Rabbi Bess: Where Is the Outcry About the Kevorim and Rav Shmidal? December 7, 2012 11:44 am
If there is such a terrible matzav in Eretz Yisroel with the kevorim and the gedolei Yisroel are involved, shouldn’t you use Matzav as a platform for such an important issue?
Rav Dovid Soloveichik shlit’a asked if there can be some help from America. Rav Yitzchok Tuvia Weiss shlit”a is working so hard on it and the frum news stations are totally ignoring the matter. The only hope that anything can be done is only if they hear from America. Should they turn to CNN and the New York Times to be mefarsem the matter or at least do it in a frum forum to minimize the chillul Hashem?
Can you imagine what would happen if they started digging up by an Arab cemetery? What would be going on in the news all over the world?
And to add to the bizayon haTorah is that they arrested Rav Dovid Shmidal shlit”a, one of the ziknei hador who was close to the Brisker Rov zt”l, and treated him like a common criminal.
