Adam, is your full Hebrew name Adam ben Rivka?

Wow. What an incredible piece.

What a contrast to what a video of a Palestinian "freedom fighter" to whom human life is cheap would be.
The soldier is clearly in incredible pain over the innocents he's had to hurt. Wow. What a human being.

The time has come to stop worrying about what the world thinks about us since it won't agree, and to care only to do only that which is righteous in the eyes of HASHEM. The God of Israel is the One and Only of this world and its inhabitants and of all creation. Worry only after His opinion; it is enough.
