350 Israeli Rabbis Make Election Website
Rabbinical Council for Peace:
Giving Land Is The Main Issue
From: Pikuach Nefesh - pikuachnefesh.net
March 9, 2015 Israeli elections are coming up soon-
Rabbinical Council for Peace (in Hebrew called: Pikuach Nefesh) has created a website to educate Israeli voters to lobby for Jewish priorities this election. Composed of over 350 rabbis, the Rabbinical Council for Peace, formed before the destruction of Gush Katif, has continually lobbied for a more peaceful solution to peace than giving land. RCP wants to educate the Israeli voter to vote for a safer more secure land of Israel. Speaking with a representative of RCP we were told: "People know the answer, but people are afraid to stand up for what their heart tells them is right- The very issue that Jewish Law finds wrong with giving land for peace. Giving land, any land in Israel puts Jews in danger- Not just in Israel, but around the world. Antisemitism is climbing at alarming rates- completely in response to Israel's weakness. We want people to vote with their heart and to know that on this matter, Jewish Law not just agrees with them, but demands that no Jew be silent on this issue." Israel isn't a big country. Formed in 1948 out of a former British colony the British conquered the area from the Turkish rulers who had held the land since 1516, under the first Ottoman sultan, Selim I. Selim I took over rulership from the Mamelukes and consolidated the Ottoman Empire with the Land of Israel in it. When the British left in 1948 and the dust had settled from the invading Arab armies, the borders left to the new leadership were a 12 mile wide strip up the coast of the Mediterranean that stretched for around 60 miles. From this was a thin 5 mile to 7 mile corridor connecting to the Jewish capital of Jerusalem.
Besides a billboard campaign of over 500 billboards on major roadways around Israel advertising the message: "Giving Land Means Death", RCP (Rabbinical Congress for Peace) came out with an educational website that reminds voters what has come of giving land, and how OSLO, Camp David and other Land Giving agreements are the exact opposite of peace.
