QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
What is the demonstrators’ message to the world?
The demonstrators are proclaiming to the world that the State of Israel does not represent the Jewish nation. In fact, they are against everything Judaism stands for and they systematically undermine the fundamentals of the Jewish faith.
Judaism is based on the belief in G-d’s existence and His creation of the world, the belief that G-d controls the entire world to the minutest detail from Creation until this very day, and the observance of the Torah’s commandments, which were given to the Jewish people over 3000 years ago at Mount Sinai.
Belief in G-d and the observance of the Torah are what define the Jewish people as a nation. Anyone who does not adhere to the Torah’s way of life cannot speak for the Jewish People.
The State of Israel willfully undermines faith in G-d and Torah observance.
How does the State of Israel undermine Judaism?
The founder of the Zionist philosophy that later led to the establishment of the State of Israel, was an atheist who denied G-d’s existence and did not keep the Torah’s commandments. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Likewise, the State of Israel’s founder and first prime minister was an atheist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Throughout the 65 years of the State’s existence, they have forced entire communities of Jews, including millions of adults and children, to abandon all religious Jewish practices. They destroyed their faith and spitefully prevented them from keeping the Torah’s commandments. (See Genocide in the Holy Land, by Moshe Schonfeld, available onlinehttp://www.
Their education system teaches millions of children to deny G-d’s existence and spurn the Torah. As a matter of fact, the very act of establishing a State, without waiting for G-d’s redemption through the Messiah, is against Torah law. Fighting with the non-Jewish neighbors is also fundamentally against Torah law. (Talmud, Kesubos 111a)
In summary, the Zionists and the State of Israel constitute the greatest threat to Judaism, by undermining Jewish belief and practice.
What is the purpose of Israel’s current effort to draft religious Jews?
The new draft law is part of a veiled effort to continue their goal of “reeducating” religious Jews. Many of their politicians have said so explicitly. The greatest proof that the draft is ideologically motivated and does not arise from a military need is that most Israeli army generals are opposed to the idea, claiming that the army does not need more soldiers to train, especially not the ultra-Orthodox who will be uncooperative due to ideological and religious opposition to the draft.
As a matter of fact, in 2012, the army did not even have enough funds to call up its current trained reserves.
How come I never heard of the ultra-Orthodox view before?
Unlike other Jewish groups, religious and non-religious, who make efforts to reach the media and engage in lobbying, the ultra-Orthodox are busy with their quiet lifestyle, keeping Torah law, raising families, and running their schools to educate their children on the Jewish path. When they are sufficiently enraged at anti-religious policies in Israel to actually take to the streets, their views are sometimes misunderstood by the media.
What do the ultra-Orthodox ask of the world?
“Please do not be silent! Please speak out against the injustice done to the ultra-Orthodox, by drafting them into the Israeli army, against their religious conscience!”
