Please, Hashem--watch over our חיילים--they are Your children too. This morning I went to pick up a breakfast in Boro Park on my way to work and was horrified to hear "one of ours" say something about "Tziyoinim". Why? Even if you don't agree with the politics, they still are אחינו בני ישראל--

Some have chided me that I always bring in the holocaust or the chorbin of European Jews. Americans "frummis" can learn a lot. In the gas chambers of Treblinka perished , torah person, hashomer hazair persons, Bundisten, Agudisten and small children and the hated yekkes. We scream about the German rotzchim but have not learned anything and we have the same chayes as before WWII. The Neturei Karta on their website wish Ahdaminjad bracha v'haztlocha. The sophisticated rockets which fell on Tel-Aviv are of Iranian origin. Obama is a sone yisroel and those hating the tzionym have ahavas yisroel. Somebody is crazy. Funny it was tzionym pilots which bombed the Iraqui Atomic installation and not the NK

I am all for achdus, but in light of the conversation I must remark that Yosef Partuk was not Haredi but was religious. And we all know that Hashem is most concerned that we are shomer mitzvahs and not what kind of hat we wear.

May his family be comforted and may this be the last Jew that has to die in the name of their terrorism.
