Chabad Rabbi Sholom Dovber Wolpe wants to publish a book with photographs, names addresses and contact information of all police, soldiers, officers and politicians who backed the Disengagement from Gaza. Ynet reports:
What do the police do when they are looking for criminals? They publish pictures of the offenders and ask the public's help in finding them.
An extreme faction in the Chabad movement has decided to adopt the method, only their 'most wanted' are not criminals, but members of law enforcement agencies and IDF soldiers who were involved in the disengagement.
People who provide information about those in the pictures are promised a reward.
Chabad's attitude towards the IDF is usually amiable. On Jewish holidays they go to army bases and present the soldiers with Hanukkah donuts and Purim parcels of food gifts, for example.
But an extreme sect in the movement, that calls itself the World Headquarters to Save Israel, is launching this new scheme targeting those who participated in the pullout.
Members of the organization are circulating a booklet in settlements, synagogues and places where evacuated settlers are now living. The book has photos of soldiers and police officers who took part in the disengagement. They are asking for the public's help in identifying the individuals in the pictures and providing their names and addresses.
The booklet also includes 'before and after' pictures of houses, families being evacuated and clashes between security forces and the evacuees.
Sentences like "We shall never forget, and we shall never forgive," which is normally used in the context of the Shoah, and "Remember what Ariel Sharon did unto thee," alluding to "Remember what Amalek did unto thee" (Deut.. 25/17), also appear in the pamphlet.
The organization's intention is to later publish a "Black Book" with all the pictures, names and addresses of the "'expulsion perpetrators."…
There is a history of harassment and physical assult against those who backed Disengagement. In a normal country, what Wolpe and his fellow freaks seek to do would be illegal, and Wolpe would be put in jail where he belongs. But Israel is not normal, so this freak will contine his incitement and his harassment (terroristic threats, really) until some poor soldier is, God forbid, killed by a Chabad-influenced extremist.
Wolpe has a bigger following from the Chabad street in Israel than the so-called "mainstream" Chabad leadership does. While it is true that most Chabadniks are not violent, some are. And Wolpe's influence is strongly felt in NRP-settler circles, especially in the most violent extremes of settler culture.
Wolpe is a major backer and the chief theologian, so to speak, of the late Rebbe as the messiah. His publications are plastered with the 'messiah's' picture. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the horrible potential for violence from Wolpe's activism.
He belongs in jail. Let's hope he is put there now, before innocent people are hurt.
