God gives ropeGen 15:16 After four generations they will return here to this land; for the wickedness of the Amorite nations living here now will not be ready for punishment until then." TLB (Gen 15:16 ...for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure." NIV)
See: "...failure by our leaders to ensure the country's national security, coupled with personal greed and a lust for power..."
Treason Arutz Sheva News Service. April 19, 2004 "Save Israel from the disengagement/ evacuation/ expulsion plan." Rabbi Shabtai Sabato, head of the Netivot Yosef Yeshiva High School in Mitzpeh Yericho: "This program is a moral offense of the first degree, unprecedented in the history of the State. It cries out to Heaven! A basic principle in Jewish Law is ein dochin nefesh mipnei nefesh, (we do not sacrifice one person to save another one, or even to save another 100). How is it possible for the State to send thousands of people - men, women, and children - who went on a national mission to live in Gush Katif, to build their homes, to start agriculture and businesses and schools, and who stood up to daily attacks for many years - the real pioneers, those who 'stand at the head of the camp' - and then, instead of saying thank you, the State throws them out of their homes?! Over 4,000 rockets fired at their homes, and then we throw them out?! This is the opposite of the fundamental tenet of gratefulness. This is a moral offense that we simply cannot allow to happen."

CorruptionAt the request of 40 MKs, the Prime Minister (Sharon) was forced to sit through the nearly three-hour session against corruption, and heard speaker after speaker malign him and his government. Several Likud MKs pointed out corruption in Labor as well.
"Of course they didn't find any evidence against Sharon [in last year's Greek island scandal investigation]," railed out MK Benny Elon, of the opposition National Union party. "When one employs Mafia methods, evidence can never be found against him. Mafioso are never tried for their real crimes, but only for minor infractions such as tax evasion - because they never leave a trail." Arutz-7 Editor Arutz-7 News: Wednesday, June 15, 2005

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon plans to present the Likud Knesset faction with a detailed timetable for the implementation of the disengagement/expulsion plan. He is likely to essentially present a stark ultimatum to his Likud colleagues: Either disengagement or new elections. Sharon told the Cabinet ministers of his plans at today's meeting. Minister Zevulun Orlev (NRP) asked him why he does not first present the timetable to the Cabinet, and Sharon said, "Nothing will stop me. I won't allow myself to be chained on my hands and feet."

Responding to a disagreement between ministers over whether the pullout will be done at once or in four stages, Sharon is reported to have blurted out: "I decided and that's how it will be." The Media Line Daily News Focus 8/31/2004 <email@example.com>
Sharon received a political boost from Arafat, when Arafat said that he would wait to outlive Sharon, hoping that Sharon and Bush will be history after elections, next fall. Sharon responded, "I did not know he was waiting for me to fall. I thought that it was only the Jews who wish my political demise". VoiceofJudea@aol.com Mon, 26 Jul 2004

he expects violence during the withdrawal from Gaza, Sharon said, "I expect
[it] before and during... One should not underestimate the tension here,
the atmosphere here. It looks like on the eve of a civil war... All my life
I was defending [the lives] of Jews. Now, for [the] first time, security
steps are taken to protect me from Jews."
MK Tzvi Hendel (National Union), a resident of Gush Katif and one of Sharon's most bitter opponents, said, "Sharon is a liar. He knows that the only one who can lead to a civil war is he himself."
Hendel's party colleague MK Uri Ariel also blamed the Prime Minister for the atmosphere he himself created: "Sharon is like someone who pushed his mother down the steps, was put on trial for murder, and then asked for mercy because he's an orphan."

No ideologyShaul Chalfon, veteran Israeli activist served alongside Ariel Sharon for over 20 years in the army and he warned us that he never did anything because of ideology, only because of self interest.Revava News and Commentary By Yaakov Ish Tam firstname.lastname@example.org 5-15-05
LeftistSharon heads a party for which he feels total disdain. Sharon never had independent ideological and intellectual depth. On the contrary, his roots are in Kfar Malal [a moshav associated with the Labor Party] and they guide his behavior." 13 April 2004 www.manhigut.org
28 April 2004 Israel Television Channel One correspondent Boaz Shapira quoted Sharon this evening as labeling his opponents "extremists" and threatening that a vote against the plan is a vote against Sharon himself.
Knesset voted 64-44 to pass the Disengagement Implementation bill. The bill, a necessary step in Prime Minister Sharon's expulsion and evacuation program from Gaza and northern Samaria, lays out the details of the dismantling of 25 Jewish communities and the handover of their land to the Palestinian Authority. The bill forces a compensation package upon the 8,500 uprooted residents, threatens them with 3-5 years in prison for resisting the expulsion in groups of three or more, allows for the confiscation of their property, allows the Prime Minister to forbid entry to an area by his mere decree, and overrides the Basic Law's provision that citizens have rights to their property. National Union MK Tzvi Hendel said that Sharon now has become the official leader of Peace Now and the extreme left. Arutz Sheva News Service, Nov. 4, 2004

Mr. Sharon apparently misunderstood Harry S. Truman's recommendation that "if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen." ...The "you" is the politician - not the nation the politician is leading. Dr. Aaron Lerner, Director IMRA. Weekly Commentary: Retreat driven by spinelessness - not reason. 10/10/2004 email@example.com
"The residents of Yesha (Judea, Samaria and Gaza) feel that Ariel Sharon has shot them in the back - those who he himself sent to Zionism's front lines. ... Sharon is like a fool who repeats his folly" - a reference to Sharon's destruction of the city of Yamit in Sinai in 1982. MK Uri Ariel (National Union)

to PM Sharon: On the eve of Yom Kippur, when Heaven reviews and judges
our actions, I write to express my extreme dismay over your designation of
our People as a nation of "beggars".
I was absolutely disgusted to learn that during a cabinet discussion about your recent meeting with President Bush, you explained that you hadn't asked for my release because "Beggars can't make noise"! J4JP Release - October 2, 2003

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is apparently going ahead with his plans for what he calls his "disengagement plan" - known by others as unilateral retreat in face of continued terrorism and no diplomatic options. Arutz Sheva News Service <http://www.IsraelNationalNews.com> Jan. 28, 2004
Deputy Minister Rabbi Yitzchak Levy: "Sharon doesn't care about the exact formulation of the compromise that is reached," he said early this morning. "As long as he has even a little crack that mentions the removal of settlements, he'll be able to run with it - and therefore we cannot support this and will have to leave the government if it is passed." Arutz Sheva News Service. June 3, 2004
|"Just as in the case of Lebanon, it is
taking a long time for the public to understand that a real war is going
on in Gaza. A unilateral retreat as planned by Sharon is not just 'retreat
under fire' - it's actually 'deserting the battlefield in the height of battle.'

MK Ariel said that we must not look at the current conflict "as a three-year old war, but rather as part of the 140-year struggle for Zionism, or even, if you will, as part of all of Jewish history... The question is, however, if the Jewish People are always advancing, why is it that the leadership always sees the graph as if it is always dropping?"
Ariel continued to express his confidence in the situation, saying that he does not totally agree with the common perception that 'we have settled in the hilltops, but not in the hearts [of the nation]': "In general, there is much admiration among Israelis for the Yesha population and the Yesha enterprise - but it's hard for this to manifest itself when the Prime Minister, whoever he is, takes a different approach... Our leadership is weak - it doesn't meet the goals it itself set, and then blames the public for its own weaknesses... Jerusalem Conference . Arutz Sheva News Service. Mar. 16, 2004
The Manhigut Yehudit (Jewish Leadership) faction in the Likud, headed by Moshe Feiglin, calls on Prime Minister Sharon to resign. The group said that Sharon should draw the appropriate conclusions from his four recent political defeats in the Likud party, display public integrity - and resign.

Sharon_ArafatSharon also talked about long-term bridges but didn't discuss this generation as well, because neither leader sees peace on the horizon. Sharon talked with me about how history would have been different had he told that Israeli sharpshooter in Beirut to take the shot and kill Arafat two decades ago. There was clear disappointment that he ordered the shooter to stand down. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,50182,00.html. By Rita Cosby. Face-to-Face with Arafat and Sharon.

|"The fact that he will fall - that is
certain. But I'm just not sure if it will be via [State Prosecutor] Edna
Arbel and [Attorney-General] Meni Mazuz." So said last night the fiery Mayor
of Kedumim Daniella Weiss, one of the most veteran Yesha (Judea, Samaria
and Gaza) activists, referring to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
The fact that he will go down is certain - because whoever tries to harm the Land of Israel, loses his right to lead the Nation of Israel. But I don't want to fall for the illusion that it will be specifically via Edna Arbel or Meni Mazuz and the desire to bring him to trial. But if it happens that way, then so be it."

Arutz-7 petition comments
Zionsake Editor: Arutz-7 is a vital source of news and views that is not tainted by globalist agendas, ignorance and whitewashing of Muslim aspirations (based on terrorism), and unrealistic fears and peace premises of Jewish and gentile Free Masons, Jesuits, leftists, atheists, agnostics, humanists and Hellenists - Jews of the latter kind are kippa wearing religious leftists, some running the Israeli Justice system and others, politicians, fighting with the Arabs for the Arabs.
Arutz-7 represents the Joshua/Caleb sector of Israeli society that trust the God of Israel when threatened by opposition in claiming Isaac and Jacob's inheritance.They don't have the gutzpah to overturn Jehovah's sovereign decision to settle his returning Jews on the mountains of Israel - they fear Jehovah more than N. America and Europe.
Don't silence the voice that tells you, Mr. Prime Minister, that you don't have the authority to make painful concessions with Jehovah's land; even to negotiate with Ishmael over his claims of Isaac's inheritance - Exodus 34:12 Be careful not to make a treaty with those who live in the land where you are going, or they will be a snare among you. -- Leviticus. 25:23 The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is Mine and you are but aliens and My tenants
DomocracyThe true sovereign in Israel is not the People and their elected representatives, but rather the Supreme Court (Judiciary) and other un-elected bodies empowered by it. The true sovereign will see to it that if the People vote for the Left, they will get the Left -- and if they vote for the Right, they will get even further Left.
