My good friend Rabbi Lazer Brody wrote last week, on another topic:
I'd laugh too at the silly senseless self-righteous oligarchs, but it's my country! Fortunately, Hashem is compassionate and Hashem runs the world.
The high tide always precedes the low tide. Those who willfully rebel against Hashem first rise to great heights, so their imminent crash landing will make all the bigger boom. That's exactly what will happen to the black-robed anti-Torah mafia. Sit back and let Hashem run the show.
Everybody knows that our abysmal failure in the recent Lebanon war is the responsibility of the Three Stooges:
(Actually not these heroes, but...)
Olmert, Peretz and Halutz. And everybody knows that they’ve been doing their darndest to avoid a full-blown State Investigation into the war. But now, that may be coming to an end.
Bill for State Inquiry Passes First Step – The Knesset Tuesday night passed the first reading a bill calling for the establishment of an independent state inquiry into the management of the war against Hizbullah terrorists this summer.
And not only that, but there is also a Demand for State Inquiry into ´Disengagement´
The head of the Headquarters for saving the People and the Land of Israel has asked Attorney General Menachem Mazuz to set up an independent state inquiry to probe the government's reasoning for passing the Disengagement Plan last summer. The law resulted in the destruction of Jewish communities, turning over the land to the Palestinian Authority (PA), the expulsion of the Jewish residents and the withdrawal of the IDF from the border with Egypt.
Could this be the beginning of the end of the Olmert oligarchy? As Reb Lazer says, let’s “sit back and let Hashem run the show.”
UPDATE, WEDNESDAY NIGHT:
As mentioned above, we are now in accord with the Israeli public:
Poll: Halutz, Peretz and Olmert Must Go
A poll released Tuesday night showed that the Israeli public is thoroughly dissatisfied with the current government leadership. The majority of respondents think the IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz and Defense Minister Amir Peretz should resign their posts, according to a Geocartography poll.
