Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

Rabbi Elias was distressed that the Jewish Link accepted an ad from a pistol range that trains people how to use guns and lets them use rented guns at the facility (“Gun Ads Don’t Belong Here,” October 4, 2018). Kudos to the Jewish Link for accepting such an ad. Rabbi Elias’ letter is very much in line with PC thinking. However, that is not necessarily Jewish thinking nor should it ever be. In a recent article by Rabbi Shmuly Boteach he noted that the tens of thousands of Jews imprisoned in concentration camps were guarded 24 hours a day by armed guards. Furthermore, those Jews were collected by Germans and their allies confronting Jews who did not believe in having or using guns. For decades the Jewish leadership – both political/secular and religious refused to accept the pleas of young pro-Zionist Jews to arm themselves and be ready to fight. Instead, the Jews (with some exceptions and resistance) were taken, imprisoned, tortured and cremated. Imagine if the Jewish leadership had listened to men like Mordechai Anielwicz and his second in command Yitzchak Zuckerman. How many millions of Jews might have been saved and how many more Nazi soldiers killed in the process?

What might it look like in the Middle East if Jews,instead of building secret places to manufacture guns and bullets decided to shun guns and weapons as recommended by Rabbi Elias? There would not be a modern State of Israel today. Of that you can be sure.

Every Jew owes it to himself, his family and his Jewish people to stand ready to fight and defend himself and all of us and doing that means being prepared and ready.

Historically, no nation has ever welcomed the Jews in perpetuity. We have gone through numerous expulsions all around the world throughout history. Zachor al Tischach. Remember, do not forget!! Too many of us have already forgotten!

Too many Jews are sleeping at the switch and need to wake up.
