There are no words to express our pain, our sorrow, our anger. Our boys, the boys who united the Jewish People, have been brutally murdered. May Hashem avenge their blood.
Tonight is Gimmel Tammuz, the date of the hishtalkus of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. The Rebbe once said “We can only face evil with faith.” Even now? Especially now!
Should we be angry, of course we should be. But we must find the path of channeling our anger, our sorrow, our pain into our connection with our Father in Heaven. If there is one lesson we learned from the Rebbe, it’s that everything can be turned into a drive for good.
Good does not mean turning the other cheek nor trying to make peace with murderous barbarians. It does mean remembering these Jewish boys, building in their name, doing good in their help. Helping others, giving charity, doing a mitzvah.
Already we hear the cries to act with restraint, but we ask where was the restraint of the murderers? We hear cries to not cause collective punishment, but were the boys not a collective punished for the perceived honor of the murderers? When we are kind to the cruel we are cruel to the kind.
ENOUGH! We do not call for revenge, revenge is for the Hand of Hashem. BUT WE DO SCREAM OUT FOR WISDOM IN DEALING WITH BARBARIANS, MURDERERS, THOSE WHO DO NOT VALUE LIFE.
Ribono Shel Olam, we call out – is it not enough? Bring us your righteous Moshiach now and end this unbelievable evil.
There are no words, but some have spilled forth with our tears. May their families be comforted among the mourners of Tziyon and Yerushalayim. And may Hashem avenge their blood.
[For those who did not hear – the 3 boys kidnapped over 2 weeks ago in Israel by “Palestinians” from Hebron were found this afternoon murdered.]
