Should frum Jews be concerned about ירושלים falling into the hands of goyim before the time of Moshiach, or is that something that shouldn’t concern us?
I personally say that we should worry. Because if the Arabs get into ירושלים, even part of it, they’re going to come in, sneak in, and they’re going to be robbers, muggers, murderers. We’re going to have all kinds of trouble from them, no question about it.
When I was a boy, I was a close to a rav in my neighborhood who came from Eretz Yisroel. And he said that there’s only one way to deal with Arabs. Hakodosh Boruch Hu should drop a bomb on them. That’s the only way to deal with the Arabs. Arabs are very low people. Low and wicked. Make no mistake about – they are wicked and low.
And therefore, we have to pray, “Please Hakodosh Boruch Hu, נקום נקמת בני ישראל!” For what they did to us so far, they deserve a tremendous נקמה.
Of course, the final נקמה will be when משיח comes. But in the meantime, we’d like to have a little nachas too. In the meantime, let’s see a מפלה, a great downfall, for some of these רשעים right now.
