The Leader Of The Free World “Makes Time” To Call Gay NBA Player…Even As The West Stands On The Precipice…What’s Going On? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

There are hard core reasons why leftists and Islamists lock-arms, walk shoulder-to-shoulder and generally have each other’s backs. It has everything to do with their totalitarian views – obliterating any viewpoint but their own – as much as their abiding hatred for America’s Judeo-Christian moorings; the ultimate targeted prize, as soon as Israel is (heaven forbid) eliminated.

This is hardly news, but it is important to note how unrelenting their red/green alliance is, even when deep fissures crop up, issues which should naturally tear them apart. Think again.

Now let’s talk straight (no pun intended) and admit: yes, there are many homosexuals in Muslim/Arab nations and among those who  live in the west too, even as the Iranian Hitler exhorts “there are NO gays in Iran”…yada, yada. Yet even as Islamists opine their communities are gay-free, nevertheless, they adjoin at the hip when it comes to “pinkwashing” Israel – a leftist’s natural bludgeon – a nation which is awash in homosexual tolerance, so much so that the leaders view no place too holy for the Gay Parade, even the Jewish people’s eternal capital, Jerusalem! But facts are irrelevant when common goals enter the red/green purview.

Are you confused yet? Well, under normal circumstances the above would be fruity tooty nut talk, but such is not the reality before us. But why does this even matter? It matters because as Obama Inc. (with major leftist organs at their service) shuts down all national discourse regarding the gravest peril to western civilization – Islamic terror – they are busy marching forward with their collective plans – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/28/alert-radical-in-chief-obama-tasks-illegally-bent-ag-holder-to-criminalize-islamic-speech-via-thuggish-un-dictates-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/leaving Americans reeling from Boston’s jihad – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/04/26/us-western-wahhabi-jihad-mosques-bostons-intersection-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/and thoroughly in the cross hairs.

And if all the info appears hysterical-like, listen with your ears attuned at SHARPEST pitch to the following exchange between a Repub-led Congressional committee, as they question “mama Janet” re Homeland’s embrace of – and top security clearance given to – the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia – http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JqV5QwbWeXw…You read it right, and will hopefully hear it too!

So with the above firmly implanted in mind, pay heed to the following warning, thus internalizing how it came to pass that totalitarian thought police – leftists and Islamists – are setting America’s (the west’s) agenda, and what patriots intend to do about it, if anything.

‘Do conservatives need yet another lesson on why we are losing the war for the hearts and minds of people?’

There was yet another lesson yesterday.  If you think about where we were say twenty-five years ago and where we are today, where will we be twenty years from now?

Unless we fight this one-way street of “tolerance” conservatism and the by products of conservatism, namely freedom and liberty, will be dead in this nation.

What has happened?

Yesterday, Jason Collins, a virtually unknown NBA player came out and announced he was gay.  The media that had been waiting for this all but swooned over a guy whose career has been a lot less than spectacular.

The politically correct establishment wasted no time throwing themselves all over this unknown player.   Barack Obama tweeted support for Collins and called him to admire his courage.  Funny, Obama has not been able to call or even acknowledge Chris Kyle and his tragic death or Brian Terry.   These men lived and died for this nation and they do not receive any recognition from the White House but some obscure basketball player who decides to announce he is gay does.

The biggest blowback came on ESPN.  ESPN is owned by Disney, which is notorious in its left wing bias.  Commenting on the “news” of Collins coming out, two analysts discussed the impact of it.  One was LZ Granderson.  Granderson is openly gay.  The other was Chris Broussard.  Granderson of course spoke of this “event” in glowing terms.  Then came Broussard’s turn.  He offered his opinion.

Broussard’s opinion was deemed so outrageous that ESPN has apologized for it and there is now a massive campaign to have Broussard fired for expressing his opinion.

What did Broussard say?

Here’s what Chris Broussard said:

I’d like to second what LZ said. “I’m a Christian. I don’t agree with homosexuality. I think it’s a sin, as I think all sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is. [ESPN’s] L.Z. [Granderson] knows that. He and I have played on basketball teams together for several years. We’ve gone out, had lunch together, we’ve had good conversations, good laughs together. He knows where I stand and I know where he stands. I don’t criticize him, he doesn’t criticize me, and call me a bigot, call me ignorant, call me intolerant.

In talking to some people around the league, there’s a lot Christians in the NBA and just because they disagree with that lifestyle, they don’t want to be called bigoted and intolerant and things like that. That’s what LZ was getting at. Just like I may tolerate someone whose lifestyle I disagree with, he can tolerate my beliefs. He disagrees with my beliefs and my lifestyle but true tolerance and acceptance is being able to handle that as mature adults and not criticize each other and call each other names…

Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly premarital sex between heterosexuals, if you’re openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits, it says that’s a sin. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality, adultery, fornication, premarital sex between heterosexuals, whatever it may be, I believe that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I do not think the Bible would characterize them as a Christian.

Chris Broussard expressed a traditional view of morality.  He did not demand that Jason Collins be stoned, fired or even suffer any repercussions as a result of his decision.

Within hours, the hashtag #firechrisbroussard was trending on Twitter.  Liberals were in apoplexy that someone had dared to disagree with the political correctness that dictates we must agree without dissent.

Chris Broussard made an excellent argument for tolerance the way it should be.  What we have seen is the way tolerance is practiced by the left.

There is another more important lesson we need to learn here.

There are far more people under 30 who watch ESPN and have their opinions formed or at least influenced by that channel than watch Fox News or listen to talk radio.  Fortunately more people watch ESPN than watch MSNBC either.  But then again, the Cooking Channel has higher ratings than MSNBC!

Most of the under 30 crowd is being sent a message by the left.  That message is either you agree with us or you disagree with us.  If you disagree with us you are a despicable homophobe and a few other things.   Chris Broussard had a simple message.  His message was I disagree with Jason Collins but I will be tolerant of him.  The left’s message was if you do not agree with us, we will destroy you.

We fight for freedom and liberty.  If Jason Collins wants to be gay and public about it, freedom means that he can do that.  Freedom also means that Chris Broussard can disagree with that call.

If we do not find ways to start reaching the under 30 demographic with the concepts of freedom and liberty, the left will own them as they move into middle age.

Stunningly, the under 30 demographic is strongly pro-Obama.  Right now, unemployment among those under 30 is 50%.  One half of all college graduates cannot find full time jobs.  Ten years ago, when the GOP was in charge, 90% of college graduates were employed.   Unfortunately conservatives and the GOP do a terrible job of messaging and this message is not reaching those under 30.

If we do not find ways to reach them with the message of freedom, liberty, free markets and prosperity, we will fulfill Ronald Reagan’s warning that we will be sitting around in our old age telling our children and our grandchildren what it was like to live in America with it was a free and a prosperous nation.

http://www.teapartynation.com/forum/topics/another-lesson-in-modern-tolerance . Do take a peek at what happens when even a groveling media pundit attempts to apologize for his “insensitivity” to leftist dogma/thought police –http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/05/howard-kurtz-fired-cnn-reliable-sources_n_3219008.html…their wrath is swift and massive, as Howard Kurtz gets fired. Orwell’s universe….personally have no such issues, as this blogger/op-ed writer is under no one’s boot!

Despite all of the self evident truths there is another “delicate” matter which requires further outing. It more than begs the question: with the U.S. falling off the economic cliff; urban jihad smacking America’s shores; the Mid-East poised for (literal) hell fire; why in the world did the anti-American Commander-in-Chief take time to call an NBA player who “came out”? Now, far be it from this blogger to be unsympathetic to said “confessions” (sarcasm off…), but it is totally inexplicable for any POTUS to make such a (publicly announced) call – or maybe not….considering where his heart throb really lies – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/21/the-continued-adventures-of-the-down-low-potus-his-previous-body-double-reggie-love-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ . To be sure, there is nothing to be gained politically from sucking up to the homosexual community, after all, what are they gonna do, punish him at the polls? 

So viewed under this microscopic prism, the question is flipped upside its head: how could he NOT call…fist bumps and all? Recall, he does have a “thing” for basketball players, and he is more than excited about any opportunity to poke a finger at Conservative America in the process. Most essentially, he is daring “Middle America” to question the why’s and wherefore’s of his preferences; both on a personal level and regarding his true political alliances – reds & greens.

Do you dare?

Besides, who among us hasn’t taken one for the “home team”? – http://www.wnd.com/2013/05/nbas-jason-collins-gay-superhero/…as “gayness” becomes the new big thing among the progressive set. Hell no, the Jason Collin’s of the world won’t fade quietly into twilight’s mist…they too shall prevail! The new “civil rights’s” train marches onward and upward…you can’t make this crap up.

Lest the readers think the above is a whole lot of hooey and phooey, this is what the Gay-in-Chief had to say about Collins’s “heroic” self outing, and CBS News describes it thusly: “President Obama told reporters he ‘couldn’t be prouder’ of NBA player Jason Collins, who one day earlier announced he was gay. Mr. Obama said Collins is ‘a role model’ to be able to say, ‘I’m still 7-foot-tall and can bang with Shaq, and deliver a hard foul.’”

Ahh…the multi-flavored/textured rewards of sodomy!

PM Netanyahu’s CONTINUAL Islamic (& Leftist) Appeasement Endangers The National Interest…Intersecting With Jihadists In America…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Lurking in the background always awaits a monumental, catastrophic and earth shaking price for national submission, and Boston’s jihad is one such explosive extraction. For if not for American leadership’s (an indictment of both parties) tolerance of (and in some instances collusion) Wahhabi-infused mosques all over the nation, the Chechen jihadists would have been left spitting in the wind, despite their desire to “please” their Pagan Allah – https://adinakutnicki.com/2013/04/26/us-western-wahhabi-jihad-mosques-bostons-intersection-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

Similarly, Israel’s appeasement after the 1967 war  (despite a hard fought win which was so spectacular in its CLEAR cut results…still studied in warfare colleges for its brilliant campaign http://www.au.af.mil/au/aul/bibs/six.htm) is reverberating till today –  https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/10/04/israelijewish-appeasement-know-no-bounds-how-many-jews-have-to-die-others-humiliated-for-the-leadership-to-reverse-course-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ . As a result, no rest for the weary….exhausting…Most intrinsically, there is no shelf life to submission for it always comes back to haunt, regardless of the methods employed. 

So, once again, Jews (MK’s too are given the boot) are ordered: stay off Judaism’s holiest site -(http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Society_&_Culture/geo/Mount.html) otherwise World War Three will ensue…as if it hasn’t started already, paradoxically due to western appeasement – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/07/world-war-3s-place-markers-set-up-through-barack-hussein-obamas-mid-east-fires-addendum-to-northeast-intelligence-network-posits-a-direct-nexus-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ !

‘Bibi Capitulates To Muslim Threats, Orders Feiglin Off Temple Mount’

The Waqf threatened Netanyahu with “World War Three” should Feiglin go on the Mount on Monday.

For the past ten years, MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud-Beitenu) has been visiting the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on the 19th of the Hebrew month, every month. But on Sunday, April 28, 2013, Feiglin received a phone call from Deputy Commander Moshe Barkat, Chief of the Israeli Police David Precinct, which includes the Old City of Jerusalem.

He informed me that, on direct order from the prime minister, I would not be permitted to enter the Mount tomorrow,” MK Feiglin wrote in his Facebook page.

A source close to Feiglin told The Jewish Press that the deputy commander told the MK that the Waqf, the Jordanian charity organization which runs the Temple Mount, warned the Prime Minister’s office that should Feiglin go up on the Mount on Monday, it would “start World War Three.”

No one wants that. Except that the same Waqf has been cautioning about new world wars frequently, and is often involved in organizing, rather than trying to prevent them.

According to Feiglin, the prime minister has no legal authority to give such an order, because it violates three basic laws:

1. Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty, which gives each person freedom of movement, and requires the state to protect this right.

2. Basic Law: The Knesset, which grants every MK complete immunity in carrying out his duties.

3. Basic Law: Jerusalem, which says: “The sacred sites shall be protected from desecration and any other violation and from anything likely to violate the freedom of access of the religionists to the sites they hold sacred, or their feelings concerning those sites.”

Also: “Any and all authority applying to the area of Jerusalem that is granted by law to the State of Israel or the Jerusalem Municipality, shall not be transferred to a foreign entity, political or governmental, whether permanently or temporarily.”

“The only legal way to prevent me from going up to the Temple Mount tomorrow (without changing existing law),” says MK Feiglin, “is if, in the opinion of the officer in charge of the place there exists an immediate, clear and present danger.”

But, having given him the warning a full day in advance, Feiglin argues, security forces should have ample time—had the prime minister only told them so—to organize and prevent dangerous gathering and violence.

According to MK Feiglin, the Prime Minister’s decision “confirms what I was told by the police command when I asked to tour the Dome of the Rock, that the Temple Mount is under Muslim sovereignty.”

This unfortunate decision, writes Feiglin, can be added to reports this week about transferring broad supervisory authority to UNESCO in Jerusalem, as well as the reality of a de facto construction freeze in Jerusalem, as Housing Minister Uri Ariel warned last week.

The source close to Feiglin says the MK will obey Netanyahu’s directive, but that as of tomorrow Feiglin would no longer be voting the Likud-Beitenu party line.

“When, just before Jerusalem Liberation Day, the Prime Minister orders an Israeli Knesset member that—contrary to Israeli law— he not to go up to the Temple Mount, it means that the Prime Minister has officially and openly revoked Israeli sovereignty on the Mount and given it to the Muslim Waqf,” MK Feiglin wrote.

“This is an entirely new situation, more severe than before, and I must consider now how to force the Prime Minister to respect the sovereignty of the State of Israel in its capital Jerusalem,” he concluded.

Some acts of appeasement are hidden below the radar and their effects barely register among the newly submitted. Others are so “in your face” they fly off the Richter scale. Such is the case with PM Netanyahu’s (latest…in too long a line) capitulation to Jordan’s Islamist Waqf, as Israel’s PM pays further “jizya” – http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/Quran/004-jizya.htm…to “keep the peace”; a “calm” which is only in the mind of appeasers, the likes of which Americans experienced through Boston’s jihad. Pretending that what is isn’t is a recipe for further Islamic extortion, without even receiving the actual “peace”! A bargain with the Islamic devil…

Yet if you believe that PM Netanyahu’s appeasement-train is slowing down, think again. Ponder the following, and you will glean the mental sickness gripping Israel’s top leadership. It is not a pretty picture.

‘Palestinian who murdered an Israeli man was just out of jail’ DEBKAfile April 30, 2013

An Israeli man waiting for a lift at the Tapuach junction near Ariel was repeatedly stabbed by a Palestinian who then snatched his victim’s sidearm and shot him dead. The victim was later identified as Evyatar Borovsky, 31, father of five, from Yitzhar. The attack occurred near Ariel early Tuesday morning. The Palestinian, Salem Asad from a village north of Tulkarem, then turned the gun on Border Police officers and was shot and injured himself.  Asad was released a month ago from four years in jail for lobbing rocks and bottle bombs at passing Israeli traffic. A claim of responsibility for the attack was released by a Palestinian group over a TV network associated with Hamas.

‘Mosques to get Millions for Security, Nothing for Synagogues’

Mosques and monasteries to get millions of shekels in security to prevent ‘price tag’ vandalism. Jewish victims get nothing.

The Ministry of the Interior will invest an estimated 15 million shekels in protecting mosques and monasteries from vandals, IDF Radio (Galei Tzahal) reports. Currently, there is no plan to provide Jewish holy places with similar protection.

Minister Gidon Saar has reportedly approved funding for extra security, including security cameras, for dozens of Muslim and Christian places of worship. Among the buildings that will be protected are several that were vandalized in the past along with others that have never been vandalized, but are considered at risk due to their location.

Over recent months several mosques and monasteries have been painted with offensive graffiti or otherwise vandalized. The attacks have widely been attributed to Jewish nationalists, although few of the vandals have been identified. The trend to point to Jewish nationalists is sometimes mistaken; in one case, an attack attributed to “price tag” nationalists was later found to have been committed by Arabs.

Sagi Keisler of the Binyamin and Samaria (Shomron) Residents’ Councils asked Tuesday if Saar has any plan to provide similar protection to Jewish places of worship. He noted the recent vandalism in Mitzpeh Yericho, which included the desecration of a Torah scroll, as proof that Jewish sites have been targeted as well.

In recent years synagogues have been targeted in arson attacks in JerusalemRamle and elsewhere as well.

Keisler also suggested putting up security cameras at junctions to prevent rock attacks on motorists, and on farms to help fight the phenomenon of thefts and vandalism targeting Jewish farmers.

“If the Minister of the Interior managed to get a sum of 15 million shekels of taxpayer moneyfrom residents of Israel, and Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria, in order to care for Arab property, do we not deserve a similar investment in the protection of our bodies and property?” he asked.

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/167414#.UYDB57X-Fn1 …their insanity is boundless.

Despite the above, Americans (westerners) should still learn Israel’s hard fought lessons as to “hardening targets”; “mop ups”; and attendant security measures. But don’t believe for a nanosecond that Israel’s political leaders have a clue how to assert a national spine and secure Israel’s long-range national interest (despite some possible short-term temporary “relief”) and honor.

Spineless leaders ALWAYS revert true to form, as evidenced by the  actual blow back – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/11/23/spineless-leaders-always-revert-true-to-formthey-cave-and-israels-leaders-are-its-poster-boys-addendum-to-israels-ship-of-fools-led-by-delusional-leadership-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/…and nothing but more terror should ever be its expected result – https://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/16/pm-netanyahus-cease-fire-and-its-deadly-results-soon-to-blow-up-in-israels-face-addendum-to-spineless-leaders-revert-true-to-form-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.

UPDATE: h/t – Americans For A Safe Israel

I Cannot Continue as if Nothing has Happened:  By Moshe Feiglin 

The following is a letter that Moshe Feiglin wrote to his Likud MK colleagues after he was barred from ascending the Temple Mount earlier this week:

Dear Friends,

(Caricature by Asher Schwartz at the JewishPress.com)
I will not be able to make the following clarifications at the faction meeting, so the right thing to do is to send them to you in writing. I will be happy to add details on a personal basis. The following facts are supported by documents and recordings.

For over a decade, I ascend to the Temple Mount – usually on the 19th of every Hebrew month – and guide the visitors there. Over the years, a basic core group has formed, whose members wait for our monthly ascent to the Temple Mount with my guidance. Two months ago, I visited the Mount for the first time as a Knesset Member. When I requested entry to the Dome of the Rock (as opposed to the El Aktza mosque, the Dome of the Rock is not a mosque) which has always been a tourist site, a friendlywakf member blocked my path and explained that entry is permitted to Moslems only. I did not argue with him and asked to call in the local police commander. To my amazement, the officer explained to me that for all practical purposes, the place is under the sovereignty of the Moslem wakf. In an answer to a letter that I sent the same day to the Chief of Israel Police, the police essentially admitted that this is the state of affairs. In other words, Israel’s sovereignty at the innermost core of Jerusalem was secretly transferred to the Moslem wakf – with no Knesset decision on the matter being made.

This is the place to explain that the wakf allows any Jew to ascend the Mount as a tourist, but doggedly fights against any show of non-Moslem affinity or sovereignty there. Any citizen or MK can ascend the Temple Mount with a camera and sunglasses, as if he had just arrived on a charter flight from Japan. But if the “tourist” will dare pray a non-Moslem prayer (thus expressing the connection of the Mount to other religions) or to stand at attention during the Memorial Day siren – or any other exhibition of non-Moslem sovereignty on the Mount – the wakf custodians will instigate pandemonium.

As I was blamed for not coordinating my visit to the Temple Mount (an action that was never demanded before) and in order to prevent derogatory remarks – I wrote to the Police Chief, to notify him that I planned to ascend to the Mount on the Sunday of Chol Hamoed Pesach – even though I am not legally required to do so. After receiving my notification, Interior Minister Aharonovitz called a meeting in his office attended by the David District Commander and legal advisors. After various clarifications, it was agreed that I would indeed ascend to the Mount on Pesach, on the date that I had requested. I arrived (with my son) happy and light-hearted on Chol Hamoed Pesach, ready for my festive ascent to the holy place. In light of the agreements with the police, I was convinced that there would be no problems and that this time – the police were prepared to make it possible for me to actualize my legal right as a citizen – and even more so – as a Knesset Member.
Sure enough, the police allowed all the Jews who had gathered that morning to enter the Temple Mount. But they asked me to wait for the District Commander. Initially, I thought that perhaps the District Commander wanted to accompany me on my visit. But instead of accompanying me, the District Commander told me that he prohibits me (and only me) from ascending, due to wakf threats of violence if I would enter the Mount. I asked the District Commander why he was surrendering to threats of violence, punishing those who conduct themselves according to law. Moreover, I am a Knesset Member, which affords me legal immunity. The District Commander’s answer was, “That’s the way it is.”

That time, as well, the police blamed me, strangely claiming that they were forced to prevent my ascent because I announced my planned visit on my Facebook page. That is a preposterous claim. I am not a private person and I do not ascend to the Temple Mount as such. I am a Knesset Member – a public representative – and it is unthinkable to demand that I conduct myself in secret.
Nonetheless, at a chance meeting with the Minister of Internal Security in the Knesset, I agreed with a heavy heart not to announce my next ascent on the 19th of Iyar on my Facebook page. I explained to Minister Aharonovitz that the media know full well that I ascend on the 19th of the month, but that I would not initiate any announcement.

This Sunday, the 18th of Iyar, the Commander of the David Region called me and told me that by “direct instruction from the Prime Minister,” I would not be allowed to ascend to the Temple Mount the following morning.

At this point, the final mask has been lifted. I could no longer evade the issue and blame lower level officials. Nobody attempted to claim that there was a local security problem. After all, I was notified the day before my planned ascent, when the Mount was completely quiet. The situation became crystal clear: The Moslem wakf terrorizes Israel’s government, decides which MKs will ascend the Mount and which will not – and it is none other than the Prime Minister who implements their directives.

This is not a personal issue. Today, the police informed the Knesset Interior Committee that was scheduled to tour the Temple Mount next Tuesday, the 27th of Iyar, Jerusalem Day Eve, that it will not be able to visit on that day or any other day – due to the wakf’s objections. Whoever represents the sovereignty of the State of Israel in the eyes of the sovereign on the Mount – the wakf, is not allowed to visit there. Once again, the wakf demand is implemented by the government of Israel.

I do not have to explain the severe significance of these events to the Knesset Members of the National Movement. All the red lines of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem have been trampled and breached. This is in addition to the infringement of the law inherent in these decisions, the violation of the Jerusalem Basic Law and other Basic Laws. These decisions make a mockery of the immunity and sovereignty afforded to Israel’s Knesset Members. We are facing a new reality that obligates us all to act in an unconventional manner.

I would like to make it clear that the last thing that I want is to find myself in a conflict with the Prime Minister, who I highly respect and am careful to honor. I clearly have nothing to gain from that. Clearly, I do not wish to create difficulties for the rest of the members of the faction. Just the opposite: When I was elected to the Knesset I made no demands. I was happy to accept the duties and tasks that were offered me and I believe that it was obvious to all that I have put every effort into giving the maximum for our common goals.
But what is all my work in the Knesset worth if the Knesset, as it turns out, surrenders Israel’s sovereignty in the heart of Jerusalem?

Who is the sovereign in Jerusalem when the Moslem wakf determines which Knesset Member is allowed or not allowed to ascend to the most holy of places – to the Temple Mount? Who exactly are we fooling? Have we forgotten our vow, “If I forget thee, Jerusalem, may my right hand be forgotten”? What is this vow worth if we ignore the terrible reality in which the wakf dictates to Israel’s government what to do on the Mount, in defiance of the law?

If we could have deceived ourselves until now that we are the sovereign and the wakf acts as an extension of our sovereignty, it has now become clear that it is the government of Israel that acts as an extension of the wakf. We are paving the way for them to rule the entire Land, as the poet of the National Movement, Uri Tzvi Greenberg, warned: “He who rules the Mount rules the Land.”
A red line has been crossed. It was forced upon me with no chance for discussion and does not allow me (and in my opinion, does not allow you, either) to continue to conduct “business as usual.” How can I face myself if, for the good of my political future, I will abandon the Temple Mount?

With a heavy heart and totally converse to my original intent, I am forced to suspend all my regular parliamentary activity. I know that we have just begun this Knesset term and we all have goals and ambitions to accomplish as much as possible. But there are moments in life when one must put everything aside and act according to his conscience. The Temple Mount, the rock of our existence, is calling us. This is the moment.
Respectfully,

Moshe Feiglin

Indeed, let this American-Israeli repeat – “If I forget thee, Jerusalem, may my right hand be forgotten”, and “He who rules the Mount rules the Land.” 

Two sides of the same Jewish Zionist coin.Simple as that!
