II Video – The Disengagement from Gush Katif (Israeli developed strip of Gaza) with Ariel Sharon

Ariel Sharon is dying. It’s not considered nice to say bad things about dead people, especially immediately after their passing. So I’m writing this while he’s still alive. Barely. When I heard the news I wasn’t sure if I wanted to laugh or cry. Laugh, that finally, he’s leaving us. Or cry, because his ‘this world’ suffering is coming to an end.
That’s how much I like Ariel Sharon. He had many positions, and many titles. I will remember him as a monster. When elected to the office of Prime Minister in March, 2001, the 2nd Intifada, or what we call the Oslo War, was well underway. Terror attacks, shootings, and the like had begun. In Hebron, Arab terrorists had taken positions on the hills surrounding the Jewish neighborhoods and were shooting at us like ducks in a pond. Great for target practice, but not when the targets are men, women and children, in their homes, cars, or just plain walking down the street.
Sharon could have stopped it. He didn’t. It continued for almost a year and a half, here in Hebron. Only after the Passover Massacre in Netanya and the killing of five year old Danielle Shefi at Adura, just outside of Hebron, did he finally put an end to the nightmare. He was Prime Minister when most of the over 1,500 people murdered during that war. He could have stopped it. He didn’t. But that was just the beginning.
The expulsion from Gush Katif (Jewish communities on the coast of Gaza) and the Northern Shomron, abandoning the southern tip of Israel to Hamas, brought over 13,000 rockets into Israel, into Ashkelon, Ashdod and Tel Aviv – to this very day. Actually, it began with Menachem Began. He set the precedent, with Ariel Sharon as his right-hand man, implementing the expulsions from the Sinai, giving it to the Egyptians after the Yom Kippur War in 1973, There Sharon learned that it is possible to forcibly remove Jews from their homes, destroy Jewish communities and abandon land to our enemy (without the Israeli nation executing him as a traitor.)
What then is the punishment of people who remove cities from Israel, abandoning the land, expelling the people, endangering the population? What happened to them, what was their fate: Begin, the hero of Jewish underground, the leader who destroyed the Iraqi nuclear threat, secluded himself for years following his resignation as Prime Minister, unseen until his dying day.
Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated.
Ehud Olmert, one of the primary initiators of the Gush Katif catastrophe, has undergone numerous trials on charges of corruption, facing disgrace.
Katzav, who as President refused to oppose the Gush Katif expulsion, imprisoned following conviction for rape, from the president’s mansion to a jail cell.
Ariel Sharon, suffering the worst kind of hell, neither here nor there, not dead, not alive, for the past eight years. Some 8,600 people were expelled from the Gush, a year for every thousand people. And one can only image what he will face when trying to enter the pearly gates of heaven.
It is written that there is a ‘place’ somewhere between this world and the next, called in Hebrew “Kaf HaKelah.” This is a kind of nether land — not here, not there. It is written that here, such souls who have so sinned in this world, float around, not being in this world, or the next, a kind of horrible limbo. Usually, for such deserving souls, this aspect of punishment happens following a person’s death. In Sharon’s case, it began here in this world.
There is a story, told now for years, about how a famous Rabbi cursed Ariel Sharon, saying he should receive a blow on his head. People approached the Rabbi and expressed their opposition to this curse. So, the Rabbi then blessed Sharon, saying, ‘he should live a long life.’ It seems that both the ‘curse’ and the ‘blessing’ were achieved.
So what (or who) should this come to teach, what is the lesson for the future? This is what I ask the present Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, as he seems to be negotiating away our land, Eretz Yisrael. Be it Hebron or Shilo, Gitit in the Jordan Valley, or the Arab villages of the ‘Mishulash, on the eastern Sharon plain, bordering Samaria. This is all our land.
It is clear that, at present, there are at least two parallel sets of discussions going on; those led by Justice Minister Tzippy Livni and those being led by Netanyahu himself, seemingly with Abbas, aka Abu Mazen. The US is pushing, but Israel doesn’t necessarily have to budge. That’s up to us; it is up to our Prime Minister, Foreign Minister (who today came out publicly in favor of an agreement), and the Defense Minister. And the others.
What will be in store for them, what will be their fate, should they choose to walk in the footsteps of Ariel Sharon?
It is difficult to fathom their blindness, how and why they reach such depths of absurdity — to even speak of such concessions, of such abandonment, of such expulsions, again.
One thing is very clear: the United States, and in this case, the Secretary of State John Kerry, is pushing very hard, harder than any of his predecessors in recent history. We can only imagine the types of pressure he is applying on Netanyahu. However, it should be known, the word ‘Kerry’ in Hebrew has a distinct meaning: impurity. It is a term utilized to express a tainted uncleanness, almost a defilement, of body and soul. This term quite accurately describes the American SOB. Sometimes, such scum can be contagious. It seems that, in this case, it is starting to rub off on others.
I can only say: Bibi beware. Don’t fall into the potholes left to you by Sharon. And to the others, who can join him, or leave him, can support him or bring him down, your fate is too hanging in the balance. Purify yourselves from the contamination of Kerry. Before Sharon’s miserable fate will almost look good to you.
(David Wilder is a US citizen that emigrated to Israel in 1974. He has been the titular head and spokesperson for the brave Israelis that have chosen to live in Hebron and Kiryat Arba protecting the Cave of Machpelah – the biblical piece of land that Abraham bought from Ephron the Hittite as a burying-place for his wife Sarah at the exorbitant price of four hundred silver shekels. The cave became the family burying-place, Sarah being the first to be buried there; later, Abraham, Isaac, Rebekah, Leah, and Jacob, the Patriarchs of the Jewish people, were placed there (Genesis xxiii).
It is the area that PM Netanyahu, in an apparent moment of insanity gave apx 90% over to the Arabs at the tail end of the Oslo Accord agreement in the vain hope that it would bring peace. Peace has not even come close. It has been nothing but another Arab center for terrorism ever since. Now David Wilder rightfully fears that Netanyahu is on the verge of another such gargantuan error giving Arabs more land in Judea and Samaria and allowing them a so-called Palestinian State for which the Arabs have only one goal — the final destruction of the State of Israel.) jsk
