Sar Shel Eisav's Last Stand

The Sar Shel Eisav seems to be working overtime to prevent its own demise. It keeps hitting the thigh of Yaakov, wounding him, but not more than that. It knows that it soon will be destroyed, but is willing to take as many of Yaakov as it can along with it. הצילני נא מיד אחי מיד עשו.

To see what I'm talking about, see the following:

But the Sar Shel Eisav has some competition. The Sar Shel Yishmael also wants in on the action. We know that the nation (or perhaps the archangel) of Yishmael rejected the Torah because לא תגנוב is written therein. The nation whose motto is ידו בכל cannot possibly follow this Torah precept. And yet, possibly the biggest חילול השם involving גניבה in our lifetime has just taken place involving one of us. (The big נס is that the Blago coverage has overshadowed this news - at least in my area of the world).

May Hashem eradicate the S"M and Sar Shel Yishmael from among us speedily in our days.

Thanks for the link.
So, you're not surprised by the timing, in terms of Parshat Shavua?

Nothing is coincidence.

BTW, I don't want people to think that my post is an anti-Rabbi Riskin post. I think Rabbi Riskin is the ultimate American-Israeli pioneer and has had a lot of good ideas over the years. This, however, is not one of them.
