I pray for true peace and the cessation of this hatred. I demand that the Left do the חשבון נפש Cheshbon Nefesh, Accounting of the Soul, to see the true source of hatred, how David Ben-Gurion could have had no compunctions about ordering Yitzchak Rabin to lead the attack against the Jews bringing weapons on the Altalena to free Jerusalem from the Arabs. Yes, Rabin attacked innocent Jews. That his memory is being used to incite against Jews is a tragedy, because nothing was learned from the earlier tragedies brought to you/us by the Israel Left.
