Hear ye, hear ye

10 Shevat, 5766

To our honored brothers and sisters, may G-d protect them:

It is with pain and sorrow that we pen the following words. Who's hands will not tremble and who's heart will not quiver when we hear about the terrible injustice that is currently taking place in our midst. An injustice that the eye has never seen and that the ear has never heard. How we pray for the day of our redemption when all our suffering will end.

We are referring, of course, to the terrible tragedy that has befallen our dear friends, the good people of Denmark, may G-d protect them. The tragedy that we mean is that which is known as "economic embargo". The evil plot of all who rise against them should fail.

We therefore call upon all those who hear our voice and who respect the words of our sages, men, women and children, to rise up against the evil of our enemies and to do all in their power to counteract their evil. We proclaim that it is incumbent on all followers of our faith to use the power of the wealth that G-d has given you, to purchase as much as possible of that singular Danish product that has brought good cheer to the hearts of the downtrodden and laughter to the mouths of the depressed, may G-d protect them.

To this we affix our signature on the tenth day of the month of Shevat, 5766 years from the creation of the Universe.

Committee for the preservation of the spirituous.
