Look who's (not) praying now...
I have the utmost respect for Israel's media.
I have no doubt that all of their calls for prayer on behalf of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, along with their efforts to determine who in fact was and was not praying for him, were all out of a genuine concern for the well-being of the leader of the Jewish State and People.
As such, I am confident that the Israeli media will be no less vigorous in their calls for prayer by the Israeli public on behalf of Rabbi Yitzhak Kedouri (Yitzhak ben Tufcha), the 100+/- year old Kabalistic sage who is currently fighting for his life in an Israeli hospital, and who so many among the Jewish People, particularly within Israel, have looked to for blessings and prayers for divine intervention upon their behalf.
It's just a matter of time before the Israeli media will pick up on it...
Any minute now, I'm sure of it...
I just can't imagine that the Israeli media would allow itself to be guilty of such a double standard - of politicizing prayer and using it to adavance their own leftist / secular political agenda, would they?
