Disengagement Repentance

I think that recent current events have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the ethnic cleansing of Jews from the Gaza Strip and the withdrawl of the Israeli Army from that part of the land of Israel was a terrible mistake.

How is it that Seargent Cosmic X knew that the "disengagement" was certain to fail, and big name Israeli politicians and army officers did not? Cosmic X immediately recognized the plan for what it was, a modern version of the "sin of the spies". The spies, for all kinds of reasons, did not want to fulfill the Divine commandment of conquering and settling the land. They caused our nation much suffering, as is well known. The rejection of the land of Israel is a sure recipe for disaster.

I am taking this opportunity to emplore all those that supported the expulsion, took part in it, or sat on the sidelines quietly to consider doing teshuvah, that is to say , repent.

It is well known that there are four steps in repenting:

1) Ceasing to do the particular sin
2) Confession (to God)
3) Regret
4) Accepting upon oneself not to do that particular sin again.

The power of teshuvah is great (see Rambam Laws of Repentance 7:6). Don't miss it.

Gotta hand it to him for doing just that.

Hopefully, others will follow suit.

I agree Yaak, certainly commendable. Let's hope that we will see a lot of real repentance which includes all four steps!
