The Rd sea dilemma

Today we are standing at the edge of the Red Sea. Behind us is
Pharoh and his legion of chariots and nihalation awaits us. What must this one man do?
Today our Egypt is Iran and our Red Sea is its nuclear dream and Israel's Prime Minister must decide.His decision may affect us for the next 3000 years.Will he make the right decision?

Deal righteously with the enemies of Israel

RIght now, the leaders of Israel do not do right by its people. They stand by and do nothing while there are murderers of our people within our very own borders, blatantly stating their intentions for us. They do nothing to put a final end to this. It does mean making some hard decisions that would necessarily be politically incorrect. But as Hashem has put our leaders in charge, I cannot believe it is because He wishes them to sit idly by while the blood of our people continues to be shed. The mother of Adelle Chaya, Adva, her daughter is fighting for her life because of a terrorist attack on a bus, said it, that we are being tested right now. They are not throwing flowers at us, she said, but stones and they mean to murder us. Someone must stand and act, and do something. Israel must stand up for itself against the bullies that seek our downfall.

Crossing the Red sea

Perhaps a leader and a unifying vision to bring the different groups of Jews together and to bring peace?
A Jewish state is a must , I think, so that the Holocaust can never be possible again.
Also, spread your beautiful faith and way of life, without falling in the trap of becoming a "proselitizing religion" i.e. welcome sincere proselytes. But this process might be already taking place, with the Information Age we live in now.

Amazing...

I am puzzled in a constant and unable to find a reasonable answer regarding Israel right to exist. We have Jews around the world who have taken actions and have crossed their red sea to remain temporarily safe from terrorists hate. However, the very Jews hater like the Arabs, PA, Iran and the likes continuously blame Irael for their own misfortune of poverty and crime. Why can't they employ that energy towards forward progress for themself, and human based education for their children who would become their future ratious Leader? I think that no matter how much we pray with all of our heart and our might, anti-semitism will continue to be sowed and havested to extinguish the Jew and Israel from the surface of the earth. Why Israel needs collect any money for the PA, then give them millions it collects in Taxes for them. Why accept five hundred millions or billions (not too sure of the right zmount) from Arabs to set-up funds to satisfy PA demands to keep their religious and cultural beliefs presence in the East Jerusalem region. Thr question still rdmains...how or in what way can we stop the hatred, and "take action" to stop this abhorrent abuse?? Perhaps by increasing Jewis community everywhere. Thanks for a topic or ssue of Very deep concern. Chag Sameach.

make Aliyah

We need a leader to get all of us to make Aliyah - to be where the Jews should be - to settle and build up the land - all of us. Imagine how great that would be. As it is now, it is hard for us (including me) to really make the move). I think we need some help and a leader to bring us all there.
