comment Where did Yitzchok pull out the blessing for Eisav from?
I saw this answer originally in a Likut Sefer in Shul. When I put it on I found the Chanukas Hatorah which seemed to be saying this. I agree it is not clear and I will put in the original source when I find it.

The answer is that at first Yitzchak did not think of this, but then when Eisav cried he thought of this which was not available until later.

@dotancohen: If the terrorist is being pulled out alive then there is no issue with destroying their home.

דברי יציב (ר' יקותיאל יהודה הלברשטם, האדמו"ר מצאנז, או"ח צז דבאמת מה שכתב השל"ה שחוה גרמה פגם הלבנה אין לזה מובן ע"פ פשטות, שהרי הלבנה נתמעטה עוד לפני שנוצרה חוה, אבל הדברים עמוקין וטמורין ומבוארים ע"ד הנסתר ואין לי עסק בנסתרות.

comment Why don't we all do Kemach Yashan?
We do not translate the Torah without the commentaries. Kedushin 36, 37 discusses whether Chodosh applies outside of Eretz Yisrael, grain of a non Jew, etc. As you can see from judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/6644/… there is disagreement how and when this applies and many major Halachic arbitrators hold it is not required in certain instances, thus many do not keep Chodosh.

@DoubleAA: Is it truly a case of need if one knows in advance that they have to rely on such a leniency?
