Critics of the government are saying that the new decision was intended to improve Netanyahu's coalition negotiations with the Haredi parties.
For the most part, we Jews have always accepted the obligation to ward off disaster as best we can. For the most part, we generally understand that all humans have free will. Saadia Gaon included freedom of will among the most central teachings of Judaism, and Maimonides affirmed that all human beings must stand alone in the world “to know what is good and what is evil, with none to prevent him from either doing good or evil.”
Noam Shalit has officially thrown his hat into the political arena and is running for a spot in the Labor party, with the goal of removing the Likud from power.

Ignore for the moment the rank racism, the poor spelling, the absence of any basis for the wild and irresponsible allegations...

And that is what causes the kind of Chilul HaShem that is happening here. And when the criminal is someone who is otherwise a good person, the Chilul HaShem is even greater.
The Egyptian army has slowed down its all-out attack on terrorist enclaves in the Sinai, several weeks after its initial, aggressive spurt on August 5. The terrorist culprits who murdered 15 Egyptian Border Guards remain at large, and the lack of progress appears rooted in political uncertainty back in Cairo.
