This is a presentation by Matthew Hausman, Esq. at Ahavath Torah Congregation, Stoughton, Massachusetts on December 8, 2013. His presentation on Twisting Jewish Value to Promote False Peace addresses those who discard traditional values for non-Jewish belief systems they consider more relevant. Such are those who believe that forcing Israel to accept any “peace” is a Jewish imperative, even if that peace discounts Jewish nationhood, lends credence to a Palestinian national myth that has no historical foundation, and compromises her security and integrity as a Jewish Nation. Topics that Hausman covers include: the Oslo Process,The Faulty Premise of the Two-State Solution , The Erosion of Traditional Values, Traditional Jewish Concepts of Justice and Compromise,
