It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Northern Israel On Fire

A fire broke out in the Mount Carmel area of northern Israel around 10:00 am on Thursday. There are conflicting reports. Arson is not being ruled out, especially since some are saying that the fire appears to have started around the same time in three separate locations. At least 40 are dead. For a really good timeline I suggest keeping up with things over at the Muqata. Jameel will resume live blogging soon I would imagine. It's almost 7:30 on Friday morning over there.

As we remember the miracle of the flames of Chanukah, let us pray that we see a miracle in these fires being put out quickly. The foreign fire fighting planes should be there and in action now.
