    Learn some Gemorah Fishman. We are not allowed to back to Israel by force against the goyim. Haven’t you ever heard of the 3 Oaths,or is that something your rabbis conveniently forgot? It’s the tzionim who brought all the wrath of the goyim against us. Rach Moshiach!

  2. Kim Petree says:

    "So don’t give me the Hasidic song and dance that I’ve heard so many times, “We don’t need your Zionist army! The Torah will protect us, not your airplanes and tanks! Nonsense! It simply isn’t true. That isn’t Torah. That isn’t Judaism. Yes, the Torah protects us – when we study, and when we pray, and when we arm ourselves with rifles and tanks and go out to destroy the enemy!" AMEN!

  3. chavazlotkin says:

    So, what about the bochurs at Merkaz Harav, whose blood covered their gemaras? And this even with the IDF.

  4. Steve says:

    And Baruch Hashem there were 2 people with IDF training on the scene (of the Dati-Leumi background) that had guns, went in there, and killed the terrorists before they killed even more children.

  5. Steve says:

    The goyim voted for the State of Israel, not just in the UN, but also in the 1921 San Remo Agreement/League of Nations when they said the Land of Israel belongs to the Jews as a national homeland. So it was not in violation of the oath.

  6. Eric Mendelsohn says:

    Only for those who worship halakhah instead of Hashem. For those who practice Judaism instead of the avodah Zara that is halakhalatry the article is irrelevant.
