Something to Really Think About...

This video gave me a lot to think about. The glory of victory through fighting the enemy ruthlessly made me proud, but what really made me think was the fact that even then the seeds of today's terrible situation had been planted. They may have seemed almost insignificant at the time (and indeed, the news reporter mentions it only as a side point,) but the fact that the Muslim presence for example was allowed to remain in Yerushalayim and elsewhere is what has brought us to the tragedies of today.

It is a powerful lesson in how we must always be thorough in our actions - something that seems so small now, could have much further-reaching, tragic results at a later stage...
