Basically I am looking for more information from neutral or sympathetic sources about Rabbi Aharon Leib Shteinman's recent statement saying something along the lines of it was too hard for Bnei Torah to await for Moshiach.
The initial report I saw here was an editorial, with a link to an attempted (but incomplete) transcript. And although it has the audio, I can't quite parse it. Also, there may have been subsequent clarification.
According to what was reported, he said that no one fulfills the obligation of waiting for Moshiach, therefore we hope that they fulfill the other Mitzvos and rely on Rabbi Hillel for the failure to do it.
Besides the fact that I don't understand this at all (Hillel isn't understood to deny a messianic era, just a king, AFAIK, so why would the rest change?), Googleing to find any further statements about this didn't turn up much, rather a secondary, and again plainly unsympathetic, sites, which are pointing out Rabbi Shteinman's earlier promotion of the idea of Torah and Mitzvah observance being tied to Moshiach, e.g. here:
"The Redemption is very near," he added. "We must do everything we can to fulfill Torah and Mitzvos, to the extent of self-sacrifice."
So what do neutral and/or sympathetic people say about this conversation? Or has he himself clarified since then?
