"Our father, our king, nullify the schemes of our destroyers. Please merciful God, with your many mercies, annul severe decrees and don't give your land to disgrace, to be controlled by gentiles. Protect and save us from our enemies, and give us the valor and courage to build and plant your holy land, and may we live to inherit our land.”

Leading Zionist Orthodox Rabbis Call For Prayer Against Peace Process

Leading Zionist Orthodox rabbis reportedly are calling for a special prayer "for the wholeness of the land [of Israel,” to be added to the Amidah prayer after reports of progress in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority were reported in the media.
The rabbis are reportedly worried about "the growing pressure on the prime minister to agree to additional withdrawals, Heaven forbid,” Ynet reported.
The Amidah prayer is the central prayer in all Jewish streams and is said (at least) three times daily by Orthodox Jews.
The special prayer the rabbis want to add to it was reportedly written years ago by the now deceased former Sefardi Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu – a convicted terrorist who as a leader of the Brit HaKanaim (Covenant of the Zealots) terror group tried to overthrow the young government of Israel six decades ago – against the plan to "tear [apart] our ancestral land."
"Our father, our king, nullify the schemes of our destroyers. Please merciful God, with your many mercies, annul severe decrees and don't give your land to disgrace, to be controlled by gentiles. Protect and save us from our enemies, and give us the valor and courage to build and plant your holy land, and may we live to inherit our land,” Eliyahu’s prayer reportedly reads.
In their manifesto, the rabbis also reportedly urged that Eliyahu’s special prayer be said when opening the ark in synagogues where the Torah scrolls are kept and when lighting Shabbat candles.
The rabbis’ manifesto was reportedly signed by Rabbis Chaim Druckman, Dov Lior, Shmuel Eliyahu (Mordechai Eliayhu’s son), Dov Wolpe, Avichai Ronsky, Yehoshua Shapira and others.
Druckman, an Israel Prize winner, is considered the de facto head of the Zionist Orthodox movement and has come under intense scrutiny for openly enabling and protecting convicted pedophiles and attacking their victims.
Lior is West Bank settlers’ leading rabbi who is notorious for his support for Jewish terrorists.
Shmuel Eliyahu is the racist son of Mordechai Eliyahu who was a candidate for Sefardi chief rabbi in this year’s elections.
Wolpe is a Chabad rabbi known for his call for civil war to stop the peace process.
Ronsky is the IDF’s former chief rabbi.
Shapira heads Yeshivat HaKotel in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City and is a a very conservative voice in the Zionist Orthodox Movement. He was a candidate for Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Israel this year and is known for his opposition to attempts to make secular Israelis’ contacts with the country’s chief rabbinate less difficult.
"For several months now, peace negotiations are being held around the demand for additional concessions of parts of the Land of Israel.
"We can see for ourselves that government ministers, deputy ministers and Knesset members are alarmed by disastrous plans as well, and are issuing statements these days focusing on one matter: The wholeness of the Land of Israel is in danger!,” the rabbis wrote in the manifesto which was distributed in synagogues around the country for Shabbat and published in the Zionist Orthodox press over the weekend.
