The Wisdom of Youth

How can it be that a man can be so wise at 28 and so stupid at 63? Bibi Netanyahu at 28… He says, at one point, he is 28 years old and has fought in 2 wars….more than 30 years later, my son is 26 years old and has fought in one war, and was called up in preparation for another…

    Shalom,
    I would be the first to disagree with the PM’s policies: However i came upon this recently and felt that in this time of emnity between Jews in Israel, we might want to take a step back and consider our speach. This is from Yeshivat Ateret Yerushalayim
    From the teachings of the Rosh Yeshiva
    Ha-Rav Shlomo Aviner Shlit”a
    Honoring the Prime Minister of Israel
    Q: Is there a special prohibition against saying insulting things about the Prime Minster of Israel?
    A: Yes. There is a prohibition against saying such things about any person, and it is all the more severe regarding the Prime Minster, since some of the laws regarding a king also apply to him. See Shut Mishpat Cohain #143 and onward.
