Terrible Tragedy

The Palistinian police murdered at least one Israeli this morning not far from the Holy Tomb of Yosef Hatzadik. May H"Y console his family (wife and 4 children, parents etc.) and the rest of Israel who will suffer his loss. May his death ameliorate all judgement from the Jews.

Let it be clear that in my humble opinion his death and the injuries of all involved are very much due to their following a certain rabbi who encourages insanity. It is well known and established that the palestinians murder unarmed civilians when ever they get the chance, yet this group, under the influence of their rabbi relies on miracles (which is against our Sages who taught that one should never really on miracles). True Breslovers don't follow the meforsumim (famous) rabbis of today, God forbid! True Breslovers believe in the Petek and Saba who said that one should definitely not risk his life to go visit the Holy Tomb of Yosef Hatzadik. It is true that there are thousands of miracles, (and I know personally someone who walked there on foot and would have returned safely, but was arrested and fined 1500 shekel), just as there are on a daily basis from all the mortars that the arabs rain down on Israel - which only catch the public interest when 1 in about 1000 actually does serious damage. But that 1, who cares in how many, is much too precious to be lost. The Zohar asks how Kaleb risked his life to go to Chevron to visit the Patriarchs, and answers that one who is very caught up in the turmoils of his soul doesn't pay much attention to the obstacles on the way to Tzadik. This however is definitely not the case today when one can go safely to Rabbi Nachman in Uman (may we merit to see his Holy Tomb moved to Jerusalem in the very near future) the Patriarchs and Rashbi and many other Tzadikim and even to Yosef Hatzadik in a safe fashion.

May H"Y have great mercy and compassion on His chosen people and on the whole world and console us.

R' Yisroel Karduner, a true breslover, risked his life regularly going to Meron, and the Kotel, when it was also considered insane to do so.
