Dear Friends,

The event in the Land of Israel Cultural Center in Shdema this past Friday started with a demand to the Prime Minister in relation to the murder of Rabbi Meir Chai HY"D. "Get a hold of yourself immediately and stop caving in to the Arab enemy" said the members of the Committee for a Jewish Shdema and Women in Green. "The murder of rabbi Chai HY"D was expected. When you open roadblocks, when you agree
to release hundreds of murderers, when you instill in the Arab enemy hopes for more and more concessions, you weaken Israel and every weakness invites another terror attack. Now, more than ever, it is our
obligation to fight with even more determination for each and every place in the land of Israel, and that is what we are doing in Shdema, among other places."

Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, Rabbi of Efrat, spoke about the parashat hashavua and described how the story is relevant to today's events.

Yehuda, expert in negotiations, wanted to soften Joseph. He told him how his father is already very old and how much he will hurt if he loses another son. In his dealings to achieve what he wanted, (i.e. Binyamin) Yehuda was making sure to use arguments that would have an effect on the person he was dealing with. Rabbi Riskin said that this was a tremendous lesson in negotiating. One needs to understand how the head of the other side is working. This is in sharp contrast to today's government that is acting like a beaten wife, added rabbi Riskin. The government thinks that if we give and give- that we also will receive. But that is not the case. We must know the mentality of the other side and stand firm on our interests and not on that from
the other side.

Rabbi Riskin was disturbed to hear about the situation in Shdema. That the Arabs had been allowed to build an entire complex despite it being area C, belonging to Shdema, with the financial help of international
organizations like USAID and we the Jews are not even allowed to fix anything let alone build. The plastic sheets that had been put up last week to protect us from the rain had been torn down. Likewise, we found a booklet in Shdema by the World Health organization whose members must have gone up to Shdema during the week , planning how to take away Shdema from us, and purposely left their traces there.

The Friday event, in which tens of people participated, was accompanied by erev Shabbat music from Eli Gilboa, resident of Kiryat Arba Hevron, and his accordion.

This coming FRIDAY January 1st, CAROLINE GLICK, senior contributing Editor of the Jerusalem Post, will be talking in SHDEMA on "Obama and Israel". The lecture will be at 10:00 am.

Caroline will be speaking in Hebrew and there will be simultaneous translation into English with earphones.
