Der Yid, Thursday 21 Sivan, 5770
Maybe it's all a game. They don't really believe what they're writing no matter how they revered the Satmar Rov z"l. Maybe they write this kind of stuff only because they're never afraid that it'll hurt them. People that need to interact with other people from other kreizen don't broadcast such stuff for the world to see. (That would tell you some of the more radical unemployed Meshichisten do what they do.) They're financially independent and aren't afraid of repercussions. Boycotts rarely work. People want their shopping experience to be as hassle free as possible, and don't want to worry about what they can and can't buy. Most people don't read the newspaper and would never see it if not for Circus Tent. Not that I'm condoning boycotts here, but it was mentioned on the blog this week. They have a really hard time expressing love for other Jews, despite all the Tzedokoh and Bikur Cholim and Hachnosas Kalloh, which amazes me. And they're so proud of being "mekayem" משנאיך ה' אשנא, mamesh tzaddikim gemurim. What a guide in life that is... Whatever.
What gets me in this editorial is this phoney baloney line where they daven that the medinah collapse without any Yid being hurt, c"v. Not that I doubt that they don't wanna see Jewish casualties, c"v; what I do doubt is their sincerity. S'nisht kein davenen, s'gornisht. They're not davening to hashem to destroy anything, and if they do then they don't believe that G-d will actually destroy it. They too have too much invested in the Holy Land and they won't have Abbas or Hamas tell them what to do. Individual shnorrers like Moshe Hirsh's kids have nothing to lose and eberything to gain, but not an empire like Satmar. It's stam gehakt. It sounds good but it's like pi---n in di mikvah. s'kust nisht kan gelt and it takes no effort. I just wish they'd stop teaching this stuff to their kids. Too many thousands convince themselves they're good Jews and zealots by "believing" this.
