Peace Upon the Land: 19 Kislev, 5743 • December 5, 1982

The Israeli government must set its priorities in Operation “Peace for Galilee.” From the outset, the military experts made it clear that casualties could be minimized on both sides of the conflict by a swift operation, which could be over in days. Even the President of the US did not pressure Israel to do otherwise. But some politicians became afraid of their own inner insecurities.
Lubavitcher Rebbe
Peace Upon the Land
19 Kislev, 5743 • December 5, 1982
Disc 11, Program 42

Event Date: 19 Kislev 5743 - December 05, 1982

The Israeli government must set its priorities in Operation “Peace for Galilee.”

From the outset, the military experts made it clear that casualties could be minimized on both sides of the conflict by a swift operation, which could be over in days. Even the President of the US did not pressure Israel to do otherwise. But some politicians became afraid of their own inner insecurities.

Out of this fear of appearing “too aggressive,” Jewish soldiers are being held back from completing their mission. As a result, there are many casualties and wounded, on both sides of the conflict, which could have easily been avoided. Instead of being concerned with which party will have more votes in the coming elections, first worry about the truly important matters of life and death, Jewish pride, and sanctifying G-d’s Name.
