The Israeli Heart

Countdown to September

The UN General Assembly Cannot Establish a Palestinian State

The public debate in Israel over the Palestinian plan to seek UN support for statehood in September is based on a fundamental misconception: that the UN General Assembly can decide about the existence of new states. Contrary to widespread beliefs, it was not the UN General Assembly that formally established the State of Israel. UN General Assembly Resolution 181, also known as the Partition Plan, from November 29, 1947, only recommended the establishment of a Jewish state. It was an important moral boost for the Jewish people. But the actual legal basis for the creation of the State of Israel was the declaration of independence by David Ben-Gurion on May 14, 1948…

Palestinian Leaders Say the Peace Process Is Over

The international community has recently witnessed a series of widely publicized and authoritative declarations voiced by Palestinian leaders, according to which «the current peace process as it has been conducted so far is over» (Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riad Malki, March 22, 2011), and «the Palestinian leadership institutions (PLO and Fatah) have decided to submit a request to the UN for recognition of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders, with its capital in East Jerusalem» (Sa’eb Erekat — AFP, March 20, 2011).

These declarations join an earlier plan by Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, announced in August 2009, to unilaterally declare a Palestinian state upon completion of the preparations for Palestinian governing institutions by September 2011…

What Other Surprises Are the Palestinians Preparing for Israel?

May 15, 2011, might become a turning point in the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

One of the main components of Israel’s security is the deterrence factor Israel projects towards its enemies, a factor that has successfully stopped the Arab armies and a plethora of terrorist organizations from initiating an overt war with Israel.

Israel’s deterrence was first rattled in the Yom Kippur War in October 1973 when Israel was taken by surprise by a joint Syrian-Egyptian offensive on its borders. The deterrence factor did not stop the Arab armies from attempting to subdue militarily Israel. Although aware of Israel’s power, Sadat and Assad were ready to sacrifice thousands of lives in order to overcome the temporary borders Israel had established after its victory in the June 1967 Six-Day War in order to reach their political goals…

The Reconciliation Agreement between Fatah and Hamas – An Initial Evaluation

The reconciliation agreement signed by Fatah and Hamas is the old “Egyptian paper” with a protocol that added Hamas’ reservations.

It marks an outstanding political achievement for Mahmoud Abbas. He well understands that Europe is eager to have a Palestinian state materialize, and any indication of the viability of that vision may encourage Europe to support the planned UN vote in support of a Palestinian state in September. In fact, major European parties such as Spain, Britain and France have encouraged the PA to follow the track of a unilateral declaration of statehood.

U.S. President Barack Obama is an enthusiastic supporter of Palestinian statehood, but because he lost the majority in the pro-Israel House of Representatives, he cannot pressure Israel in the open. So he exerts pressure through the Europeans…

Victoria (r. 1837-1901)

Victoria was born at Kensington Palace, London, on 24 May 1819. She was the only daughter of Edward, Duke of Kent, fourth son of George III. Her father died shortly after her birth and she became heir to the throne because the three uncles who were ahead of her in succession — George IV, Frederick Duke of York, and William IV — had no legitimate children who survived.

Warmhearted and lively, Victoria had a gift for drawing and painting; educated by a governess at home, she was a natural diarist and kept a regular journal throughout her life. On William IV’s death in 1837, she became Queen at the age of 18.

Queen Victoria is associated with Britain’s great age of industrial expansion, economic progress and, especially, empire. At her death, it was said, Britain had a worldwide empire on which the sun never set.

In the early part of her reign, she was influenced by two men: her first Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne, and her husband, Prince Albert, whom she married in 1840. Both men taught her much about how to be a ruler in a ‘constitutional monarchy’ where the monarch had very few powers but could use much influence.

Albert took an active interest in the arts, science, trade and industry; the project for which he is best remembered was the Great Exhibition of 1851, the profits from which helped to establish the South Kensington museums complex in London.

Her marriage to Prince Albert brought nine children between 1840 and 1857. Most of her children married into other Royal families of Europe.

Edward VII (born 1841), married Alexandra, daughter of Christian IX of Denmark. Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh and of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (born 1844) married Marie of Russia. Arthur, Duke of Connaught (born 1850) married Louise Margaret of Prussia. Leopold, Duke of Albany (born 1853) married Helen of Waldeck-Pyrmont.

Victoria, Princess Royal (born 1840) married Friedrich III, German Emperor. Alice (born 1843) married Ludwig IV, Grand Duke of Hesse and by Rhine. Helena (born 1846) married Christian of Schleswig-Holstein. Louise (born 1848) married John Campbell, 9th Duke of Argyll. Beatrice (born 1857) married Henry of Battenberg.

Victoria bought Osborne House (later presented to the nation by Edward VII) on the Isle of Wight as a family home in 1845, and Albert bought Balmoral in 1852.

Victoria was deeply attached to her husband and she sank into depression after he died, aged 42, in 1861. She had lost a devoted husband and her principal trusted adviser in affairs of state. For the rest of her reign she wore black.

Until the late 1860s she rarely appeared in public; although she never neglected her official Correspondence, and continued to give audiences to her ministers and official visitors, she was reluctant to resume a full public life.

She was persuaded to open Parliament in person in 1866 and 1867, but she was widely criticised for living in seclusion and quite a strong republican movement developed.

Seven attempts were made on Victoria’s life, between 1840 and 1882 — her courageous attitude towards these attacks greatly strengthened her popularity.

With time, the private urgings of her family and the flattering attention of Benjamin Disraeli, Prime Minister in 1868 and from 1874 to 1880, the Queen gradually resumed her public duties.

In foreign policy, the Queen’s influence during the middle years of her reign was generally used to support peace and reconciliation. In 1864, Victoria pressed her ministers not to intervene in the Prussia-Austria-Denmark war, and her letter to the German Emperor (whose son had married her daughter) in 1875 helped to avert a second Franco-German war.

On the Eastern Question in the 1870s — the issue of Britain’s policy towards the declining Turkish Empire in Europe — Victoria (unlike Gladstone) believed that Britain, while pressing for necessary reforms, ought to uphold Turkish hegemony as a bulwark of stability against Russia, and maintain bi-partisanship at a time when Britain could be involved in war.

Victoria’s popularity grew with the increasing imperial sentiment from the 1870s onwards. After the Indian Mutiny of 1857, the government of India was transferred from the East India Company to the Crown with the position of Governor General upgraded to Viceroy, and in 1877 Victoria became Empress of India under the Royal Titles Act passed by Disraeli’s government.

During Victoria’s long reign, direct political power moved away from the sovereign. A series of Acts broadened the social and economic base of the electorate.

These acts included the Second Reform Act of 1867; the introduction of the secret ballot in 1872, which made it impossible to pressurise voters by bribery or intimidation; and the Representation of the Peoples Act of 1884 — all householders and lodgers in accommodation worth at least £10 a year, and occupiers of land worth £10 a year, were entitled to vote.

Despite this decline in the Sovereign’s power, Victoria showed that a monarch who had a high level of prestige and who was prepared to master the details of political life could exert an important influence.

This was demonstrated by her mediation between the Commons and the Lords, during the acrimonious passing of the Irish Church Disestablishment Act of 1869 and the 1884 Reform Act.

It was during Victoria’s reign that the modern idea of the constitutional monarch, whose role was to remain above political parties, began to evolve. But Victoria herself was not always non-partisan and she took the opportunity to give her opinions, sometimes very forcefully, in private.

After the Second Reform Act of 1867, and the growth of the two-party (Liberal and Conservative) system, the Queen’s room for manoeuvre decreased. Her freedom to choose which individual should occupy the premiership was increasingly restricted.

In 1880, she tried, unsuccessfully, to stop William Gladstone — whom she disliked as much as she admired Disraeli and whose policies she distrusted — from becoming Prime Minister. She much preferred the Marquess of Hartington, another statesman from the Liberal party which had just won the general election. She did not get her way.

She was a very strong supporter of Empire, which brought her closer both to Disraeli and to the Marquess of Salisbury, her last Prime Minister.

Although conservative in some respects — like many at the time she opposed giving women the vote — on social issues, she tended to favour measures to improve the lot of the poor, such as the Royal Commission on housing. She also supported many charities involved in education, hospitals and other areas.

Victoria and her family travelled and were seen on an unprecedented scale, thanks to transport improvements and other technical changes such as the spread of newspapers and the invention of photography. Victoria was the first reigning monarch to use trains — she made her first train journey in 1842.

In her later years, she almost became the symbol of the British Empire. Both the Golden (1887) and the Diamond (1897) Jubilees, held to celebrate the 50th and 60th anniversaries of the queen’s accession, were marked with great displays and public ceremonies. On both occasions, Colonial Conferences attended by the Prime Ministers of the self-governing colonies were held.

Despite her advanced age, Victoria continued her duties to the end — including an official visit to Dublin in 1900. The Boer War in South Africa overshadowed the end of her reign. As in the Crimean War nearly half a century earlier, Victoria reviewed her troops and visited hospitals; she remained undaunted by British reverses during the campaign: ‘We are not interested in the possibilities of defeat; they do not exist.’

Victoria died at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, on 22 January 1901 after a reign which lasted almost 64 years, the longest in British history.

She was buried at Windsor beside Prince Albert, in the Frogmore Royal Mausoleum, which she had built for their final resting place. Above the Mausoleum door are inscribed Victoria’s words: ‘farewell best beloved, here at last I shall rest with thee, with thee in Christ I shall rise again’.

«О библейской критике», часть 2

Невозможность понять персонажи ТАНАХа — НЕ из-за того, что они были «гигантами», а из-за того, что они жили в другом мире, — мире, в котором Шхина была открыта.  В мире, где Шхина открыта и Властелин Мира сообщает о себе людям, все жизненные ценности отличаются от современных. Поэтому, система, ставящая танахические персонажи на «уровень наших глаз» — ошибочная, как и система, делающая из этих персонажей «гигантов». Они не на нашем уровне и не выше — они в другом мире. Поэтому очень тяжело «связаться» с ними и, поэтому, как я считаю, невозможно понять ни единого слова в ТАНАХе.
Чтобы понять там написанное нам необходимо толкование…

Хотите ответ ?
Он очень прост:
Не индивидуально, — я же сейчас не пророчествую 🙂
Мы встречаемся с Богом как коллектив, как нация.
Кому открылся Всевышний на Синае ?  Это очень серьёзный вопрос. Кому ???
Он не открылся каждому из нас, он встретился с народом.
Народ — это не образование, относящееся к определенному времени. Народ — это история.
Если вы спросите — в какое время состоялось Синайское Откровение, ответом будет: «БЕ-ХОЛЬ ДОР ВА-ДОР», «В КАЖДОМ ПОКОЛЕНИИ».

Грустные размышления

Ицхак Ройтман(Rekhovot, Israel):

«Вопрос «Ребе жив» – отнюдь не так прост и не так однозначен, как некоторые это представляют. Жизнь души праведника после смерти – отнюдь не изобретение Любавич, об этом говорится в Зогар, и уже точно не я собираюсь это отвергать. Те, кто знакомы с текстом «маанэ лашон» – молитвы, читаемой на могилах праведников – там приводится цитата из Зогара, что «праведники после смерти еще более велики, чем при жизни», и «мир держится только в заслугу молитвы умерших праведников». У меня нет никакого сомнения, что душа Ребе продолжает присутствовать в этом мире и во всех мирах, еще более чем при его физической жизни в этом мире…»


«Моей хабадской душе близка идея, что все, что происходит в мире – это лишь отражение того, что происходит в Хабаде. Возможно, если мы в Хабаде исправим и очистим свою мессианскую идею – это приведет к тому, что очистятся и остальные мессианские идеи и веяния нашего мира, и мы удостоимся видеть нашего праведного Мошиаха в скором времени в наши дни…»


«Религиозное еврейство смотрело на эти новые веяния с недоверием, опаской и ненавистью. Казалось, что незыблемо стоявшее в течение столетий здание иудаизма вот-вот рухнет.
В это время раздался один пронзительный голос человека, наверное, лучше всех остальных «прочитавших карту» поколения, увидевшего в порвавшей с религией молодежи не «отступников», а передовой отряд еврейства. В своей статье «Поколение» рав Авраам Ицхак Кук объясняет, что молодежь отходит от Торы не из вражды к традиции, а потому, что рамки традиции стали для нее тесными, что те идеалы, которая эта молодежь ставит перед собой – кажутся ей более возвышенными и гуманными, чем те идеалы, которые они усвоили в хедере.»
