JPFO: Blessings and Shalom
Shalom means “peace” though it’s greater meaning is “complete.” There must always be Justice before Peace; though Justice can survive without Peace… Peace is impossible without Justice.
Our friend Libertarian Advocate brings us Rabbi Dovid Bendory’s message on the moral underpinnings of “gun control.” Notes LA:
As a Gentile, I have long been entirely mystified by the propensity of so many American Jews to be anti-gun ownership, especially in light of the Nazi perpetrated mass murder and ethnic cleansing known as the Holocaust. It seems as if they have, in the space of 60 years – a lifetime really – completely forgotten their own terrible history. – LA
To which I would remind our Gentile friends that Jews were fewer than half of the Holocaust’s victims. Most victims were Gentile – six out of every ten! That part of your history must always be remembered, too.
To our friend LA, Baruch u’Shalom.
