Between Yom Kippur and the Sukkot holiday, B'Tselem Director Hagai Elad sat among Israel's sworn haters and provided the world with an excuse to forcefully enter the Jewish state and to impose its own agenda.
Organizations like B'Tselem and their comrades among the radical Left speak of democracy, while they themselves scorn it and the nation that decided differently. In contrast with its false propaganda, this group enjoys the tolerance of Israeli democracy, which allows it to fool the world with its constant slandering in the name of distorted morality. The half-truths that Elad used, devoid of historical and geopolitical context, will advance diplomatic terrorism against us -- something that will ultimately translate into real terrorism, because "even the Israelis themselves are saying," and so any struggle against them is justified
If we search for a parallel to the shameful radical Left, we will find it among the more shocking faction of the ultra-Orthodox Neturei Karta sect, whose members pose for photographs with Israel's enemies, including former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. They are just like "the Sanballats" (after Samaritan leader Sanballat the Horonite) in the Second Temple period, "the enemies of Judah and Benjamin," who "lodged an accusation against the people of Judah and Jerusalem" and slandered the Returnees of Zion to the Persian Empire (Ezra 4:1-6). The radical Left also behaves like a religious cult, ignoring reality when it contradicts its beliefs. The world must know that Elad is the counterpart to the late Moshe Hirsch, the ludicrous "foreign minister" of the haredi sect.
One big difference. The Jewish religion found a way to atone for feelings of guilt and sin: repentance (confession), prayer and charity. "Human rights" organizations like B'Tselem have returned to the ways of the ancient religions, which can be found today in radical Islam: They are not satisfied with verbal repentance for what they believe is Israel's guilt, rather they seek to sacrifice Jewish lives on the altar of their political aspirations. It would not be only Jewish lives cut short by the radical Left's crime of stupidity, but also the lives of Palestinians, who would be abandoned to the cruel leadership of movements like Hamas and the Islamic State group. This is the practical significance of the wanton urging by Elad and his ilk to "end the occupation" or to establish "a Palestinian state."
This is an extreme faction, the spearhead of a small social group that despises its nation, hates its country and reaps the benefits of the appearance of so-called morality that it presents to the world in relation to Israeli society. However, this group essentially cares only for itself, for its status and its earnings at the expense of its brothers.
Poet Uri Zvi Greenberg described them as the people of the seventh day (after the land was liberated in six days): "On the seventh day ... they rose from the valley of deviants ... Datan and Aviram ... Sanballat and his cronies ... from generation to generation ... and in the same throaty voices: 'We have no part in David and no legacy in Ben-Yishai.'" This is how they will be remembered in the history of our people.
