Russian Jews Urge Netanyahu to Ignore U.S. Jews' Call for Ceding Land
Baltimore Jewish Life ^ | 4/9/13 | staff

One hundred Russian Jewish notables urged Benjamin Netanyahu to ignore recent pleas by American Jews calling on the Israeli prime minister to cede land for peace.

In an open letter from Russia published Tuesday, the Russian Jews wrote that their message was a reaction to the April 3 letter initiated by the dovish Israel Policy Forum by 100 American Jews, including philanthropists Charles Bronfman, Danny Abraham, Lester Crown and Stanley Gold, and former U.S. Undersecretary of Defense Dov Zakheim.

Among the signers of the Russian letter were the president of the Russian Jewish Congress, Yuri Kanner, and businessman Mikhail Fridman, one of the organization’s founders. Others included Pinchas Goldschmidt, a chief rabbi of Moscow and president of the Conference of European Rabbis.

“We, the Russian Jews, are committed to the secure and stable future of Israel no less than our American coreligionists,” the response letter from Moscow read.

“It is therefore that we believe that the decisions of the Head of the Government of Israel on critical issues should be taken for the sake of people of Israel only, based exclusively on Israel’s assessment of the situation. Decisions on national security issues must not be made under external pressure, regardless of its origins: world public opinion, U.S. leaders or even influential American Jews.”

“How horrible, fantastic, incredible it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas-masks here because of a quarrel in a far away country between people of whom we know nothing. It seems still more impossible that a quarrel which has already been settled in principle should be the subject of war.” — Neville Chamberlain, September 27, 1938

Some people never learn. American liberals are at the top of the list.

Yup. I guess I gotta say that I concur with the Russian Jews on this one.

“One hundred Russian Jewish notables urged Benjamin Netanyahu to ignore recent pleas by American Jews calling on the Israeli prime minister to cede land for peace”

Ceding land for “peace” opens the door to the Antichrist, as per Daniel 8:23-25, 9:26-27, 11:39-41 and brings on the wrath of God as per Joel 3:1-2.

The Russian Jews are correct.

But it is prophesied and it will happen, and it will bring on the Tribulation.

By all means, do as the American Jews say, give land for Peace. Give them New York City.

In the wake of President Obama’s visit to Israel last month, the American Jews in their letter asked Netanyahu to take steps to represent Israel’s “readiness to make painful territorial sacrifices for the sake of peace.” They said they wrote the letter “as Americans deeply committed to Israel’s security.”

People who would write something like this either are completely ignorant of Israel’s resent history or care nothing for the continued existence of Israel.

Relinquishing land to the Palestinians in return for peace has always resulted in escalated violence from the Palestinians in return. The Israelis cede control over the West Bank to the Palestinians and what did they get in return? Thousands of missiles launched from the West Bank killing Israelis.

Any Israeli leader that cedes a single square foot of territory to the Palestinians should be hanged as a traitor.

Benjamin, you are not authorized to give His land away. Deals to appease the dark-side are going to lead to unprecedented disaster for everyone involved.

Apparently, Russian Jews unlike American Jews have not been brainwashed by Communists?

I’m glad that they are supporting Israel, but I wish they would do it from within the Land. No telling how long it will be before the gate shuts again!

Too many Russians in Israel already (up to a third of Israel’s population). Even more in armed forces. Bill Clinton once told them to get back home because he see Russian Jews as a main obstacle to peace talks.

“Bill Clinton once told them to get back home because he see Russian Jews as a main obstacle to peace talks.”

Bill Clinton and his jihadi-whore “wife” were some of the biggest obstacles to JEWS STAYING ALIVE.
