Israel’s Murdering Terrorist Prisoners for Body-Bags: Insane!

.
Commentary;

The are quite of people spinning the handling of murdering Arab Islamic terrorists back to the enemy in exchange for body-remains as restoration of national pride and national strength.

To return to the points made last week regarding the campaign for large numbers of people to change their social networking profile pictures to Shalit’s;

The Rabbanim draw a strong distinction and bounds between pidyon Sh’vu’im — rescuing or redeeming captives and redeeming captives in a way which brings the entire nation into dire peril. [...]  Click here to read more.

Orlev: Deal’s Message, “Israel Will Never Abandon Soldiers.”

.

Commentary;

It appears as if MK Zevulun Orlev has gone over to the other side, as if he was ever on the side Torah, morality and ethics in the first place.

After the cabinet voted to release Samil Kuntar and slews of other terrorist for Jewish captive body-bags, Orlev is quoted as follows;

“The deal for the captives broadcasts an important message, that ‘every Jewish mother must know that the state of Israel will never abandon its soldiers.'”

Regime Agenda Spins: The Absence (??) of Terror Attacks

.
Commentary;

One could or would think, from the pro-longed absence of war-like news, that “peace(sic)” is breaking out all over as terrorist-captive swaps dominate the news. Think again!! The lack of news (or possible news censorship) could all be spin-based! MB

Parsha Chukas 5768: Tefillot for Tikkun: Generational Demarcation Point?

.
by Moshe Burt

The placement in Torah of our Parsha Chukat and the Parah Adumah raises questions as to why the Parah Adumah and it’s Halachot are mentioned here in our Parsha; only after Korach’s rebellion and after the continued murmuring of the Am against Moshe Rabbeinu, and after the plague which killed thousands only ending with Aaron’s carrying an incense pan amongst the people (upon Moshe’s instruction), and after the story of the rods.

“Rabbi Artscroll” presents one answer to the question of placement in a commentary in The Stone Chumash on the words at the beginning of our Parsha “…el Moshe, v’el Aaron” [1] The answer speaks of the symbolism of the Parah Adumah (the Red Heiffer) coming to atone for the sin of the Eigel Zahav (the Golden Calf) “… as if to say let the Mother come and clean up the mess left by her child…” [...]  Click here to read more.

Why I Can’t Change My Facebook Picture to Shalit’s

.

Commentary;

Although I want to see kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit freed, back in Israel with his parents, relatives and friends, and pray for it on ever occasion, I have a real big problem with the proliferation of Shalit pictures being posted to profiles on Facebook, MySpace and other social networking sites.

The problem I have is surely not with the act itself which I sincerely believe to be a genuine, sincere grassroots display of unity with and love for a a Jewish brother.

My problem is with the perception and message of these pictures alongside the Israeli government’s actions and mindset of appeasement, equivocation, lack of honor. [...]  Click here to read more.
