Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah. (Al-Manar)

Hezbollah’s leader Nasrallah issued more warnings to Israel, calling on Jews to return to Europe before the next war.

Secretary General of the Hezbollah terror group, Hassan Nasrallah, issued an ominous threat to Israelis urging them to return to the countries “from where they had come,” before it becomes too dangerous for them in “Palestine.”

In a televised address from his bunker on Sunday during a ceremony held to mark the “Ashura,” a Shia Muslim holiday, Nasrallah called on “the Zionist settlers, especially the Jews,” to leave “the occupied Palestinian territories” before Israel is no longer safe for them.

Rabi Marc Angel – Happiness: Thoughts for Succoth Institute for Jewish Ideas and Ideals

By: Rabbi Marc D. Angel
In: https://www.jewishideas.org/happiness-thoughts-succoth

The Torah informs us that the festival of Succoth commemorates God’s providence over the Israelites during their years of wandering in the wilderness. An old question is: why was this holiday scheduled to begin specifically on the 15th day of Tishri? The dates for Pessah (15 Nissan) and for Shavuoth (6 Sivan) are clearly linked to historical events—the day of the Exodus and the day of the Revelation at Mount Sinai. But the wandering in the wilderness was ongoing for 40 years, with no particular historic connection to Tishri 15?

Rabbi Haim David Halevy, in his Torat Hayyim al ha-Moadim, suggests that the Tishri 15 date was specified by the Almighty so as to be parallel to the Nissan 15 date of Pessah. Since the Exodus from Egypt is so central to Jewish thought and observance, Pessah and Succoth were set exactly six months apart, to the day, in order to ensure that we experience the power of the Exodus on a regular basis every six months.

The great 18th century sage, Rabbi Hayyim Yosef David Azulai (known popularly as the Hidah), offers a different explanation in his Midbar Kedeimot. He notes that the lives of our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob overlapped for fifteen years. When Abraham died, his grandson Jacob was 15 years old. In rabbinic tradition Abraham is identified with Pessah, Isaac with Shavuoth, and Jacob with Succoth. (See Tur O.H. 417). Because of the merit of these extraordinary 15 years, the holy days of Pessah and Succoth were both set for the 15th of the month.

The Hidah is alluding to something deeper than the clever confluence of numbers. He suggests that the 15 years of shared lifetime among Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were a period of extreme happiness for the world. These three luminaries literally changed the course of history and brought humanity to a better understanding of the One God. Succoth, which is known in our tradition as the season of our happiness (zeman simhateinu), commemorates the extraordinary happiness and enlightenment that emerged at the founding of our nation.

Hezbollah chief urges Jews to ‘flee Palestine’ while they can

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah says Israeli government is gunning for war, warns Kurdish independence referendum in Iraq will divide the region • “The Jews are being used,” he says • Turkish president says Kurds will pay a price for independence vote.

The leader of Lebanese militant group Hezbollah said on Sunday that the Israeli government was pushing the region into war in Syria, Lebanon and in the Gaza Strip.

On Sunday, in a speech to followers on the occasion of Ashura, when Shiite Muslims commemorate the slaying of the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah remarked that the Israeli government did not have a “correct assessment of where this war will lead if they ignite it.”

Directly addressing “the Israelis and Jews across the world,” Nasrallah added that “we in the resistance have said from the beginning that our war is against the Zionists who occupy Palestinian land, not against the Jews.”

“The Jews who came from all over the world need to know that they are being used as fuel for a regional war and an American plot targeting the peoples of the region,” Nasrallah continued.

Addressing “religious sages” among the Jews, he said: “The government of Israel, headed by [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, is leading you toward ruin and destruction because he is looking for war.”

“If Netanyahu launches a war,” he warned, “no part of occupied Palestine will be safe.”

“Israel has no qualms about issuing threats to Lebanon, and it continues its aggressive approach in Syria under the guise of preventing the resistance from developing new military capabilities,” he said. “Israel is using every possible excuse to drag the region into war. This war will be at your expense and you will be the ones to pay the price.”

In conclusion, Nasrallah called on “all Jews to disconnect their values from those of the Zionists, who are on a path toward certain devastation. I call on [the Jews] to leave the territories of Palestine and return to the countries they came from. If Netanyahu starts a war in the region, they will not have time to flee Palestine.”

Sunday’s speech came one day after Nasrallah warned that a recent Iraqi Kurdish independence vote marked the first step toward the division of the Middle East, arguing that it would lead to “internal wars” and must be opposed.

In a separate speech, also via satellite, Nasrallah labeled the events in northern Iraq, where Kurds overwhelmingly voted for independence last Monday, as a threat to Turkey, Syria and Iran, all of which have large Kurdish minorities, and to the entire region.

Iran, Turkey and Syria have rejected the results of the largely symbolic referendum.

Nasrallah warned that the divisions sparked by the vote would also reach other countries in the region including Saudi Arabia, a country that he harshly criticized in his speech.

“The responsibility of the Kurds, Iraqi people and concerned countries … is to stand against the beginning of divisions,” Nasrallah said.

“It will open the door to partition, partition, partition,” he said, adding that “partition means taking the region to internal wars whose end and time frame is known only to God.”

Nasrallah charged Israel with supporting Kurdish statehood and described the referendum as part of a U.S.-Israeli plot to carve up the region.

The United States came out in opposition to the vote, along with major European states and neighboring countries Turkey and Iran. The government of Syria, where Kurdish groups have established autonomous regions, also opposed the referendum.

Hezbollah fighters are currently fighting along with other Iran-backed militias and the Syrian army against ISIS fighters in eastern Syria.

“[ISIS] is at its end. It is a matter of time in Iraq and Syria,” Nasrallah said.

Turkey: Kurds will pay the price for independence vote

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued threats on Saturday, saying that Iraqi Kurdish authorities would pay the price for the independence referendum.

“They are not forming an independent state, they are opening a wound in the region to twist the knife in,” Erdogan told members of his ruling Justice and Development Party in the eastern Turkish city of Erzurum.

Erdogan has built strong commercial ties with Kurdish authorities in northern Iraq, which pump hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil daily through Turkey for export to world markets.

“We don’t regret what we did in the past. But since the conditions are changed and the Kurdish Regional Government, to which we provided all support, took steps against us, it would pay the price,” he said.

Turkey has repeatedly threatened to impose economic sanctions, effectively cutting their main access to international markets, and has held joint military exercises with Iraqi troops on the border.

However, after Erdogan said that Iraqi Kurds would go hungry if Ankara halted the cross-border flow of trucks and oil, it has said that any measures it took would not target civilians and instead focus on those who organized the referendum.

Iraq’s Defense Ministry said on Friday it plans to take control of the borders of the autonomous Kurdistan region in coordination with Iran and Turkey.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, speaking on Saturday, did not refer specifically to those plans, but said Ankara would no longer deal with Kurdish authorities in Erbil.

“From now on, our relationships with the region will be conducted with the central government, Baghdad,” he said. “As Iran, Iraq and Turkey, we work to ensure the games being played in the region will fail.”

How Mark Twain’s Israel Tour 150 Years Ago Gave Rise to Fulfillment of Jeremiah’s Prophecy

“This whole land shall be a desolate ruin. And those nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.” 
Jeremiah 25:11 (The Israel Bible™)

When Mark Twain visited Palestine in 1867, the land was empty and desolate. (Old City of Jerusalem in the 19th century)

On his landmark visit to Israel 150 years ago, American literary giant Mark Twain witnessed what he did not then know was the start of the prophetic return of the Jewish people to the land.  The renowned travel book that became the foundation for his success, Innocents Abroad, painted a picture of a holy land whose desolation would serve as the beginning point of prophecy brought to life.

Tarbut Chueta em Barcelona. À esquerda o escritor Miquel Segura Aguiló, ao centro, o Presidente da AAPI e à direita, o primeiro Rabino Chueta da actualidade Nissán ben Avraham (Nicolao Aguiló).

Un estudio realizado por la Universidad de Islas Baleares hace unos años indicaba que un 30% de los entrevistados nunca se casaría con un chueta mientras que un 5% respondió que nunca tendría un amigo chueta. Ante esta información, ¿quiénes son los chuetas? Los chuetas son un grupo de conversos descendientes de los judíos catalanes que escaparon del Pogromo de Barcelona en 1391 y aquellos expulsados de la península ibérica en 1492 los cuales se establecieron posteriormente en las Islas Baleares. Sin embargo, los prejuicios sociales y la presión a los que estos judíos sufrieron los llevó a convertirse al cristianismo y a practicar el judaísmo en secreto. De hecho, esta comunidad seguía realizando prácticas judías como el Shabbat y consumían comida kosher. Aunque la realidad es que la mayoría de los descendientes de estos conversos terminaría siendo católicos devotos y ya para el siglo 19 casi todos en su totalidad, según estimaciones, solo practicaban el cristianismo.

Muitos parabéns! Elvas já tem uma Casa de História dos Judeus de Elvas

Visita do Presidente da AAPI ao local durante as obras.

Visão parcial do espaço interno da Casa da História dos Judeus de Elvas.

Foi inaugurada, no passado dia 2 de Setembro, a Casa da História dos Judeus de Évora, acto de grande justiça e de grande impacto no potencial turístico e cultural do Município de Elvas. Por este facto saudamos e damos efusivamente os parabéns à Câmara Municipal de Elvas, na pessoa do seu Presidente, Dr. Nuno Mocinha, assim como a todos quantos participaram neste projecto e tornaram possível a recuperação do espaço para que nele seja instalada a Casa da História dos Judeus de Elvas, nomeadamente, o dr. Rui Jesuíno e a drª. Tânia Rijo.

Descerramento da Lápide Inaugural da Casa da História dos Judeus de Elvas. Da esquerda para a direita, o Presidente da Câmara Municipal de Elvas, Dr. Nuno Mocinha, o Presidente da Comunidade Israelita de Lisboa, dr. Gabriel Steinhardt e o Presidente da Associação de Amizade Portugal/Israel, Arqº António Caria Mendes.

A inauguração do espaço revestiu-se de grande dignidade e foi acompanhada por um grande número de elvenses. Estimamos que, no mínimo, tenham estado presentes 250 munícipes.

A lápide comemorativa foi descerrada, pelo Presidente do Município, dr. Nuno Mocinha, que convidou o Presidente da Comunidade Israelita de Lisboa e o Presidente da Associação de Amizade Portugal/Israel, para que o acompanhassem naquele acto.

Queremos, ainda, felicitar a Câmara de Elvas por ter atribuído um nome tão expressivo ao espaço agora inaugurado: Casa da História dos Judeus de Elvas. Numa atitude histórica louvável, a Autarquia resolveu adoptar esta designação porque, embora o espaço em questão possa ter sido uma das ou a Sinagoga de Elvas, no período medieval, nada existe que, de forma taxativa, o prove. Assim, ao contrário do que acontece em muitos lugares onde se pretendem ver Sinagogas em edifícios com cantareiras  embutidas na parede, o Município pretendeu, num exemplo de honestidade histórica inaudito, não designar como Sinagoga um espaço cuja funcionalidade no final da Idade Média é, por agora, desconhecido. A AAPI- Associação de Amizade Portugal/Israel não pode deixar de louvar e apoiar com todo o empenho esta atitude que honra, de sobremaneira, o Município.

Azulejos da fachada da Casa da História dos Judeus de Elvas. Foi frequente, após o Decreto de Muge de D. Manuel, transformar muitas das Sinagogas então existentes em açougues, como forma de humilhação dos judeus. O cavaleiro do painel superior será, porventura, D. Sancho II que atribuiu o Primeiro Foral a Elvas.

Após a inauguração do espaço, o edifício irá manter-se encerrado durante o período de instalação do núcleo museológico, após o que se tornará um local de visita obrigatória para todos quantos se interessem pela história de Portugal e dos Judeus na Península Ibérica.

Dangerous Advice Your Rabbi Might Give You Before Rosh Hashanah – How to search through your past without falling into it

By Tzvi Freeman
In: http://www.chabad.org/holidays/JewishNewYear/template_cdo/aid/3770514/jewish/Dangerous-Advice-Your-Rabbi-Might-Give-You-Before-Rosh-Hashanah.htm#utm_medium=email&utm_source=1_chabad.org_magazine_en&utm_campaign=en&utm_content=content

Proceed With Caution

There’s a lot of bad advice going around this time of year. Dangerous advice. The Internet is full of it. So is your synagogue. Maybe even your favorite rabbi.

Look, they mean well. But they’re often completely unaware of the hazards involved. Which makes their advice an even greater threat to your mental and spiritual health.

“Days of Judgment are upon us,” they tell you. “Rosh HashanahYom Kippur. It’s time to take an account of all you’ve done wrong in the past year and resolve never to return to your wayward deeds.”


Absolutely true. Absolutely crucial. And equally dangerous.

SuchWithout serious precautions, this inventory-taking can be downright toxic. advice works wonders for the spiritually advanced. But for the rest of us, without serious precautions, this inventory-taking can be downright toxic. Here’s why:

  1. Dwelling on the moral misdemeanors of your past and the brute instincts from which they emerged is guaranteed to lead to depression. Now get this, and get it straight and clear: There’s sin, there’s evil, there’s hell, and then there’s depression. At least hell gets you somewhere.
  2. Contemplating how and why you chose to act out those urges, you will re-experience the thrill and pleasure you drew from them. Which just makes it all the more likely that you’ll do more of the same.
  3. Worse yet: You might take this life-review to heart. Then you’ll say, “Boy, was I rotten! Boy, was I nasty! I guess I’m just a real rotten, nasty guy and always will be”

That last one is the real killer. Because it defeats your original purpose in engaging in this self-review in the first place. If you’re making this review, it’s because you already regret your past and want to leave it behind. You want the coming year to be a year of growth and blossoming of all your spiritual potential.

Just by starting that journey, you’re forgiven already. He’s a forgiving G‑d. All it takes is a moment of regret to be forgiven.

But you’re looking for more than forgiveness. The point of this review is not the past, not the present, but the future. You need to grow out of your past. You need to change. Inner change.

And here you’re sabotaging all of that. Because the key to inner change is to change who you think you are. But if you think you’re a louse, you will be a louse.

If you think you’re a louse, you will say, “Why would a great, perfect G‑d pay attention to the prayers of a louse like me? Why would He want my mitzvahs? Why would He want anything to do with me?”

“Serve G‑d with joy.”1 It’s not going to work otherwise.2 Yes, there was a time when people could handle a good portion of bitter herbs and still stay joyful. But, as the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson of righteous memory put it,Today, we just don’t have the strength to deal with bitterness. today, we just don’t have the strength to deal with bitterness. We need inspiration, motivation and celebration. Bitterness still has its place, but only once you’ve fully revved up the engine of joy.3

In short, your yearly inventory is likely to be not only counterproductive, but a plan for disaster. Unless…

Search and Rescue

Unless you know what you are looking for. And what you are looking for is definitely not your sins. You’ll find those—like you’ll find clots of hairy muck while clearing clogged pipes. But they’re not the object of your search. You’ll only find those so you can chuck them out—immediately.

You are looking for yourself. Your true self. And you can only find that by looking back there, taking a road trip though all the inner places where your true self was lost.

InCall it a cognitive reframing of your past self, so that you can move forward. the lingo of psychology, you’re doing a cognitive reframing of your past self, so that you can move forward.

“And you will search for G‑d, your G‑d, from there, and you will find Him, because you will seek Him with all your heart and all your soul.”4

That’s the first mention of teshuvah in the Torah. Teshuvah is too often translated as repentance. That’s wrong. Repentance means you’re bad and now you’ve resolved to be good. Teshuvah means returning. Returning to the true, pure self that never changes. Because it is a breath of G‑d who does not change.

Search back there, through the mud and the murk of your past. Search past the deeds and the words. Those are but symptoms. You don’t heal by treating symptoms.

Search back there, through the blood-boiled chambers of your heart, past the callous egotism that allowed those things, past the fool who allowed himself to believe he was G‑d and therefore could do whatever he pleased and trample over whoever got in the way, past the hard rock walls of a heart that just didn’t care.

Search there with all the faith of your heart and soul, saying, “Deep inside here, I know I will find a pure soul. I know that when I did those things, when I acted the way I did, that pure soul was screaming bloody murder. I heard its voice, but I didn’t listen. Instead, I heard the voice of a beast, and I let myself believe that was me.”

“But I am not a beast. I am not a louse. I am an innocent child. I am a spark of the divine. And I will find that pure soul there within that darkness and I will rescue it from there.”

Faith In Yourself

Only once you have faith in yourself can you see yourself objectively. You can admit to your faults, because they are not you.

Only once you have faith in who you really are can you understand why these things don’t suit you. Like poor choices from a wild shopping spree, shoes that hurt your feet, pants that never fit, gaudy jewelry and cheap accessories, they just have to be chucked so you can move on in life.

Searching for yourself is a journey that takes far more faith than any pilgrimage. Just as you have faith in a G‑d you cannot see, so you must have faith in your own soul whose voice you cannot hear.

Because G‑d has faith in that soul. G‑d has faith in you. Faith you cannot fathom.

David, sweet singer of Israel, sang to G‑d: “On Your behalf, my heart says to me, ‘Seek my innermost!’ G‑d, I seek Your innermost.”5 For an entire month before Rosh Hashanah and until Hoshana Rabbah, we repeat those words twice a day in our prayers.

BecauseAt this time of year, the innermost of your heart is calling, saying, “Check me out. I am who you really are.” that’s what your heart is doing during those days. It’s beckoning to you, “Check me out. Check me out deeply. Beneath all the schmutz, I am dark but beautiful. I am who you really are, and can truly be.”

Search there, rescue yourself from there, and you will be that.

And you will be surprised. Because there you will find that G‑d Himself was always breathing within you.

Lauder on Wednesday thanked the German government for its long-awaited tribute to the 11 Israeli sportsmen and German policeman murdered by Palestinian terrorists in the Olympic Village during the 1972 Munich games, and said: “Today we mark not just a tragedy, but a terrible wrong that took place here 45 years ago. Let me be clear from the start. This monument should not have taken 45 years to build.” Continue a ler (Continue reading)→

NEW YORK – World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder on Tuesday welcomed the US State Department’s announcement that it would appoint a Special Envoy for the Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, calling it a “crucial move” in a time of growing anti-Semitism.

“On behalf of the World Jewish Congress, I commend the US administration for its encouraging decision to prioritize the appointment of a Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism.

“America’s Jewish community is undoubtedly among the safest in the world, but the demonstrations of blatant anti-Semitism, bigotry and racism that we have seen of late make the importance of such an envoy ever clear.

“When Jews are targeted for being Jewish, it is a problem not just for the Jewish community, but for America as a whole. It is imperative that all US citizens work together to fight all forms of hatred when they rear their ugly heads.”

La delegación del Ministerio de Defensa en Estados Unidos completó la adquisición de dos escuadrones completos (50 aviones) para la Fuerza Aérea Israelí la semana pasada al comprar 17 aviones F-35 “Adir” adicionales …

El Consejo de Seguridad aprobó la adquisición de 17 aviones adicionales, la orden de compra fue firmada por el General de División Udi Adam, Director General del Ministerio de Defensa. La entrega se completará en diciembre de 2024.

El ministro de Defensa, Avigdor Liberman, dio la bienvenida al cierre de la operación: “La compra de los 17 F-35 adicionales es una adquisición importante y estratégica para la Fuerza Aérea, que será capaz de afrontar los muchos desafíos de seguridad que enfrenta el Estado de Israel no sólo en términos de protección y seguridad de los ciudadanos israelíes a lo largo de las fronteras, sino también frente a los peligros lejanos que nos amenazan. La firma de esta transacción es una prueba más de la profundidad de nuestra relación con nuestro gran amigo los Estados Unidos “.

En total, el Ministerio de Defensa adquirió 50 aviones F-35 “Adir”. Cinco aviones ya están en Israel y en 2021, se entregarán 33 aviones adicionales. El F-35 se fabrica en dos modelos: modelo A (despegue y aterrizaje regulares), modelo B (despegue corto y aterrizaje vertical).

Rabi Eli Rosenfeld – Parashat “Balak” – Casa Chabad de Portugal

Balak

Na Parsha desta semana, Balaque, o Rei de Moabe, ordena ao profeta Bilam que amaldiçoe o Povo Judeu.

Motivada pelo medo e pelo ciúme, a missão está destinada ao fracasso. Em vez de maldições, Bilam abençoa o Povo Judeu com bênçãos bonitas e poderosas.

Uma parte curiosa da história ocorre na jornada de Bilam quando ele se aproximava do acampamento do Povo Judeu. D-us tinha-lhe dito “para não amaldiçoar as pessoas porque elas são abençoadas”. No entanto, Bilam não cede e continua em frente.

Acorda no início da manhã e sela o seu burro. É aí que as coisas começam a ficar complicadas. O burro vê um anjo impedindo o caminho à frente, Bilam, por seu lado, não vê nada. Bilam fica furioso com o burro por continuamente de desviar da estrada e ataca o burro com raiva.

É aqui que acontece algo incrível. O versículo diz-nos que “D-us abre a boca do burro e o burro fala com Bilam: O que eu lhe fiz para você me atingir? ” (Bamidbar 22:28).

O Rabino Isaque Caro, no seu comentário Toldot Yitschak, imediatamente questiona a necessidade deste fenômeno único. “Por que é que D-us empregaria uma ruptura tão extraordinária com o comportamento natural para transmitir uma mensagem tão simples? Não seria mais apropriado um anjo repreender Bilam? Porque a necessidade de uma ocorrência tão milagrosa neste contexto e neste momento?

A explicação do Rabino Caro é curta e direta. Usando uma analogia simples ele ilustra-nos porque é que D-us queria que fosse especificamente o burro a fazer a conversar. Na construção, diz-nos ele, é muito mais fácil demolir e destruir, para então construir com êxito. Quem é capaz de construir algo único e criativo, pode certamente desmontar e destruir.

Ao permitir que o burro fale, D-us estava a querer fazer constatções fortes. Aquele que tem o poder de ter uma conversa através do burro, uma tarefa obviamente claramente mais difícil, pode definitivamente silenciar as palavras de negatividade e ciúme.

Shababt Shalom!

Rabino Eli Rosenfeld

A história do Judaísmo em Portugal é uma fina tapeçaria rica em desafios e sucessos ao longo de tempos imemoriais. As terras portuguesas produziram e acolheram alguns dos nossos maiores Rabinos e líderes. Desde o estadista, líder, e sábio, Rabino Dom Yitzchak Abarbanel até ao autor do Shulchan Aruch, o Rabino Yosef Karo no século dezasseis até mais recentemente ao tempo que passou em Lisboa em 1941 o Grande Rabino de Lubavitch, o solo Portugal foi testemunha de importantes contribuições para o reforço das comunidades Judaicas e da sua compreensão e aderência à Torah.
É em reconhecimento da natureza imorredoira destas contribuições e em honra de todos os Judeus que ao longo de tempos de glória e deescuridão residiram em Portugal, que estes comentários da autoria dos grandes Rabinos de Portugal vos são aqui apresentados – aqui em Portugal.
Um agradecimento especial ao Rabino Shlomo Pereira pela tradução deste texto para português.

Rabino Marc D Angel – Qual direção?: Reflexões da Parashá Chukat 5777 – Institute for Jewish Ideas and Ideals

Na Parasha desta semana lemos sobre a queixa dos israelitas da falta de água, sobre as instruções que D-s dá a Moshe para falar com a rocha, sobre Moshe golpeando a rocha para produzir água, de D-s informando a Moshe que ele não teria permissão para entrar na Terra Prometida. Moshe errou. Ele e Aarão foram instruidos por D-s: “Porquanto não crerem em Mim para me santificar aos olhos dos filhos de Israel, não trouxerás esta assembléia para a terra que eu lhes dei”. (Bemidbar 20:12).

Ao ouvir esta notícia, Moshe deve ter se sentido devastado. Depois de tantos anos de serviço dedicado, agora lhe foi dito que não teria permissão para terminar sua missão.

Como a Torá descreve a reação de Moshe ao decreto de D-s? Lemos algo sobre Moshe pedindo perdão? Ele cumprio pena pela sua transgressão? Vemos Moshe chorando, suplicando, rezando, pedindo outra chance?

Não, nenhum dos itens acima. Continue a ler (Continue reading)→

Rabbi Marc Angel – Which Direction? Thoughts for Parashat Hukkat – Institute for Jewish Ideas and Ideals

In this week’s Parasha, we read of the Israelites’ complaint of lack of water; of God’s instruction to Moses to speak to the rock; of Moses striking the rock to bring forth water; of God informing Moses that he would not be allowed to enter the Promised Land.  Moses had erred; he and Aaron were told by God: “Because you did not believe in Me to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them” (Bemidbar 20:12).

Cuando el temor ya no está

Si les preguntan a los palestinos tanto de Gaza como de la Margen Oriental quién es responsable de sus sufrimientos, la mayoría, probablemente, dirá que es Israel. ¿Pero qué dirían si estuvieran seguros en el extranjero sin necesidad de seguir temiendo a sus gobiernos? Esa no es una pregunta que reporteros, diplomáticos u organizaciones no gubernamentales se molestan usualmente en formular. Ahora tenemos una respuesta para ello, al menos con respecto a los palestinos que huyeron de Gaza. Huyeron no por algo que hizo Israel, sino por las persecuciones del gobierno de Hamas.

¡El Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Madrid condena el boicot a Israel!

In: http://a-com.es/tribunal-superior-justicia-madrid-condena-boicot-israel/


El miércoles pasado el Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Madrid rechazó en términos muy claros el recurso presentado por el Ayuntamiento de Rivas-Vaciamadrid contra sentencia que anula y deja sin efecto el boicot contra Israel y las empresas o individuos que no se opongan al Estado Judío.


El Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Madrid reafirma la decisión del Juzgado número 4 de Madrid, que anuló en el mes de enero los acuerdos de boicot a Israel tras recurso presentado por ACOM. El mandato judicial anulaba las disposiciones de boicot del Ayuntamiento, ya que su aplicación determinaría un veto real a las organizaciones, empresas y organismos de un país determinado. Con la reciente sentencia se reafirma el carácter discriminatorio, sesgado y decididamente hostil contra Israel, sus naturales y todo aquel que simpatice con el país hebreo.
