Meir Ettinger is a political prisoner of the State of Israel. Much of his administrative detention has been spent in either actual or near solitary confinement. It has been solely through Meir Ettinger’s faith in Hashem and strong will that has prevented his going stir crazy from his ordeal. What, pray tell, is Meir Ettinger’s crime? No crime has been attributed to him and he has already been completely cleared from having any part in the Duma case which is another kettle of fish that smells about six weeks old. Meir Ettinger has not been charged with any crime yet he has undergone extensive and abusive interrogations. The presumed threat he poses is that he desires that the Israeli government be a Biblical government with a King, not him as King, and the rebuilding of the Temple and the reestablishment of the tribal lands and priesthood. I can hear some now wondering what might be wrong with dreams and we would say exactly except Meir Ettinger is the grandson of Rabbi Meir Kahane and that makes his visions dangerous. That is the position of the government who feel that this young man’s dreams for his nation to return to its biblical root automatically, because of his bloodline, a threat to their power and offices. Should I hold such desires, one must wonder if I too would find myself locked away from the world in administrative detention indefinitely.
Recently the detention of Meir Ettinger was requesting a reprieve long enough to go and attend the Brit Milah for his newborn son after spending the majority of his wife’s pregnancy in confinement unable to be with her through the miracles of life nor was he permitted to be present at his son’s birth. The Brit Milah is a very important moment in a newborn male’s life as this is his accepting of the covenant with Hashem as was the promise made with Abraham. But the secular Supreme Court which remains appointed by a small cabal of leftist jurists year after year as the manner for the selection of judges by the Judicial Selection Committee which consists of Justice Minister who is the Chairman; Cabinet Minister, chosen by the Cabinet; Two Knesset Members, chosen by the Knesset, since 1992 they usually appoint one member from the coalition and one from the opposition; two members of the Bar Association, usually selected by the two largest factions in the bureau; the Chief Justice, and two other judges of the Supreme Court who are replaced every three years by the panel of judges, the selection is usually by seniority. As these organization and at least one Knesset Minister and likely two if not all three members of the court which in most instances places often six but almost always five liberal to extreme leftists appointing new justices. In rare occasions a judge is chosen and they are then found to have been a closet conservative who believes in strict application of the law and not administrating laws from the court, a common practice of late along with choosing to nullify laws without any challenger calling for a review which was presumably beyond the courts power, but power is what you can get away with more often than what is written. This liberal body of Judges decided that Meir Ettinger and his thoughts are so dangerous that there could not be sufficient security set up so as to assure he would not taint the minds of anybody attending the Brit Milah. They did rule with great generosity to allow the Brit Milah to be held inside the prison and allowing a maximum of fifteen guests, at least there would be a minion if two thirds of the guests were male, with each guest meeting requirements and after they passed a deep background check, which takes a month so therefore no guests and potentially the child might be determined to be a risk being the great-grandson of Rabbi Meir Kahane, already decidedly a genetically tainted family whose mere bloodline is a threat to the establishment.
The complete idiocy and spitefulness against the family of Rabbi Meir Kahane who was assassinated by a Palestinian gunman in New York City and one son and his wife murdered (pictured above with Rabbi Meir Kahane on the right at their wedding) in an ambush as they were returning home by a number of shooters lying in wait. The perpetrators were never brought to justice for the murder of an innocent couple. This administrative detention is purely out of spite and fear of a family which does not necessarily believe that all is perfect with the government. They and others believe that things should be different, but have never shown any signs of following any path for change other than through the existing system. These individuals include Meir Ettinger and friends and the many followers of the teachings of Rabbi Meir Kahane and are opposed to the current ways in Israel using methods which consist of pure hate and spite and are very unbecoming. Such a detention for thoughts should have every last Israeli up in arms against this atrocity as if it be Meir Ettinger today it could just as easily be any of us tomorrow. This act of malice needs condemnation by anybody with a heart that knows the pride and wonder of having a new child and the joys of those first months and the special moments, a Brit Milah, the naming, their first blessings and a myriad of other events which from all appearances Meir Ettinger will be denied because he dares to dream of change and of an Israel which is ruled by Torah and not men.
