STATEMENT FROM RABBI YITZCHAK GINSBURGH
(The following statement reflects the position of Rabbi Ginsburgh and not necessarily that of The Jewish Press)
The Gaza Strip will not be demilitarized unless Israel takes initiative by entering Gaza and taking full control. Historically, Gaza is a part of Israel.
“If you’ve begun a mitzvah, finish!” A government afraid to complete a justified military campaign must step down from leadership. The consensus of opinion of Jews in Israel is that the war against Islamic fundamentalism must be completed, on all fronts.
Our children sacrificed their lives for a lasting peace and security in Israel, not for a temporary, meaningless cease-fire.
Our might comes from our conviction and faith in the justification of our cause. Our faith comes from the Torah, from the God of Israel. Indeed, the God of Israel is the One God of all mankind, the Creator of the universe. May we cling to Him and live by His way, the Torah.
We are waiting (and praying) for a righteous and courageous leader, one who draws his strength from the Torah, the blueprint of creation.
