In reading the Aug. 7 edition of The Jewish Week, clarification has finally been given to what is going on Israel. It is not Iran that will destroy Israel but the intolerance of certain factions that are undermining the fabric of Israel (“Twin Cases Of Extremism Spark Calls For Crackdown” and Joseph Rackman’s Opinion piece, “The Greatest Threat To Israel Is Not Iran”).
A prime minister who sold his country to the charedi community. Extremists who are not arrested for violent acts not only against Arabs but Jews as well. Americans dictating where to impose settlements — even though none of them will ever live there. These are the reasons the Beit Hamikdash [Holy Temple] was destroyed — not because of Obama and Iran, but because of a corrupt Kohen Gadol (High Priest), idolatry and immorality that was prevalent in that era. Not so much different then today.
