Speak softly to be heard over the din (english word, not hebrew word). G-d speaks “in a soft still voice”. Shouting, loud rhetoric…it’s all chevel chevailim, vanity and nothingness! Ego! When your ego fills the room,, there is no room for anyone else…not even (or especially not) G-d.
We do not expend the press to speak softly – such miracles do not exist in this world! Nor do we expect modesty, that would be the antithesis of what they do. But we do take issue with the Israeli news when they have the chutzpah to #1 Make their Opinion the headline, #2 Presume to the tell the world what to do, #3 Tell the Nation of Israel what to do, when their advice would at the least put our son’s lives at risk (via the IDF) or put the country itself at existential risk – risking all our lives,
Here they recommend that Israel start to take direct action against Syria, putting Israel in active war with Syria, ISIS, Iran, Hezbollah, and Russia. The situation in Syria is horrific, with far too many civilians caught in the crossfire. But there is no way Israel can tiptoe through that minefield without getting badly bloodied…at best.
Contain your bleeding heart and your big mouth before it gets our children killed. If YOU, Mr. Op Ed Writer, want to take action, YOU are welcome to fly to Kurdistan and see if they can smuggle you the YKP where YOU can join the fight against Syria and ISIS and Iran while getting bombed by Russia. Or if you’re not a person of such direct action, YOU can send them a check (search for #TwitterKurds on Twitter for info from the Kurdish rebels in northern Syria).
But leave the rest of Israel out of it. It will be a miracle if Israel doesn’t get drawn in, and it might be World War III and the End Times prophecies if it does.
