Jewish love for Israel and fellow man -- Wherfore Art Thou? -- The real Shakespearean tragedy

Another Observation:

After reading Kol Dodi Dofek, it seems that the Rav felt that the American Jewish community could have done so much more during World War II and could have saved many Jews from annihilation during the Holocaust.

Though I disagree with the comparison of the Holocaust to the current situation with the Yishuvim and felt it was wrong to wear Stars of David prior to the Gush Katif expulsion, the silence of the Jewish community at large regarding Yehuda, Aza and Shomron grows more and more each day. It is as if the Rav could have reiterated his Drasha today. His words should speak volumes to World Jewry. They should be deafening.

Yet I only hear silence.
