Dear Prime Minister Netanyahu, Knesset Members, Rabbanim and Activist List, amv"sh
Our Red line must be consistent with Torah.
You, Netanyahu had a red line. Nuclear Iran. It was presented graphically and impressively in front of the UN.
Obama together with the P5+1 crossed your red line in Geneva this past week, betraying Israel.
In response, Israel and Jews throughout the world have been Baruch Hashem standing together as One, albeit scared, standing alone, shouting a message of truth and warning to the world that this deal is reminiscent of Neville Chamberlain and the 1930s!
The message of Chanukah is to bring forth light in the darkness.
We are now within a very auspicious time "Sheasah Nissim Laavoseinu, Bayamim Hahem Bizman Hazeh". Who [G-d] makes miracles in those days and in our times.
Let us not allow the moment to pass and to sour.
While Obama and the world recently crossed Netanyahus red line, let us admit to ourselves that Torah's red line has been repeatedly crossed with Israel being a willing or not so willing partner. Oslo etc.
My daughter brought home a book called "There's a Boy in the Girls Bathroom" by Louis Sacher. Don't worry it's appropriate. It's a story of a boy, a basically good kid who is different. The caption reads "he may be the weirdest kid in school, but he's not completely hopeless" This kid has helped nurture an image of himself of being a monster. His kind therapist,Carla tells him. "Sometimes people think someone's a monster. But that's only because they can't see the 'good that's there inside him. And then a terrible thing happens." "They kill him?" "No, even worse. They call him a monster, and other people start calling him a monster, and then after a while he starts believing it himself. He thinks he's a monster too. So he acts like one. But he still isn't a monster. He still has lots of good, buried deep inside him."
- ... "Well, how does a monster stop being a monster?" He asked. "I mean, if everyone sees only a monster, and they keep treating him like a monster, how does he stop being a monster?" "It isn't easy," Carla said. "I think, first, he has to realize for himself that he isn't a monster. That, I think, is the first step. Until he knows he isn't a monster, how is anybody else supposed to know?"
