Across the dysfunctional continuum of the Jewish spectrum, we see impotence personified. Netanyahu has the spine of a jellyfish. But we've known this for a long time. His perspective epitomises the naked weakness of the Likud, which mirrors labor in basically every regard save a few economic principles. One thing is clear. None of the current politicians have a clue about how to save these boys from the accursed Arabs.
Nor can we expect to hear an iota of Torah truth from chief rabbis whose response to tragedy is a call for Shabbat to commence 10 minutes early. What one has to do with the other is beyond me. Funny what they choose to focus on. (More localised folk suggestions have intimated that the mitzvah of hafrashat challah might be efficacious as a magical means of saving these boys.) Naturally it would be too much to expect these state functionaries to state the Halacha outright and call for the Arabs to be thrown out. If they are incapable of stating the provocative Torah truths, then at least a call for collective t'shuvah (repentance), or an increased emphasis on ahavat yisroel (love of Jews) would at least make sense.
Nothing will change, without an ideological revolution that wipes away the current power bases and starts the game afresh with people who fear The Almighty. Only by following the laws of milchemet mitzvah (obligatory Halachic war) can we defeat the Amalekite Arabs. This is the obvious truth to anyone who understands Torah. Everything else is just plain rhetoric. And frankly, I don't want to hear it.
