Rabbi Weingarten noted that as the time to implement the Peace Plan, it becomes clear that Israel will be forced to divide the land in direct contravention of Biblical law.
“And now, the American government wants Israel to walk away from the land that God told us to protect, the land that we finally returned to after 2,000 years,” Rabb Weingarten said. “God forbid, if the US forces us to do that, will there be another measure for measure teaching them what it means to leave their land? I can’t imagine it but who could have imagined the coronavirus and then these riots?”
Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, agreed, noting that this was indeed a case of measure for measure.
