(Kung Fu, a Chinese martial art, is renowned for using an opponents force and motion against him.)
Hirhirim has an interesting discussion of a recent halachic ruling by the rabbi of Ofra, a West Bank Jewish town, permitting construction projects with non-Jewish workers to continue building on Shabbat.
In a bit of impressive halachic kung-fu, he uses the Satmar Rav's position that "there is currently no mitzvah to settle the land" to prove that building on the Land on Shabbat is permitted.
Well worth a read.
