At annual Super Bowl Sunday prayer event, held in Israel for the first time, women at the Western Wall rejoiced in the recent egalitarian win there. But some women consider it a loss.20:11 07.02.16 | 0 comments
Chevron was the FIRST Jewish location in Israel, an ancient place mentioned many times in the Torah, as the final resting place of the progenitors of the nation, and as a town of repute. The Arabs still remember with glee the murder of men, women, and children in 1929, which terminated a Jewish connection to the city that spanned the centuries. That some Israelis today oppose going there is no surprise, as they have no connection to Israel, other than the place they happened to be born. They are the result of the 'New Jew' created by the early Zionists, who claimed there was no Jewish history and no Jewish culture. Now we see the result; ostensible Jews who are clueless as to why even those staunch secularists chose this bit of turf as opposed to Uganda. Chevron is as much part of our heritage as Jerusalem, maybe more so, and those who see it as occupied must be true to themselves and admit that Tel Aviv is also occupied. Otherwise, they are hypocrites, which is the truth in any event.
