Why on the 9th of Av?

I was listening to Michael Savage, a conservative radio commentator, during the first days of the Disengagement, and he kept asking the same question over and over.

Why did Sharon do this awful deed on the 9th of Av?

The day that the Nazis signed the papers for the final solution.

The day the Jews were ejected from Spain.

The day the 1st and 2nd Temples were destroyed.

The day the Jews themselves, ourselves, rejected Israel in the first place, during the episode of the spys.

Why did he choose to throw 9000 Jews out of their homes?

I mean, if he was going to throw these people out of thier homes, why did he choose this particular day to do it? He's not a fool. He's an educated person. He knows the sigficance of what the 9th of Av means. And he knows that 30% of the his population fasts on this day.

Why would he choose to throw religious Jews out of their homes on this worst day of the calender?


What other conclusion can you come to? He chose this day on purpost? Why this day?

Just to stick his finger in the eye, just to insult religious Jews?

I've said more than once that this plan and the ideology that drives it is insane.

If you're surrounded by hostile foreign nations, isn't it just a little crazy to pick a fight with your own counrymen?

But that's what has happened. The Israeli government has declared war on it's own people: religious Jews.
