New. Watch me in HEBREW:

by Barry Chamish

I am a proud Conservative Jew who has stood up for the Orthodox for fifteen years, mostly because their Jewish oppressors, or the leaders of Israel, were much, much worse and they were far more moral than their enemies were. But how can I defend the Orthodox any more when they have become intellectually irrational, no, just plain wacky?
Look what happened in Jerusalem last week. Baruch Marzel and Itamar Ben Gvir, led a march of a couple of dozen followers in the Silwan neighborhood of East Jerusalem. Three hundred policeman accompanied them, and when riots broke out, seven were hospitalized along with a few Arab protesters. Here is the Marzel/Ben Gvir reaction:

"Nationalist activists Baruch Marzel and Itamar Ben-Gvir proclaimed at the end of their hour-long march in the Silwan neighborhood of Jerusalem Sunday, “We have made it clear today who has sovereignty over Jerusalem.”

Three hundred Jews lived in Silwan in an area named after convicted spy Jonathan Pollard. Their contention was that if Arabs can live in Jewish neighborhoods in Israel, then it's only fair that Jews can live in Arab neighborhoods. A logical and right argument. They vigorously opposed the march, and how right they were. Here is the result the next day:

12:12 Tensions high as Jerusalem municipality inspectors measure Beit Yehonathan in Silwan for eviction (Guysen.International.News)
Jerusalem municipal inspectors accompanied by security forces are taking measurements in Beit Yehonatan in east Jerusalem's Silwan neighborhood. The building's residents were told the inspectors were setting the ground for eviction and enclosure orders.

Once again the Orthodox were bitten in the neck by Marzel/Ben Gvir. After fifteen years of these cretins defending government crimes, of appearing to be on their side, but of clearly pushing anti-Orthodox agendas, you'd think the Orthodox would understand these "radical" leaders were given to them by the government. They have shown their ugly faces by creating committees to liberate the likes of Yigal Amir and Baruch Goldstein as justified murderers, when their crimes were created by the government and they were deliberately part of the coverup.
The ugliest example of the use Marzel/Ben Gvir was in the expulsion of Jews from Gush Katif. Ben Gvir showed up at the headquarters of the demonstrators, was arrested, while his gang hung a poster reading, Muhammed Is A Pig. Inevitably the nearby Arabs rioted and the police moved in to arrest and remove the legitimate Jewish protesters.
Which is precisely what happened in Silwan last week.
