Gaza War Links 2 - The Good, The Funny, and The Scary

The Good

  • R' Lazer Brody gave a great shiur that you can see by clicking the links at his blog
  • Jpost talks about the spiritual morale-boosting of the soldiers. Quoting from a Torah pamphlet given to soldiers, the article states:
    According to the elder [Rav] Kook, in his book Orot, "When there is a great war in the world the power of Messiah is aroused…the wicked perish from the world and the world is invigorated and the voice of the turtledove is heard."
  • Updated:Nava has a list of quotes from contemporary Gedolim on the situation. Some very interesting ones!

The Funny
  • Joe the Plumber will report on Gaza - huh?
  • A7:
    Hamas Accidentally Telecast Pornography
    Reported: 07:55 AM - Jan/08/09
    (IsraelNN.com) A Hamas technician apparently got bored and viewed an erotic satellite channel, which accidentally was aired on the terrorist organization's Al Aqsa television station, according to The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

    The erotic channel was from Poland, and the images were telecast for six minutes on Wednesday until it was taken off the air.

    Yishma'el is already guilty of Shefichut Damim. Now Gilui Arayot too? Their Zechuyot are dwindling by the minute.

Here is the original, in Hebrew, which is more expansive, such that certain statements may have different connotations:
