I continue to try to remember that there is truth and reality, somewhere. But not here. Here in this world, we bless Haman HaRasha, the evil Haman who aligned all events to slaughter the Jews, who prepared for genocide.
Here in this world, US Funded Terrorist Group Fatah slaughters holy children in a holy place, but the UN does not condemn it nor the US de-fund it. Here in this world, "people" willing to sacrifice their own children (nay, eager to!) fire Iranian missiles from within schoolyards at our children, but the world condemns the return fire _because it's more accurate_ than the outgoing fire (massacre, massacre!!!)
There is a Midrash that says in the end of days, we will bring a sacrifice and they will bring a sacrifice, as in the days of Eliyahu (Elijah) HaNavi (the prophet). [In the days of Eliyahu, he challenged the priest of ba'alilalahaha to see who's sacrifice would be accepted, those who prayed to stone and idols, or the one who prayed to G-d.] Yet this time, their sacrifice will be accepted and OURS will be rejected. Facing the greatest test of our time, they will come to us and say, "See, our way is true and yours is false, now join us." Yet, those with true faith in Hashem will stand firm.
A great rav and tzaddik of Jerusalem spoke last week on this Midrash, saying it may not be as people expect (literal). Rather, we will sacrifice Jerusalem, and then we will see even that will not be accepted. Yet I think this week shows another even worse possibility. They sacrifice their children daily (moloch anyone?), and the world not only accepts it but applauds in and finances it! When, G-d forbid, our children are taken, their blood is not acceptable to the world.
This is the time of Blessed is Haman. Those who perform human sacrifice, torture, maim, defile, attack innocents, and are committed only to complete destruction and death, are accepted, lauded, funded, and cried over when not successful. Those who stand holy, follow paths of peace, kindness, charity, and loving kindness are condemned, insulted, spat upon, ignored, demeaned.
We must pray, do teshuva, put on sackcloth and ashes, gird our swords, and hope for Purim. For on Purim, perceptions reverse in an instant. Blessed is Haman and Cursed is Mordechai. For now.
