comment Quote from the Chazzon Ish about “Mizrachim”
@Yehoshua I think it's probably best for us all to take a hard look at what was actually stated/written/intended before coming to any conclusions.

comment Quote from the Chazzon Ish about “Mizrachim”
If it helps, I heard this directly from a local Talmid Hakham. I don't remember if he cited a sefer; but, I thought it might add credence to the question to include my personal experience.

comment What is the Jewish position on aggressive acts of war?
You might consider HaRaMBa"M's stance in Mishneh Torah, Hilkhot Melakhim U'Milhhamotehem, Ch. 5 particularly halakhot 1 and 2

comment What is the purpose of life on this earth
@cham1 Firstly, it's not that "I" need citations. I try to bear the less-informed reader in mind when writing/reading questions/answers. Secondly, some suggestions: 1) From where do we know that "[HaShem Created] the whole world only for the purpose of [humans] on [Earth]" and that thus "everything else is there for [humankind's] benefit"? 2) From where do we know that "[the woman's] purpose is mainly to help the man obtain his"? 3) From where do we know that "some men [...] help other men obtain [their goal]"?

I find the question a bit rant-like. IMHO, improved formatting and citations could improve it greatly.
