Letters to My Son in Gaza: Jihad Must Be Destroyed!

1396569-5

Dear Son,

Do not be confused. Know who the enemy is. With all the meaningless talk of peace agreements and cease fires, the satanic enemy continues to fire rockets of destruction and blow up buses filled with innocent civilians. In the same breath, they demand that Israel end the assassination of its leaders, as a condition for peace. Woe, if we should ever agree to this, for this is the holy purpose that Tzahal was created, and for which you are fighting, to extinguish this cancerous evil from the world.

Lest you think your father is an angry extremist, read the words of Rabbi Kook, the master of tolerance and a renowned lover of all mankind.

In his prayer book, “Olat Riyah,” Rabbi Kook writes (my comments are in brackets):

“When the dark spirit, the prolific root of malice, impurity and evil, enters into the heart of the masses,” [expressing itself in a national culture of evil like the Jihad of Islam,] “it perpetrates horrible deeds in order to stop the emergence of the Divine holy light and the nobility of mankind’s pure soul”[which is revealed in the Nation of Israel] “wherein lies the eternal blessing and true foundation of Tikun HaOlam, the world’s perfection.

“As long as masses of spiritually depraved people [like Hamas and its brothers in arms] unite together as a nation with a culture built upon a foundation of wickedness and filth, they will constitute an iron wall to stop the lofty light from spreading, and thereby imprison the world in darkness. And in response to that, the hand of God, Creator of the Lights, is stretched out to smite those many peoples. Even though not all evildoers will be annihilated and consumed, and many will continue their lives even after the nations, as a united force, have been smitten, that blow will already have weakened that thick barrier of sheer and utter evil that was founded upon their strong alliance.”

The evil doers are so numerous, we cannot kill them all. We realize this in our war against evil. But this isn’t true for the leaders whom we are obligated to destroy.

Rabbi Kook continues:

“This dispensation is not so regarding the leaders, those mighty individuals, who harbor the power of wickedness within them, pillars of impurity, fountains of darkness, spreaders of insolence, and defenders of injustice. These monsters, with their egotistical, arrogant personalities, can turn world history backwards, darkening the luster that had begun to shine forth in the dark abode of mankind’s beginnings, by mounting an attack by a coalition of peoples, who have embraced evil in their general culture, in all of its impurity”  [as, for example, the leaders of the league of Arab nations and terrorist organizations united against Israel.]

“For them, there is no rectification but to kill them, to blot out their names, to eradicate them from the world. Such retributions are among the wonders of the Lord of the Universe, who causes the lights of holiness to shine forth, and who shall cause supreme justice to ultimately appear in His world, despite all those forces of darkness which delay its radiant appearance.”

And Rabbi Kook concludes:

“When God gave Eretz Yisrael to Israel as an inheritance, He performed miracles, overwhelming all of the surrounding nations’ shows of valor… This is an eternal lesson for us that God’s counsel and His holy word will endure forever, and all the savage and unbridled heroism in the name of evil, [the missile launching shahidists and martyrs who blow up Israeli buses], all the colossal shows of physical strength, all the secret councils of many nations and kingdoms which join together against the People of God, just as it occurred then, will be of no avail.”

Be strong, my son. Go forth with the armies of Israel and wipe out this evil. For the sake of the world.

Abba

    Tzvi, is the book "Olat Riyah" in English and where can one buy it?

    BTW, great blog as usual. Copied, pasted, saved and sent.

  3. WELCOME TO GLOBAL WAR….

  4. How did you know that it was not an Israelis agent who did it?

  5. Tzvi, just a small remark:
    Pay attn that rabbi Kook does not say who is on the side of darkness and who is on the side of light. It's your comment.
    Try to analyze the internal reason of this conflict. and take into account that Ishmael (muslims) is never considered by our tradition as Amalek (i.e. absolute evil). Ishmael saves the Land of Israel from other peoples.
    Just to be clear – I live in Israel and support Israel.

  6. Chaim Sidman says:

    Actually, Rav Chaim Solovechick says we do not know who is Amalek today since his seed spread to all the nations of the world. Therefore, he say any Goy who wants to do harm to Jews can be considered Amalek. In addition, we can tell who is Amalek today by specific character traits. When we left Mitzriam we were likened to a boiling bath. All the nations were afraid to jump in, because they would get burnt, but Amalek said he will jump inorder to cool down the bath, then the other nations would not be afraid to attack since the bath was already cooled by Amalek. In other words, the character attributes of the nations is that there fear overcomes there hate for Jews they would not be willing to hurt themselves in order to hurt us, however Amaleks hate for the Jews overcomes his fear. BTW I also live in Israel too.
