Have we forgotten Operation Protective Edge and the missiles flying over the entire country. Surely Hashem protected us and there were countless miracles. Can we ignore the fact that the gov't of Israel and the military did its part, their hishtadlus, with IDF manning the Iron Dome not to mention the intelligence, airforce and the groundtroops that did the job! No one can deny the threat to the soldiers lives...Arabs leaving behind booby trapped homes, underground tunnels filled with weapons, children used as civilian shields not to mention hospitals, ambulances, schools, UN buildings as well. Why no expression of acknowledgement or Hakoras Hatov? Surely the Tefillot of the Chareidim helped and the fact that some Yeshivot didn't have bein hazemanim in solidarity but we can not disregard the soldiers who actually fought nor the gov't that trained them and gave them weapons. They too prayed as only a soldier whose life is in danger prays. They had on them siddurim and tehillim, tzizit and Tefillin. A true Jewish Army. Please read the Commander Ofer Winter's letter http://shemittahrediscovered.blogspot.com/2014/07/please-fwd-and-let-go-viral-time.html of Givati Brigade.
Perhaps if B'nei Torah synagogue, the shul in Har Nof where the massacre took place, had mispallelim, worshippers, with ammunition on them, as is the case of most Dati Leumi shuls (religious Zionists synagogues) perhaps the terrorists could have been neutralized sooner than the 7 minutes it took for the police to come.
Will you blame the gov't for not providing you equal protection as other Israeli citizens?
Have the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah followed the rulings of the Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah of the past in Marienbad 1937?

http://www.jewishpress.com/indepth/opinions/we-will-never-apologize-for-defending-ourselves/2014/12/11/2/ Ron Prosor, who represents the gov't of Israel, the government whose rulership was called evil by UTJ MK's writes
... Israel is the land of our forefathers – Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It is the land where Moses led the Jewish people, where David built his palace, where Solomon built the Jewish Temple, and where Isaiah saw a vision of eternal peace.
For thousands of years Jews have lived continuously in the land of Israel. We endured through the rise and fall of the Assyrian, Babylonian, Greek, and Roman empires. And we endured thousands of years of persecution, expulsions, and crusades. The bond between the Jewish people and the Jewish land is unbreakable.
Nothing can change one simple truth – Israel is our home and Jerusalem is our eternal capital.
Now about Netanyahu. I often disagree with his politics and not standing up for Torah but would never call him or his gov't a rule of evil. misguided, weak perhaps but EVIL????
