Prominent religious Zionist rabbis are calling on the public to say a special prayer “for the wholeness of the land,” on the backdrop of reports of progress made in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians and “the growing pressure on the prime minister to agree to additional withdrawals, Heaven forbid.”
Here’s the prayer
“Our father, our king, nullify the schemes of our destroyers,” Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu’s prayer says. “Please merciful God, with your many mercies, annul severe decrees and don’t give your land to disgrace, to be controlled by gentiles. Protect and save us from our enemies, and give us the valor and courage to build and plant your holy land, and may we live to inherit our land.”
In short- don’t let peace talks succeed. That’s wicked, even if it is couched in the language of piety. Indeed, it is more wicked given the fact that it does parade itself as piety but it’s nothing less than hatred and bigotry.
