  1. Firing on civilian aircraft is an act of war. Should they be stupid and down an international aircraft, meaning American, over Israel, then the response shouldn’t be a ground assault. It should be a carpet bombing that would make shock and awe look like firecrackers on July 4th.

      • Warring with Israel. They are threatening international flight, which is a global act of war. You have a guerrilla war going on between Hamas and Israel, foreign countries don’t have to be involved. Downing a civilian aircraft would require an international response to an act of war. Downing an American civilian aircraft would demand a disproportionate response against them. Providing our ignorant and gutless government knows how to read the articles of war and act on them.

  2. I don’t know how any Rosh Yisheeva in his right mind can tell bocherim or girls to come study in Israel at this time. If they do it is only because “kee hashoichad y’aver aanay chachomim v’yisalef divrey tzadikim.. If boys/girls for the U.S. or Europe etc. don’t come to their yisheevas then they would be very empty (and no tuition being paid hence the nigeeis) It is criminal to tell them “come it’s safe here in the Yisheeva, nothing will happen”. Which parent wants to send their kid to a war/terrorist zone? Not me. Let them learn in Lakewood or Mosey or Boro Park etc. There are great yisheevas here in the U.S..

      • Really?? When was the last time a group threatened to carry our terrorist acts in Far Rockaway and did, and continues to do so with impudence? It may have been small but it is certainly getting greater and greater with each passing day. Where in the world including Far Rockaway or Miami Beach do citizens need gas masks, bomb shelters, an Iron dome etc? What a life. BTW who says you have to live in FR or MB? Live in Montana it’s safe here in Billings.

    • Is this your own chidush or did santa tell you to tell us? Either way, thank hashem for such wisdom, I will now tell the Mir Rosh Yeshiva to jump in the lake and bring my son home.

    • i’m sending my son there next week, i’m proud to send him and i’m glad he’s going!! no one can deter a jew from coming back to his homeland – what you wrote showed complete ignorance on your part.

  3. Hamas reminds me of the school yard bullies, who attempt to intimidate vulnerable students with threats. I am not afraid of those momzarim. In fact, I just booked a flight to Eretz Yisrael, and will be landing at Ben Gurion Airport.

  4. santa, go back to the xtians you represent. Jews in the US and in Israel show courage, and don’t hide in the shtetl from threats. We said “Never Again”, well Again is now, so show some guts, don’t run and hide.

    • I happen to be Jewish, but you have to make a living so I took this job. you say Jews don’t hide, really? Maybe we should hide. We are tought “tuvay d’shoma v’ovish”(good is the one who hears and ignores) better to be quiet and not answer back. This applies to many things including running away to live another day. If all Jews left Israel don’t you believe that G-D would and will bring them back on the wings of Eagles? And BTW what does this statement of “never again” mean? Does it mean we won’t let our enemy’s take us without a fight or does it mean “G-D no matter what you have planed for us we will fight against YOU”?
