Fiyaz Mughal's Tell Mama UK loses court case against Tim Burton of Liberty GB

The saga continues...

As most of you will have heard by now, the grievance mongering taqqiya artist, Fiyaz Mughal of Tell Mama UK and Faith Matters, has lost the court case against Mr. Tim Burton of Liberty GB.

Mr. Mughal had originally accused Mr. Tim Burton of "Aggravated Racial Harassment", a crime for which Mr. Burton was wrongfully arrested and charged with. But when the case reached our "infidel - Kuffar" courts, the judge not only decided to throw the case out of the window but made several accurate points towards the Plaintiff, Mr. Mughal, including stating that he is an individual who is intolerant of criticism to his person and/or his organizations, and also of bullying and harassing his critics

All this was concluded despite the fact that Mr. Mughal decided not to appear  in court, but through a video-link, claiming he felt intimidated by Tim Burton and his supporters. Even through a video-link the judge could see the nefarious intentions behind the man. Got to give this judge some credit for that! 

The judge also pointed out to Mr. Mughal that the comments mentioned on the social network twitter were not harassment, least of all "racial", since Muslims do not form part of any race in particular. Ironically Mr. Mughal had to be taught of what harassment means in English language. 

Here is the definition of harassment:

Aggressive pressure or intimidation, persecution, harrying, pestering, badgering, bothering, annoying, irritating, and molesting someone.  

Since Mr. Burton did nothing of the sort, the case was thrown out of court.

Mr. Mughal however is guilty of all these things above. He heads grievance mongering organizations which employ (even if on a voluntary basis) racist people to intimidate, persecute, harass, pester and bother individuals who are pro-Israel.

He also founded companies to promote himself. We should have a quick look into Mr. Mughal's profile.

Amongst his organizations are: Tell Mama UK, Faith Matters, Conciglio CIC,  etc. Here is an overview of some of his companies. It is possible that he may have closed some already and opened others.

Here is another company Mr. Mughal is associated with. "Holocaust Memorial Day Trust". Perhaps Mr. Mughal is not only trying to cash in on the Jewish holocaust but also attempting to link himself to Jews in order to make him look somewhat "respectable" and "genuine" in his quests. Who knows? 

It looks like Mr. Mughal also "employed" an organization called Journalista to promote himself as a leading spokesman for the Muslim community, on "interfaith" issues. The tax payers' money allocated to Mr. Mughal for his "works" have gone a long way...but only to promote himself and his so-called "work".

Here is the goal of Journalista

And WHO may be the director of this Journalista group, you may ask?
Here is your answer:

That's right. None other than the very Fiyaz Mughal himself. Surprised?

Mr. Fiyaz Mughal does not like criticism to his person, nor does he like to be exposed as the phoney that he is. Furthermore he has issues with those who are pro-Israel and speak against Islam. We know this by his actions. 

One of them was to get his cronies to harass the Home Office to ban Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from coming to the UK. And we all know that the only things Pamela and Robert are guilty of are of being Humanitarians who work for the Human Rights of all people, including Apostates (Muslims who left Islam), and for Freedom of Speech, something Mughal seems to be strongly against.

Mr. Mughal has tried to sue several pro-Israel individuals. We will list the ones we know about:

One of them is Mrs. Ambrosine Shitrit from Yad b'Yad UK, referred here as "The Jewish Woman", something she is not very happy about, and with reason. 
Ms. Ambrosine, who does wonderful work reporting, monitoring and exposing anti-Semitism, was threatened with a "libel" case for simply telling the truth, that Mughal was trying "to silence and shut down pro-Israel and Jewish advocates." 

Mr. Mughal also threatened to sue Mr. Atma Singh for "libel" when Mr. Singh mentioned that "Tell Mama UK provides a platform for Fascism".  

Again, an innocent man threatened with "libel" for simply telling the truth. Mr. Singh was once the adviser to Mr. Ken Livingstone. 

Here are some of the exchanges between them. Note that Mr. Singh did not tag anyone, but Ms. Lejla Kuric , who is a Muslim supporter of Tell Mama UK, promptly tagged them for some "support". 

Here we see Ms. Lejla Kuric and Mr. Fiyaz Mughal using Tell Mama UK twitter, stealthily threatening Mr. Atma Singh. You can hardly miss it. These people like to dramatize things to such an extreme as to make a storm in a glass of water.

And as Mr. Singh mentioned, they did have a big fight in their hands. Mr. Mughal was unable to take Mr. Singh to court so far, but that still did not stop him trying to intimidate, harass and attempt to sue others, all of which he has failed.

Another example is Ms. Sheryl McNaught. Mr. Mughal also tried to sue Ms. McNaught for alleged "libel" when she mentioned that "he was suing Jews". Once more, another innocent woman being threatened with "libel" for simply telling the truth.

Last but not least, Mr. Mughal also tried to sue us, the JDL, for simply telling the truth, of course. 
In fact, Mr. Mughal also tried to force us into apologizing for stating the truth about him and his organizations while "demanding" compensation of about £30,000.00. Our barrister told him to "jog on" in other words. 

In addition to the obscene amount he tried to claim for himself, stating "damage to his reputation" (Although his reputation, if he had one, was already in tatters) his solicitor Farooq Bajwa, who is the representative of the anti-Semitic and rabidly anti-Zionist Iranian Press TV, also tried to claim over £15,000.00 in "legal fees".
But when our barrister challenged these "fees" he failed to provide concrete evidence and thus failed in his pursuit of a court case.

The ironic thing is that we, the JDL, were the first to expose Mr. Mughal and his phoney companies, back in January 2013, then when Mr. Andrew Gilligan exposed him also on the Daily Telegraph in June 2013,  others quickly followed. 

This of course, greatly helped our case against Mughal, who realized that taking us to court would be a terrible move.

At the same time, Mr. Mughal hides behind his "relationships" with the "Jewish" organization, CST - Community Security Trust, which he uses to give his companies some sort of legitimacy. 

We have previously written about the CST Here, Here, Here and Here where we exposed the CST for working AGAINST Jewish interests and betraying the Jewish people, not only through its affiliations with dodgy groups like Tell Mama and Faith Matters, but also through the misleading information they have been propagating to the Jewish community in general.

Perhaps they still don't know that Fiyaz Mughal has written articles for the rabid anti-Semitic/Jew hating Islamic "Cordoba foundation"? Or perhaps this does not bother them?

This man is a phoney. He claims to support Jews and to be against anti-Semitism but we have proven time and time again that this is all "Taqqiya" (deceit) from his part. Just look at the company this man keeps!

Even his group called MA'AS (Muslims against Anti-Semitism) is phoney. He created this group in November 2010 and all he could do with it was to write one single article on the blog. That's it. See below:

In addition to all this, Mughal is still currently associated with some very nasty individuals. Most of them are used to harass, intimidate and persecute people online, mainly on twitter sphere. 

Let's take Jason Schumann for example. Picture below.
 Homosexual Jason uses the alias of "debating culture" on twitter. He also uses another alias as "efemico" for European Forum for Ethnic Minority Individuals, Communities and Organizations, which is the group he created.

He registered a domain under his real name and the address he gives above is the same address where TellMama receives "donations". Check it out below.

This Jason Schuman likes to claim he has "Jewish" roots, but we know he hasn't. Also he is a very abusive and racist character. Jason is not pure black or a Jew, but he is gay, so yes, he is a racist for saying the below.

Jason Schuman is a vile character who has been constantly targetting Mrs. Shitrit from YadB'YadUK, as well as several Jews and other pro-Israel people.

So much hate, so much intolerance! And THIS is the man who is intimately linked to Fiyaz Mughal. Do you still believe TellMamaUK or Faith Matters are professional organizations? Do you still believe Fiyaz Mughal can be trusted?

Then we have this abyssal creature, an old hag called Evelyn Cook, who uses the alias of "Nemesis Republic" and "YapYapUK" on Twitter.

The photo below is of bad quality but it was taken from this website, where this nasty creature posted one of her "poems". By the way, the "YapYap" account she created was in mockery of YadB'Yad UK. This means she is mocking those who expose anti-Semitism and act to eradicate it.

 Evelyn is responsible for the harassment and intimidation of several pro-Israel people, including Mrs. Ambrosine Shitrit, Ms. Sheryl MacNaught, and others. She also tried with the JDL but we don't feed this troll, and have blocked her a long time ago. Here we see Evelyn Cook defending paedophilia.  She then goes on a tirade against the writer of the blog which exposed her as a sick individual.


There is also Yvonne Ridley, a George Galloway "Respect" party member, who says "Zionists should be hunted down". She loathes Israel and loves Hamas. She is a good friend of Fiyaz Mughal of TellMamaUK and Faith Matters.


Her twitter profile is as per below: It says "If you are not radicalised yet it's because you haven't been paying attention..." So this woman supports terrorism and anti-Semitism. Mr. Mughal is in great company indeed.

There are hundreds of nasty people who are in the close circle of friends of Mr. Fiyaz Mughal, but we do not have the space to add them all here. However, such evidence can be provided if necessary at some point. 

It is interesting to note that for a man who claims to be against all sorts of harassment, hate, racism and intolerance, he projects through his persona and connections, all the things he claims to be against. One should really pay close attention to this individual and the web of deceit that lies within him. 


Here, Fiyaz Mughal has been making claims that the "BNP" and "English Defence League" were behind 54% of the attacks against Muslims, and that his organization has been responsible for achieving arrests of some 21 EDL supporters, but so far has been unable to prove it. He accuses people of "Islamophobia" when people point out the evils of Islam and the evil actions of Muslims when they follow the Quran to the letter. 


To Mughal, this is Islamophobia.  Although Islamophobia is not a crime (Is it a crime to fear anything or Islam?) he uses this leftist-worded-tactic to target individuals who speak out against the cruelties committed by the Islamic world. By doing that, Mughal is attempting to white-wash Muslim crimes. 


At the same time, Mr. Mughal attempts to explain that the general anger against Muslims is because of lack of housing, or employment amongst the White working class majority.

 He is thus playing down our citizens' real concerns while at the same time denigrating the British White working class. You can see this visibly in an open letter he wrote to Baroness Sayeeda Warsi. 

We believe Mr. Mughal has a lot to hide. For example, he used to write quite frequently for a website called MPACUK, which in itself is anti-Semitic. Now however, when you search for any of the articles he wrote, they have disappeared. We did a search on it and this is what comes up:

The above are cached articles he wrote but when you click on any of these "cached" articles, they are not there, for this is the message that appears on the website. 

Now, why would Fiyaz Mughal be so desperate to DELETE all these articles he wrote? We believe it is because he is afraid that the public will finally see the disgusting things he wrote about the British people. In one of these articles, he actually blamed the Brits for the 7/7 bombing, using "British foreign policy and the Afghanistan war" as "explanations" for the behaviour of Muslim suicide bombers, as if their terrorist ways did not date from over 1400 years. 

All one needs to do is read the Quran and Hadiths where it is littered with accounts of terrorism performed by Muslims against non-Muslims, i.e. Jihad, and with the cruelties they engaged on, principally their fake prophet Muhammad (May his soul, if he has one, be cursed for all eternity).

The net is closing... we are joining the dots.

And finally, you may have heard that Mr. Peter Tatchell has joined TellMamaUK as a patron. 

 Peter Tatchell who defended paedophilia, is now under attack from the Muslims who support TellMama, but for actually speaking out against Islam. Seems that all is not well in "paradise"... See below some twitter exchanges.

Pro-Palestinian Hackers Target Israeli NGO Site for Children with Cancer

An Arab branch of the international hackers' movement Anonymous is threatening to mount a large scale cyberattack on Israeli government websites on April 7.

Source: Israel National News
A similar attack took place last year on April 7. Israeli government web sites came under heavy attack on that day, but the hackers failed to bring down any Israeli sites, the Foreign Ministry said on April 7, 2013.

A Ministry spokesperson said that users had been unable to access its site for several seconds Sunday afternoon. The situation was corrected, and all Israeli government sites were running as usual. According to the Ministry, Israeli experts had successfully fought back the attacks, with the cooperation of internet service providers.

The hackers' group claimed at the time that 9,000 Israeli Facebook accounts were hacked, and that personal details of students from Haifa University were compromised, as were hundreds of passwords to Israeli email accounts. However, terrorism commentator Yoni Alpher said that the damage to government and security-related websites had been minor: sites were slowed down or hacked for short periods of time, he explained, and the data that was compromised had not been significant.

One of the primary targets of the attack was Larger than Life, an NGO for children with cancer.

"The website of Larger than Life has been under attack from pro-Palestinian hackers for a week," Larger than Life wrote on its Facebook page several days after the attack began, "and every day they take down our site and plant different content – flags, a skull, symbols and all sorts of hate-related things."

"It is too bad that this is happening, of all places, to a website for an organization whose purpose is one of love, and assistance to every cancer stricken child under treatment in Israel, without differentiating on the basis of religion, race or nationality."

Facebook Approves Nazi Style Propaganda to Demonize Israel

The middle class, wannabe thug, far left and anti-Israel group Antifa have sunk to yet another new low in one of their countless attempts to demonize the state of Israel.

On the Facebook page of West London Antifa, they posted a picture of a demonic rat set against the backdrop of the flag of Israel.

It looks like a piece of propaganda taken straight from the pages of Der Sturmer:

Note the similarities to the propaganda the used by Nazi's against the Jews. So blatantly obvious, they don't even bother hide their venomous Antisemitism anymore.

When a complaint was filed with Facebook to have the photo removed, Facebook (who take down countless Counter Jihad pages for pathetic reasons) found nothing wrong with the photo:

The Erev Rav Rabbis of London who ignore victims of abuse and cover up the actions of the abusers

As this week we celebrated the International Women's day, we decided to post a story that should wake up the London Jewish Community, and bring awareness about the actions of some so-called "Rabbis", who claim to stand up for the victims of abuse, including of domestic violence, but who do not act exactly as they claim to.

It concerns two Prominent United Synagogue "Rabbis" - "Rabbi" Harvey Belovski from the Golders Green Synagogue and former candidate for Chief Rabbi, and "Rabbi" David Mason of Muswell Hill, who have been complicit in furthering a harassment campaign over a community member.

Recently the Jewish Women's Aid (JWA) organization, a group that works with and supports victims of Domestic Violence, achieved the support of the community rabbis but the hypocrisy of these rabbis in particular only gives women a false sense of security and leads to private anguish. 

The JWA do a fantastic work for victims of domestic violence, and I would personally recommend anyone suffering from this kind of abuse to contact them. They have done wonders for many women I know, and for their families, and we strongly support and commend their work. These are people who are extremely professional and understand the plight of these victims, unlike the named rabbis above.

The community member in reference is a lady (Whom we will refer to as Mrs.I) who has been constantly and mercilessly harassed by her ex-husband (Whom we will refer to as MR.K), for the last 15 years, while he goes out of his way to make life a living hell for her. 

Despite the fact that both Mr.K and Mrs.I are now married to different people, Mr.K insists in continuing his campaign of harassment, and now has the help or complicity of the above mentioned rabbis. 

Prior to their divorce, Mr.K had shown extremely unstable behaviour and physically attacked Mrs.I.
In addition to the physical and mental abuse Mr.K inflicted on Mrs. I, he has also hacked into her emails, put a phone app software in their child's phone (so he could send harassing messages to other people but blame on Mrs. I) and also sent pornographic photos from Mrs.I email to the above rabbis and friends of Mrs. I. 

Through this phone app software, Mr.K sent several messages from his own computer to people linked to Mrs.I, including people she had in the past fallen out with, but the messages would show as coming from the phone where the app was installed, i.e. their child's phone, and not from the computer he was using. We can tell by this that the man is extremely dangerous and cunning.

So In July 2013 a bomb threat was received by Kinloss shul, but the message was sent to a rabbi in a neighbouring borough. Interesting to note that the rabbi who received the bomb threat in the form of a text message was "Rabbi" David Mason, an acquaintance of Mrs.I, and not the rabbi from the Kinloss shul.  Alarm bells should be ringing by now, as it would be obvious that whoever sent that message was not Mrs.I but Mr.K, who had installed the app in their child's phone, since the message was traced back to that phone.

The police informed "Rabbi" David Mason of who they thought the culprit was, and upon learning of this, "Rabbi Mason" decided to stop all contact with Mrs. I. 
When Mrs.I tried to contact him to explain the situation, and let him know who the real culprit was, he betrayed her trust and sent her email to the police, instead of listening to her at least. Interesting also to note that this "Rabbi" David Mason and Mrs.I lived together for 2 years at Hillel, so they knew each other pretty well. 

The attitude of "Rabbi" Mason beggars belief, and should worry all members of the community, for he has deliberately chosen to ignore his old friend's letters, and explanations, and instead chose to turn his back on her, thus making him complicit in such harassment.

Other rabbis, members of the board of his own shul and members of the community have also approached Rabbi Mason and asked him to listen to the "other side of the story" but he has blatantly refused to do so. One must ask WHY. 

As for "Rabbi" Harvey Belovski, he was the "rabbi" who firstly married Mr.K and Mrs.I. When all these things happened, Mrs.I and her new husband sat in Rabbi Harvey's house, cried and begged him for help. Rabbi Belovski is a witness to the abuse Mrs.I had been suffering, having himself been in receipt of pornographic emails and assisting with the "Get" process, and at the time he promised to help and give a statement to the courts - a statement simply of fact, not opinion.

However, when the time came to do what he had promised, the same Rabbi Harvey Belovski, who wrote that ”the community has a duty to report incidents to the police,” refused to provide a statement of the abuse he had personally witnessed towards this lady, citing “legal advice.”

Now, what kind of "legal advice" would stop a rabbi from telling the truth and helping a friend? 

Both of these rabbis are fully aware that this lady has suffered horrors at the hands of her ex-husband, and both of them failed miserably to provide any sort of help, despite knowing this could in effect place her much loved child into care.  Now, why would these men do such thing? Why won't they stand up for the truth and help this lady? 

Their actions are shameful, and this should worry all members of our community, for if these men are calling themselves rabbis, and exercising authority on that basis, then they are expected to behave in an appropriate manner, they are expected to stand for what is true, for what is just, and NOT to become complicit in the further harassment of this lady. Their actions are simply unjustifiable and intolerable! 

This lady has suffered many years of domestic violence, and has been supported for many years by the wonderful work of JWA.  Her ex-husband on the other hand, plays the "Jewish" card to his advantage, demanding kosher food whilst in prison.  And even though she is now remarried and settled,  her ex-husband continues a campaign of harassment by proxy and third party, constantly contacting the police with false allegations, social services, the NSPCC etc.  

This is likely to end up in the Crown Court, with a community "Rabbi" on one side and a Jewish domestic violence victim on the other. Based on the facts above, we should question the role that these two rabbis play in family matters and decide if we really want them representing us in positions of authority.

G-d forbid, this could happen to any of us!

We are writing this story now because we are worried about this lady, and we hope that for her sake the truth will come out quickly, so that she and her family can resume their family life together and move on. 

The actions of these rabbis is an utter embarrassment to the whole community and we sincerely hope that they will step up to defend and support her against these allegations before the media decides to pick up on this story. And as we all know, the media loves "Jews on Jews" dirty laundry. 

The issue here however is far more serious than that. If these rabbis sit and do nothing, this lady could end up losing the child she absolutely adores and does everything for, just because of their appalling complacency, and unwillingness to speak the truth in public.  

Perhaps it is time we should all ponder on these facts and decide if we really wish people like that to represent us.

We in the JDL take no pleasure in exposing Jews from our own community, but it would be against our principles if we too sat down and did nothing while we observe such actions unfold before our eyes.
We simply cannot turn our backs on those who need our help. This is what being Jewish is about. 

We care deeply for the people of our community. We care deeply for Jews everywhere. However, we are in desperate need of Rabbis who can truly show courage, firmness, and true leadership. Unfortunately  there aren't many anymore.

Our so-called "Rabbis" are more interested in profiting from the new trend called "Interfaith dialogue" and engaging themselves with delusional crap such as  "community cohesion" affairs, with the enemies of the Jewish people, while they ignore and neglect their duties as rabbis for the Jewish community.

For them it is far more important to be seen protecting mosques, and appeasing Muslims and liberals, than focusing on the job they supposedly trained to do. 
They would have learned that Domestic Violence is the cultural norm amongst their new friends, the Islamic community,but it is not and never will be the cultural norm amongst us Jews. 

People who turn a blind eye to such situations are not fit to represent us in the community. Therefore we demand they act now, and show us that they can take the responsibility that has been bestowed on them, or resign from their position. 

We don't need spineless weasels. We need strong leaders.

The Israeli heroes of the Hilltop Youth

Who are Hilltop Youth "settlers", what they fight for & why?
Written by a former Chicagoan , now a graduate student in Israel. Events transpired Jan.4 2014 in Samaria.

Why are you chasing us?

Eliezer BenGershon
Shabbos at Netzach Binyamin, Hill 904. There’s nothing quite like it. The hilltop consists of a few old stone buildings built centuries ago which now serve as homes for young Jewish pioneers. We have mattresses and a few pillows and there are only four of us so we manage to fit in the ten meter building. It’s dark and it’s cold inside yet no one seems to care at all, it’s not like we’ll be getting much sleep anyway….
                This is a new, highly contentious hilltop and therefore nighttime means that we must take turns guarding. From who? Obviously from the Arab villages a few hundred meters away…. Nope. Sadly not. It’s Friday night and we’re on the lookout for jeeps- army, police, Shabak (Israeli Security Services), you name it. Any jeep is a sign that we need to run.
                Earlier on Friday three youths were arrested near the hill after the police chased and cornered them in a nearby vineyard. They were released in Jerusalem less than an hour before Shabbat. Why were they arrested? Officially the police made up some story, but unofficially it’s understood that they wanted to make sure that the hill was Judenrein for Shabbat.  Unfortunately for them, we only came later so they didn’t catch us on their first trip to the hill. Nonetheless, we know that they’ll be back.
                We spotted the first jeep Friday night. After eating at a family in nearby Amona we began to head out towards the hill. The jeep was waiting for us at the entrance to Amona. We ran away. They followed but didn’t manage to find us among the hillside and the houses. The cat and mouse game continued for about an hour until eventually the jeep left Amona after failing to catch us.
                We made our way to the hill, well aware that more jeeps would come at some point, so we took turns guarding. There were four shifts between 11PM-7AM; I had from 1AM-3AM. Fortunately nobody came throughout the night, so we managed to get some sleep. In the morning we headed to Shabbat davening at the shul in Amona. After eating lunch at another family’s house we returned to the shul where we were told that three jeeps were seen driving on the hilltop.
                After finishing the afternoon prayers at the shul we headed back to the hill. We had gotten lazy and didn’t bother having anyone on lookout rather we all sat chatting and joking inside the stone building. Suddenly, out of the entrance we spotted a jeep driving towards the hill. Everyone quickly got in line ready to run out of the building and out to the valley. The guy standing at the front of the line finally shouted “run!” and we all scattered towards the valley as the jeep circled towards the other side of the hill. We reached the valley and waited. Nothing happened, so we started to head back up towards the hill. As I headed up the hill and approached the dirt road the jeep came into view. I shouted back to everyone “it’s here!” and we all scrambled back down to the valley. The jeep stopped and the soldiers steeped out of the vehicle. They quickly realized that we had a big head start and that they weren’t going to be able to catch us with all the equipment on their backs.
                We waited in the valley for a while and then me and one of the other guys started to head back up towards the hill to see if the jeep had left yet. We made it up and didn’t see the jeep anywhere nearby so we headed back down to the valley to call the other guys to come up. As they came up we crossed the dirt road and started heading towards the buildings. From behind we heard a whistling noise and saw one of the guys waving for us to come back towards the valley. I bolted back across the road and straight down the side of the hill as fast as I could. When we made it back down he said that the jeep was making its way back up to the hill.
                It was starting to get late and we knew that these games could only go on so long. We ran to Amona and slipped into one of the houses without being seen. We stayed in Amona until Shabbos ended and planned what to do next. Our bags were still on the hill so we had to try to go back.
                As we made our way up the road leading to the hill one of the guys started putting stones in the road just in case a jeep came while we were there. This way at least we would have more time as they would have to get out and remove the blockade. We chatted and joked as we walked up the hill. As we approached a curve in the road one of the guys spotted a flashing yellow light. “Jeep!” he warned. We ran away from the road straight towards the hillside. Apparently the soldiers had heard us and the jeep started descending down the road. A second jeep came into view and descended as well. Heaven smiled on us and the jeeps were forced to stop at the makeshift barrier we had created minutes earlier. This gave us time to get back to Amona and into one of the houses.
                We gave up… We wouldn’t be getting our bags tonight. We asked a friend in Amona to go in the morning and bring the bags to his house where we would pick them up in the morning. Sunday morning, I and another friend arrived back in Amona and got our bags. There were still a few other things left on the hill so we figured we would go up and get them. As we began the hike up the hill I suddenly spotted a jeep coming down. We ran quickly back to Amona. Again we cut our losses and decided to leave with just our bags.
                Five times within 40 hours they came to try to catch us and five times they failed. They harassed us throughout Shabbos but in the end we won. For at least one more Shabbos there was a Jewish presence on the hill. Sunday night I read online that three youths were arrested at the nearby the Oz Tzion outpost and were ‘suspected of being in a closed military zone’- a euphemism for ‘the police decided that they don’t want Jews in a certain area so they got the army to issue a bogus order.’
                So now, dear Mr. Policeman and honorable Israeli government, now you know where we were and how we managed to escape you.  Now I want to know, “why are you chasing us?” Are there suddenly no terrorists and murderers trying to kill every Jew they can? Are the reports of stones being thrown at Jewish cars on the road just a few kilometers from where we are not true?  Are there no students being harassed at Hebrew University on Mount Scopus ? I didn’t realize you solved all of those problems and that it is suddenly a high priority to make sure ancient ruins remain uninhabited…. or at least uninhabited by Jews.
Perhaps you are just lovers of history and want to make sure that the ancient stone buildings remain in perfect condition. If so, I’d recommend you start by learning from history and recognizing that giving the land of the Arabs will not solve any part of the conflict.
                Perhaps you’re afraid of what the US , EU and a host of other bodies with acronyms will say if you allow a Jewish presence on a new hill in Judea and Samaria . Don’t worry, we’re here to comfort you, the king of kings is on our side and we need not worry what others say. If you still cannot get over it just tell them that some crazy kids are living in some old ancient ruins and that you don’t have enough police forces to deal with them. After all, you honestly don’t seem to have enough police forces to deal with the threats I mentioned earlier so you obviously don’t have time for some crazy kids in an old stone building.
                So the question remains, “why are you chasing us?” I don’t want to hate you. I’d love to serve in your army and help defend a Jewish state in our ancient homeland, but I am not willing to become the one in the jeep that chases fellow Jews from a hill in the middle of Shabbos. I want to help you grow and develop and create an economy that will be a reason for Jews from around the world to move here and not a reason to avoid doing so. I want to help you so much! You see how I’m willing to suffer outside in the cold and the dark and how I’m willing to stay up at night guarding this holy land. I would love to put that same dedication towards helping you in this endeavor to rebuild Jewish civilization here in this land.
Yet I don’t understand why you are chasing me? Do you not want us to reclaim our ancient homeland? Did you not teach me about the pioneers who suffered in this land draining the swamps and whose sole inspiration was the idea of creating a Jewish state? Have you lost your pioneering spirit? Maybe you’ve gotten older, tired, and perhaps even lazy. That’s fine. I imagine when I’m older I also won’t want to stay up guarding outside in the cold. However, if that’s the case, it’s time you pass the baton to the next generation. It’s time you leave and retire to your fancy houses in Tel Aviv, Raanana and Petach Tikvah where you slept outside in the cold when you were my age. Now it’s my turn and you have to go. Your time in the spotlight is up and it’s my turn to reclaim a part of our homeland.
