Letter to Rabbanim. Tough Choices. Impossible choices. Moral Dilemma's in fighting Rocket attacks of Hamas. What is Daas Torah?



See Yosef's comments to my letter below.

Yosef, amv"sh

It seems that the Rabbanim of the Galut have removed themselves from the conversation but it need not be that way.  I believe that this generation, hopefully  the generation of Moshiach is the Generation of  Tikkun Chait HaMiraglim.  Apparently the Yetzer Hara of the Miraglim is a Yetzer Hara that is extremely difficult to overcome if not impossible and even Kalev and Yehoshua needed much Siata Dishmaya, help from the One Above. 
The response of Kalev ben Yefuneh and Yehoshua bin Nun:
Bamidbar - Numbers - Chapter 14

ז. וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֶל כָּל עֲדַת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵאמֹר הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר עָבַרְנוּ בָהּ לָתוּר אֹתָהּ טוֹבָה הָאָרֶץ מְאֹד מְאֹד:
ח. אִם חָפֵץ בָּנוּ יְהֹוָה וְהֵבִיא אֹתָנוּ אֶל הָאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת וּנְתָנָהּ לָנוּ אֶרֶץ אֲשֶׁר הִוא זָבַת חָלָב וּדְבָשׁ:
ט. אַךְ בַּיהֹוָה אַל תִּמְרֹדוּ וְאַתֶּם אַל תִּירְאוּ אֶת עַם הָאָרֶץ כִּי לַחְמֵנוּ הֵם סָר צִלָּם מֵעֲלֵיהֶם וַיהֹוָה אִתָּנוּ אַל תִּירָאֻם:

7. They spoke to the entire congregation of the children of Israel, saying, "The land we passed through to scout is an exceedingly good land.
8. If the Lord desires us, He will bring us to this land and give it to us, a land flowing with milk and honey.
9. But you shall not rebel against the Lord, and you will not fear the people of that land for they are [as] our bread. Their protection is removed from them, and the Lord is with us; do not fear them."

Unfortunately in the desert, the people took the side of the Miraglim.  In our generation, our purpose is to correct their mistake.  We must counter discouraging reports of Israel and not cry but rather praise Hashem for His unceasing miracles to protect His people. He is an Almighty G-d much stronger than all our enemies combined!!!

Often kids at risk, OTD, off the Derech, want to go back on the Derech but can't seem to help themselves even when they try to the best of their ability.  They can eventually be brought back on Derech if we only connect to their precious Neshomah, daven and pray and be their guarantors by adding our own Mitzvoth and putting it into their account. Do we feel their emotional pain being disconnected to Hashem and the rest of His people?  We plead with HKBH to bring them back to the fold, and to help instill in  them fear and love of  Hashem and Hashem's commandments.. By doing so, we ourselves become closer to Hashem and have reason to feel confident that one day, should we ever need the favor returned, the very souls that we once helped save will then return this favor and save us back in kind.  

Each Neshoma is precious and we can't abandon even one because we are ONE and if we lose a Neshoma we lose a part of ourselves.  Al Achas Kama Vekama, how much more so with precious Neshomoth of our Rabbanim, our leaders,  the guiding light of hundreds of thousands of Neshomas. Shall we be callous to the sorry fate of the Miraglim???

Perhaps here too, the Tikkun can only come from the outside, from others davening and crying on their behalf and being Areivim, literally paying the deficit, as a guarantor does for someone who defaults on a loan. The people in the Desert were faulted for having cried after hearing the evil report of the Miraglim.  They should have replied as did Yehoshua and Kalev  that Hashem has promised the Good Land to us and we shall prevail because Hashem is protecting us as he promised.  

Rav Shteinman recently acknowledged, that we are witnessing miracles. "Rav Shteinman explains that there is not a single person among Am Yisrael that has not witnessed the miracles taking place around Israel during the military operation and we must be genuinely aware of HKBH’s intervention."

Surely that is a good first step!  

We hope and pray that we establish a Sanhedrin in Yerushalyim, BaMakom Sheyivchar Hashem, in Har Habayit,  together with those who look towards Hebron with the dawn of light each morning as they start their Avoda.  We daven  Hoshiva Shofteinu KavRishona....that the Sanhedrin will be accepted by Rov, the majority of Am Yisroel and represent Rabbanim and Torah Scholars in Israel and worldwide in Chutz Laaretz. 

Please G-d, Return us and We will return as One People United to the Good Land.   

Hashiveinu Hashem Elecha, Venashuva Chadesh Yameinu KeKedem.....

It has taken me a while to draw this unfortunate conclusion, but it is now clear to me that the Rabbanim of Galut are not able to answer these questions.  They have removed themselves from the conversation as did the ancient Rabbanim of Bavel who refused to join Ezra and Mechemya and are irrelevant. 

May the Rabbanim of Chutz Laaretz urge their flock to return to the Good Land and to stop worshiping idolatry in purity. 

Lichvod HaRabbanim, Shlita, amv"sh

What is DAAS TORAH??????? What is the opinion of Moetzet Gedolei Hatorah.  Should the gov't respond based on political backlash?  

Moral Dilemma's in fighting Rocket attacks of Hamas. before you judge think...what would you do...?? The Truth about the IDF (Israeli Defence Force)

What is Daas Torah to the Moral Dilemmas of Major Roy Levy of the  Golani Brigade and all IDF Commanders fighting the Hamas?  

The gov't of Israel is under tremendous international pressures driven by world condemnation driven often by lies and distortions.  

Please Address Inyanei DeYOma from purely an unadulterated Torah perspective.   Yasher Koach and may you be imbued with the Spirit of Calev ben Yefunah and Yehoshua bin Nun coming from Chevron Ir Avoth VeImahoth!

Devarim - Deuteronomy - Chapter 20

א. כִּי תֵצֵא לַמִּלְחָמָה עַל אֹיְבֶךָ וְרָאִיתָ סוּס וָרֶכֶב עַם רַב מִמְּךָ לֹא תִירָא מֵהֶם כִּי יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ עִמָּךְ הַמַּעַלְךָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם:
ב. וְהָיָה כְּקָרָבְכֶם אֶל הַמִּלְחָמָה וְנִגַּשׁ הַכֹּהֵן וְדִבֶּר אֶל הָעָם:
ג. וְאָמַר אֲלֵהֶם שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל אַתֶּם קְרֵבִים הַיּוֹם לַמִּלְחָמָה עַל אֹיְבֵיכֶם אַל יֵרַךְ לְבַבְכֶם אַל תִּירְאוּ וְאַל תַּחְפְּזוּ וְאַל תַּעַרְצוּ מִפְּנֵיהֶם:

ד. כִּי יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם הַהֹלֵךְ עִמָּכֶם לְהִלָּחֵם לָכֶם עִם אֹיְבֵיכֶם לְהוֹשִׁיעַ אֶתְכֶם:

1. When you go out to war against your enemies, and you see horse and chariot, a people more numerous than you, you shall not be afraid of them, for the Lord, your God is with you Who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
2. And it will be, when you approach the battle, that the kohen shall come near, and speak to the people.
3. And he shall say to them, "Hear, O Israel, today you are approaching the battle against your enemies. Let your hearts not be faint; you shall not be afraid, and you shall not be alarmed, and you shall not be terrified because of them.
4. For the Lord, your God, is the One Who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.
