November 6th is a critical day for Jews and for our country. On November 6th, we will choose a human being to lead our country. We will also decide the security of Israel. We will decide if the issues contrary to Torah values should be allowed or banned.
The choice is clear who to vote for.
The president continues to ignore Iran and does nothing about the nuclear facilities they have. The Torah tells us that if someone is going to kill you, then you should kill him first. Imagine if Adolf Hitler yemach shemom was murdered before 1935. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is another Hitler. As the prime mionister of Israel said, “Given this record of Iranian aggression without nuclear weapons, just imagine Iranian aggression with nuclear weapons.”
How can a religious Jew vote for President Obama and Joe Biden, despite the fact that both men are opposed to some of the Torah’s most basic moral values?
The calls from the president to Israel that put our brethren at risk are outrageous and must stop. The president has spoken negatively about the prime minister of Israel with other world leaders. Imagine what will happen after the elections if he wins. Going back to the 1967 borders would leave certain areas of Israel with a 10-mile space, surrounded by hostile countries. That’s suicide. The chillul Hashem if they win again will be enormous. And we know that it is very difficult to earn teshuvah for chillul Hashem.
Rav Avigdor Miller zt”l preached that a Jewish vote must remain loyal to the candidate whose values are more in line with basic fundamentals of morality. This year, the choice is clear. The president continues to ignore our brothers in suffering, notably Jonathan Pollard, who was not permitted to go to his father’s funeral and is himself very sick; Jacob Ostreicher, who is currently imprisoned in Bolivia; and Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin, who has been handed a 27 year sentence. Maybe Romney will look over these cases and they will receive some help, President Obama definitely won’t help them.
There are those who might say that Rav Avigdor Miller was the minority opinion and make note that Rav Moshe Feinstein and other gedolim voted Democratic because they saw the Democratic Party as more sympathetic to schools and other institutions. The talmidim of Rav Moshe say that they firmly believe Rav Moshe would not permit any Jew to vote for the Democratic Party of today. After all, the Democratic Party in the previous generation was not radical like it is today. Today, the Democratic Party fights for the promotion of the immoral behavior itself.
Klal Yisroel must unite as one, like one man with one heart, and vote for the right person not who we feel is right, but the one who fits to the Torah the most.
If Obama gets reelected, then we are allowing same gender marriages, which is completely contrary to Torah values. Get involved in the election. Donate money. Tell your friends and neighbor what the right thing to do is. This is crucial. This election will have ramifications that will be felt for generations to come.
November 6th will not only be a historic election for America, but also for the Orthodox Jews of America. So when you’re standing in the polling booth, don’t vote your opinion. Vote for who Hashem wants.
A Proud Jew
