Liberals like Rabbi Kanefsky do harm by providing fodder for our enemies, thus betraying the cause of Klal Yisroel. But, at their core, they are not Hamas, they are Woodstock children who never grew up. They should not be in positions of leadership or power, for they are just foundlings. They use “magical thinking”—if they wish things to be so, if it seems to be the good thing to be self destructive and weak, and it feels good, than by, G-d, let’s do it!
Who cares what the consequences are. It doesn’t matter what the facts on the ground are, what realpolitik demands, what history has proven. What really counts is what makes us feel self-righteous and good. The one word that describes Rabbi Kanefsky is: immature.
The naivete that leads a flower child to instruct her offspring to lie on the ground and tell the bully who has terrorized him, “Hey, come on, I should be honest with you, I’ve taken some self defense courses and I might beat you this time. I thought it only fair to warn you.”
Grow up Rabbi Kanefsky.
