Ruminations on Life, Orthodoxy, Israel and Academia
I haven't heard the shiur yet, but I stopped flying the flag after Gush Katif was destroyed in 2005. NOT, hass v'shalom, because I have turned against Zionism, nor because I now view the flag as no more than a smartut-rag as some religious anti-Zionists put it, but, because the flag has been desecrated. It was flown over the camps of the soldiers who carried out the criminal atrocity of destroying Gush Katif and it was sown onto their uniforms. Unless my listening to the shiur changes my mind, I will again fly the flag when it becomes inconceivable that any government would carry out something like Gush Katif again. Today, the largest party in the Knesset, Kadima, is committed to dividing (and thus destroying) Jerusalem, so we are far, far away from reaching my condition. I hope it will come sooner than I think.
