The following is a response to an invitation to an Israel Project event, co-sponsored by the American Israel Public Action Commitee [AIPAC]:
Dear Israel Project,
Please refrain from sending me anymore Israel Project or AIPAC information, newsletters, or invitations.
I'm already doing my part.
I live here.
Life is difficult here, even though I could never go back to North America. So if you or your organization would like to send me a donation, let me know. I'll send you my "snail-mail" address.
Otherwise, information regarding the self-hating Jews of AIPAC leadership* (May God help them), who are more concerned about what the goyim think than what HaQadosh Baruch Hu (The Holy One, Blessed Be He) thinks, and who support expelling Jews from their rightful homes, violating several Torah prohibitions, is simply NOT welcome in my inbox.
(*emphasis on the word "leadership")
From the Israel Project website:
"The Israel Project is a new national non-profit, non-partisan educational organization devoted to ensuring an accurate portrayal of Israel - a democracy where all citizens have freedom of speech, press, religion and a right to vote.
The Israel Project was founded by three American mothers who were concerned that Israel's image in the media could cause an increase in anti-Semitism at home and abroad."
I can appreciate three mothers want to do something to support Israel.
But, if the above is what they stand for, then they certainly do not stand for my conceptualization of Israel, ideal or otherwise. Furthermore, Jews do not have those rights mentioned, so such a portrayal of Israel would be inaccurate, to say the least.
Freedom Of Speech: Jews do not have freedom of speech. A man was just convicted and sentenced by the Israeli court for printing and distributing a T-Shirt with the words: "No Arabs, No Terror." A T-Shirt, for goodness sakes! Prime Minister Sharon has decided that anyone who expresses opposition to his policy of expelling Jews from their homes in Azza and the Northern Shomron [& other areas of Israel] will be dealt with. It is also beginning to be difficult to enter certain places wearing the color orange, as it is seen as the banner of the anti-disengagement camp.
Freedom Of The Press: Jews do not have freedom of the press. Just ask anyone who works for "Arutz 7." Their broadcasts are only available via Internet. The radio station was shut down, pursecuted while broacasting off-shore, "legalized" by the Kineset, and then delegalized anyway by the real power in this country: The courts.
Freedom Of Religion: Jews do not have freedom of religion. Well, actually, liberal Jews DO experience these freedoms. They can drive through religious neighvborhoods on Shabbat, traipse through religious, residential neighborhoods dressed in almost nothing, greatly offending the residents,...all in the name and interest of "demoncracy."
I'll some up Israel's so=called "democracy" by paraphrasing from George Orwell's Animal Farm: "All of us are equal, but some of us are more equal than others."
In addtion, if policies here do not change...fast, in about 70 years, Arabs will out number Jews within the confines of wherever you choose to draw the borders. Soon after that, Arabs will outnumber Jews in the Keneset....
Do I really have to spell the rest out for you?
The children or foreign workers are being granted residency status, additional goyim continue to flow in from the Ukraine by invitation of the Israeli government, and the Israeli Supreme Court recently decided to accept pseudo conversions for the purposes of citizenship.
My ideal state of Israel is one based on Torah, not on what the goyim think.
Without addressing these, issues, there will not be any Israel left, so you will no longer be able to defend its public image!
Now, about that donation....
P. S. I recommend you click on the links to the right, and study intently.
If your interested in "Israel's image," then I recommend that you see:
