Last Tuesday night, Rav Chaim Zev Malinowitz gave a Yom Kippur Kattan Rosh Chodesh Menachem Av Drasha which an attendee was kind enough to summarize and send around by email.

Flash: Abe Foxman’s Deplorable, Despicable Interview on Israel’s TV Channel 11 News…

This author tries not to comment or deal on this blog with issues and news not in some way related to or a consequence of last August’s expulsions of Jews from Gush Katif and the Shomron.

This author was dead tired on Friday night after Shabbos Dinner and visiting with friends across the street. Soo dead tired in fact, that a siddur was left at the friend’s home which was seen as gone missing on Shabbos morning.

And so, Motsei Shabbos, this author went back to the friend’s house to retrieve the siddur. Upon arriving to retrieve the siddur, he viewed an interview with ADL’s head Abe Foxman on Israel’s channel 11 news. [...]  Click here to read more.

Olmert Regime: Convergence Agenda Takes Priority Over National Security, Over Fully Exploiting IDF Assets to Win 3 Front War…

Column One: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, By Caroline Glick

Excerpts;

In his address to the Knesset last week, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert framed Israel’s war in Lebanon as a war for “our right to be normal.” His emphasis on our right to drink coffee led many to wonder if he understands the immensity of the threat we face as he curries favor with Israel’s aging baby boomers.

As polls of the Arab and Muslim world’s opinion of Israel make clear, The Jerusalem Post’s Khaled Abu Toameh probably understated the magnitude of their desire to destroy Israel when he wrote on Thursday: “Throughout the Arab and Islamic world, hatred of Israel is so immense today that, if given the chance, tens of thousands of women and men would join Hamas and Hizbullah almost immediately.” [...]  Click here to read more.

Lebanese War Widow: To be Victimized by Olmert’s “Realignment”??

Lebanese War Widow’s Home in Danger by Hillel Fendel

Excerpts;

IDF officers arrived at the home of Maj. Ro’i Klein this week to inform his widow he had fallen in battle. In a few months, they are liable to return – to remove her from her home and destroy it.

The reason: She lives in a neighborhood in Eli, in Samaria (Yesha), that has been targeted by Peace Now – the same radical left-wing group that brought about the destruction of nine Jewish homes in Amona earlier this year. [...]  Click here to read more.

Brazen and Hateful Olmert to GK Refugees: At Least You’re Not Dead; “Promising to Evacuate More communities.”

Olmert to Katif: At Least You’re Not Dead, by Hillel Fendel

Excerpts;

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert met with former Gush Katif residents and said that in light of the war, they have nothing to complain about. He also promised to “evacuate” more Jewish towns.

Olmert visited Nitzan, home to the largest concentration of people who used to live in Gush Katif, Gaza. In his Monday visit to the site of pre-fab homes called caravillas – some of its residents call it a “refugee camp” – Olmert met with representatives of several former Gush Katif communities. “I just came from speaking with the parents of the pilot who was killed in the Israel Air Force helicopter crash a few days ago. Their son we sent not [on a mission of ] settlement, and neither did he come back with compensation; he came back in a coffin!” [...]  Click here to read more.

Olmert’s Malicious and False Propaganda Regarding Gush Katif Refugee Compensation …

The topic of the Gush Katif Refugees, why they fought to the end by all means short of armed confrontation against expulsion; why they, and many of us, begged, cried and wailed against it may seem redundant to some, but it is very much in need of repeating in light of the continuing campaign of systematic propaganda and dehumanization conducted against them by the regime to this day.

This continuing campaign of malicious and false propaganda is exemplified by Ehud Olmert’s recent deliberate blantantly false and bogus assertion, as reported in the Jerusalem Post, that “80 percent of the evacuees who asked for compensation have received it, at an average of NIS 1.4 million per family.” [...]  Click here to read more.
