This post isn’t going to provide very many updates on the current Arab-instigated war on Israel.
There are plenty of places to find those.
This post is just for my own personal reflections.
Today begins the period in the Jewish calendar known as the Three Weeks, or Bein Ha-Metzorim, (”Between the Straits”).
It’s a mournful period, beginning with the fast of the Seventeenth of Tammuz, and ending with the fast of the Ninth of Av.
During this period, Jewish tradition records a number of tragic occurences, including the breaking of the original tablets on which the Torah was written, the incident of the Golden Calf, the condemnation to wander in the desert for forty years, the destruction of Jerusalem and both Temples, numerous pograms.
The current flare-up of violence against Israel just adds to it.
I think most Jews are doubly mournful at this point, unless they’re just some sort of self-loathing idiot who thinks this is deserved.
And the international community just keeps piling on.
When will these people get it?
Probably never.
To hell with them anyway.
