My own views based on Kikar links - Eli Yishai speaks the truth by saying that the Lebanon War consisted of Kohi Ve'otzem Yadi, but got his words twisted and got a lot of people mad, including Frum bloggers.  He now explained how Jewish survival is based on the Torah - nothing else.  Baruch Hashem Israel has such a minister who speaks the Emet.

The Torah Yaak? Where did God go in all of this. Is He not responsible for saving a remnant of us? The Tanach is quite clear. It's also clear He's not overly happy with us but will save a remnant anyways. Let's give credit where it's due, it's God, not making the Torah into an idol. That should ring a bell with you.

Shiloh,

Yes, I realize you reject major tenets of the Torah, so it may be difficult for you to realize that the Torah was our gift from G-d, which would imply that whenever we refer to the Torah, we refer to G-d Himself. We have a dictum to that effect from the Zohar:

ישראל ואורייתא וקודשא בריך הוא כולא חד

although I don't expect you to understand or consider my sources authoritative enough.

Of course the Torah was a gift from G-d, where is the dispute. All I said, is thank G-d for keeping us here.

Of course I understand Yaak, what's wrong with sourcing the Tanach?

Have a great night.
