Well, I attended the rally against Ahmadinejad. And I am happy I was there, since I think it would be insane to allow a madman nuclear weapons, especially as he wants to kill Jews.
But I also felt like I wanted to cry.
Why? Because, of course, the Neturei Karta also made an appearance. And people somehow feel justified in determining that they are not Jews, in spitting at them or shouting slurs at them. Do you really think God desires to see this just before Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur? Does nobody remember the civil war that took place between Ephraim and the men of Gilead? What about the war after the pilegesh in Givah? And weren't those very legitimate reasons to fight? And yet, didn't they end in complete sadness for us all?
Here we stand, spitting at our brethren, cursing at them, who yes, may be mistaken, and the media tapes us, and we think this is right?
If they were merely against Zionism, there would be no problem. The problem comes in that they are perceived as being PRO-Ahmadinejad, who would like to kill us all. I would be curious to know whether that is really the case- do they really want all of us dead? Somehow I imagine not. They are probably naive and think that Ahmadinejad will destroy Israel, the state and country, but not the Jews therein. Let us hope so, anyway...
The point is, the rally was AGAINST AHMADINEJAD...not against our confused brethren.
