Fencing: A Massage To Zaki And All

by

"How long will you waver between two opinions?" - Fencing is dangerous to the person doing it and to everybody else.

What is being written bellow applies to everybody.

It is the communities hope that you chose right over wrong. Do  not play a politician and make everything about right and left (this side or that). Must impotently use common sense and you will be all right.

In truth/Emes there is only one side.

Some facts that must be considered and detrimental if ignored. Sticking your head in the ground and ignoring certain facts of wrong doing will only prove detrimental to true peace.

What the people want, what the people voted for. The people voted against Mesira and those who carry them out. There is no need to hang out with these Mosrim. If they are flat-lining, then so be it, no need for you to give them CPR and bring them back to life. That would be contrary to what the people voted for.

If you hang out with these Mosrim your end will be as theirs was.

When the people saw this post on Collive (sister site to chabad.info) the following thoughts crossed our minds.

It seems Zaki has no back bone to stand up for what is right, he’s appearing to be a “want to get along kinda guy” and this worrisome.

Zaki seems to be a bit too inexperienced and soft, Lets hope  he isn’t getting cooped; He didn’t need Sperlin to hold his hand and take him to the politicians.

Zaki Tamir made a bad move by allowing Sperlin to take him around to the politicians. It made him look weak and inexperienced. There is also the fact that the community voted the Moser Chanina Sperlin out, this means we don’t want to see his face representing us in any way or form.

Zaki may be getting intimidated behind the scenes, these Mosrim play hardball and they will use every dirty trick in the book to wear Zaki down.

For these very reasons you must stay away from them and let them fade away. Focus on doing what needs to be done and ignore them. By trying to pander to them, you will only keep them leaching to you and you will never get anything done. They will suck your blood (life line) dry.

You need to know the history of this Machlokes and who the players are (whos who). You also need to make alliance with people that get things done and have money asap,  get their backing quietly and immediately and behind the scenes so when these Mosrim try to stop donors you will have your back covered.  One good example would be a guy like Dovid Fisher, who has done so much  for Crown Heights -past, present and future. There are also many private  good organizations that have been doing just fine without help from politicians, meet with them, see how they click.

The likes of Abba Paltial: Having good friends and even better enemies.

“They say if you want to know who a person is, just look at who his friends are, I say you can also look at who his enemies are” (Glenn Beck)

WIS have lived in Crown Heights all his life. The only time WIS has heard or seen the name Abba Paltial is on propaganda promoting more Machlokes and strife. In  fact the first time WIS has seen how Mr. Paltial looks is in the recent post on Colive (sister site to chabad.info). Mr. Paltial is a hate monger and a trouble rouser, not someone you want on your side.

The fact is, the bad guys will always hate those that do good. Well, to bad on them. Who cares what they think, they are and should be irrelevant. If the Mosrim hate you, then you must be doing something right. If someone like Mr. Paltial is talking slake about you, then your in good standing. Look at it this way and you”l strive. Don’t let these Mosrim distract you with stupidity/propaganda. Three years will past in no time, so don’t waste it.

Best of luck!

  1. Wavering NOT good! Says:

    “And the children struggled together within her… And she went to inquire of the G-d… And the G-d said to her: ‘Two nations are in your womb.’ ” (25:22-23)

    QUESTION: Rashi explains: When Rivkah passed a house of Torah learning, Yaakov struggled to emerge. When she passed a place of idol worship, Eisav struggled to come out. This perplexed her, and she went to inquire about it. A message was conveyed to her through Shem that she was carrying two children.
    Why did this information calm her?

    The Rebbe answers (Likutei Sichos Vol. 1, p183ff.):

    The prophet Eliyahu held a debate with the false prophets of Ba’al during which he challenged them: “How long will you waver between two opinions”. If Hashem is the G-d, follow Him! And if it is the Ba’al, follow him” (1 Kings, 18:21). One may wonder how Eliyahu was able to utter such an option.

    The Rebbe explains the difference between outright idolatry and idolatry which is fence-sitting. Outright idolatry means a person really believes he benefits from his idol. A fence-sitter is in doubt – either he’s unsure as to what to believe in, or he believes in Hashem plus something else.

    The Rebbe continues and says, that wavering between two opinions is in many ways WORSE than outright idolatry. GENERALLY, outright idolatry is worse of course. But in terms of TESHUVA, the fence-sitter is worse because it’s harder for him to do Teshuva fully.

    Why?

    1) Because someone who once believed in idolatry, who realizes he was wrong, can fully do Teshuva. The one who wavers and believes in Hashem plus something else or doubts, doesn’t do a full Teshuva because he claims he always believed in G-d.
    I.e. He is uncertain whether he sinned in the first place.

    2) The one who fully believes in idolatry can be a spiritual individual, just a misguided spiritual individual.

    But the one who wavers shows that not only is he not interested in the true G-d, but he is spiritually insensitive. Although he knows Hashem is G-d, he is still willing to give idols some credit, thinking he’ll benefit in some way. Even when he realizes the truth, he does Teshuva only because of personal gain.

    In other words: He is willing to compromise some of his religious beliefs for the sake of convenience or social pressure (his spirituality is corrupted by materialism).

    3) The one who wavers leads others astray because it is not clear that he is a heretic (for he knows how to quote a Pussuk in Chumish, a word from a Mammer or Sicho etc.. he speaks the language). The idol-worshiper, however, is an outright heretic and is thus an outcast that does not effect the Community. I.e. nobody gets confused by him.

    At the outset, Rivkah thought she was carrying one child who was confused, unable to distinguish between right and wrong, and thus, G-d forbid, capable of running in a different direction each day. Informed that she would give birth to two children, she was relieved, because she could now hope to convince the other child to emulate his righteous brother.

  2. Rambam Says:

    Halacha 1

    1. It is natural for a man’s character and actions to be influenced by his friends and associates and for him to follow the local norms of behavior. Therefore, he should associate with the righteous and be constantly in the company of the wise, so as to learn from their deeds. Conversely, he should keep away from the wicked who walk in darkness, so as not to learn from their deeds.

    This is [implied by] Solomon’s statement [Proverbs 13:20]: “He who walks with the wise will become wise, while one who associates with fools will suffer.” Similarly, [Psalms 1:1] states: “Happy is the man who has not followed the advice of the wicked.”

    A person who lives in a place where the norms of behavior are evil and the inhabitants do not follow the straight path should move to a place where the people are righteous and follow the ways of the good.

    If all the places with which he is familiar and of which he hears reports follow improper paths, as in our times, or if he is unable to move to a place where the patterns of behavior are proper, because of [the presence of] bands of raiding troops, or for health reasons, he should remain alone in seclusion as [Eichah 3:28] states: “Let him sit alone and be silent.”

    If they are wicked and sinful and do not allow him to reside there unless he mingle with them and follow their evil behavior, he should go out to caves, thickets, and deserts [rather than] follow the paths of sinners as [Jeremiah 9:1] states: “Who will give me a lodging place for wayfarers, in the desert.”

  3. CHER Says:

    If Zaki focuses on doing only good things and disregards these idiots he will be in good standing and accomplish a lot.

    Zaki has to remember he is working for those that voted for him, not for those who voted and now will work against him. There is nothing on this planet that he can do to do good by them, the mosrim want only destruction.

  4. REAGAN Says:

    Peace Through Strength.

    Since the dawn of the atomic age, we’ve sought to reduce the risk of war by maintaining a strong deterrent and by seeking genuine arms control. Deterrence means simply this: Making sure any adversary who thinks about attacking the United States or our allies or our vital interests concludes that the risks to him outweigh any potential gains. Once he understands that, he won’t attack. We maintain the peace through our strength. Weakness only invites aggression. This strategy of deterrence has not changed. It still works. (REAGAN 1983)
