HEVRON JEWS - NO LEAVING HERE
1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
27 And he( THE EU PRESIDENT) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: (1X7=7 YEARS) and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease,(3 1/2 yrs in TEMPLE SACRIFICES STOPPED) and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
PASSOVER DAY 8 IN ISRAEL SCRIPTURES. (NISAN 21) APR 9,07
19 All the firstling males that come of thy herd and of thy flock thou shalt sanctify unto the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work with the firstling of thy bullock, nor shear the firstling of thy sheep.
20 Thou shalt eat it before the LORD thy God year by year in the place which the LORD shall choose, thou and thy household.
21 And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the LORD thy God.
22 Thou shalt eat it within thy gates: the unclean and the clean person shall eat it alike, as the roebuck, and as the hart.
23 Only thou shalt not eat the blood thereof; thou shalt pour it upon the ground as water.
1 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
2 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the LORD thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD shall choose to place his name there.
3 Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.
4 And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there any thing of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning.
5 Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee:
6 But at the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.
7 And thou shalt roast and eat it in the place which the LORD thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents.
8 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work therein.
9 Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks from such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle to the corn.
10 And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the LORD thy God with a tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which thou shalt give unto the LORD thy God, according as the LORD thy God hath blessed thee:
11 And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to place his name there.
12 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt: and thou shalt observe and do these statutes.
13 Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:
14 And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates.
15 Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy God in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.
16 Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:
17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee.
19 But ye shall offer a sacrifice made by fire for a burnt offering unto the LORD; two young bullocks, and one ram, and seven lambs of the first year: they shall be unto you without blemish:
20 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil: three tenth deals shall ye offer for a bullock, and two tenth deals for a ram;
21 A several tenth deal shalt thou offer for every lamb, throughout the seven lambs:
22 And one goat for a sin offering, to make an atonement for you.
23 Ye shall offer these beside the burnt offering in the morning, which is for a continual burnt offering.
24 After this manner ye shall offer daily, throughout the seven days, the meat of the sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD: it shall be offered beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink offering.
25 And on the seventh day ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work.
32 As yet shall he remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
33 Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, shall lop the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled.
34 And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.
1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
13 The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.
15 And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod.
16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
1 And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.
2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.
5 Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.
6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

Thailand scraps tsunami warning test for fear of creating panic Sun Apr 8, 5:28 PM ET
BANGKOK (AFP) - Thai authorities cancelled tests of 79 tsunami warning towers along its coast over fears they would cause panic among tourists and locals, senior officials said Sunday. Thailand, which was hit by deadly waves two years ago, began Saturday testing the loudspeakers on the towers along the Andaman coast, which had recently been linked up by satellite to a US-funded deep-sea warning buoy deployed in December.During the test, the beachfront towers were due to broadcast a two-second knocking sound every morning at 9:00 am around the coastline in six provinces.The test was meant to carry on indefinitely to make sure the system was always working.
But officials called off the operation Saturday after testing the loudspeakers at just two towers, amid concern that locals and tourists might think a real tsunami was heading to the beach and panic.Smith Thammararoj, director for Thailand's National Disaster Warning Centre, said the tests were halted because there was a lack of communication between local authorities.The test for the two towers worked well, Smith told AFP.But the tests at the other towers were cancelled as information had not been delivered well enough to explain to local people and tourists, and if we had carried on the test, it would have scared people.In the event of a tsunami, the US-funded warning buoy is designed to detect the earthquake which causes the waves and send a warning signal through the satellite to emergency officials and to the coastal towers.Smith said his centre will meet Monday to discuss plans for the next test, but stressed that it was important to hold them regularly to ensure the system worked.Some 5,400 people were killed in Thailand, roughly half of them foreign holidaymakers, when a tsunami ripped across the Indian Ocean in December 2004.The disaster killed 220,000 people around the region.The test came just days after another tsunami struck the western Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean, killing 34 people and displacing 5,500 others.

Reunion's massive volcano eruption simmers down Sun Apr 8, 4:17 PM ET
SAINT-DENIS-DE-LA-REUNION, France (AFP) - Ten days after violently awakening, a volcano on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion continued spewing lava Sunday in what experts called the eruption of the century.But the Piton de la Fournaise volcano on eastern Reunion, a French overseas department, had lulled considerably, and residents remained out of danger.Tourists and residents have been able to take in the sights of the smouldering lava and magma being tossed as high as skyscrapers.We can call it the eruption of the century, said Zacharie Duputel, a seismologist at the Volcano Observatory for the island. We have never observed such a phenomenon.The eruption resulted in the collapse of the volcano's summit, with magma at times being spewed as high as 200 metres (656 feet) into the air.
The lava had cut off a national highway as it spurted toward the sea at 60 kilometres (38 miles) per hour, creating clouds of gas as it made contact with water. Sulphur dioxyde levels in the gas have not been measured at dangerous levels.Lava flow had been estimated at three million cubic metres (four million cubic yards) per day.On Sunday, lava leapt only 10 metres (33 feet) into the air, according to the observatory. There was less activity within the crater, though entire sections of rock continued to collapse.Some people with memories of damage caused by previous eruptions were not enjoying the show. Eight houses were destroyed by lava in 1986.
About 100 residents were evacuated from a village in southeastern Reunion on Friday, with some believing they could see lava approaching.They were allowed to return to their homes two hours later, however.
What was believed to be lava turned out to be a forest fire caused by burning ashes.About a dozen families have decided not to return to their homes anyway, said Guy Riviere, deputy mayor for the eastern city of Saint-Philippe and an agent for the Office of National Forests. He said they planned to return home after the volcano's activity reduced further.While houses have not been affected, residents continue to hear loud rumbling in addition to seeing the burning forested area.The atmosphere is gloomy in the village, Riviere said.About 300 hectares (741 acres) of primary forest has been destroyed over the past 10 days, and some 30 hectares of palm and vanilla plants have burnt. Special timber used for cabinet-making that cannot be found elsewhere on the island was heavily damaged.
Iran expands uranium enrichment By ALI AKBAR DAREINI, Associated Press Writer APR 09,07
NATANZ, Iran - Iran announced Monday that it has begun enriching uranium with 3,000 centrifuges, defiantly expanding a nuclear program that has drawn U.N. sanctions and condemnation from the West. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said at a ceremony at the enrichment facility at Natanz that Iran was now capable of enriching nuclear fuel on an industrial scale.Asked if Iran has begun injecting uranium gas into 3,000 centrifuges for enrichment, top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani replied, Yes. He did not elaborate, but it was the first confirmation that Iran had installed the larger set of centrifuges after months of saying it intends to do so. Until now, Iran was only known to have 328 centrifuges operating.Uranium enrichment can produce fuel for a nuclear reactor or the material for a nuclear warhead. The United States and its allies accuse Iran of intending to produce weapons, a charge the country denies.
Sean McCormack, the State Department spokesman, said the U.N. Security Council and the U.N. nuclear watchdog group don't believe Iran's assurances that their (nuclear) program is peaceful in nature.The Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N. nuclear watchdog, had no immediate comment on Monday's announcement.The United Nations has vowed to ratchet up sanctions as long as Iran refuses to suspend enrichment. The Security Council first imposed limited sanctions in December, then increased them slightly last month and has set a new deadline of late May.What we are looking for are reasonable Iranian leaders who view the cost-benefit calculation and see that it is not to the benefit of the Iranian people to continue to pursue the course on which they find themselves, McCormack said.Iranian state television reported Monday that an Iranian Revolutionary Guard general who is under travel restrictions urged by the sanctions has visited Russia without any difficulty.
Gen. Mohammad Baqer Zolqadr, who is also deputy interior minister for security affairs, was quoted on the state TV Web site as saying that his six-day journey to Moscow, which ended Monday, showed the ineffectiveness of the resolution.The resolution urges all governments to ban visits by the 15 individuals and says that should such visits occur presumably for exceptional circumstances the countries should notify a U.N. committee.Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Krivtsov
confirmed that Zolqadr visited Russia. He told The Associated Press that the resolution does not prohibit visits by the listed individuals, but calls for heightened vigilance directed first of all at people who are directly related to nuclear programs suggesting that Zolqadr was not.Tensions are also high between Iran and the West following the 13-day detention of 15 British sailors by Iran. The sailors, who were seized by Revolutionary Guards off the Iraqi coast, were released on Wednesday, but since then have said they were put under psychological pressure by their captors to force them to confess to being in Iranian waters when captured, angering many in Britain.
In his speech, Ahmadinejad insisted Iran has been cooperative with the U.N. nuclear watchdog, allowing it inspections of its facilities, but he warned, Don't do something that will make this great nation reconsider its policies in a reference to the threat of increased U.N. sanctions.With great honor, I declare that as of today our dear country has joined the nuclear club of nations and can produce nuclear fuel on an industrial scale, Ahmadinejad said.Larijani, said his country was willing to offer assurances that its program is peaceful. But he said the West must accept its nuclear program as a fact.We are ready to reach understanding with the Westerners through a corridor of real negotiations in the current situation, in which Iran's nuclear activities have been concluded, state television quoted Larijani as saying. The understanding regards assuring the other party about the peacefulness of Iran's nuclear activities, he said. But we do not give in our rights.On April 9, 2006, Iran announced it had first enriched uranium using an array of 164 centrifuges.
Across Iran, school bells rang on Monday to mark the national day of nuclear energy. The government sent out text messages of congratulations for the occasion to millions of mobile phone users. In Tehran, some 200 students formed a human chain at Iran's Atomic Energy Organization while chanting death to America and death to Britain. The students burnt flags of the U.S. and Britain.
Experts say the Natanz plant needs between 50,000 to 60,000 centrifuges to consistently produce fuel for a reactor or build a warhead. In the enrichment process, uranium gas is pumped into a cascade of thousands of centrifuges, which spin the gas at supersonic speeds to purify it. Uranium enriched to a low level, at least 3 percent, can be used as fuel, while at a far higher level, more than 90 percent, it can be used to build a weapon. AP writer Nasser Karimi in Tehran contributed to this report.
Russia plans to rival U.S. GPS system By James Kilner APR 09,07
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia plans to launch a direct competitor to the U.S. GPS satellite navigation system next year using military technology developed in the Cold War era, project leaders said on Monday. Drivers, hill walkers, sailors and army commanders around the world navigate using satellite technology developed by the U.S. military. Soon they will be able to switch to a Soviet-designed rival
GLONASS.We are planning to deliver all sorts of devices already available on GPS, said Alexander Gurko, the chairman of M2M Telematics which manufacturers satellite navigation equipment.
GPS stands for Global Positioning System.
From next year we will start producing a consumer product from GLONASS, Gurko said.He was speaking at a press briefing alongside Yuri Nosenko, the deputy head of the Russian space agency Roskosmos, and other GLONASS project leaders.
Russia will spend 10 billion rubles ($385 million) this year on developing GLONASS and firing more satellites into orbit but will also be looking for private partners, Nosenko said.The Soviet Union started work on developing GLONASS, which stands for Global Navigation Satellite System, in the mid-1970s to give its army exact bearings around the world.But the collapse of the Russian economy in the late 1990s drained funds away from GLONASS and the satellite system frayed.Now though, it has become a favored project of Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose seven years in power have been marked by resurgent Russian national pride alongside burgeoning oil revenues.
Since the U.S. military turned on the GPS system for the consumer market in 1993, it has become a multi-billion-dollar industry.Consumers don't care whether its GPS, GLONASS or Galileo, they just want a signal, said Yuri Urchich, head of the Russian institute of space equipment engineering.Galileo is the European Union's satellite navigation system which it says will start beaming coordinates to customers by 2011.
GLONASS presently covers Russia and some of the surrounding countries but after the launch of more satellites this year it will spread its reach until, by 2009, the world will be fully covered by its 24 Russian satellites, the panel said.
They said the GLONASS system would mainly be used alongside a GPS to provide a backup and extra security in case of interference such as deliberate jamming.India, which buys military equipment from Russia, has already signed a deal to jointly develop the GLONASS system.Of course there are problems, Roskosmos's Nosenko said of developing GLONASS. Some of them have a certain history, some of them are new, but they are all being discussed candidly.
Extremist Jewish Groups to Storm in Al Aqsa Mosque Sparks Resentment APR 7,07
JERUSALEM, Palestine,April 7,2007(IPC +Agencies) - - Senior Islamic figures denounced the storm-in by dozens of fundamentalists into the courtyards of Al Aqsa Mosque under the heavy guard of Israeli police and special units and show-up of the alleged Suleiman Haykal by these radical groups. The Islamic Waqf endowment in Jerusalem thwarted an attempt to enter holy Al aqsa mosque by extremist group calling itself the Temple Mount Trustees.In Friday's sermon, Ekrma Sabri, mufti of Jerusalem and senior preacher of the Al-Aqsa Mosque decried the storm-in and asserted such molests are provocateur to the Muslim feelings and do not bode well.The Islamic Endowment Bureau in occupied east Jerusalem thwarted Thursday an attempt to storm in Al Aqsa mosque by Temple Mount Trustees, carrying incarnates of alleged Temple third.
Another Anglo- Zionist group from Zion Christ has stormed the courtyards of Al Aqsa Mosque under the heavy guard of Israeli police and special units. They went toward the Al Quds Funds and Waqf through the corridors, chanting slogans glorifying the Jewish feature of Jerusalem.
Islamic Endowment (Waqaf) department put itself on high alert and could thwarted storming the extremist Jewish groups in the courtyard of Al Aqsa mosque, first Qibla and thirst holiest site for Muslims. In a joint press conference, The Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Mohammad Hussein, and Bishop Atallah Hanna, denounced the Jewish fundamentalists and their Israeli police escorts.The police allow the extremists to enter Al Aqsa Mosque under the guise of tourism.He appealed the international and Arab communities to defend Jerusalem's Muslim and Christian holy places, as well as defend the people who are subject to numerous harassments and provocations.
The Mufti continued, The measures of the occupation in the holy city inforce Judaization. Standing beside the Islamic official was Bishop Atallah Hanna who said, We in the holy city expect support of the sacred shrines which are violated every day. He called on the international community to also support Palestinian Christians during Easter by pressuring Israeli forces to stop prohibiting them from praying in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW WHY THE ISAELI GOVERNMENT HATES THESE ISRAELIS SO MUCH, IS MY QUESTION. NOT ONLY FORCES THEM OFF THE LAND GOD GAVE TO THESE ISRAELIS, BUT NOW TRYING TO FORCE THEM OUT OF THEIR NEW PLACES.
Hevron's Jews: We're in Peace House to Stay
by Hillel Fendel APR 09,07 (INN)
With signs increasingly pointing to wide-scale governmental opposition to Defense Minister Amir Peretz's plan to evict the Jews from their new building in Hevron, the residents say: If they try to get us out, we'll be ready.The Jewish Community of Hevron duly purchased the large building two years ago, via a Jordanian businessman, for $700,000. Though some Israeli officials say they are still checking the legality of the sale, the Arabs are not waiting; the former Arab owner has already been arrested and charged with selling property to a Jew, a capital offense under both Jordanian and Palestinian Authority law. Some 20 families from Hevron and environs joyously moved into the building immediately upon the publication of the sale three weeks ago. Many of the tens of thousands of visitors to Hevron over the Passover holiday also stopped off at the building, expressing happiness at the acquisition of another Jewish property in the City of the Patriarchs. Adding to the sense of celebration was the critical location of the building - along the Arab-populated road leading from Kiryat Arba to the Jewish section of Hevron.
Peretz: You'll Be Out Within Two Weeks
The joy was somewhat doused Thursday night with the announcement by Defense Minister Amir Peretz of Labor that he plans to evacuate the Jews from the building. He explained that even if the sale is legal, the residents had failed to obtain permission from the defense establishment before moving in, as is required in Judea and Samaria. Labor MK Ephraim Sneh seconded Peretz's position.
Peretz has been under fire within his Labor Party for not evacuating Jewish outposts in Judea and Samaria as he promised. His decision was thus greeted by many political figures as merely serving his own political needs.
Political Opposition to Peretz
By Friday, however, it appeared likely that Peretz would have a hard time implementing his decision. MK Effie Eitam said that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told him last week that he would not allow Peretz to evacuate the building.
If the building in Hevron was acquired legally, Olmert reportedly told Eitam, I won't let Peretz evacuate it. Eitam said he met with the Prime Minister and Interior Minister Roni Bar-On (Kadima) on the issue. Evacuating this building, Eitam said he told Olmert, would be against rules of natural justice and the legitimate rights of Jews to acquire property and to live in their homes everywhere in the Land ofIsrael. In addition, Kadima MK Otniel Schneller said that most of his party colleagues in the Knesset intend to block Peretzs politically-based plan to evacuate Peace House. Kadima Knesset faction leader Avigdor Yitzchaki also expressed his support for the Jewish residents of Peace House in a visit Thursday afternoon, together with Likud MK Gidon Saar.
Peretz must not be allowed to thrown the whole country into a tizzy because of his own personal political considerations, MK Eitam said, in reference to Peretz's all-but-lost bid to retain his leadership of the Labor Party. Labor will hold party primaries for the leadership late next month.
Preparing the Building
The house is called Peace House, Hevron spokesman David Wilder explained to Arutz-7, because our goal is to live in peace with our neighbors. And in fact, though our new house is surrounded on three sides by Arabs, as is the road that leads to it, they have not reacted with any hostility to our presence.Despite the encouraging signs on the political front, preliminary plans are being made to bring in supporters from all over the country to rebuff any attempt to evacuate the structure. In addition, the residents are continuing to make the giant structure ready for habitation for some 20 new families. This will partially ease the housing crisis for the Jewish Community of Hevron, which has been stifled by lack of space for new families for some time. The four-story building - part of which has two- and three-story-high ceilings - was apparently designed by the Arab owner to be a shopping mall, new residents say. In light of the updated plans to make it a residential building for Jews, plasterboard walls have already been put up to fashion separate apartments for the various families.
The bottom floor is currently serving as a joint dining room, synagogue, work-tools storeroom and welcoming-area for the many guests and well-wishers.
Minister Eitan's Stance
Pensioners Affairs Minister Rafi Eitan, head of the Pensioners Party and a veteran defense figure, told Arutz-7's Uzi Baruch today that he supports the Jewish presence in the new building. The building must remain in Jewish hands, Eitan said, because it is in territory that is totally Israel. In 1996, an agreement was signed [giving away most of Hevron to the Palestinian Authority - ed.] that essentially divides Hevron [into Jewish and Arab areas]. That agreement stipulates clearly that the road between the Machpelah Cave and Kiryat Arba remains under Israeli control - and therefore this building must remain Israeli.
Support from Beit Shemesh
The Deputy Mayor of Beit Shemesh, Shalom Lerner, visited the new building on Friday and promised support for the residents against Defense Minister Peretz's stated intention to throw them out.
Meeting with those currently living in the building, Lerner said, The residents of Beit Shemesh [40 kilometers northwest of Hevron - ed.] encourage and strengthen you in your efforts to fortify the Jewish presence in Hevron, and they will stand with you here and struggle against any attempt to evict you. Attempts to throw you out stand in opposition to natural justice and the position of most Israeli citizens. I will call upon the residents of Beit Shemesh to join the struggle for this building, so that Peretz - who failed in protecting our security - won't fail in Hevron as well.
Trouble for Peretz
Meanwhile, Peretz faces fire from various quarters as well. He is not only facing an uphill battle in his race against former Prime Minister Ehud Barak and MK Ami Ayalon to retain party leadership, but is also expected to be bitterly castigated by the preliminary findings of the Winograd Commission investigating his and others' performance during last summer's Second Lebanon War. The findings are due out in June. The protocols of the testimonies of Olmert, Peretz and others before the
Commission are expected to be publicized sooner than that. The Supreme Court originally ordered them released before Passover, but following a last-minute request by the Commission for a delay, the Court has now given the Commission several more days to explain why it should not release them immediately.Peretz, whose political career has always been associated with the struggle for equality for the underprivileged, has also been repeatedly and heavily criticized for accepting the Defense portfolio. He had demanded, during last year's coalition negotiations, one of the three main portfolios Finance, Foreign Affairs and Defense but was turned down for the first two. He finally chose Defense, even though he had no prior experience in security affairs.
Peretz attempted to address this issue in a meeting with supporters over the weekend, saying, A social process is not just a question of dividing the wealth of the State of Israel. We'll get there. But primarily it is a question of creating symbols and status. Part of the status of the social question is influenced by the status of the one leading it.MK David Rotem (Yisrael Beiteinu) said that Peretz is
pathetic and must resign. Speaking with Voice of Israel this morning (Sunday), Rotem said that Peretz's actions are governed only by what he can gain politically, and he does not even refrain from using the IDF to this end...Peretz is doing nothing to return the captive soldiers, nor to reinforce the IDF's war-battered status.
