Hachrazah 5769 Sivan 25
Translation from Hebrew of the 25 Sivan, 5769 (17 June 2009) statement:
Statement from the Beit Din of the Sanhedrin to the People of Israel and to the Seventy Nations
AFTER THE SPEECHES
The heads of state who recently spoke publicly about the state of affairs in the Land of Israel have apparently forgotten that the G-d of the universe watches over the country “from the beginning of the year until the end” and that the Land of Israel is the ultimate material and spiritual basis of all of human history.
The Bible expresses the idea of the presence of G-d in the world and His Providence over all of His creatures. He is the G-d who gave to the people of Israel, His beloved nation, the land that is designated for them. Therefore the people of Israel are not stealing G-d’s gift and anyone who challenges this legacy which involves His giving the Torah to the Jewish People and their acceptance of it as opposed to the nations of the world who refused to take it and instead push the nations to war, will have to stand to judgment in the Valley of Yehoshafat.
The speeches in part continue to expresses a lack of faith in humanity’s obligation to develop the Land of Israel for the People of Israel as a holy land. Instead they spoke of making peace with its being stolen away – Netanyahu’s speech on one hand, and justifying this act of theft on the other – Obama’s speech.
We commend the Prime Minister of the State of Israel, Mr. Binyamin Netanyahu for making the recognition of the State of Israel as a Jewish state a condition for any dialogue with peoples and nations.
We censure Binyamin Netanyahu for choosing the path of expelling Jews from the outposts, thus denying the principles on which he thought to base his speech.
Dismantling the outposts and expelling their residents in effect means adopting the ideas and policy of Barack Hussein Obama. We call upon all Jews to oppose expulsion of the outposts by their presence there.
We encourage all of those who are actively involved in settling the Land of Israel and holding on to all of its breadth.
We again call upon the citizens to locate themselves in the mountainous regions for their own safety against the day when, G-d forbid, weapons of mass destruction will be turned against us.
It is proper that the government leaders hear what their own mouths are saying. In order for Israel to be a Jewish state, headed by Jewish leaders, they must recognize the State of Israel as a state whose existence is contingent on accepting G-d’s leadership and removing all moral impurity from the land, first and foremost, removing the abominations from our country that cause the land to spew its inhabitants.
Accepting the “Gay Pride” parades in our holy land is the ultimate proof that that State of Israel has failed as a Jewish state, constituting a desecration of G-d’s name and showing support for Obama and the moral standards that he represents.
It is the obligation of the Jewish people to accept warmly the people who walk in the path of G-d and accept the Seven Noachide Laws in the strength of Torah and faith.
The Land of Israel from the Euphrates to the Nile cannot contain nations or groups, nor even individuals, who openly oppose the exclusivity of the Land of Israel as promised to the people of Israel, and those who do not accept the Noachide laws, which means to set up proper courts of law, to instill proper faith for the nations, and to observe the laws of sexual propriety, and to abstain from murder and theft.
We believe and know that very soon as a result of the struggle over Jerusalem, the land will contain tens of millions of the children of Israel, if not more: “Who can count the dust of Jacob”, all of those who had been dispersed throughout the world, the core of whose descendants are the Jewish people, remainders of the Kingdom of Judah and Benjamin and Levi.
The world anticipates the imminent return of the lost tribes of Israel, returning to the faith of their fathers and the everlasting peace between Efraim and Judah and the establishment of the Kingdom of the House of David. The Israelite descendants will find their place within the promised borders.
Nations or states who demand or maintain a false sovereignty in the area designated for the Jewish people live there unlawfully, in a land that is not theirs, and will be ultimately forced to relinquish their hold, either voluntarily or under duress.
The nucleus of the world is the place that G-d chose for His Temple in Jerusalem, a sanctuary for the G-d of the Universe, as stated by the prophets.
The courtyards of the Temple – and not the nucleus of the Temple – are a house of prayer for all the nations that will come to bow down before the G-d of Israel, the one G-d who created heaven and earth.
We call upon the People of Israel and all of the nations to help establish the house of G-d , the G-d of Israel, on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem, known as the Temple Mount, in the exact location of the original Temple and to bring offerings to the G-d of Israel according to the religious laws.
The place of the Temple was designated ever since the dawn of creation as a place that brings peace in the world, and that will overcome the hatred of Cain for Abel, and will prevent those wars of the End of Days which are known to all of the religions which are enemies of the Jewish people, after their attempts to steal the Jewish people’s soul and subject them to their own religions and beliefs.
All those who help Israel, may the G-d of Israel be with them, and those who distress us, may G-d not be with them.
For G-d will not cast off His people nor will He forsake His legacy.
And in agreement we the members of the Beit-Din, have affixed our signature.
