Rockets and Fear

Rav Binyamin Batzri, the rabbi of the Hareidi community of Beer Sheva, said recently that the curse of וּפָחַדְתָּ לַיְלָה וְיוֹמָם - and thou shalt fear night and day - has been fulfilled in Beer Sheva through all the rocket attacks.

Elder of Ziyon quotes the Islamic Jihad website with the ironic name of Saraya.ps, which in turn quotes a magazine, which in EoZ's words is:
saying that hundreds of "Zionists" within rocket range are seeking psychological help due to the Grads and Qassams, including many parents seeking to help their children. The tone of the article is anything but concerned - it is celebratory.
These barbarians love terror so much that they celebrate when Jews are afraid.

The Pesikta Rabbati says that in the year that the Mashiah comes, we will be in a panic until Hashem tells us not to fear for the time of the Geula has arrived.

Then we'll see who will be crying for Mommy.

After many years of sleep deprivation because of horn honking all hours of the early-mid-late night and almost neitz of the morning, and then having to go to work in Manhattan, a little shell-shocked, I can somewhat feel their stress level.

Yes, there is a big difference betw rockets and horn-honking but stress is stress. And these were my Jews with such selfishness and a lack of consideration for any one living in the area that made it more difficult.

Until it happens to you, you wont feel their pain.

Don't forget that וּפָחַדְתָּ לַיְלָה וְיוֹמָם has also been fulfilled throughout the Jewish world due to the efforts of a bunch of Jewish people as well, who are good as declaring the nigh-ness of the end.

Good Shabbos,
Josh

Yes, when done irresponsibly.

When done responsibly, it fulfills the dictum צפית לישועה.

Indeed.

Though it is possible to fulfill צפית לישועה without this.
