    FAA Flight ban on Israel / In CHITAS of the day

    The daily Torah portion that corresponds to the *very same day* as the FAA Flight ban on Israel

    Bamidbar 33:

    Verse 55. But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the Land from before you, then those whom you leave over will be as spikes in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they will harass you in the land in which you settle.

    Rashi’s Commentary:

    Thorns: Heb. וְלִצְנִינִם ……. a hedge of thorns which will surround you, fencing you in and confining you *so that none can leave or enter*. –

    יִרְמְיָהוּ א

    יח. וַאֲנִי הִנֵּה נְתַתִּיךָ הַיּוֹם
    לְעִיר מִבְצָר
    וּלְעַמּוּד בַּרְזֶל
    וּלְחֹמוֹת נְחֹשֶׁת
    עַל כָּל הָאָרֶץ
    לְמַלְכֵי יְהוּדָה
    לְשָׂרֶיהָ לְכֹהֲנֶיהָ וּלְעַם הָאָרֶץ:

    And I, behold I have made you today
    into a fortified city
    and into an iron pillar,
    and into copper walls
    over the entire land,
    over the kings of Judah,
    over its princes,
    over its priests,
    and over the people of the land.

    I’ve been having a difficult time trying to understand that lately. Thank you Mike Bloomberg for bringing light to the Rebbe’s words.

    Blitzer was RIGHT! Blomberg was WRONG!

    Blitzer was RIGHT! Blomberg was WRONG!

    The state department is using this as a tool to pressure Israel! Its absolutely clear!

    I always disagree with the liberal Blitzer, but I’m afraid here he’s right. The terrorist supporter, Obama may be using the FAA to pressure Israel. Just terrible, to hurt the economy of Israel so devastatingly.

    With all the criticizm that Bloomberg’s gotten while in office, all is as naught in comparison to this one beautiful move of his.

    Did they also ban flights to the Arab side?

    Did they also ban flights to the Arab side?

    Because if not they are either admitting that the bombardment by the Arabs is much more reckless and dangerous than that being done by Israel (the opposite of the picture being painted of Israel as the aggressor)- or else they are just openly showing a good old fashioned prejudice against Israel. Same old news.

    It doesn’t matter if he was right or wrong. It’s not an appropriate question to ask on air.

    What Arab side? There aren’t any airports in Gaza, and if there were they would be on the no fly list 24/7/365.

    Please, get your facts straight buddy.

    Bloomberg was right. Let me explain. What Blitzer, may he do Teshuva, wants, is to paint a picture that all Jews think that the US is out to get them. To the average goy who watches CNN this is irrational, unreasonable, and Kafouy Toiv, since the US gives EY so much! So, if Bloomberg will echo the sentiment that this is a political move on behalf of the US govt. we lose “support” from the “amcha goy” who watches CNN. Blitzer, is not STUPID. That is is his agenda. Bloomberg, to his credit, was “faster to the draw” than Blitzer,… Read more »

    Blitzer is nauseating to watch and listen to. He asks the DUMBEST questions and uses his horrible “I am a robot” tone. What an embarrassment to CNN!

    that is not the meaning of the haftora. Hashem is telling the navi that He will make like an iron pillar against the yidden who are angry at him for his words. look in the meforshim

    In 1998 there was a international airport opened in gaza called Yasser Arafat airport.
    It was destroyed by the IDF in 2001.
    Since then there has not been an airport.
