Yesterday the Women for Israel's Tomorrow ("Women in Green") and friends began a 33-hour vigil in front of the Prime Minister's residence because, in the words of Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katsover,
It is impossible to continue this way.When they wrote the email, they had just visited the home of Eliav Gelman, hy"d, from Karmei Tsur, the 33rd fatality in this most recent terror wave, which began on Rosh HaShana 5776 (Sept. 13, 2015). The sign above refers to the way the nations order us around — and our leadership obeys, telling us that this the path to being a normal nation. Many of us Israelis disagree with that explanation because the results speak for themselves. Or, rather, they shout loudly. Because we are a nation of returnees, a large percentage of us remember how a normal nation is supposed to behave, and we are not fooled. Above all, we believe that Israel is to be a normal nation on its own terms, and not those of the rest of the world.
We must put an end to the routine, in honor of the memory of those who have been murdered.
We must stop the stuttering, first of all in the matter of our ownership of the Land.
We must, once and for all, cut off the hope of the enemy. Yes. The hope. It is not despair that drives the enemy, but hope. The hope of establishing a Palestinian state in the heart of our Land. This is what they are fighting for. And this hope must be cut off by the application of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria and the implementation of sovereignty in our entire Land.
There must be a final resolution of the most basic question regarding our existence and when the enemies see our government's determination, they will understand that they must accept reality. This is what we will say today and tomorrow to the prime minister near his residence in Jerusalem for 33 hours. Join us!
I was at the vigil yesterday, and I am still clarifying until when they will be there today. By my reckoning, ending at 6 PM (18:00) will fulfill the whole 33 hours because they started at 9 AM (9:00) yesterday. Israelis are invited to attend while it is still happening.
CORRECTION: Nadia Matar wrote me that they started at 6am yesterday, so they will end earlier than I had thought.
More videos are forthcoming. The ones I had access to from yesterday are in Hebrew, below. Each one is less than 5 minutes long.
