Bibi Will Fail, Like Other PMs Who Evicted Jews: Begin, Sharon, Olmert (JEWISH PRESS OP-ED) By: David Wilder 04/05/12)

I had just wrapped up a pleasant visit with my good friend Jack from
the US. As he pulled away, the beeper beeped, with something of a
blood-chilling message: “Police have broken into Machpelah House and
are expelling its residents.”
Over the past few days, a number of important politicians had visited
Machpelah House, including Ministers Yuli Edelstein, Yisrael Katz,
Moshe Kachlon, Deputy Minister Gila Gamliel, and MKs Uri Ariel and
Tzippy Hotoveli. And there may be others that I’ve forgotten.
When Barak insisted on expelling the families from the building,
others, including Gideon Sa’ar and Limur Livnat, protested publicly.
Last night, as we were conducting a small dedication in Machpelah
House, Bibi was meeting with a group of ministers to discuss
the “crisis.” Unofficial results consisted of “no decision yet”
and “no change in status,” at least until of end of April.
So when the storm-troopers crashed the party early Wednesday
afternoon, very few people were home. Most were at their “other
homes,” getting ready for Passover. It only took a few minutes for
the hundreds of police, border police, soldiers and riot squad to
round up a few women and kids, and see them to the door. Quiet,
peaceful, almost pastoral. Almost. But not quite. Watching a group of
about twenty Border-police women surrounding and escorting a young
woman with her two very small children isn’t really tranquility-in-
action. Actually, it’s rather sickening.
So what happened? Yesterday Bibi said that we’d have some time to
prove our case. And today?
It seems that our Prime Minister, as we get close to the holiday
celebrating our exodus from Egypt, decided to dress up as the Pharaoh
and to assist with another exodus. This one from Hebron. Of course,
his original great great granddaddy tried to keep us in Egypt. His
great great grandson, the new version of the Pharaoh, is doing the
opposite, which is, expelling us – from our homes, our property, our
Good ol’ Bibi is the same Prime Minister whose actions took Hebron
into Hell. The decision to split the city, leaving most of Hebron
with Arafat, including the hills surrounding the Jewish community,
led to massive gunfire directed at us for two and a half years.
Leading to the killing of Shalhevet Pass, and to the injuring of
others, physically and otherwise. Bibi promised us we’d be safe. He
In the government decision of January, 1997, Bibi promised to assist
Hebron, building and developing its Jewish community. He lied.
A day ago, Bibi promised that Machpelah House residents would have a
chance to prove that they really own the building. He lied.
A true Pharaoh at heart.
Bibi’s coalition is fairly right-wing. The people in his cabinet
certainly lean right. Likud’s MKs, for the most part, certainly lean
right. His coalition partners certainly lean right.
Except for one: Ehud Barak. Barak is, for all intents and purposes,
partyless. He left Labor, and doesn’t have a spot in the polls. He’s
a nothing, a political nobody. Yet he is Defense Minister of the
State of Israel, and as such, wields tremendous authority. So much so
that his lone opinion outweighs that of Netanyahu’s party, MKs,
Ministers and coalition. So if Ehud says…, Bibi does.
What a mighty, powerful Pharaoh!
It’s clear that this is not an isolated incident. It fits, hand–in-
hand, with Barak’s plans to expel Jews from Migron, Beit El, and who
knows where else. This is just the beginning of the rolling of the
snowball, whose true goal is the deletion of all Jewish presence in
Judea and Samaria.
Other Prime Ministers have expelled Jews from their homes: Menachem
Begin, Ariel Sharon, Ehud Olmert. What happened to them?
That’s where Pharaoh Bibi is headed. In the same direction. He will
fizzle and fail. And Machpelah House, as ensconced in the name
(Machpelah means ‘double’), will double, triple and quadruple itself,
many times over.
Guaranteed! (© 2012 JewishPress. 04/05/12)
