is there every room for anger

Fabulous video series, made me think
Thanks so much for producing this series. Very entertaining with an equally thoughtful message. Like you said, you can't fix something, until you first understand what the problem is. Great work!

Needs Captions on this Important Video
Please put captions since there are others who are unable to understand your video. Otherwise I read just the articles but think if this video has important message, it should be accessible for others who are deaf, hard of hearing, or can process better visually.

This message provides excellent insight. My personal way of dealing with anger is this - all anger is evil - so if I feel anger I will not react in any way, until I can take a few days and think about the situation with zero-percent emotion - pure logic. Then the truth and God's words and ways always lead me to a proactive response if any. It takes years to develop and something I still need to remain conscious of even at 51 years of age.

Excellent explanation of how baseless hatred relates to Tisha B'av, what baseless hatred actually is, and how normal people are vulnerable to it. Love the videos and illustrations!

The Sinat Hiyam of today is the silencing of Jewish critics of the Occupation
The Jewish Community is engaging in repressing any voices that do not follow the Netanyahu line. Anyone who questions the Occupation, the Settler Movement or the endless wars is defined as a self hating Jew and ignored.

Horrible. While the Jewish people are under daily terrorist attack and plausible threat of annihilation for the crime of living in their ancient homeland, 0.2% of the area of the Arab League, a commenter using a Jewish-sounding name is rationalizing terrorism and promoting ethnic cleansing of Jews from their tiny sliver of land, in order that the barbaric savages of Hamas and the rest of the Muslim Brotherhood be able to establish their sharia-compliant caliphate. Self-hating? Try Jew-hating.
