Arabs Protest Tree Planting In Negev
« on: January 12, 2022, 04:22:18 PM »
Isn't it prohibited to plant during Shemittah or is this in the parts of the Negev where agricultural laws don't apply? Or is it pikuach nefesh to stop the Arabs from taking over the Land of Israel?

 As I'm aware Rav Dov Lior and Rav Bar Hayim allowed it due to the current situation and it being a State of Milhemit Mitzvah. Land can be lost for generations otherwise.
.   ד  עֹזְבֵי תוֹרָה, יְהַלְלוּ רָשָׁע;    וְשֹׁמְרֵי תוֹרָה, יִתְגָּרוּ בָם
4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked; but such as keep the law contend with them.

ה  אַנְשֵׁי-רָע, לֹא-יָבִינוּ מִשְׁפָּט;    וּמְבַקְשֵׁי יְהוָה, יָבִינוּ כֹל.   
5 Evil men understand not justice; but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
