We read in this week’s parsha about Rivka’s difficult pregnancy. She is informed that “shnei goyim bevitneich,” she would be giving birth to two distinct personalities, Yitzchok and Eisov, who would lead two separate nations.

I awoke to the nightmare with a telephone call from the Knesset, immediately after the terror attack. I’m not in the habit of turning on the radio when I get up in the mornings and don’t even look at my cell phone until after shacharis. But it was my home telephone that brought me the devastating news. “Hello,” said the voice on the line, “I’m calling from the Knesset. Can you tell us which members of the Shas party live in Har Nof?”

Once again, we are numb and at a loss for words. Lines we thought would never be crossed have been trampled. Jews the world over woke up to hear the awful, heart-rending news. Jews davening in a Har Nof shul were shot and stabbed to death. For seven minutes the mashchis was given reshus to spill holy Jewish blood. So many pesukim came to mind, “shofchu domom kamayim sevivos Yerushalayim.” “Im yeihoreig b’mikdash Hashem…” We have experienced so many awful deaths in Eretz Yisroel, but rarely like this. The pictures are difficult to look at. They send a shiver up and down our collective spines and cause our souls to flutter.

We are speechless. Shocked. Broken.

And afraid.

Four men go to daven Shacharis one morning and they are bludgeoned to death. Twenty-four yesomim. Shattered families. The middas hadin has shaken us to our very core. And only He will be able to provide the nechamah for those in need. But make no mistake about it. The Ribbono Shel Olam is speaking to us in a very clear and loud Voice, and we cannot ignore Him.

In an exclusive interview with the Yated, Aryeh Deri, the chairman of the Shas party, briefly plays the role of political pundit. In his own words and style, he explains who is against whom and what is happening today in the current Israeli government, which everyone predicts will not last much longer.
