T. Belman. When some Rabbis came out against renting to Arabs in certain neighborhoods, all hell broke loose. Cries of “racism” were aften repeated and even some Jews on the right felt uncomfortable with the stand of the Rabbis. We have all been brainwashed by liberalism which mandates the highest value as equality between Arabs and Jews, gays and straights, Islam and Judaism, threats and non-threats and men and women. So persaisive are these notions that they are rarely debated in society or the Knesset. And they are safeguarded by reducing free speech and by imposing a value of political correctness. It has progressed beyond personal rights to national rights. Sovereignty is under attack to enable world government. Any country that resists on both levels, the personal and the national gets shunned and condemned.
As this article points out, Jews simply want to protect their way of life, their families and their country. Also Israel wants to define itself by itself in opposition to the demands of the world. Israel has the right to be a Jewish state, a Zionist state, and a secure state.
We have the right to our own values and to set priorities among them. The world can butt out. The world may want to commit suicide by following their liberal values but we don’t.
“We Want to Take Bat Yam Back from the Arabs”
by David Lev, INN
The people of Bat Yam, adjacent to Tel Aviv, are not racists, nor are they Arab haters, says Asher Vodka, one of the organizers of a protest this week that raised eyes around the country; they are just sick and tired of being pushed around in their home towns. “And this is not a Bat Yam issue,” Vodka told Israel National News. “This is a problem all around the country.”
The “problem,” says Vodka, is one that nearly every Israeli is aware of, whether or not they wish to admit it to themselves and others: Call it the “over-confidence of Israel’s Arab population that does what it wants, when it wants, regardless of how it affects anyone, especially Jews,” says Vodka.
Vodka is not talking about the freedom Arabs have to enter Israeli cities and towns at will, to shop and do business – which, he says, they take full advantage of – but what they do with that freedom. It was for that reason, he says, that he and some friends organized a protest on Monday, which was attended by hundreds.
“There are times when we Jewish residents – especially the girls and women – dare not show our faces in certain parts of this city, because we know we are going to be attacked or accosted by Arabs,” says Vodka. On weekends, and especially on Muslim holidays, Vodka says that Arabs, from Yafo (Jaffa) and from villages in the Triangle area and Negev, visit Bat Yam, which has invested a great deal in its tourism infrastructure in recent years – and basically “take over the town. Often they will riot, getting drunk – something they would not even consider doing in their own villages – and fight, either among themselves or with Jews. Not too long ago, there was a major riot in a local shopping center, courtesy of drunken Arabs.”
Especially vulnerable are Jewish girls and women. “The Arabs accost them, trying to either seduce them, or in some cases forcing themselves on the girls. Some try to resist,” says Vodka, “and for their trouble they find themselves getting beaten up; we just had a case like that last week.” In other instances, Arabs will offer money and other “goodies” to girls as young as 14 and 15, trying to get them to follow them back to their villages – where they end up as virtual prisoners.” Israeli activists in organizations like Yad L’achim estimate that there are as many as 15,000 Jewish girls living in Arab villages, Vodka says. “They come from places like Bat Yam.”
Obviously, more education and action in the Jewish community is necessary in order to raise consciousness among Jews as to the dangers of getting involved in relationships with Arabs, Vodka says, “but they don’t belong here with us. The imam of Jabel Mukaber openly instructed Muslims to do whatever was necessary to capture and defile Jewish girls – as part of their war against Jews. We can’t just sit by and let them drive a wedge in our communities.”
The war is being conducted not just on the streets and among Jewish girls – but in the real estate market as well. Israeli media portrayed Monday’s protest as being aimed specifically at preventing Arabs from buying and renting homes in the community, and Vodka admits that this is a problem, especially in certain neighborhoods. “They come in with large amounts of money – money supplied to them by terrorist interests – and overpay, sometimes by 200 percent or 300 percent for houses, in order to push Jews out,” he says. But far worse is the virtual reign of terror imposed on Jewish residents by “visiting” Arabs, who have made life in Bat Yam hellish.
And it’s not just Bat Yam. “This is a national problem, and everyone knows it. Politicians criticize and condemn, but they all know that something must be done.” That includes the mayor of Bat Yam, Shlomi Lahayani. “He, like everyone else, knows that the king has no clothes, but is deathly afraid of the media.”
Vodka and his friends, however, are not. “We had hundreds of people at a protest on Monday here in Bat Yam, but we want to expand this to other cities.” Vodka, along with some friends, organized the protest now, “because we felt the time was right, and we plan on making this into a national movement. We want to prevent Bat Yam from turning into a Yafo or Akko [near Haifa], where in some neighborhoods Jews walk the streets at their own risk. And we want to turn back the tide, and reclaim our homeland, wherever we can.”
