  1. Death is always tragic.

    Check throughout Chumash, Navi and Kesuvim — and the deaths of the 24,000 talmidim of Rabbi Akiva are tragic too. At least these soldiers died al Kiddush hashem.

  2. #4, why is it a kiddush Hashem to have a Government formed that are anti everything Hashem stands for? Actually, the whole inception of Zionism and the State Of Israel was a huge Chilul Hashem

  3. #6 what are you talking about the Zionist government in Israel is the beginning of the geulah. I guess you’ll be left out of it.

  4. #7, in your mind, the Chofetz Chaim, the Brisker Rov, Rav Elchonan Wasserman, the Chazon Ish, the Satmar Rav all had it wrong and Ben Gurion and Theodor Herzl YMS had it right., Well I prefer to be left out of your “geulah” with those gedolei Yisroel and merit the true Geulah with those Gedolim.

  5. #8 you have just admitted you want to be left out of the geulah of Kol am Yisrael. How can you say something like that.

  6. To Git and Ben Torah:

    To Ben Torah: The plaza was not emptied of Tefilah unless you dont consider Kadish, Tehillim, Kel Male, Yizkor and Hespedim appropriate for the Kotel or Beit Knesset. Furthermore I guess you have never seen a shul used for Azkarot well wake up it happens all the time.

    To Gt: You forget HaRav Tzvi Yehuda Kook ztl, HaRav Mordechai Eliyahu ztl, Rav Yasher Ber Solivetchieck ztl, HaRav Ovadya Yosef ztl HaRav Ben Tzion Uziel ztl,HaRav Ahron Lichtenstien and the list goes on and on they all said Hallel either with or without a bracha.

  7. As the Brisker Rav and others pointed out, the State of Israel has pushed away the geulah. It certainly is not “the beginning of the geulah”.

    He noted that had the Jews at that eis ratzon davened for the geulah, they would have been answered and Mashiach would have come. Unfortunately, the satan snatched that opportunity from them and they instead prayed for the State, which they got instead.

    And decades and tens of thousands of dead Jews later, the Zionists of all religious stripes continue to worship their idolatry of Zionism…
