Cosequences Of Mamlachtiyuth

11 Teveth 5766

The following was written as a comment to the
news report --

"IDF Attempts to Destroy Homes in Gush Etzion 'Settlement Bloc,'" 12:54 Jan 11, '06 / 11 Tevet 5766 by Ezra HaLevi:

I assume that the residents of Sde. Bo'az are good and hard-working Jews. Avodah Ivrith gets them points in my book. Unfortunately, most residents of Gush Etzion are "mamlachtim," Jews who don't like to deal with "stiroth" between the gov't and the Torah. They are OFTEN willing to make pil-pul type Torah compromises in order to rid themselves of the "stiroth."

When will you mamlachtim start putting Torah first? When YOUR homes are threatened? I hope it never comes that.

Stop listening to the likes of Lichtenstein, Melchior, and yes your precious little, popular, Shlomo Aviner, who casually blows off the p'saq din against him by Gedolei HaDor, and you MAY have a chance.

Get a real rav.
