Que penser de cette visite d'un "viel ennemi" d'Israël? Cela fait-il partie des prospections informelles d'une Administration Obama aux abois, cherchant sa voie ou à ménager les susceptibilités israéliennes, au moment où l'on parle le plus de "gel" ou de "croissance naturelle", ici expliquée par les familles qui veulent se fonder, trouver mariage, avoir des enfants, naturellement???

Former US president meets with residents of Jerusalem-vicinity settlements to 'listen' to their side. Despite heavy opposition by many settlers, local council leader says he believes the visit 'changed' Carter's perceptions

Former US President Jimmy Carter, generally known for being sympathetic to Israel's rivals, made some surprising statements to settlers on Sunday, during a visit to Gush Etzion.

 

"I never imagined that Gush Etzion would be transferred to Palestinian hands," Carter said following a meeting with local council leader Shaul Goldstein. He explained that the area is very close to the 1967 armistice line and will likely stay part of Israel forever.

The meeting with Goldstein took place at the latter's home, at Carter's request, and included several prominent members of the Gush Etzion community.

 

Among the participants were religious leaders Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein and Har Zion yeshiva director Yehoshua Altman. Also there were two women from bereaved families, Ruthi Gillis who lost her husband in the Karmei Tzur terror attack and Sherry Mandel, whose 13-year-old son Koby was killed by terrorists near their home in Tekoa.

 

The group was joined by a young couple that recently wed, who were there to explain to Carter that restrictions on natural growth in the settlements meant there was no room for them to raise a family in their own community.

The meeting lasted an hour and a half, with Carter saying from the onset that he had come to "listen." Goldstein showed the former president a map of Gush Etzion from 1951 and the legal documentation proving his father had lawfully purchased the family's land in the region.

 

At the end of the meeting, Carter said he had learned new things and added that he had a long-standing commitment to Israel and had been working to bring peace to Israel for 30 years but also to bring peace and security to "Israel's neighbors."

 

Goldstein said the meeting was an important one, noting that Carter had never visited in the area or met settlers. "I think he left the meeting a little different than when he came in," Goldstein said.

 

However, there were others in Gush Etzion and surrounding settlements who were unhappy about the outspoken former president's visit.

 

A leaflet signed by representatives from Neve Daniel, Efrat, Gush Etzion and Kiryat Arba-Hebron, and titled 'Jimmy Carter is not wanted in Gush Etzion,' stated that "Carter is known for his flagrant hostility to Israel and is trying to paint himself as a fair mediator in the Jewish-Arab conflict, but is not eligible for such a role."

"He is not fair and far from being objective. Carter always has and always will be an advocate for those who want to destroy Israel. The fact that he pushed his anti-Israel agenda under the guise of a good-willed, peace-seeking mediator who is allegedly willing to hear 'both sides' makes him even more dangerous," the pamphlet continued.

Magie de la langue hébraïque


A tous nos chers lecteurs.

 

Ne vous est-il jamais venu à l'esprit d'en savoir un peu plus sur le titre de ce blog ?

Puisque nous nous sommes aujourd'hui habillés de bleu, il conviendrait de rentrer plus a fond dans l'explication du mot lessakel.

En fait Lessakel n'est que la façon française de dire le mot léhasskil.

L'hébreu est une langue qui fonctionne en déclinant des racines.

Racines, bilitères, trilitères et quadrilitères.

La majorité d'entre elle sont trilitères.

Aussi Si Gad a souhaité appeler son site Lessakel, c'est parce qu'il souhaitait rendre hommage à l'intelligence.

Celle qui nous est demandée chaque jour.

La racine de l'intelligence est sé'hel שכל qui signifie l'intelligence pure.

De cette racine découlent plusieurs mots

Sé'hel > intelligence, esprit, raison, bon sens, prudence, mais aussi croiser

Léhasskil > Etre intelligent, cultivé, déjouer les pièges

Sé'hli > intelligent, mental, spirituel

Léhistakel > agir prudemment, être retenu et raisonnable, chercher à comprendre

Si'hloute > appréhension et compréhension

Haskala >  Instruction, culture, éducation

Lessa'hlen > rationaliser, intellectualiser

Heschkel > moralité

Si'htanout > rationalisme

Si'hloul > Amélioration, perfectionnement

 

Gageons que ce site puisse nous apporter quelques lumières.

Aschkel pour Lessakel.
