As I'm writing this, jet fighters are screaming overhead, on the way to one of Israel's hotspots, which today includes every single border. We need unbelievable Divine compassion at this time. Desecrating Hashem's Name is not the way to get it...
Imagine what a worldwide uprising there would be if Israeli television made fun of the Koran or any one of the rituals that Islam holds as holy. But no, that would never happen.
Imagine if Iran or Syria ever ridiculed the Torah or one of its mitzvoth. Jews around the world would be yelling "Anti-Semitism!" and bloody murder. But no, even the murderers of Damascus and Tehran would not do such a thing.
Why is the self-degrading, self hating, secular leftist media in Israel allowed to desecrate and defame the very Torah and mitzvoth that give them their only right to be here in the holy Land of Israel? Normally, we hear at the Beams ignore their ignorance, but this time, they went too far.
The Torah prohibits the desecration of Hashem's Name, what's known as chilul Hashem. If a person witnesses the desecration of Hashem's Name, yet fails to protest, it is tantamount to actively violating this prohibition. We hate to say anything bad about anyone, but leftist-controlled Israel Channel 12 and their disgusting satirical program Eretz Nehederet leave us no choice. During a program two nights ago, they crossed every red line of self-hatred in a way that surpasses the worst antisemitism. As you see in the image above, they mocked the sacred mitzva of tefillin and Jewish Home Chairman and Minister of Education Naftali Bennett, a Sabbath-observant Jew and an former officer in IDF Special Forces. Look how the Nazis laugh at tefillin in the juxtaposed image from the Holocaust. Israel's Channel 12 has outdone them. Democracy or no democracy, if the Israeli Government doesn't shut them down, then they too are guilty of desecrating Hashem's Name.
When the Romans burned the holy martyr Hanina ben Tardion in a Torah scroll, he said, "He Who will avenge the holy Torah will avenge me as well." Naftali, happy are you that you have been ridiculed together with tefillin; He Who avenges the honor of tefillin shall avenge yours as well.
We don't watch TV. But the tax money we pay here in Israel keeps such monsters as Channel 12 on the air. We demand that the Israeli Government shut them down immediately. There is no teshuva for Chilul Hashem, only Kiddush Hashem. The only way Chennel 12 can save itself from stern judgments above is if it becomes a Jewish Outreach TV station. Anything less than that won't work. And, whoever keeps them on the air cannot say that they are clean of this heinous transgression. May Hashem help us.
