A Torah committed Jew sheds no tears for the wicked. A G-d fearing person shows no rachmanut for our enemies, either in Gaza or elsewhere. Rabbi Landes, Purim is approaching. May I suggest that you read Parshat Zachor and internalize the eternal lesson of Amalek. Draw the logical conclusions. In Judaism we celebrate the destruction of the wicked. If this displeases you, find another religion. Evidently, your ideology has more in common with Gandhi’s perverse pacifism.
