Well, at least we have a security fence II

Continued from here.

Well, after spending $1,000,000,000 on a security fence, we get another attack with at least 9 dead and 66 wounded. So the modern day version of the Maginot line is a failure once again.

Now, before anyone jumps up and brilliantly declares: "but has not the security fence prevented dozens of attacks," let me respond that the sages z"l inofrmed us many years ago that "techilat nefila nissa" - "the beginning of the fall is the retreat". The fence, just like the expulsion plan represents nothing less than shameful retreat from enemies which justice demands we should defeat. Such a policy will never save lives in the long run but only motivates our enemies and puts more lives at risk.

On this Chag HaGeula, may Hashem send us leaders who will raise the banner of Klal Israel up high and no longer will our national honor be dragged through the mud!
