EMPTY PRAYERS

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

Al­though Lord Sacks makes a pow­er­ful bi­b­li­cal case for the use of prayer in de­liv­er­ing Is­rael from present ter­ror in Jerusalem ( JC on­line, Oct 16),the prob­lem is that the other side are also pray­ing to the very same God.

Ev­ery time an Arab goes into bat­tle he shouts Al­lahu Ak­bar, God is great. But God did not stop the geno­cide of Jews in the Holo­caust any more than he has saved the lives of Mus­lims fight­ing in Syria. The Arab-Is­raeli con­flict can­not be solved by prayer. Stan Labovitch Vale Road Wind­sor
