View From a Height
Commentary from the Mile High City
Monday, March 31, 2003
Here's the official prayer being circulated by the Union of Orthodox Synagogues, and the Rabbinical Council of America, both organizations representing the preponderance of Orthodox synagogues in the US:

Almighty God on High, omnipotent King, look down from your Sanctified Abode and bless the valiant soldiers of the American Military Forces who risk their lives to protect the welfare of all your creation. Benevolent God, be their shelter and fortress, and do not allow them to falter. May harmony dwell in their ranks, victory in their battalions. Fill their hearts with faith and courage to thwart the evil schemes of our enemies and to abolish every rule of evil. Protect them on land, in the air, and in the sea, and destroy their adversaries. Guide them in peace, lead them toward peace, and return them speedily to their families alive and unharmed, as it is written: "God will shield you from all evil; He will guard your soul. God will safeguard your departure and arrival, from now and forevermore." Grant us true peace in fulfillment of the prophecy: "Nation shall not life up sword against another nation, nor shall they learn war any more." Let all the inhabitants of the world know that Dominion is Yours, and Your Name inspires are upon all the You have created. May this be Your will, and let us say, Amen.

I challenge the mullahs in this country, who portray themselves as patriotic Americans, to say the same thing. If they want to replace the Biblical quotes with Koranic ones, so be it.
