Cutting through the bullshit.

Save the Galillee!

 I don’t usually go for the low hanging fruit, but the other day, I received an advert proclaiming,

Jewish Galilee In Danger

Do you want to do something about it? Be A Partner in Saving The Galilee! Buy A Piece of Israel! "Because it's time to take our country back!"

It had never occurred to me that Jews could buy indulgences, but it transpires that

"One who purchases 4 cubits (amot) in the Land of Israel is assured a portion in the World to Come"
- Midrash Zuta on Megilat Ruth (4:5)

For US$100, you can not only buy a plot in the afterlife, but also 4 square metres ‘of Lower Galilee farming land for B'Ahavat Yisrael's Avoda Ivrit (Jewish Labor) youth farming project’. 

That’s right, Hebrew labour is back.

The land will be farmed exclusively by Jewish youths and the more land that is purchased and worked by Jews the better chance we have of ensuring Jewish sovereignty in the Galilee!

But wait, there’s more!

Special Offer: Dedicate your own section of 18 plots for only $1,500!

Not only that, but if you’re a US resident, your little investment in ethnic cleansing is tax deductible.

On his website, beneath the slogan ‘...because it is time to take our country back...’, B'Ahavat Yisrael’s founder and director, Yosef Ben Tzion (Joel Busner), writes,

If you read or see CNN or the BBC or even the more even handed FOX news, you may come away with the feeling that the government of Israel's settlement policy is an illegal impediment to Peace...

He is scandalised that,

...the Arabs are voting citizens...they receive more National Insurance per capita than Jews...they are causing more deadly car accidents per capita...the media, the Judiciary, and the overall control of the 'system' are controlled by self hating Jewish leftists...the Arabs are winning point after point as the base of a Jewish state dissolves with each point...Thanks to Israel's Extreme Leftist dominated Supreme Court the Israeli Land Authority can no longer develop a new community exclusively for Jews...Arabs can now buy homes in Jewish villages...The Negev is being taken over by blatant Bedouin land grabs and there are thousands upon thousands of illegal houses all over the Negev...

If have the stomach for more racist autoparody, follow the link.


  1. Thank the Lawd for JSF's fine blogroll which allows me to keep an eye on this highly interesting blog.

    And now your remark about B'Achazit and B'Ahavat Yisrael becomes clear and I take my response back: B'Achazit is a loony bagatelle compared to your find. Tax deductible ethnic cleansing is a lot more serious than the lunatic rantings of a lone individual (I assume that's what B'Achazit is - him and a few Baruch Goldstein admirers perhaps).

    "If you have the stomach for more racist autoparody, follow the link."

    I followed it but his stuff is more or less unreadable

    One has to wonder though about the legality of such an initiative. Any ideas?

    I'll be linking to this post shortly.

    Say hello to Possum for me...

  2. Thanks for your comment, Gert, and for linking to me.

    B'Achazit is definitely loonier than Busner, but I think you're right to say that this initiative is more dangerous.

    No, I'm afraid I have no idea about US taxation law, but surmise that Friends of B'Ahavat Yisrael is duly registered as a charity with the IRS.
