Transformation not war

I see that Israel is going through a dilemma. If Israel does not respond to Hamas missiles then Hamas will keep on sending more missiles to Israel and if Israel responds then they will keep them busy fighting while Iran continues building the bomb. In the physical world we may think that in order for Israel to survive in the future is to get as much land buffer as possible to secure itself just like it did in 1967. But even if it did, that will not be enough. In the future the Muslim world will be able to reach everywhere in the world. And their first goal is the destruction of Israel. The second is to make sure everyone follows Shariah law, and for non-Muslims to pay the Jizya tax in addition to the common tax and to be in a state subjection to the Islamic authority or be killed Quran 9:29. The bottom line is for people to respect, appreciate, forgive and care without betrayal and that is how we express our love to God.

Words of Wisdom from Rav Salomon

I am happy to see a voice of reason in the world. I also agree with commenter Doron, know who the real enemy is.

A voice of reason

Thank you. What a reasonable response to a silly situation. True. If I were a Jew I would think everyone would be better off as a Jew. If I were a Christian I would think everyone would be better off as a Christian. If I were secular..., if I were religious..., if I were a Republican..., if I were a Democrat..., if I were Likud..., if I were married..., if I were single..., If my child would marry within his own religion... It is the source of our personal arrogance, the source of our relational conflicts. Is she dangerous? Not any more than some of our neighbors who think we should all be like them. We ignore them; we can ignore her.

This is tne most sensible thing I have yet heard on the controversy.

Rabbi Solomon's words are healing and they help to place the matter into perspective. This is indeed a merchandizing effort. However, I myself have begun to see parallels between this author's methods and the history of Germany in the buildup of the Third Reich. I am alarmed and concerned. I do not think that our society can afford to ignore any extremists who label, categorize and demean groups of people, especially on religious grounds. Ms. Coulter bears watching carefully (from a safe distance).

A friend of the Jews

Coulter's "offensive" statement follows her conservative faith-based philosophy and values. I am not offended by it since I feel secure in my own Jewish faith. Besides, Coulter, who comes from the conservative- right, is a friend of the Jews and of the state of Israel. We cannot say the same about those who come from the liberal-left, namely, the main-stream media, university campuses, hollywood and most of the "left-coast."

Judaism will be better off if liberal, American Jews come to embrace their faith as warmly as Coulter embraces hers.
