A GENERAL WARNING TO THE JEWISH PUBLIC
Every Christian and missionary organization is hoping to capitalize on the crisis situation in Israel in order to push their man-god idolatry onto Jews. I wish I had the room here to name all the names and show you how much money they have already collected in "donations" to "help Israel." [One prominent group actually living in Shomron is trying to raise 29 million dollars]. But anyway we don't want to give them the publicity.
They are talking amongst themselves about the great opportunity this presents to give gifts to Jews in the name of their man-god while they are feeling most vulnerable and hope they will think kindly toward that false religion as a result.
It is forbidden to accept these gifts, even in the name of pikuach nefesh. The supplies on offer are also being provided by Jewish sources, so if you feel the need of them, you must go to a fellow Jew for those items and take nothing from the Christians. It would be a chillul Hashem because they report back to their followers how the Jews do not take care of each other and how it is left to them to do it as an act of Christian kindness.
Their "love and kindness" is a poison. It's a sham and a spiritual crime deserving of the death penalty al pi halachah. HKB"H can provide all your needs through acceptable avenues. If He doesn't provide it, you don't need it.
A Purim Lesson for Simchat Torah
Since the murderous bloody massacre of our people on Shabbat-Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah, I've seen a particular phrase used over and over in shocked awe: "They [Hamas] killed men and women as well as babies and old people."
That echoed in my mind.
"...to destroy, kill, and cause to perish all the Jews, both young and old, little children and women, on one day...." (Megillat Esther)
