It says in the parsha. ”You shall not have in your bag different weights, a large and a small. You shall not have in your house different measures, a large and a small. But you shall have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shall you have; that your days may be lengthened in the land which Yhv”h Elohech”a gives you. For all who do such things, and all who do unrighteously, are an abomination to Yhv”h Elohech”a. ” (25:13-16)
The prophets say much concerning social injustice and economic oppression. Isaiah says:
“Woe to those who join house to house and field to field, they draw close till there is no place, and you will be settled alone in the midst of the land “ (5:8)
They create a situation where there is no where for the poor man to live, as Rashi explains. This type of action is robbing the poor of their land. They allow themselves to act in this selfish way by denying that the land actually belongs to GOD, and that the poor inherently have a right to a place to live as explained by the Radak and Ibn Ezra. By joining field to field the small independent farmer is put out of business by large commercial industrial farming corporations. In safer Eliyahu, Eliyahu ha Novi (Elijah the Prophet) says that because of interest taken on houses, and stealing fields from this there will be orphans and widows in sackcloth.1 Rashi teaches us that this commandment of having ”a perfect and just weight”. Is in The Torah next to the commandment of destroying Amalak. So to teach us Amalek comes when Yisrael is not honest in their Business practices. The Magid of Koznitz teaches that if your ”yetzer hora” (evil inclination) says to you “teshuva” (returning to GOD) of sinners is of no value, be happy with the pleasures of this world. Live only for today, who knows what tomorrow will really bring. Your ”yetzer Hora” (evil inclination) tells you things as these so to make you fall into sadness over your service of GOD, making your heart bitter toward things of the כבוד (glory of) GOD. Know that it is because of these things that that GOD told us to ”remember what Amalak did to you on the way”.2
“Remember what Amalek did to you by the way, when you came forth out of Egypt;
How he met you by the way, and struck at your rear, all who were feeble behind you, when you were faint and weary; and he did not fear Elohem”e. Therefore it shall be, when Yhv”h Elohech”a has given you rest from all your enemies around, in the land which Yhv”h Elohech”a gives you for an inheritance to possess, that you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; you shall not forget it. ”(25:-17-19)
Rabbi Moshe Cordevero teaches in his commentary to the Zohar called Aor Yakar that there is united Chuchmah and Bina in Keter by Dat. Recieve Bina from Chuchmah through Dat. Dat is the Yesod of Rachamim. It is the source and Nashama of Teferet. Unification of Chuchmah and Bina illuminates dat in Bina. The flow of chuchmah is arroused throught Dat that is in Bina. Ultimately רעותא (arousal) is Divine will, it is Ketter. This is עולמים חי (life of the worlds) which is the Yesod below illuminating upon the earth which is Machut. Chuchmah is called arrousel from above, as it is above Bina. There is the מאורות, and fineness. Ketter is a aspect of flow in Bina that is not through Chuchmah. Keter can flow by way of the central pillar in Teferet, not through Bina or Chuchmah reaching chesed. Keter makes a path (of Bina) for itself. It
is the dwelling place of the Shechinah. 1
The “kotel” is close to the “even Stiyah” (foundation firmament). There goes out the flow of light which is proper from the “kav” (beam). From this fine “kav” of אור (light) is a partnership of Bina (Divine undestanding) and Rachamim(mercy) that is drawn to enliven the world. In the place of the “even Stiyah” there the “kav” decends till reaching the center. From there it stands and then spreads out to the sides. From there and there the light spreads out, As in a globe. Till making the circle all equal. From the center she spreads out in length and width. Spreading out in all levels in secret of East to west, and north to south. This is the place of the עגול (circle-sefirot iggulim) where the world is eminated and the “kav” is drawn to. The Aor Yashar (supernatural spiritual light of the “kav”) surrounds the head of the “iggulim” (sefirot of nature), but does not enter them (the body of the Iggulim-6 lower sefirot). This place is between above and below. From here goes out the cleaving of the Ayn-Sof (infiniteness of God). The “kav” descends to illuminate in the חלל (empty space) which is the first עגול, and also in the 2nd that was eminated in it.1
The 70 nations receive their flow from אלהים of “din” according to their actions, while Yisrael draws from the 13 “dikna”. Yisrael draws power from the 13 “dikna” sweetening the dinim of א ל ה י ם .1 All “dinim” are sweetened in their source which is rachamim, by this is made a גבול (limit).2 Power of Rachamim changes din to its opposite of Rachamim.3 א ל ה י ם

Netanyahu to offer withdrawal
from 90% of West Bank
NOTHING IN RETURN ?
London-based al-Hayat newspaper quotes Ramallah sources as saying prime minister has prepared plan for evacuation of 50,000 settlers.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has prepared a “tempting” plan to be presented to the Palestinians in the direct negotiations, as part of which Israel will offer to withdraw from up to 90% of the West Bank, excluding east Jerusalem, the London-based Arabic-language al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper reported Friday.
The newspaper quotes “knowledgeable sources” in Ramallah as saying that the prime minister’s plan will be in the form of a new interim agreement, similar to the 1993 Oslo Accords.
According to the sources, Netanyahu informed the Western delegates he met with recently that the current situation was not right for reaching a final peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, and that he planned to present a proposal for a new interim agreement, which would be “extensive and tempting” to the Palestinians.
The same sources added that Netanyahu believes his offer would be tempting to the Palestinians, as it gives them an extensive part of the West Bank while evacuating a large number of settlements, without forcing them to sign an agreement ending the conflict or ceasing their demand to receive the rest of the West Bank and Jerusalem.
According to the sources, the offer matches the stand of the Hamas organization, which would welcome any new Israeli withdrawal, as long as this does not force the Palestinians to give up on the rest of the territory.
THIS WOULD BE VERY STUPID
The result of a west Bank evacuation would be worse, than the evacuation from Gaza
Which brought armed resistance and attacks on Israeli civilians since the Gaza withdrawal.
84% of Palestinians viewed the disengagement as a “victory” for armed resistance, Palestinian pollster Khalil Shikaki said.
Security has not improved . since the Gaza withdrawal.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today calls Gaza an “Iranian port” south of Tel Aviv, referring to Iranian support for Hamas and other extremist groups in Gaza.
“The false vision whereby leaving the strip would improve our security situation was foolish and baseless,” Israeli columnist Shlomo Engel wrote on the Ynet news website.
As thanks for the Gaza withdrawal the Palestinians fired at Israel thousands of rockets till Operation Cast Lead was required.
The result of a west Bank evacuation would be worse, than the evacuation from Gaza
The Palestinian Authority lost credibility after it was chased out of Gaza by rival Hamas militants in 2007, and has seen its popular support erode among Palestinians.
Withdrawal from 90% of West Bank,
Evacuation of 50,000 settlers.
Without an agreement ending the conflict or ceasing their demand to receive the rest of the West Bank and Jerusalem,
Or the right of return is
DOWN RIGHT STUPID— OR SOMETHING ?
THIS MUST BE STOPPED AND NOT ALLOWED TO GO FORWARD
The Parsha (Part of the Bible God has told us to read each week)
So often deals with what we face in the
world at the time
Ultimately all depends on the mercy of GOD.
As all Gods promises will be for filled for
the Sake of his name.
It says in our parsha “Judges and officers shall you appoint in all your gates,
which Yhv”h elohech”a gives you, for your tribes; and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.” (16:18)
With the establishment of the State of Isreal in our days. For the Jewish people, these
words once again take on a very important
and urgent significance.
The prophet Hosea warns us concerning this:
”Hear the words of YHVH oh children of Israel, for YHVH has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, for there is neither truth nor loving kindness nor knowledge of ELOHEME in the land” (4:1)
The land is given to do righteousness and justice upon but instead the opposite is being done swearing and lying, thus says the Radak. You should know that the sages teach us three things are given on
condition, the land of Israel, the Holy Temple
and the kingdom of David. ” These are given
on the condition you keep my covenant”.1
The land is God’s, on this condition
he gave it to us. It is not an outright gift. Our presence in the land of Israel depends on our observing the commandments. Rabbi Arbanel says that the phrase ” inhabitants
of the land ” tells us of GOD’s concern with commandments pertaining to the land. The land is the source of GOD’s mercy
to the poor who are major beneficiaries
of the laws pertaining to the land. In
Chupat Eliyahu we learn 3 gifts GOD gave
to Yisrael, but they are recieved through
yesurim (sufferings). These gifts are Torah,
Aretz Yisrael and Olam Haba. The building
of the bait ha Mikdash (the Holy Temple)
is an inheritance in merit of Torah learning.2
One must never forget that the Ramba”m
teaches in his Mishna Torah that the
Jewish people when they enter the
land of Israel are responsible then
to fulfill 3 mitvot (laws) : Appointing
a king over themselves, to wipe out
the descendants of Amalak and build
GOD’s House (the Temple).3 The prophet Micah
”Hear this You heads of the house of Yaakov, and you rulers of the house of Yisrael who condemn justice and pervert all
that is straight ” (3:9)
The Radak explains that this rebuke is directed at the heads, the rulers of Israel, because of their perversion of justice. The Metsudat David comments that what ever is straight, these judges say is crooked. A coalition of 350 rabbis labeled the former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert as ”anti-Jewish” and “hostile to Judaism” following his orders to act against two synagogues and a Chabad mobile unit. How can such a man
come to stand as the leader of the nation
of Israel ?
How can Israel police officers trample
young protestors while on horseback
like what happened in Atzmona ?
Theres no need to give the Fatah Palestinian Authority money to pay an entire year’s salary to 3,500 members of Hamas’s terrorist forces. amounting to $16 million.Who can imagine a worse desecration of graves of Jewish martyrs who died in the Arab terrorist attacks than releasing terrorists as “good will gestures”, It says in our parsha :
: “And if they reject your peace offer, but will make war against you, then you shall besiege them painfully;” (20:12)
The head of the Israili army Ehud Barak many times has said its time to give away
parts of Jerusalem, they want to give
Parts of Yahudah and Shomron to the terrorists.
What do they want,
more rockets ?
When American presidential candidate Mike
Huckabee was in Israel He stated
“it concerns him ”that some in the
U.S. tell Israelis they can’t live where
they want in their own country.” ,
“a Palestinian state in the middle of
the Jewish homeland is ”virtually unrealistic.”,
Meanwhile the current Prime Minister of Israel Binyamin Netanyahu was upset that Vice-Premier Moshe Ya’alon for arguing that even unauthorized outposts ”are completely legal,” and his criticizing the organization Peace Now for taking money from foreign powers and foundations intent on swaying Israeli public opinion and
Bibi is governing center-left by freezing Jewish construction. Ya’alon has been far more loyal and faithful to the principles of the Likud, to Likud voters, and to our
country than Netanyahu at times.
It can not be that the Israeli government kills the people of Sderot by Hamas hands
because of their failure to act strongly.
It is time the Israeli government stop
supplying their sworn enemies with
water, electricity and food. Let their patron state Iran build for them power plants and water desalination plants, instead of giving them weapons. Now is the time to seal the Palestinian entity off and deal
with it as with a enemy state: ban Palestinian migrant workers, stop issuing any visas to Palestinians, block all shipments, and wage total war when attacked. Isreal must retaliate with full force upon any infringement of Israeli security. Isreal must fulfill the words of our parsha “Judges and officers shall you appoint in all your gates, which Yhv”h elohech”a gives you, for your tribes; and they shall
judge the people with righteous judgment.” (16:18).
Then we will see as its written in our parsha “I will raise up for them a Prophet from among their brothers, like you, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall
declare to them all that I shall command him. “
(18:18) With our righteous mashiach (messiah) quickly in our days.
