Lubavitch Lunatics

Ladies and gentlemen, THIS crosses the line of acceptable ways of protesting the disengagement:
Members of a New York-based ultra-Orthodox Jewish movement were threatening to commit mass suicide on Wednesday in protest at the Gaza Strip pull-out, security sources and associates said.

The members of the Lubavitch movement had barricaded themselves inside a communal bomb shelter at the main Gaza Strip settlement of Neve Dekalim with gas cylinders, said their local leader, Rabbi Yigal Kirshenzaft.

"There are about 20 of them shut inside a bomb shelter and say they have gas there," he said.

Aside from this being absolutely forbidden according to any halachic authority...

Where does it say they don't live there? It just says Chabad is NY-based.

But does it really matter where their from? They're nuts. Who cares why they want to commit suicide?

I've been told by a relative of one of those involved that they're from Crown Heights-or at least one definitely is. I'll post more on it (and his picture) tomorrow.

And, for full disclosure, I will not tolerate any more Lubavitch-bashing comments on this threat and that's why the above comment was ZAPPED. There's a reason I didn't go down that road in my original post. We need ahavas chinam and ahavas yisrael at this painful time, not sinas chinam. Clearly we have more than enough of of the latter to have lasted this long in galus.
