Story: Rabbi Miller

Torah Thought
In a powerful commentary aired on Face the Nation, veteran TV journalist, Bob Schieffer hits the nail on the head with respect to the conflict in Gaza.  He says that we are in "a world gone mad" where a terrorist group [Hamas] has "embarked on a strategy to get its own children killed in order to build sympathy for its cause."  He darkly surmises that this strategy just might be working and concludes with a quote from the late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, "We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children.  We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children."  What Schieffer leaves out is the rest of the quote:  "We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us."  May the One who makes peace in the highest heavens bring peace to us, to Israel, and to all the world.  Amen.
