Winning back the Land of Israel

It's our solemn duty to do our best to preserve our security in the Land of Israel, and to win back those parts of our homeland that we've lost control of, such as Joseph's Gravesite in Shechem.

Scheduled for today is another uncalled-for provocation, an outright defamation of Jerusalem's sanctity. In the name of liberty and democracy, 3000 people will publicly flaunt their same-sex attractions in the streets of Jerusalem this afternoon, with full government support and protection. There's no difference between this Impurade and a ham-and-bacon festival on the sidewalks of the holiest city on earth, homeland of a people who live by the eternal Holy Torah that forbids eating ham and bacon.

We certainly have no right nor any desire to tell others how to live their lives or what to do behind closed doors. But there are light years of difference between whatever consenting adults do with their free will behind closed doors and between making a nauseating public display of Torah-prohibited abominations on the streets of Jerusalem.

Achmedinejad and his nukes don't scare me. Neither does Nasrulla and the Hizbulla. But such public debauchery here in the Holy City of Jerusalem is terrifying. As much as individual liberty and free choice must be maintained, there's the responsibility of our special privilege of living here. This parade of an expected 3,000 participants is not only a slap in the face to half a million Jerusalemites, but to people around the world. Besides, this is the worst threat to our security here in the Holy Land. How? Open up your Gemara to tractate Sanhedrin, 93a: "The Lord of Israel despises debauchery." When we need so much Divine compassion, who is so daft as to arouse Divine wrath? That's national suicide! In the name of 'free speech'? Why not play Russian Roulette for those who so desire in the Western Wall Plaza? That's free expression too...

The Islamic media is having a field day with such pink-promoted policies here in Israel. Whenever any society became decadent, it crumbled from within. Our hostile neighbors therefore hope for a big turnout at the Impurade.

The key to holding on to the Land of Israel is personal and national holiness. Anyone who preserves personal holiness (Shmirat HaBrit) is a true warrior with the spiritual power to overcome all adversaries. One who doesn't preserve personal holiness will be enslaved by his enemies just as he's enslaved by his own evil inclination. With this in mind, a person clearly is not fit to rule a nation if he can't rule over his own evil inclination.

With the above in mind, join me on Mount Gerizim overlooking Joseph the Tzaddik's holy gravesite in Schechem:
