*JDL* Parsha and Weekly Update ~ Week of December 4-10, 2011 – Kislev 8-14 5772

Parshah Vayishlach – Genesis 32:4-36:43
Torah Reading for Week of December 4-10, 2011 – Kislev 8-14 5772

This week’s parsha teaches us how Yaakov has to deal with Esav in order to survive in Galus [exile].

We read the story of Yaakov, who, with great trepidation, was meeting Esav for the first time after all these years. Yaakov offers a prayer to G-d: “Please save me from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esav…” [Bereshis 32:12].

Yaakov’s prayer contains an apparent redundancy — “the hand of my brother, the hand of Esav.” Shouldn’t Yaakov have said, “save me from the hand of my brother, Esav?” However, the pasuk [verse] seems to indicate a prayer to be saved from two different people — from his brother and from Esav.

Rav Shlomo Breur gave a very important  insight into this ‘redundancy.’ Rav Breur says that there are in fact two individuals about whom Yaakov is worried. Yaakov is worried about Esav — the rough sibling who is out to kill him. But Yaakov is also worried about being saved from the hand of his ‘brother.’

Esav can have two faces. He can be the Esav who will kill you, have pogroms against you, try to throw you out of his country and have Inquisitions against you. We certainly have to be saved from this Esav.

However, there is another disguise that Esav uses, and that is the loving brother. This is not the Esav that kills you, it is the Esav that loves you. But the Esav that loves you is sometimes as dangerous as the Esav that will kill you. If we have lost hundreds and thousands and even millions of Jews to the Esav that kills us — we our losing hundreds of thousands of Jews to the Esav who loves us, the Esav that wants to marry us, marry our sons and daughters, and who offers us “salvation through love.” This is Yaakov’s prayer. Save me from Esav andsave me from my brother.

The Pardes Yosef comments on a later pasuk [33:4], where the Torah says that Esav kissed Yaakov (vayishakeihu). The word ‘vayishakeihu’ has dots on top it. Rash”i explains that Esav really wanted to bite Yaakov, but the Medrash says that Yaakov’s neck turned to stone and Esav wasn’t able to bite him, so instead Esav kissed him.

The Pardes Yosef quotes a Yalkut that Esav said, “I won’t kill Yaakov with bows and arrows, but with my mouth and my teeth…” In other words, I will kiss him to death. That is to say, Esav tries two approaches. First he tries biting; but if biting doesn’t work, then the other approach is kissing. A Jew can be literally kissed to death.

This is what Chaza”l are telling us — we need to be on guard against both the Esav who wants to shoot arrows and against the Esav who wants to stretch out his hand.

Saudi Telethon Host Calls for Enslaving Jewish Women

(WASHINGTON DC) April 26, 2002 ..The Saudi Information Agency has obtained a tape by prominent government official cleric Shaikh Saad Al-Buraik calling for enslaving Jewish women. The tape is called “a Monkey Desecrates a Mosque,” and was delivered in a Riyadh government mosque. The monkey refers to Jews.

Al-Buraik was the host of the two-day long telethon, which raised $109 million for Palestinians. Al-Buraik said on the tape that the money raised would go to Palestinian fighters, not the Palestinian Authority.

Al-Buraik, a Wahhabi cleric, is closely tied to Prince AbdulAziz Ben Fahd, the king’s youngest son, and member of the Saudi delegation accompanying Crown Prince Abdullah on his current visit.

He is also the host of “Religion and Life,” a program on government television Channel One and on MBC television owned by Prince AbdulAziz Ben Fahd.

The following are excerpts of the tape:

On the situation in the Palestinian areas he said:

Oh Believer, it’s a wish, as much as it is pains, but we have hopes that the situation in Palestine will explode. No one dies before their day. How many Muslims have died in Chechnya, Bosnia, Kashmir, and Kosovo!!

Is it too dear to us that among our honorable beloved die as martyrs? Their death dates were written before their birth. That they die as martyrs. “Say even if were at your home, those who will die will walk to their death.”

Which is a better choice, to de on your bed, or to die perseverant, fighting, not retreating. Which is better to suffer long before death many days, or taste death quickly?

Which is better to suffer a slow death, or die as a martyr in your way to heaven. A death that you will be forgiven on the first drop of your blood.

When life became perishes we started to drink humiliation many times over.

Oh Palestinian Authority, don’t you see that you are tested once or twice a year? Then you don’t learned or repent.

Isn’t time yet to wage jihad, and call for holy war. Isn’t time that Muslim countries which normalized relations with the Jews to cancel everything that happened from Madrid to Oslo, and Why River, which forbids the supplying of weapons to Muslims in Palestine?

The agreements which canceled jihad, and disassociation from non-Muslims, should all be demolished.

It’s a call to close all embassies opened for the Jews in the land of Islam; it is call to end normalization with Israel.

What international resolution that the Jew respected, prepared by Christians.

On Jews and Christians he said:

People should know that Jews are backed by the Christians, and the battle that we are going through is not with Jews only, but also with those who believe that Allah is a third in a Trinity, and those who said that Jesus is the son of Allah, and Allah is Jesus, the son of Mary.

About America he said:

I am against America until this life ends, until the Day of Judgment;

I am against America even if the stone liquefies

My hatred of America, if part of it was contained in the universe, it would collapse.

She is the root of all evils, and wickedness on earth.

Who else implanted the tyrants in our land, who else nurtured oppression?

Oh Muslim Ummah don’t take the Jews and Christians as allies.

Jewish women as slaves he says:

Muslim Brothers in Palestine, do not have any mercy neither compassion on the Jews, their blood, their money, their flesh. Their women are yours to take, legitimately. God made them yours. Why don’t you enslave their women? Why don’t you wage jihad? Why don’t you pillage them?

Moshe Feiglin runs again – this time he could actually win

Guest Post by Rafi Farber

Late Sunday night, Netanyahu announced that, along with internal elections to choose a new Likud Central Committee and local representatives, the chairmanship of the party itself would be up for grabs. Moshe Feiglin answered the challenge immediately and announced his candidacy. Bibi v Feiglin round IV is now set for January 31, 2012.

All the political pundits in Israel immediately started asking why Netanyahu was doing this. Army radio, Galei Tzahal as they call it here, was abuzz with speculation. Political commentators shot off a bunch of sophisticated columns in all the newspapers explaining that Netanyahu is doing this to “take advantage of his popularity”. I will tell you now that this is false, and I will explain exactly why.

Back in April 2010, the Likud, for the first time in 10 years, was about to have elections to choose a new Likud Central Committee. Netanyahu fought really hard to postpone them because he knew at the time that if they happened back then, he would lose control of the LCC to the right wing of his party who reject him. Eventually the case got to the Supreme Court, those “guard dogs of democracy” as they call themselves, who allowed him to push off democratic elections. In the meantime, Netanyahu’s goal was to strengthen his base in the party by signing up a bunch of people who would vote for him in the next primary.

During that time, there has a been a deluge of even more new Likud members to the right of Bibi, voters that don’t exactly like his whole “building freeze” and uprooting and expulsion of Jewish towns like Migron and Havat Gilad these past few months, not to mention his handing over Hebron to the Arabs and signing the defunct Wye Accords.

And who was Bibi able to sign up to his side during this time? Pretty much nobody.

When Feiglin first for ran for Likud Chairman in 2003, he got 3% of the vote. When he ran again in 2005, he placed 3rd at 13% of the vote, more than quadrupling his previous support. When he ran again in 2007, he doubled again and got 24% of the vote. And that was back before all these new people signed up to the party.

Bibi is not doing this because he’s trying to “take advantage of his popularity”. Within the Likud party membership, he has very little. What he’s actually doing is preparing the ground to jump ship.

He knows he doesn’t have the numbers for the overwhelming victory he desperately needs to secure his place at the head of Likud. He knows we’re too strong by now. He knows that Feiglin will get at least 30-35% of the Likud vote, and that’s being conservative. If Feiglin scores that low in this next election, it will still be a high enough percentage for Bibi to say, “Well, these Feiglinites too strong. We have to get out of here and form a new Kadima II with Ehud Barak.”

This is not just speculation. The cover story of Monday’s Israel HaYom newspaper daily was, “Netanyahu: I did not guarantee refuge for Barak.”

Translation: “I did not promise political refuge for Barak.”

They know it’s in the back of his mind.

If Feiglin scores any higher than 30-35%, and he likely will, Netanyahu will run out of Likud as fast as possible. What will happen then? I guess we’ll all find out, but the party will be left to Feiglin.

The other possibility is that Feiglin outright wins the election. Any of these three possibilities spell the same conclusion. Netanyahu is on his way out of the party. That’s why he’s doing this now. He needs a new party with Barak to continue his plans to break left.

We are living in historic times.  Now is the time for a Jewish revolution in the way we as a nation think and act. 

The JDL attended a candlelight vigil this past week to remember  that horrible day when ‘Marc Lepine’ murdered 14 women.  Many anti Israel bloggers defamed the JDL. The JDL according to these bloggers are worst than evil. The JDL according to these bloggers should be sent to jail and have all their rights taken away. However, despite all the efforts from these anti Israel bloggers, the JDL did attend the candlelight vigil. It was impressive. Many of the speakers, addressed issues that the JDL has advocated. Issues such as Gender Apartheid, Culural Relativism, and Honour Killings were raised loudly. I had a chance to speak one to one with many in attendance and we connected. Our attendance at this event revealed a softer side to JDL. Our group does have an ear to listen and a heart that is warm. We have those important values in our ideology. The main reason why the false left does not want JDL to attend public events is because our message is simple and basic. And the public is receptive. The TDSB is promoting a form of gender apartheid by allowing radical Islam into the public school system. The Globe and Mail recently wrote, “Muslim girls who wish to take part must sit behind the boys, while girls who are menstruating must sit at the very back. While this is the custom at Friday prayers in mosques, the segregation of girls in a public space violates gender-equality norms that are at the heart of Canada’s institutions. Why shouldn’t girls be up front and centre? And why should classmates know when young girls of 13 are menstruating?”(From Saturday’s Globe and Mail Published Friday, Nov. 25, 2011 7:30PM EST) The JDL will continue to reach out to the public to stop Radical Islam from spreading hate in the public school system.

It’s time to reflect, eat some good food and support our friends. Many times, the mainstream media outlets refuse to post pro Israel information. And thank G-d we have many pro Israel bloggers on our side. And when they stand with us, we also must stand with them. It has been a very active year for JDL. Let us pull together
