In contrast to this comes the true approach to Torah of, “Everything that the Lord said, we will do and listen” (Shemot, 24:7). We will do it whether it pleases us or not; whether we intellectually understand, or whether the matter is above our limited human logic and reasoning; whether we agree with the way things are, or whether we have criticism. When the Torah is seen in its true light, there isn’t any criticism of the way Hashem does things. In place of criticism comes Divine attachment, harmony, and complete Emunah.
So, to all my blogger colleagues in America: if you want to complain about things in Israel, at least come live here, and play your part in the building. Remember, if you are not a part of the solution, you’re a part of the problem.Tzvi Fishman
