Yitzhak Dadon, Who Shot Terrorist, Also Writes Books!
Yitzhak Dadon, who shot a terrorist in the middle of the Merkaz Harav Yeshiva massacre and also stuck it to President Peres in a Channel 2 TV interview for giving guns to terrorists, is also a holy Jew who writes holy books. At the end of Shabbat I was informed that he has written a number of books in Hebrew, including a commentary on the Passover Hagada. He is a Moroccan Jew who writes in the popular style congenial to the Sefardi Israeli, using lots of stories and simple language to get across the difficult ideas of the thought of Rav Avraham Yitzhak Hacohen Kook zt"l, the first Chief Rabbi of Eretz Yisrael and the founder of Merkaz Harav Yeshiva. This is a tremendous accomplishment because Rav Kook's Hebrew prose is very difficult. If you read Hebrew, look for those books.
