Number of emergency orders reduced by two-thirds in recent years. The state of emergency has existed since 1948.
Israel will continue to be in a national state of emergency for at least three months, as the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee approved the extension of that state on Tuesday.
All of the committee’s members, except for Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On, approved the motion.
The national state of emergency has been extant since the country was founded in 1948, and is based on laws from the British Mandate for Palestine. It includes hundreds of orders covering security issues as well as civil and economic ones.
A task force consisting of members of the Foreign Affairs and Defense and Law, Constitution and Justice committees is meant to reduce the number of such orders, following a 1999 High Court decision on the matter.

I knew that Israel has not implemented national laws in the districts of Judea and Samaria, but rule in these areas by “temporarily military ordinance”.
But I was not aware that the Laws in the whole of Israel is set a side, by a declaration of emergency. And that this emergency has exited since the very formation of Israel in 1948.
The reason for this emergency, is not that Jews desire to live in a moratorium. The reason is that the enemies of the Jewish people has not been willing to recognize the Jewish state.
When Israel is attacked, the government must be permitted to act within minutes. If not, the state of Israel will be dead and gone.
Wise men will never forget 1973. All sensible Jews knows that they have to be on their guard. The Arabs decided to attack Israel on the holiest day in Judaism, the day of atonement.
Only Egypt and Jordan has entered into peace agreements with Israel. The rest of the Muslims continue day and night, their ploy for the destruction of the Jewish homeland.
I wish I could promise the Jewish people an easy going from here, and that there would be “shalom” in the entire Middle East. But unfortunately, this is a spiritual matter, not a logical.
The created being behind this evil is Satan. He can not tolerate a Jewish state to exist. Because its existence is a proof of Jesus the Messiah being capable of returning to His own people, whom He has gathered home to the city of His return.
“Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
Evangelical Christians better flow with what the Messiah is doing in our time. If we get disconnected, it might have the most horrific eternal consequences. Yeshua might say on the day of His return: “I never knew you”.
