More On Sin'ath Hinam (Baseless Hatred)

10 of the Fifth Month 5771

As I just mentioned in another post, Sin'ath Hinam (baseless hatred) is a popular concept to mention this time of year, around the Fast of the Fifth Month.

But, do we really "walk the walk" as much as we like to "talk the talk?"

Here is something which I saw being sent around Facebook:

15 year old girl walking with her son this year. People call her a slut. No one knows she was raped when she was 13. People call an obese man fat. No one knows he's seriously ill, which makes him fat. People read one ugly old man. Nobody knows that he was wounded in his face while fighting a war for our country.

As cliché as the above may sound, not being so quick to judge others, is a good place to start.
