The Israeli Government Wants the Wrong Prisoners Released

Before last week's Rosh HaShanah (Jewish New Year) holiday in Israel, ministers in the government were pondering when to release Arab prisoners who have killed Jews. Ostensibly this release would be done to strengthen the so-called moderate PLO leader Mahmoud Abbas in order to give him "Jew-free" our biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria ("the West Bank"). Another discussion took place about the actual Israeli neo-Nazi cell arrested for harassing Jews and painting swastikas around the country.

The enemies of the Jewish people, whether they are Arabs who participate in terror attacks or Russian-born neo-Nazis (who were permitted to become Israeli because they have one Jewish grandparent) have no place in the Jewish homeland. They must be tried and punished, and they are certainly not to be citizens of Israel. Manhigut Yehudit will never submit to blackmail to give away our precious Land of Israel in order to gain empty promises of our enemies, and we will not remain silent in the face of any form of anti-Semitism.

The ONLY prisoners that must be released are the ten Jews being held in captivity in Arab countries and right here in the United States.

Moshe Feiglin, President of Manhigut Yehudit, has made clear that as Prime Minister of Israel, he will not come to the United States until the US government releases the captive Jonathan Pollard. As far as the Arabs kidnapping our soldiers or not returning our prisoners, they will know reflexively that they will suffer dire consequences. Neo-Nazis will not be permitted to breathe the air of Eretz Yisrael.
The Jewish captives who must be released are:

Eliahu ben Shaoul (Cohen)
Yehonatan ben Malka (Pollard)
Gilad ben Aviva (Shalit)
Ehud ben Malka (Goldwasser)
Eldad ben Tova (Regev)
Zecharia Shlomo ben Miriam (Baumel)
Tzvi ben Penina (Feldman)
Yekutiel Yehuda Nachman ben Sara (Katz)
Ron ben Batya (Arad)
Guy ben Rina (Hever)
We bemoan the fact that the present leaders of Israel are so interested in giving away our homeland by chasing the false peace of the Oslo Accords, and are so uninterested in bringing home true Jewish heroes and in reinforcing the Jewish identity of our People.

The Land of Israel is our heritage and we will forever keep it. The People of Israel is as one and must be kept whole. Authentic Jewish Leadership does not sacrifice Jewish lives by placing its faith in any type of false god.
Manhigut Yehudit will never compromise when it comes to the safety of Jews and the return of our captives.
