From Robin Ticker: "This Dinner is not just another Dinner. We are not illegal occupiers of Judea and Samaria! This is Our Land. It is the Promised Land, promised to the chlidren of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Jews of today! Netanyahu and his advisors have forgotten their Jewish identity. Perhaps it's understandable to be forgetful of there is a gun pointing in your direction. We the Jewish people must remind ourselves who we are and G-d's Covenant and Promise with our people. If they destroy more homes will we be able to look ourselves in the mirror and say, I had no part in this and yes I tried to stop it from happenng. Al Taamod al Dam Reyacha. Those who Bless Israel will be Blessed!
From Gush Katif Museum Dinner Committee: "LARGE CROWD EXPECTED AT GUSH KATIF MUSEUM EVENT, SATURDAY NIGHT, MARCH 9, TO PROTEST FURTHER EXPULSION PLANS DEMANDED BY OBAMA. Ahead of Obama's upcoming visit, rumblings of "withdrawal of Jews" from Judea and Samaria, "expulsions" and "unilateral steps" are heard once again. The appointments of Hagel and Kerry and the nomination of Brennan should send a clear warning to Israel and Diaspora Jews that Obama does not "have Israel's back". The upcoming dinner to benefit the Gush Katif Museum in Jerusalem will be an opportunity to protest any surrender of Jewish land and to demonstrate solidarity on behalf of a whole Israel – Yisrael HaShlaima. The expulsion from Gush Katif is the clearest evidence that land surrendered by Israel will be used for the purpose of creating an additional space from which to spread terror to innocent civilians and ultimately to weaken and dominate Europe and the US. A visit to this museum serves as a powerful educational tool to any visitor and coveys the message that the policy of surrendering land to people who continue to engage and abet terror is folly. The purpose of the Museum is to preserve the story of the horrors of the expulsion from Gush Katif for the specific purpose of declaring NEVER AGAIN!. Yet, demolitions have happened since and threaten to continue. We must protest against any such actions. A strong showing will send a strong message to PM Netanyahu that Diaspora Jews and Christians will fight demolition decrees and continue to stand up for our rightful claim to our Biblical Homeland."
