(in the aftermath of Netiv HaAvot, Amona, Ofra’s 7, and Gush Katif)
send boys off to fight the Six Days
then give our Temple Mount to Wakf
get to Hevron, but seal Isaac’s tomb from Jews
send em off to defend the country from terror
and get jailed and demoted for doing so
sent off to protect the country
as the very army you serve demolishes your very own home
who are you defending and what protecting?
The country is ours, the state is not
foreign rule foreign state foreign rules
They’ll love you if you fight for the enemy
They’ll love you if you denounce your Am
sleep with the enemy the terrorists and missionaries
but defend Torah? defy assimilation?
Torah’s on the wrong side of these wrong tracks
send the boys off to serve a foreign god
on our Promised Land the Erev Rav rule
the state and its army are false gods
Do you see yet, Am Yisrael?!
as the angel told the Kuzari king
“Your intension is acceptable in the eyes of God,
but your deeds are not acceptable.”
in the eyes of the One and only God.
“If you see towns plucked from their places in the Land of Israel, know that they did not pay the salaries of the teachers of the Written and Oral Torah” (Midrash Rabba).
“If in My statutes you walk and My commandments you keep and do them, then…you will dwell in your land in safety [and]…I will give peace in the land” (VaYikra 25: 18, 26: 1-6).
