Their first priority of their platform was unity among Jews who respect Hashem and Torah but not with anti-Torah Jews or goyim or our enemies. As I have learned from Rabbi Kahane, unity can only come around Torah and Hashem. Their can be no unity without them. This wasn't just a slogan! There was real potential for unity here as we saw by the many respected Rabbis across the spectrum who supported Yachad.
Their platform declared;
"All aspects of running a modern state can be informed by our Torah. We will operate under the guidance of Torah leaders."
"We firmly oppose laws that violate our eternal Torah principles."
"We hold that all of Yehuda and Shomron must be included in the sovereign State of Israel and will remove barriers to settling the land."
"Yachad will not give up one centimeter of the land of Israel"
"The flow of illegals threatens the safety and wellbeing of the residents of those in those neighborhoods where they have settled"
I didn't expect Yachad to ever sit in the Knesset. Either the powers that be would cheat them out of votes (the news was full of reports of voter fraud and corruption yesterday) or would find someway to disqualify them like they did Rabbi Kahane.
The main point was to show Hashem and the world that at least a minority of Jews are not happy with the status quo. That we want unity, that we want to observe all of the mitzvot in all of our G-d given land, that we want a Torah government or in other words WE WANT MASHIACH NOW! And if he will send Mashiach we will follow him.
Thanks to Yachad our voice was heard.
"Marzel took to Facebook late Tuesday night to address his supporters as the counting of polls was under way and initial results indicated the list had possibly fallen short.I second Marzel, the Knesset was only a means not a goal.
"We will continue will full force!" pledged Marzel. "If we make it in or not, the Knesset is only a means and not a goal! Our goal is the land of Israel and we will continue to defend it in any situation, from within (the Knesset) or without!""
I just want to add I respect those who chose not to vote. I believe they chose what was right for them. In the end it was Hashem's will that Yachad not get in. So what is next? to be continued......
