Join Drive for "Only Jewish Labor"
by Hillel Fendel
Marking one month since the first bulldozer terror attack, in which three Jews were murdered by an Arab construction worker, rabbis and public figures will call for "Only Jewish Labor" in a memorial ceremony and rally at the site. The event, probably the largest one of its kind, will be held Sunday evening at 7:30 PM, on Jaffa Rd. in Jerusalem, in the area in which the attack occurred.
A similar attack, carried out by an Arab worker from eastern Jerusalem driving a tractor two weeks later, ended with no deaths.
These and other attempted attacks by Arab workers against their Jewish employers or others have given a thrust to the campaign to employ Jewish labor in place of Arabs.Twenty-seven leading rabbis have joined the public call for Jewish Labor, under the motto, "Don’t give them guns, don’t give them tractors, don't give them jobs."The motto is an outgrowth of the "Don't give them guns" rallying cry against then-Prime Ministers Rabin and Peres in the early years of the Oslo Accords. In the framework of the Oslo Accords, Rabin and Peres gave PA Chairman Yasser Arafat land and guns in exchange for promises of peace.
This is a big step on the path to redemption.
