On June 14, 2009, when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, without Knesset or public debate, endorsed the creation of an independent and sovereign state in Judea and Samaria, this should have been a wake-up call. The people of Israel should have understand that their honey-tongued leader is psychologically prepared to yield Jerusalem to their cruelest enemies—as Maimonides described the descendants of Ishmael in his “Epistle to Yemen.”
Who above all should have responded to that wake-up call? Surely no other than God-fearing Jews, those who best know that the fate of Israel—indeed, of world Jewry—is inextricably linked to Jerusalem. I will therefore be asked: “What should God-fearing Jews do besides pray, learn Torah, and do mitzvoth?”
Organize to sanctify God’s Name, which a timid a prime minister is prepared to desecrate. In every town and village, wherever there is a minyan of God-fearing Jews, organize! Organize a network of cells across the country connected by Internet and warn the people that we are in grave danger—and not merely from Iran but from our own Government. Indeed, Ahmadinejad’s threat to wipe Israel off the map is the physical manifestation of the spiritual holocaust that will follow if the Government yields Jerusalem, the heart and soul of the Jewish people, to Islam.
