When Yesha Went to the EU

First, there was a visit to Germany and Belgium.  That was last year.
Then there was London.
And this year, there was another visit when a conference at the European Parliament in Brussels took place where "Sheikh Jabari of Hebron spoke of trust between himself and the Hebron settlers, and the Vice-Chair of the (European) Union related his positive impressions of coexistence in Barkan and at Ariel University. Not a word about occupation or apartheid".

And here are from the remarks made at the European Union committee by Professor Hillel Weiss

Do not worry. I am not going to leave you in despair. There is a solution written in the Bible several times: it is the vision of the messianic era:

From the Book of Micha Chapter Four:

1 But in the end of days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established as the top of the mountains, […] 2 And many nations shall go and say: 'Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths'; for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 3 And He shall judge between many peoples, and shall decide concerning mighty nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig-tree; and none shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken. 5 For let all the peoples walk each one in the name of its god, but we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.

There is no need to wait until the end of days because if we wait until then, a catastrophe will overtake us. Let us undertake in advance what has been decreed. To establish the house of God in its proper place on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem “Because My house shall be a house of worship for all nations”. Accept the sentence pronounced on all those who left Noah’s ark after the great Flood- both Jews and non-Jews, black people and white people and yellow people, and those who have no color, those who claim to be total atheists. Everyone is obliged by the ethics that are known as the ethics of the Sons of Noah or the Noahide Commandments.

Prohibition of Idolatry ; Prohibition of Murder ; Prohibition of Suicide; Prohibition of Sexual immorality ; Prohibition of Theft; the obligation to establish courts of law ; Prohibition of craving meat excessively and shedding blood in vain, certainly not eating raw meat; Prohibition of eating flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive.

So then what is permitted?

We, all human beings, are permitted to love all fellowman because all were created in the image of God and hunger to hear the word of God in whatever name the one God is called. There are many non-Jews who are ready do this. There are many Righteous Gentiles who love the Jewish People such as Giulio Meotti, an Italian post-Catholic writer and journalist whom I have never met, who lives in Italy and sanctifies God’s name with the hundreds and thousands of articles he has written in praise of Israel and criticism of its persecutors, using facts taken from daily events. If you come across an article of his, read it because it is balm to the spirit and a recipe for peace. He is a righteous gentile who keeps faith. We expect that many will follow him. That all of the nations of Europe and the people of Islam will learn to love and fear the God of Israel and His people, and grab the sleeve of a Jew and go with him to the Land of Israel. Every living creature should find its home and its natural habitat.

Let the Arabs and Moslem nationalists return to their natural habitat, and let the Jews return to their natural habitat, according to the division made by our forefather Abraham in dividing the land between himself and Lot, between Ishmael and his brothers, And peace and truth shall you love, for the sake of God’s great name with love< br />
And Gershon Messika also spoke. ^
