Reader comment on item: Give Gaza to Egypt
in response to reader comment: Gaza is Jewish land

Dear Madam:

Dr. Pipes is NOT wrong. Many very Orthodox (not Naturei Karta but Satmar), say that no matter what, only when Hashem wants, Israel will totally given back to the Jews- so IF, for the time being, for example for the next 50 years, Gaza is annexed top Egypt, becoming their problem), it will never impeach G-d from delivering the land of Israel to the nation of Israel, PERIOD.

Aside from that:

You know Nat, b/c of commentaries like yours and attitudes alike, I backed off my Teshuvah, despite to the fact that I have two very close extremely orthodox religious Jews in my family, along with others, called by you" seculars".

I SPEAK MORE THAN ENOUGH Hebrew to read and understand the Tanakh and work in Israel in a regular job. Also, to go to the University.

I came to an understanding that many of the so called "secular" ones are far more decent, straight, far less hypocrite and with an open hart and care for the next human beings, than most of you barely ever dare to dream about.

Although we find the good and bad in all sides, orthodox ones have far more responsibility to be straight. Unfortunately, while all Jews are Jews for the matter of giving Tsedakah to keep others children in Yeshiva, and so many Israelis having to sustain them, b.c it is a "Mitzvah" (recalling that they will never be productive to society- Bakhur Yeshiva FOREVER- nor participate in the army), we today keep this lets say parasites and tomorrow our children will have to keep their children. Yet, as one Satmar said to me once:

You will never be Jewish, despite OF the fact that both ancestral are Jews, yet a contribution was always welcome.

And, if Hashem keeps his promise, where was HE in the Holocaust and when innocent Human beings are being mutilated and genocided by Arab Muslims not only in Israel but in Sudan?

I find Doctor Daniel Pipes (Blessed is he and may he live 480 years at least) much holier and in consonance with the goodness and morality that the Torah teaches us, endorsed by Baal Shem Tov, than many of you.
