One Year Later

From Shiloh Musings:

The following is an excerpt from a drasha delivered by the Bostoner Rebbe Shlita in his Beit Medrash in Har Nof, on Shabbat Parshat Pinchas, shortly after the war broke out.

"Exactly one year ago, the inhabitants of Eretz Yisrael despised the land and were willing to sacrifice parts of the country into enemy hands, enemies who did not even wish to own the land. These people felt that it was their choice to decide which parts of the land were theirs to give and to keep. Today, one year later, they see that even those parts that they wished to continue perpetuating and keeping as their own are not secure."

Thanks for the "double-plug" [2-pronged, I guess]. I hope your readers take the time to read my post @ Shiloh Musings, where I have also reworked the translation of the "Haifa confessional" e-mail that was posted here yesterday. In addition, the context of the Bostoner Rebbe's comments are found in my post.

Yitz: I also added a link to Shiloh Musings on the sidebar as well :)

Had Israel stayed in gush katif, would there really be less missles falling on sderot? they didn't just start 10 months ago.

Ittay: I think the answer to that question is quite obvious.

The presence of Jewish towns in Gaza could have given an assist to a real military effort to eliminate the terrorist rocket launchers. The problem was that this effort wasn't mounted while these towns still existed, because the government was blinding itself to acts of war. The government had shirked its responsibility to protect its citizens in certain, less favored, parts of the country.

Events are intensifying, when it comes close to a year after expulsion from Gaza.
