I finally accomplished Something in Bible Class

While other members of the class were trying to figure out why the source of the Nile wasn't the Mediterranean Sea I found something that was really worth thinking about.

Out Of The Mailbag - To YW Editor (Defending Our Brothers In Sderot)
February 12, 2008

Dear Yeshivaworld, the following letter/warning has been sent to all Jewish members of the Knesset. It was emailed to me as well, and I was wondering what your readership would say to this letter.

*To all Members of the Knesset:

Our holy Torah commands us “Thou Shall Not Stand By Thy Brothers Blood”!

Jews worldwide are absolutely appalled that the State of Israel does not defend the Jewish People in its own land.

We will no longer stand by and watch as our fellow Jews are fired upon and you the Government sit and do nothing about it.

Jewish exiles in the US including New York, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore and many others are preparing a campaign buy the residents of Sderot and Ashkelon rockets so that they can do the job you refuse to do.

We are giving you 1 week to cut off the electricity and fuel to Gaza and begin bombing the Arab neighborhoods from which the rockets are being launched. We expect the Government of Israel to act with dignity and resolve! If you the government of Israel will not stand up then we will!

If you are afraid that the US government will condemn you than do not worry. The Jewish exiles in the US will back you up on capital hill. We will mobilize all are forces to pressure the US government so that they not pressure you.

In 1 week we will start raising funds to arm Sderot with rockets that they can fire back at the enemy population of Gaza.

We will send you this letter once a day for the next 7 days including Motzei Shabbat.

I hope you will respond.

*This letter was not sent to any Arab member of Knesset. The presence of any non-Jew in the Knesset is a violation of Torah Law as the Ramabam clearly writes in the Mishna Torah, Hilchot Milachim, Perek 6, Halacha 1.

Head over there , and read the rest of the comments! It's so worth it. And as an aside, did the editors of TYW run this one by Da'as Torah.

And Don't forget THE SEFORIM SALE!
