I saw some guy on the bus wearing a sweatshirt tonight...
(Guarding over our home - NRP)
Oh, wait a minute,...maybe the slogan meant metaphorically or spiritually.
I have personally seen the "home" you guard annually, which hosts the convention of a certain co-ed, "religious" youth group [which shall remain nameless], where the boys and girls do more than play guitar, and sing "Kum-ba-ya."
I have taught in the "religious" schools you are guarding over, where the students are taught to revere dead rasha'im (evil people).
I have heard your Members of Knesseth [MK] claim that democracy should determine land concessions (Sha'ul Yahalom*) and that rabbis don't really have any business meddling in the running of a government (Zevulun Orlev).
Just now I read that the chairman of your re-invented Jewish "Home" Party, Rabbi Daniel Hershkowitz, finally stopped evading the question as to how he stands on further territorial concessions and evictions of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria....
(IsraelNN.com) ...[Hershkowitz] also said that the party's Knesset members would enjoy freedom to vote according to their conscience on matters pertaining to the diplomatic process and that the question of territorial concessions is a 'pragmatic' one on which people have differing opinions.
"Pragmatic?" "Differing opinions?" Hasn't anyone in your party ever heard of something called halachah?
Is this what you call guarding over our home?
Well, then please stay very far away from mine.
Maybe what you meant was "guarding over OUR home," in other words Elqanah, Ofrah, Alon Shvut, Giv'at Shmu'el, Qiriyat Ata,...but not anyone else's. I suppose you expect that Hevron, Yitzhar, and K'far Tapu'ah will just have to deal with your "pragmatic" and "diplomatic," "differing opinions...."
The HaTikvah Party advertisements you were complaining about, are right on. The National Religious Party is nothing more than...
