewish people from our own land is a disgrace, and points out how spineless our current Prime Minster is. He worries more about the opinion of the rest of the world than he does about the people who voted his government into office.

The Prime Minister recently blocked legislation that would have annexed all of Judea and Samaria to the State of Israel rather than leaving under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of Defense. He chose to table the bill with threats that any of his party members who supported it would lose their ministerial appointments. Had the legislation passed, which it surely would have done, had it come to a vote, then evacuations of towns like Migron would never happen.

The Prime Minster has also decided to ignore the aforementioned Levy Report, which gives legal credence to Israel's right to the land it won in the 1967 Six Day War.

In spite of the failures of this government the people of Israel, and particularly the people who have the gumption and tenacity to live in Judea and Samaria will prevail in Jewish people occupying our land. This will happen only because the birth rate of the people who live in Judea and Samaria is several times greater than those who would give away our land in a nanosecond.

Never forget that G-d made a covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that this land belongs to the Jewish people, and in spite of the fact that we were banished from our land for almost 2,000 years, we, the Jewish people are occupying our land, and we will continue to do so. The G-d that I believe in is good on His promises, and no matter what our Prime Minister and the other nations of the world think or do, we will prevail, and we will move toward the coming of Mosiach (Messiah), and humanity finally realizing that G-d is the only power that runs the world.
