  1. Although we naturally associate ourselves with pride with the State of Israel’s accomplishments, PR, etc. We need to bear in mind however that the the State of Israel treats Frum Yidden as 2nd class citizens in court, in gvmnt funding & everywhere else that matters. They trample on Torah principles, promote to’eiva, sank ships of refugees from the shoah, stole yeminite children & so much more, etc.

    So before feeling such pride, remember that although its named the State of Israel & it is our birthright, frum yidden have no reason to celebrate their tzedoko achievements in Haiti. It’s no Kiddush Hashem – its a move for personal gain, nothing that the Torah or Frum Yidden are going to reap anything from in the future. If youre so excited about their Kiddush Hashem, where are the Kiddush Hashem acts within Israel’s own borders – other then protecting their teritory, promoting yet again for their own agendas.

    Wake up guys & keep the pride swelling in control & in Torah prepective
