The 1929 Arab Terror Attack: When Hebron Became Occupied Territory

by Sammy Benoit

“Hebron was the first piece of land ever purchased by a Jew in Israel. Approximately 38 centuries ago, the patriarch Abraham purchased a cave in Hebron to bury his beloved wife Sarah. Jews have owned land in Hebron from then until the early part of the 20th century.

    It is this incident that makes me wonder why Israel voted him back, he sold out Hebron then, so the question is what is he going to sell out in the near future

      I think the biggest problem in Israel is not who is PM, but the Supreme Court, which is really the Oligarchic power behind everything. Netanyahu has certainly made huge mistakes, and most Zionist Israelis do not trust him. Many think his heart is in the right place, but he loses his spine under American pressure. How Jewish history is presented in his book “A Place Among the Nations” is among the best Jewish history books I’ve read.

      “Jewish Leadership” party, Manhigut Yehudit, started by Moshe Feiglin is getting more votes. Feiglin should have been higher on the Likud list, but Netanyahu’s political maneuvering pushed him down. Feiglin has integrity. He could have fought Netanyahu’s political maneuvering through the Supreme Court, but he refused to work with them precisely because he won’t work with such a corrupt body.

      I’m sure you know, Israeli politics are very complicated, and not nearly as responsive to the electorate as the American political system (even now). I don’t know why Netanyahu, in fact, why the same leftist policy keeps rising to the top. The electorate is much more Zionist then their government.
