I think this insight by Rabbi Rayner is one- eyed....he quotes the prophets in righteousness etc. but has forgotten that G-d has given the children of Israel the Land of Israel and commanded us never to give it away to anyone... it is not ours to give as we are only the caretakers of the Land until the Messiah comes.
If we had not allowed these terrorists to come in the first place we would not have the problems today. We are also commanded 'if our enemy comes to kill us then we must kill him first '!! We have to defend ourselves against these evil people or be killed...and because we have 'gone the extra mile' ,upholding the Torah showing understanding and caring for our neighbours ,we have the problems of these murderers TODAY.
Maybe Rabbi Rayner should move to Israel to live and then see what he would say !!
