    “Eisav’s Burning Hatred To Yaakov”

    Oh Mommy, Mommy, what can I say? I feel that everything is closing in on us. I feel like we’re in Russia, communist Russia. I feel that Europe, communist Russia, and communist China are swallowing up the world and conducting a great war against Hakodosh Boruch Hu. There is absolutely no doubt that the Reshaim of today who are trying to take over the world are the same Yivanim that once ruled the world or most of the world. Rome came after Greece, but was the clear continuation of the Greek approach to life. No doubt that all of those same villains of history are all here now. They are all the same Reshaim that wanted to eliminate both of our Batei Mikdosh, that wanted to eliminate the Jewish religion, and wanted to destroy our Kesher with Hakodosh Boruch Hu. Unfortunately, we also have the Misyavnim (Hellenists, those Jews who left Yiddishkeit) here with us today.

    Everyone has to go back to a simple life and to our connection to Hakodosh Boruch Hu. Why don’t people understand that the only thing that’s going to save us is the spiritual connection with Hashem?

    They lie to us everywhere. They steal our money from the banks. They lie to us about medications. They kill people in the hospitals. Everything is a lie! There is only one Truth, and that’s Hakodosh Boruch Hu and His Torah. That is our only shelter. That’s the only way to reach eternity.

    Good night Mommy I ‘m going to sleep.

  2. It is unlikely that these mere protests will be effective. More open civil disobedience, and perhaps more direct action (“monkey wrenching” things, including in the IDF) might get notices. More effecting would be threatening to ally with the opponents of the government (e.g. offering to support the Arab demand for a return to the pre-1914 status quo with a ban on conscription and legal autonomy for the hareidim).

    It is clear ,by now to all, that conscription was/is not motivated by a desire to improve the IDF’s ability to defend the country, (and in fact non-zionist soldiers will weaken the army).

    AN end to conscription and a switch to a professional/volunteer army (as has been done by most western countries) is a realistic demand and would be privately welcomed by many Israelis, (with economic incentives for those who do wish to serve).
