Each week, thousands of Israeli Jewish youth faithfully listen to JTF's two Hebrew-language internet broadcasts to hear the message of the real opposition to Israeli Bolshevik dictator Ariel Sharon.
One of our programs is hosted by heroic Jewish dissident Noam Federman, the spiritual leader of the Hilltop Youth, and the second program is hosted by Chaim Ben Pesach and Gil Avraham. (To hear JTF's Hebrew programs click here and here.)
On the most recent broadcast, Ben Pesach delivered the following message:
"The battle to save the Land of Israel from Sharon's suicidal plan to retreat from the Gaza District and northern Samaria will be decided by the willingness of tens of thousands of G-d-fearing Jews to go to prison and to be beaten by Bolshevik soldiers and police. Of course, we hope that all Jewish soldiers and police will refuse to obey the criminal orders of the traitor Sharon to expel Jewish pioneering families from their sacred homeland. Many soldiers and police will disobey such evil and anti-Semitic orders. However, many others will obey the monstrous orders, and therefore we must be willing to resist the Bolshevik forces of expulsion and destruction that are arrayed against us.
"The sacrifice that we are called upon to make is a relatively small one in the historical context of Jewish sacrifices for the Land of Israel that have been made by millions of Jews for thousands of years. We simply have to be willing to go to prison for a number of weeks or possibly a number of months. If enough Jews are willing to do this, Sharon's wicked scheme will not succeed.
"As we prepare for massive civil disobedience, and as we prepare to go to prison for our people, for our homeland and for our eternal faith, we must never forget the far greater sacrifices made by so many Jews in prior generations for the sacred land that the despicable dictator Sharon is now voluntarily throwing away.
"The heroic freedom fighters of Etzel [the Irgun Tzvai Leumi] and Lechi [Fighters for the Freedom of Israel, or the Stern Group] gave their lives to liberate the Jewish homeland from British Nazi colonialist rule. The British Nazis not only refused to grant the Jews freedom in their own homeland, the British Nazis also deliberately closed the doors of the Holy Land to Jewish emigration during the Holocaust, when 6 million Jews could have been saved if they had been allowed to escape from Hitler's inferno in Europe. The Germans were willing to allow the Jews to leave Europe, but the British closed the doors. Shiploads of Jewish refugees who arrived at Israel's ports were forcibly sent back by the British to the gas chambers and the ovens of Auschwitz.
"It was this unspeakably cruel and evil British Nazi oppressor that the Jews of Etzel and Lechi rebelled against.
"The British Nazis set up military courts to sentence heroic Jewish rebels to death by hanging. Dozens of Jewish heroes were hanged. The British, the rest of the Jews and the entire world were astounded by the incredible courage and nobility of these modern-day Hebrew rebels.
"One of the famous Etzel freedom fighters was Meir Feinstein, who lost his arm battling the British. Despite losing his arm, Feinstein continued to fight British Nazi tyranny as a member of the Hebrew underground.
"Feinstein was eventually captured and faced a British military court.
"Knowing that if he made a defiant statement to the court, it would almost certainly guarantee a sentence of death by hanging, Feinstein fearlessly faced the court and said the following:
"Officers of the Occupation Army!
"A regime of hanging, this is the regime that you want to impose on this land, a land that is destined to be a lighthouse for all of humanity, and in your foolish wickedness you assume that by means of this regime you will succeed in breaking the will of our people, a people for whom the whole world has been a scaffold to murder the innocent.
"You have erred. You will discover that you have come up against steel. Against steel that is fortified into a fire of love and hate, love for the homeland and for liberty, hate for the oppressor and the invader. This is a burning steel. You will not break it. It will burn your hands.
"How great is your blindness, British tyrants! Do you still not realize who stands against you in this campaign, that there is no one else like him in the history of nations? You will scare us with death? We, who for years have heard the rattle of the wheels of those railroad cattle cars that have led our brothers, our parents, the best of our people to the slaughter, something that also cannot be compared to anything else in the history of nations?
"We, who asked and now ask ourselves every day: why are we better than them, than millions of our brothers? We could have been among them and with them during the days of fear and in the moments of death.
"To these questions that we ask over and over, there is in our conscience one answer. We remained alive not to see conditions of slavery and oppression, to see a new Treblinka. We remained alive to promise life, liberty and honor for our people, for our children and for our children's children, forever and ever. We remained alive so that there would never be a repetition of what occurred there and what is liable to occur under your rule, the rule of betrayal, the rule of bloodshed.
"Therefore, we cannot be frightened. We have learned that there is a life worse than death and that there is a death that is greater than life."
"Meir Feinstein was sentenced to die by hanging. Before he was hanged, he sang the Hebrew national anthem, HaTikva [The Hope].
"How many millions of Jews for thousands of years died or were murdered dreaming of a Jewish homeland? That dream must live.
"Just as there is a life worse than death, and a death that is greater than life, there is an inner freedom that political prisoners of conscience who defend the Land of Israel experience while sitting in their jail cells.
"Those who willingly and joyfully go to prison to save the Land of Israel will truly be free. Those who are not willing to go to prison to save their people can never be free."
These weekly broadcasts are inspiring thousands of Jewish youth to prepare for civil disobedience. It could have been hundreds of thousands of Jewish youth, if only we had the funds to advertise our programs far more extensively. But we will work with what we have, and pray to G-d to help us save little Israel.
The more money we raise, the better our chances of stopping Sharon's horrific surrender.
For in the end, it will be Jewish dissidents Noam Federman, Itamar Ben Gvir and the valiant Hilltop Youth who will lead the only effective resistance to Sharon's insane program.
JTF supports the political activities of the Hilltop Youth, and therefore is not tax-deductible.
The Voice of Jewish Activism (VJA) is strictly non-political. It supports the educational efforts and the humanitarian needs of the Hilltop Youth and right-wing Jewish dissidents and therefore is tax-deductible.
Your generous checks and money orders made out to "VJA" can be sent to:
We need loyal, idealistic, Torah-true Jews to lead the struggle against the traitor Sharon's suicidal retreat.
We have the Torah-true leaders and we have the thousands of young idealists. But they need more money to conduct such a huge and sophisticated campaign.
In the historic struggle for Israel's survival, this is the moment of truth.
Which is why we strongly urge our many loyal readers - both Jews and righteous Gentiles - to immediately do the following four things:
First, if you are a wealthy Jew or a wealthy righteous Gentile, and you have wealthy friends and associates, you can hold a fundraising cocktail party for JTF (which is political but not tax-deductible) or VJA (which is tax-deductible and non-political). Even if you are not wealthy - but have wealthy friends and associates - you can organize a cocktail party. If you wish to hold a cocktail party, please contact us.
Second, make out a generous check or money order (which can be anonymous) to "JTF" or "VJA" and send it out right away. If you prefer, you can also mail a cash donation.
Third, zealously spread the word about the jtfarchive.org web site. Posting portions of jtfarchive.org on popular internet message boards is especially effective. We do get many new hits when we are posted.
Fourth, please remember to include the "Jewish Task Force (JTF)" and/or the "Voice of Jewish Activism (VJA)" in your will.
