Letter to the Israeli Knesset


We applaud your decision to legalize Havat Gilad and other such communities. We also join you in the condemnation of yet another brutal terrorist murder, that of Rabbi Itamar Ben Gal.

HOWEVER another tragedy is about to occur – this time at the hands of the Israeli government. I am referring to the planned demolition of 16 homes in Netiv Avot. You know the details of the dispute so there is no need for me to repeat them. This puts a scar of shame on the face of Israel. We either embrace all our brethren in the Jewish homeland, or we have made a mockery of Israel’s purpose. The Supreme Court decision is biased, ignorant, unwarranted, and cruel. It must be overruled.
PLEASE do everything in your power to avert the severe decree.
