Mass Prayer Against Expulsion at Foot of Holy Temple Mount

Jews across Israel are taking part in a mass prayer at Jerusalem's Western Wall, just below the Temple Mount, Wednesday to call on G-d to stop the expulsion of Jews from their homes in Gush Katif.

Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Haredi and National Religious rabbis are calling upon all Jews to take part in a mass prayer at the Western Wall Wednesday for the "nullification of the uprooting decree."

Former Ashkenazi and Sephardi Chief Rabbis Avraham Shapira and Mordechai Eliyahu, who have long led protests against the Gaza expulsion plan, will lead rabbis in a united call directed to the Heavens, rather than toward Israel's Knesset. Rabbis Shapira and Eliyahu will be joined by Shas Party Leader and former Sephardi Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, members of the Haredi-religious Council of Torah Sages, former MK Rabbi Menachem Porush and other prominent Hassidic rabbis.

It isn't perfect, but it's much better than nothing.

Harav Eliyahu and Harav Shapira have led a few mass prayer services in the past few months in which surprisingly no other 'heavyweights' showed.

This time, it was supposed to be a Haredi shindig (Rav Menachem Porush was one of the initiators), then Chabad came strongon and is sort of leading the organization of buses, after which the Haredis sort of lost interest (no mention of the evening in Yeted Neeman or Hamodia). Then surprisingly Harav Ovadia Yosef popped in and said that all his followers should show up, and then yesterday, Harav Eliyahu and Harav Shapira joined in as well.

Hopefully, until the cutain goes up, more 'heavyweights' will sign on and forget about who's leading what and who is will be on the podium.

Now's the time to unite! Haredim, Litaim, Hasidim, Sefaradim, National Religious all together will be a major event.

Hello nice blog site! Added it to my bookmarks for future reference.

I have a Ceiling Fan Globe site/blog. It pretty much covers Ceiling Fan Globe related stuff.

Come check mine out if you get time.

An appartment building is full of the following people: 3 Torah observant Yisra'elites, 28 secularists, 7 homosexuals, 5 terroists, and 23 zionists that do not follow Torah.

What would you say to a person who looks to it and says: "you see that building? That IS Yisra'el!"

you have to ask yourself -
Is it the land that is set-apart or holy?

no. If that were true, it was holy when the cananites lived there or now with the dome on it. It wouldnt have to be cleansed by a heifer.

ok, then because all people living in the appartment building are of hebrew decent genetically are they Yisra'el?

No. Flesh doesnt inherit anything except a 6 by 6 plot in the ground. Romans 10-12. And Goyeem become Yisra'el (Shemot 12:38, 12:49, Matt. 10:5, 15:25, Eph. 2:11-18, 1 corinth. 12:2, Acts 1:6) So the flesh profits nothing.

ok, so not the place nor the flesh then what makes ALL appartment tenets Yisra'el?

nothing. it's a lie. The person who just told you 'thats Yisra'el' is one of the homosexuals.

What do you think about Gaza, do you think other occupied areas should be given back?

Judah HaKohain said...

Yeshai:

Whoa, take a pill. What are you ranting on about?

As for Gaza and other "territories," it is Jewish land which belngs to the indigenous people. Arabs= Arabia. Jews=Judah ("west Bank"). Simple equation really.

Judah HaKohain said...

Also, beware your usage. "do you think other occupied areas should be given back."

To whom should we give the land "back to?" The Muslim invaders of the 11th Century? The Romans? The Egyptians (of which Yassir Araft Yi"S is one)? The Crusaders? There are no Palestinians as there is no Palestine. Most of these Arabs came well after the British Mandate from surrounding countries.

Im jewish myself- (not because i have permission from other to be, just like i dont need permission or approval to be human) I think there is a word for those who believe that any parts of the world are reserved for a certain ethnicity of people. But I forget . OH! I remember! RACIST! ;)

Judah HaKohain said...

Yishai:

Kind of like Pan-Arabism or "Dar Al-Islam," huh?

As a Jew, try going to Mecca sometime. You'd be arrested as no non-Muslim is allowed in their "holy" cities, yet a mosques sits undisturbed on our Temple Mount.

Interesting that Jews are not allowed to live in Gaza anymore so that it can be "Palestinian." All Arabo countries are "Judenreihn" much to their joy.

Judah HaKohain said...

An amazing scene! Thousands upon thousands calling upon the Creator to halt the removal of Jews from their home just because Arabs don't want them there.

whoa the occupied areas are exactly that, occupied by migrants fleeing europe in the early 20th century from persecution. The whole Balfour aggrement was drawn up by a Jew. Honestly, you guys really can't see it, your polices are like that of a pre mandela south africa. In addition, a member of your military shot dead a british peace protestor and got just 7 years! Good, fair justice?

Laughable! Jews are indigenous people to the Land. Arabs are not. Arafat himself was Egyptian. Let me ask you? Would you fault an Native American for wanting an Indian state on "American" soil where they could leave free? Don't call us Europeans for as you can see we have never been welcome there ever since the vile Romans forced us to leave our land.

Judah HaKohain said...

And let me add, the Afrikaaners were not native Africans. The Jews are native to the Middle East and Israel proper.

Yeshai said...

Archeology reveils that non-"jews" lived in palastine prior to jews living in Yerushalayim. You need to do a bit more research.

Judah HaKohain said...

Well, Archaeology IS a definite science. No errors there. I guess if a bunch of egg-head athiest academics says that the Torah is incorrect, it must be so.

Look, Yishai, there were people ruling Jerusalem before the Jews. They were caled Canaaniyes and they don't exist anymore.

Why is it so hard for you to accept that Jews have been in Israel for thousands of yeras before Arabs and Muslims? Millions of Christians accept it. Why can't you?

Yeshai said...

1. Im not a christian, orthodox, karaite, reform or conservative, or muslim. I am a shliakh of Yisra'el.

2. can you show me in Torah (in which I feel insulted that as an elder of yisra'el I need ask you, a goy, this question)where it declares regardless of WHAT you do, your genetic code allows you to stay in the camp of yisra'el? This is the same ol' I'm geneticly jewish so i have a ticket to ha-olam regardless if I was hitler's top general. RE-DIC-U-LOUS!!!

3. Following Torah and being Yisra'el is by belief, therfore ANYONE can be a part of Yisra'el. Shemot 12:49

4. zionists make Elah's word a lie by saying "israel is established by might and by power" (even man's power and military might - what a joke!) - when His word declares: "NOT by might, nor by power I will establish you , but by my ruach!"

Judah HaKohain said...

Yeshai is nothing but a Christian cult member. From his "religion's" web site: "Yeshua, is the anointed king of new covenant Isræl, our only rabbi, heavenly high priest."

Beware, ignore and don't engage.
