The Face of the Enemy


This morning, in Hallel, we said:

It is better to take refuge in the the Lord than to trust in man.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.
All nations compass me about; verily, in the name of the Lord I will cut them off.

They compass me about, yea, they compass me about; verily, in the name of the Lord I will cut them off.
They compass me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns; verily, in the name of the Lord I will cut them off.

Nothing further need be said.

ה' יקום דמם.

Walking home from Shul on Sat. evening in Abu Tor, an arab youth passed us on a motorcycle, yelling"ימותו כל היהודים".

We were reminded of others - many years ago - who also wanted:
להשמיד להרוג ולאבד את כל היהודים

Somehow, this Purim will have a different meaning for me...
