‘Do not participate in razing Amona’

Leading rabbis have called on security forces not to participate in the destruction of Amona.
Yoel Domb, 15/12/16 http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/221771
The Derekh Haim organization, which is devoted to implementing the Torah’s dictates in Jewish public life, has called on security forces not to participate in the destruction of Amona. They emphasized that the community is situated on land belonging to the Jewish people which was redeemed from the hands of gentiles.

In a rabbinic letter publicized Thursday morning, the organization wrote “We encourage the dear residents of Amona at this time when the sword of exile is hanging over them, heaven forfend. May G-d guard and protect you within His nation and His land. The town of Amona resides on land belonging to the people of Israel as is written in the Torah, land which was redeemed from foreigners who conquered our country when we were forcibly exiled from it.”

The rabbis called on the public to join the protest against the destruction and called on security forces not to participate in the destruction. “We call on the public to join the protest against the injustice. We call on members of the security establishment to act according to justice and integrity and not to blindly fulfill every command. The halakha states that “If a king decreed to violate a mitzvah, one does not obey him” (Maimonides, Laws of Kings). Even according to the laws of the country, one should not fulfill an order which is implicitly illegal. May we merit true leadership which stands firm in the way of the Torah for the sake of the people of Israel and the land of Israel.”

The letter was signed by Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg, head of the “Derekh Haim” movement and of the “Gal Einei” institutions, Rabbi Dov Lior, rabbi of Kiryat Arba and Hevron, Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, head of the Temple Institute, Rabbi David Druckman, rabbi of Kiryat Motzkin, Rabbi Simcha Statner, head of the Nahalat Yisrael institutions, Rabbi Daniel Dov Stavski, head of the Baal Shem Tov house and Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, head of the Od Yosef Hai yeshiva.

In the meantime Derekh Haim have stepped up their campaign against the High Court and against what they term the “dictatorship of the High Court of Justice”. Derekh Haim activists distributed flyers and manifestos with campaign messages and demonstrated repeatedly outside the High Court and outside the house of Chief Justice Miriam Naor.
Arutz Sheva comments:Sid Levine

Walter – did you remember Gush Katif. How many are still homeless and jobless despite government promises or even Yamit!
Do you expect the youth who were present at the demo on Tuesday, as you and I were, to constantly accept the ill judged decisions of Israel’s Supreme Court for matters drawn to their attention by such NGO’s as Peace Now etc who are funded and probably directed in their agendas by foreign governments, like those in the UK.

‘High Court President crossed the line’

MK Nurit Koren says President of High Court crossed line by forbidding candidates for High Court from meeting with politicians.

Hezki Baruch, 14/12/16 http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/221731
The President of the High Court, Miriam Naor, crossed a red line when she instructed candidates for the court not to meet with MKs, MK Nurit Koren (Likud) told Arutz Sheva.

“I am a member of the Committee for the Appointment of Judges, and I have unfortunately encountered many difficulties.” MK Koren said. “I want to meet with the candidates who have been judges in our court system and wish to advance. The president [of the High Court] specifically prohibited them from meeting with politicians. She told them that those who meet with politicians will not be appointed.”

“It crosses a red line for me.” she explained. “My voice is like that of any other member [of the Committee for the Appointment of Judges]. It cannot be that I am prevented from meeting with the candidates. It is important to meet with them and have a private conversation, because there are issues that do not always come up at the Committee table.”

“We should not forget, even the courts have internal politics.” she added. “They sometimes delay the appointment of a judge because he does not belong to the correct group or does not have ‘suitable’ opinions. I want to know these things.”

When asked why the President of the High Court issued that directive, Koren replied: “Sometimes the enlightened President Naor wants to have the last word and make the decision. I told her that I am not a rubber stamp. I want to see the candidates, examine them, gather background information. I do not always feel like I receive the [necessary] material.”

“Will the court not maintain the democratic principals it [constantly preaches about]?” she asked.

“I was elected [to the committee] by the 120 members of the Knesset. I do not believe that I should be treated differently from the judges or lawyers who meet with the candidates.”
