The Lessons from Our Torah…. Not From the Koran

13 0 1

I am not shouting any hallelujahs for a “temporary ceasefire” between the Muslims in Gaza and the Jews in Israel. We have seen ceasefires before and all have failed. Ma nishtana? Why is this ceasefire different from all other ceasefires? Unbeliever that I am, I am beginning to count the hours, not days, until another siren is heard blaring along our border in the south.

And the winner of this recent eleven day mini-war is Joe Biden, the Democratic American president, who laid his cards on the table to Netanyahu, encouraged by Democratic members of Congress like the Jew Sanders and the Muslim Tlaib.

I have now taken bets with my neighbors. They say that the ceasefire will hold for at least one week. I say that it may hold for forty-eight hours. (How much do I have to pay if I lose the bet?)

The recent eleven days of death and destruction have a basis in our Torah’s account of the battle between two brothers, Jacob and Esau, the sons of our patriarch Isaac and grandsons of Abraham, founding father of the Jewish and Islamic faiths.
