  • The Evacuation of Amona: Who is “the Enemy”?
    Point Of View

    The Evacuation of Amona: Who is “the Enemy”?

    The above song by Naomi Shemer has become something of a “settler hymn” and their prayer to “the good G-d,” asking Him to guard over our plants and our walls. This prayer with its plea echoed through the air last week in the area of Binyamin, in the mists of Amona, which was torn apart in the noise of the bulldozers that were sent to storm the mountain, by order of the Supreme Court. Who is the “evil god,” better known as “Satan,” who has decreed that the plants should be uprooted and that grief should abound (to quote from the above song)? Who is the main “enemy” who leads the charge against Amona and its subsidiaries?

    Would you say it is the Palestinians, our bitter enemies? For certain! Would you say it is the Israeli left, the “traitorous” ones? Absolutely, for sure! Would you say it is the newspaper, Ha’aretz? No doubt this is also true. Do you blame the Prime Minister? Not necessarily. While I do agree with all the criticism against him from the right and I am upset by his hesitation in political and legal terms, he does have some reasons for his actions – he is restrained by the courts, in general and in detail. What about the State Attorney? He too is led by a fear of the Supreme Court and by a “religious” dedication to the rule of law.
