Eretz Yisrael Time

Yup, it's reeducation time in Israel.

Yekutiel Ben-Yaakov of Kfar Tapuach was convicted of "incitement to racism"

His crime?

In the months leading up to the Expulsion of the Jews, Ben-Yaakov ran a private referendum.

The question the
referendum asked was as follows:

Do you prefer more of the "Sharon/Peres Disengagement Plan" which includes transfering more Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria to "Palestinian" control, and expulsion of the Jews who live there - A move that would bring "Palestinian" territory closer to major Israeli cities such as Tel Aviv, Kfar Saba and Jerusalem.

OR

"The Jewish Alternative Disengagement Plan" which includes annexing these territories and expulsion of hostile Arabs living there (those who refuse to commit not to harm Jews) to an area outside of Israel, deep beyond a safe security buffer zone - A move that would effectivelly distance the "Palestinian" population from major Israeli cities like Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Apparently demanding the expulsion "hostile Arabs" is incitement.

Who knew? Send me to a course.

He gets into to more and more trouble, but I got to hand it to him, he has what a minute number of folks in the Knesset have and thats 'balls' pardon the expression. BTW, the K9 unit he started was a great idea :)

B"H

I'm glad you brought this up. It's an important case.

One of the [silly] things which got him convicted by the "religious" judge was unwilling to consider both sides of the flyer/ballot as one document. Apparently, on one side of the document the word "hostile" was left out, or something like that.

Interesting choice of titles. Although I agree with you, this term has come up recently from the courts wanting to re-educate expulsion protesters by sending them to a "religious" kibbutz. A couple of years ago, three girls from Tapu'ah refused, and preferred to stay in jail than go to such a kibbutz to be "re=educated."

Gee, Joe, every time I'm ready to label you a "mamlachti," you pleasantly surprise me.

Could it be that Jews are too complex to be stuffed into categories?
