A thought on Katrina and all other disasters...
IMHO, this may not necessarily be "the WRATH OF HEAVENS", but the idea is not too far off. The actions of the Jewish people have a direct effect on the proximity of the Shechinah to to world. It was out reshaut that brought galut in the first place. Because of our deeds the Beit HaMikdash was destroyed twice. Now, just look at the facts: within a couple of weeks since Jews were forced out of their homes, leaving a couple of Small corners of Eretz Yisrael virtually judenrein (save for the army posts, which are being dismantled), five airplanes have fallen in various places around the world. Our economy is threatened by ever-increasing prices in Oil. Unprecedented attacks in Iraq... terror returns to Israel (did it ever really stop?!), and now Katrina, just to complete the baker's dozen. The Shechinah is lifting up it's protection from the world.The world needs the Jews in Eretz Yisrael. In ALL of Eretz Yisrael.The Torah explicitly orders us to expell the gentiles, NOT THE JEWS, from Eretz Yisrael.The Torah tells us not to fear their numbers.Yet, because "there are too many Arabs in Gaza", Mr. Rosh HaMemshalah has punished the Jewish residents of Gush Katif and Northern Shomron (I know, it is a non-sequitur, what do you expect from someone who doesn't make sense in the first place?!) -- they're now homeless, and they land is slotted for being handed-over to those who insist in killing us and taking "the rest of Balestine" (sic!) from us.Now, you wonder...The eternal Wondering Jew...Wondering why those planes keep falling. Why is the US economy so bad. Why so many Americans suffering violent deaths at home and abroad...Will you just keep wondering?
