How can it be? 3 wonderful souls, dragged out of our reality and brutally killed. The pain, the anguish – how can their Mothers even begin to bear it? I don’t know, I just can’t fathom it. I don’t know these 3 young adults, but they fit into the same age group as my younger kids. It hits as hard as anything I can remember. I’m so sad, I’m so mad, I can’t contain all the emotions that are built up..
I hate to even talk about something else, but it is there – burning a hole inside of me. We put up with this idiotic policy from one government to the next. It is the reason we continue to lose our loved ones from incident to incident. Let’s be clear here: There is no opportunity for any kind of 2 state peace here. Zero chance. So why do we continue to play this game with the rest of the world? Why do we allow the leftists in our midst to have a voice that is magnitudes louder than their numbers in our society represent? Why do we put up with successive right wing governments that enact left wing policies? It is literally killing us.
A government is supposed to reflect the will of the people. When was the last time that happened? We continue to get the “wisdom” of Shimon Peres crammed down our collective throats. The first thing that Bibi does is give Livni the Ministry of Justice and the chief negotiator position? Why? Why would he do this and why would we put up with it? We are not going to be cowed into listening to the nations any longer. We are not going to give any credence to the leftist ideology any longer. It’s over, finally.
We have a way forward here. Annex all of Yehuda v’Shomron. ALL OF IT. The local Arabs that live there have 3 choices: Live with us in peace, move somewhere else or die defending your cause. There will be a period of violence, but what do you think our 3 sons just endured? What? We should continue to allow our Sons and Daughters to pay the price to salve our need to be one with the rest of the world? Just look at the results in the last year. Sleeping on the bus, going to a job interview, going home with a work colleague – any of these activities can end up with death. Ours. Never theirs. Let that sink in.
It is time to finish this charade. We allow the government to tell us that we cannot pray on Har Habayit. That we cannot even ascend it. Who’s in charge here, because they need to get fired – and now. If you don’t have the stones for the job, leave it or be shown the door.
I will be attending the funeral of the boys in my hometown of Modiin today, along with other members of my family and friends. I am grateful that the boys were able to realize the the mitzvah of living in Eretz Yisrael. I’m grateful for the boys families, who have shown so much strength throughout this ordeal. We are indebted to you forever for the sacrifice that was taken from you.
Things are not going to go back to “normal”. We refuse to be put back into the box that has been containing us for so long now. If this form of government doesn’t have the ability to do that which we want it to do, then it is time to replace this form of government.
Please God, give us the ability to discern your will and the strength to carry it out.
