At this time, Sunday, March 2, 2008, Arabs are taking over a house in the 'Gibborim" (Heroes) outpost in Kiryat Arba-Hevron.
Some years ago,the building was built by Arabs without permits or permission, i.e. yet another illegal Arab building.
Since the "Battle of the Heroes", five years ago, the building has been empty.
The "Battle of the Heroes" was waged in an alley close to Kiryat Arba, when Arab terrorists killed twelve soldiers and Kiryat Arba security men, among them the army commander Dror Weinberg, HY"D and the Kiryat Arba head of security Yitzhak Boanish, HY"D.
As a Zionist response, the youth of Kiryat Arba-Hevron set up a synagogue in the patio of that building.
The synagogue was uprooted many times by the security forces.
To our shock and horror, today, Arabs came and started building, closing down the patio with cement to make an additional room to the already illegal house! And instead of them being stopped by the authorities, the security forces (IDF and Israeli police) have received instructions to protect the Arabs and allow them to build!
It is simply u-n-a-c-c-e-p-t-a-b-l-e that at a place where Jews fell, killed by Arabs, the Arabs would be rewarded and allowed to build!!
Not to talk about the fact that over the past few days the Arabs are raising their heads and Jews have been targeted and attacked all over the country - in Sderot, Netivot, Ashkelon by Arab Kassams - and on the roads in Judea and Samaria by Arab stone throwers and Molotov cocktails.
Instead of deterring the Arabs, the Olmert government is rewarding the Arab terrorists.
We must protest this insanity!
What can we do?
1) For those who live in Israel: come tonight, Sunday, at 8:30pm to the Gibborim outpost in Kiryat Arba-Hevron and join the youth who will demonstrate there.
2) For those living in Israel and abroad:
Bombard with phones and faxes:
* the office of the Machat (Commander in Chief in Hebron) whose name is Yehuda Fuchs and demand he immediately stop the illegal and immoral Arab building at the site.
His phone number 972-2-9967200
His fax: 972-2-9967395
Yes, you can send faxes in English, too. Every fax helps. Every phone call helps. Don't bother with emails.
They might tell you that "the land is really Arab land". Even if that were true, which is not proven, that is no reason to let Arabs build there. We Jews have thousands of dunams of Jewish land all over Judea and Samaria, and we are not allowed to build and expand on them. So why are Arabs allowed to?
* the office of Shas Minister Eli Yishai fax 972-2-6662202
or call one of his aids Shlomo Levi 972-50-624-0933
Tell the Shas people that only if they leave the government, this disgrace will be put to an end.
* for those living abroad - call your Congressmen.
Our brother's blood is crying out from the earth.
We cannot stay quiet!
