Erev Shabbath Qodesh Parshath Mas'ei/Rosh Hodesh of the Fifth Month 5765
"If you do not dispossess the inhabitants of the Land from before, those whom you allow to stay will be stingers in your eyes and thorns in your sides and harrass you in the Land in which you live."
Well, in case it's not as clear to you as it is to me, here is one example of many...
Three years ago, (9 Tammuz 5762/Junne 19, 2002) suicide bomber blew himself up at the French Hill hitchhiking area, killing seven Jews HY"D. Many others were injured.
I myself, escaping Baruch HaShem with little injury, hit by a mangled screw in my side (Read: "a thorn").
Amongst the remaining injured, another young man from was hit by the same in the eye (Read: "a stinger").
Now, do you have any questions??
