Condolences to the family of the murder victim today at Tapuah Junction

61 Comments 30 April 2013

Baruch Dayan HaEmet – Blessed is the True Judge

Rabbis for Human Rights is horrified by the nationalistic murder today at Tapuah Junction of Evyatar Borovski, a father of five from Yitzhar. Even a morally justified campaign against a discriminatory military regime does not justify harm to civilians, and we harshly condemn any attack such as this. Harm to civilians must remain outside the legitimate constraints even during conflict. We offer our condolences to the family of the murder victim and hope they know no more pain.

    I join with you in your condemnation of the murder of this man. May those who have caused this murder be brought to justice, if not by our government, than by G-d himself.

  2. Rachamim Ben Ami says:

    Why could Rabbis for Human Rights not simply offered a condemnation? Why did it feel the need to frame it as, “morally justified campaign against a discriminatory military regime”? Not only is that disgusting, it is dishonest. Israel’s control of that area began in 1967. If it was part of a “morally justified campaign” then this campaign could only have begun in 1967. Palestinian terrorism against Jews began in 1913 with organised pogroms beginning in 1920. This man died only because he is a Jew and because a Palestinian- like most Palestinians- cannot stomach a peaceful co-existence with Jews on an equal basis.

    • David Avram says:

      Rachamim,

      If you only focus on what THEY (the Palestinians) do wrong, and not Jews/Israelis, how are we ever going to find a reasonable solution to this conflict?

      It may actually be true to say, the reason this conflict rages on, is not because of the murders and acts of aggression (on both sides), but for the fact that thousands of people (on both sides) are holding these kind of self-serving, self-righteous ‘it’s all THEIR fault’ beliefs.

      Torah COMMANDS us to love our neighbours as ourselves. As hard as this may be for most of us, how can we even begin to start talking about ‘peaceful co-existence’ if people can’t even rise to the basic level of understanding that in ANY conflict there are two sides to the story and there is always a middle-ground to be had.

      If I came out and said ‘it’s no good, Israeli Jews don’t want peace – how can you negotiate with them’, your normal sense of fairness and understanding of bias would surely be triggered immediately and you would understandably, rightly call this a gross generalization and accuse me of direct prejudice.

      So, why should it be acceptable when you talk about Palestinians this way? And why should anyone take you seriously when you claim to want ‘equality’?

      Sorry for my harsh words, but there is such a double standard here that if it isn’t talked about, we are all being completely dishonest with ourselves.

      Shalom

  3. Your NGO is pro-palestinian and anti-israeli oriented. According to my understanding this is a severe transgression. Furthermore, your NGO is supporting the BDS-Movement.

    According to my knowledge there is no single NGO in any arab country supporting Israel or Jews.

    To make your NGO really perfect, replce our Thora with the Quran of your friends.

    Therefore, shame on all of you Dhimmis. Fie!

Higher spec cameras from time to time use a blend of both systems and probably have Face Priority AF where the video camera can ‘See’ the face while focusing only upon that. Thanks for sharing your thinking on this blog site.

  44. Thanks for the interesting things you have disclosed in your short article. One thing I’d really like to discuss is that FSBO interactions are built after some time. By introducing yourself to the owners the first weekend their FSBO is definitely announced, prior to the masses start calling on Wednesday, you generate a good interconnection. By mailing them tools, educational supplies, free reports, and forms, you become the ally. If you take a personal fascination with them and also their situation, you produce a solid link that, on most occasions, pays off in the event the owners decide to go with a real estate agent they know in addition to trust — preferably you actually.

  45. In line with my research, after a in foreclosure process home is marketed at an auction, it is common to the borrower to still have any remaining balance on the mortgage loan. There are many loan merchants who try and have all rates and liens repaid by the following buyer. Even so, depending on certain programs, regulations, and state laws there may be a number of loans which aren’t easily settled through the transfer of personal loans. Therefore, the duty still rests on the borrower that has received his or her property foreclosed on. Many thanks sharing your notions on this weblog.
