Obama’s upcoming visit jeopardizes Israel. “Unilateral” expulsions, such as what occurred in August, 2005, to the 10,000 Jews of the flourishing 21 Gush Katif communities, may be repeated. According to the two Baracks–President Barack Obama and Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, a “timetable for the withdrawal of Jews from Judea and Samaria” is being demanded.
President Barack Obama demands the creation of a PA state, “and if Israel won’t give him something he can work with, then he’ll act on his own.” Obama’s actions and choices have shown that words such as “unshakable bond” are deceitful. The appointments of Hagel and Kerry and the nomination of Brennan should send a clear warning to Israel and diaspora Jews that Obama does not “have Israel’s back.”
Minister Barak threatens “unilateral steps” taken once again by the Israeli government.
This imperial president has no understanding of Israeli sovereignty and ignores past failed attempts to achieve peace by giving up land. Some Israelis in the government, as well, seem to be confused about their own identity.
The Gush Katif Museum dinner will be an opportunity to protest any surrender of Jewish land and the possible expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Jews from their homes and communities. The purpose of the museum is to preserve the story of the horrors of the expulsion from Gush Katif for the specific purpose of declaring “never again!” But, demolitions have happened since and threaten to continue. We must protest against any such actions and demonstrate solidarity on behalf of a whole Israel–Yisrael HaShleimah. A strong showing at the museum dinner will send a clear message to PM Netanyahu that Diaspora Jews and Christians will fight demolition decrees.
The dinner for the Gush Katif Museum based in Jerusalem is scheduled for this motzaei Shabbat (Saturday night), March 9. Reception at 8:00 p.m. at the Razag Ballroom, 739 East New York Avenue in Brooklyn. Valet parking. The featured speaker is Governor Mike Huckabee, who has personally toured the museum. Rivka Goldschmidt, a former resident of Gush Katif, will speak, as well.
