A snake in the grass makes a quiet hiss before it strikes, so don't let Hamas's apparent quiet allow us to be complacent. Hamas too is preparing full steam for escalation at the time they deem right.
It's time for the Israeli Government to call off the dogs against the Yeshiva world and pay attention to the real enemy. Current legislative proposals would make Israel the only country in the world to incarcerate an individual for learning Torah, Heaven forbid. Let the government and the defense establishment here in Israel focus on the real enemy - Iran.

Really, the political and military pictures are nothing but a smokescreen. Rebbe Nachman of Breslev predicted this struggle over 200 years ago. He said that we'd have a double struggle, from within and from without, trying to attack our emuna. The odds are way against us, but the good news is that we'll prevail. Torah, teshuva and emuna are the weapons in our spiritual arsenal that will ultimately overcome every enemy. Make sure you join the right side.
