Get the Cheats but Don't Tread on Us
By all legitimate means, the government -- any government --
should catch anyone who cheats it. We make no defense of
those who lie or misrepresent the truth in any way in order
to collect money to which they are not entitled. The
government should catch whoever breaks the law and take
appropriate punitive action. We say this clearly so that
there will be no mistake.
The Main Points of HaRav Shteinman's Address: "How Great are
Morai verabbosai, the rabbonim have all spoken at
length already, stressing the importance of Lev L'Achim,
which is doing great rescue work for Klal Yisroel. If

difficult to digest suffering such as this. How much more
difficult it is to find the suitable words to attempt to
comfort, to bring solace to those mourners.

days when he was a part of Unit 101 or when he charged over
the Suez Canal decades ago. Now he is summoning all of his
tactical ability, all of his knowledge and experience, to win
the great battle before him. The battle for peace, the battle
to implement the disengagement plan.
