comment Killing Civilians in a defensive war
@dotancohen is it possible that Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu zt'l knows better than you the torah perspective on this question? we are in a state of war. if we lose even once, we will all be slaughtered brutally and mercilessly. what you are doing is noble but it might not be best policy long term

comment How are “Orthoprax” people treated in halacha?
@Matt and this is why i wrote in the answer that i'm not so sure they really dont believe. many are just confused souls who believe deep down but wont admit it

comment Killing Civilians in a defensive war
@dotancohen your policy is obviously not working. the arabs'desire to destroy israel is only increasing from all perspectives. i think we will see in the end that the rabbi was right. you have noble intentions but sometimes its just kill or be killed

@Matt could also be that today taava/mental distraction/doubt is much stronger than in the rambam's time due to technology, darwin, etc, so the rambam may not be so stringent with his words if he lived in our times

comment How are “Orthoprax” people treated in halacha?
@Matt because he knew the rambam and those after him. sefer hamitzvot is not a mussar sefer. the chafetz chaim wrote it as a practical work as he explained in the intro there

comment Can demons (shedim) masquerade Bas Kols?
if you are a pure and clean holy man, the shedim have no power over you as brought down in shaarei kedusha. see judaism.stackexchange.com/a/48552/1857
