B"H - Let me reproduce here for the record part a fb thread:
that the State is not Torah-compliant, Ariel, what would you have us do
until the Israelites as a whole experience an epiphany and return
completely to the ways of Torah? What exactly are you calling for? What
is your "Torah solution" for the current situation?
Ariel Ben YochananI'm
advocating institutional discontinuity, a.k.a. revolution, as none of
the present institutions we operate on the Land are Torah institutions.
In particular I don't call for armed conflict, as I fully realize the
established powers are very strong, but for a disengagement from the
State as much as it is legally possible. This approach doesn't put
anyone in danger. We can show Hashem we are with Him by not voting for
kneset, for example. We voted for Him in Sinai, under the Mount for all
generations. So I think the most effective tool in our hands is
political abstention, apart of course leading Torah-compatible,
mitzvot-observant individual lives, which by the way includes the
incessant desire for our missing Torah institutions: A Jewish king to
run the executive according to Torah, a Kohen Gadol to run the Temple on
the Temple Mount of Jerusalem according to Torah, the Sanhedrin and
Righteous courts in every village to administer justice according to
Torah. These are our prescribed Torah institutions and my understanding
is that as Jews we are not allowed to simply renounce them as we do
B"H - There are many mitzvot associated with Sukot, but one of the main theme of this most Jewish of festivals is the celebration of Hashem's protection of the Children of Israel. Moving in to our sukkahs for a week, is as if we were saying "We don't need walls G-d, we trust You with our security! Indeed, You are our protector".
So, why don't you guys who worship the State and its IDF jump out from your sukkahs? Don't you realize what is it all about? If you were intellectually honest, you'd build your sukkahs of
bunker-grade concrete equipped with state of the art weaponry, trusting
Hashem for your security! What liars you are!
B"H - Yom Kippur is closely linked to tsuva, repentance In this week's shiur Rav. Richter mentions what I talk here about all the time, that is the aspect of a real repentance which must include not only the individual, private sphere, but also the national: We must not continue to ignore the Torah requirement of setting up certain institutions on the Land and run them the prescribed, Torah way, i.e. we must desire and cry out to Hashem for a Jewish king, to run the executive according to Torah, for the Sanhedrin, just courts, to administer justice according to Torah and for a Kohen Gadol to run the Temple on the Temple Mount in Yerushalayim according to Torah. Without this aspect, no repentance is complete. Relating this to Yom Kippur, it seems that even the passive acceptance of the secular State and its democracy are obstacles to redemption, let alone an active participation in it.
B"H - What can possibly be wrong with a news-item entitled "A Sefer Torah in Gratitude to the IDF"? Well, everything really. Why? Because in Judaism it is the other way round: We thank Hashem, our G-d, the giver of the Torah for our successes! Attention, Zionism, the new replacement religion worshiping the "Renaissance of the Jewish People", already transformed Judaism without many of us even noticing anything!
B"H - With reference to the new "high court" appointments, the bottom line is that we must not be surprised that the Erev Rav, the anti-Jewish mixed multitude, keeps accumulating power in its hands. The simple fact is that we know full well that no good can come out from the State of Israel's institutions, as they are defiantly non-Torah and anti- Torah institutions and as Jews we must pretend the establishment of Torah institutions on the Land: a Jewish king with his two Torah scrolls to run the executive, a Cohen Gadol to run the Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, a Sanhedrin and just courts throughout the Land to administer justice. These are the Jewish institutions and checks and balances prescribed by our Constitution, the Torah! When we deviate from this divine model of running a perfect society, we commit a huge and public Chilul Hashem, desecration of G-d's Name, for which we can only be punished in terrible, terrible ways: So much for the masochism of our People, the Children of Israel. In conclusion, the Jewish response to this must be to abandon as much as possible this State's Hellenistic democracy, to abstain at least from the vote for evil kneset!
B"H - Don't even think of bringing your family to Har Bracha, there is idol worshiping in there! What is going on in there
is the visible sign of the bankruptcy of Religious Zionism: A corrupt
political establishment hand in hand with derailed rabbis and their
supporters, the Erev Rav, against Torah, Torah Jews and ultimately:
Against Hashem, our G-d! Har Bracha is led astray by its "rav" Melamed and by the greed.of its developers, the
concrete-pouring Zionists who instead of Hashem, worship the "Renaissance
of the Jewish People", as Rav. Kook put it. And, of course, by the lining of
their own pockets.

- AbY: "Think for a sec about this State and the fact that it didn't have a day of peace in 66 years. Why do you think that is?
- Batsheva Ben-Ador: "Oh, I know it too well. I am saying so even when I know it is not welcome - but the Truth of G-d is real and present, even if they all want to close their eyes and stick to a sinful cowardly liberal notion of a treacherous, G-dless zionist occupier of Eretz Yisrael. People are simply unwilling to look at the truth and accept the corruption and violation, the sacrilege of the Divine Land that G-d Himself has given to us. Traitors to the Cause of G-d..."
"I agree with you. Many many years ago before I became frum I was a zionist. I do not want zionism at my seder table, I want Torah!!!! I want to tell you that I do read a lot of what you write and I agree with you!!!! Israel needs more Torah not more zionists!!!! It sickens me the way the govt/media treat the Torah lovers in Israel".Jarred Nisenfeld

B"H - We are at a historic juncture. The Jews have returned as a sovereign people onto the Land of Israel. Are we "possessing" the Land and "settling in" it as we should? No, we are not. From the exile we bought with us back to our homeland - the exile. This refers not only to our private mentality but also and mainly to our national institutions we established here in Israel: To our political parties, to our knesset, to our prime minister, to our supreme court, with other words, to the State of Israel: We established a non-Jewish State in Eretz Israel. None of the above mentioned are Torah institutions, so, instead of being a light onto the nations we insist to be a poor carbon copy of them. This Hellenistic and assimilationist drive must be overturned and we must re-establish our Jewish, Torah institutions on THE Land G-d gave us for a specific purpose, to allow us to be His Holy Nation on His Holy Land, a show-case as it were to humanity on how to build and on how to run a perfect society. This is why we urgently need the Beit Hamikdash on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem to be run by a Cohen Gadol, a Jewish king with his two Torah scrolls to run the executive, the Sanhedrin and just Courts of Law in every village to administer justice. These are our prescribed Torah institutions we are told to run in Eretz Israel, on our G-g given Holy Land. We must re-establish our territorial integrity and re-apply halacha (Jewish Law) regarding all aspects of life, including some hot issues, like the status of the non-Jewish population within the Land. The idea behind this page is to promote the Authentic Jewish Mission against all liberal, reformed and deformed so called judaisms and as such it requires your support. Let's stand up for our Torah by doing ALL the applicable mitzvot individually and as a nation and not allow Zionism to disfigure Judaism: They are NOT one and the same thing: Judaism worships Hashem, Zionism "the renaissance of the Jewish People": A self-serving, reform, anti-Torah distortion!
