Tzivos Hashem, the international Lubavitch youth group, has "We Want Moshiach Now!" in its logo, and Lubavitch children are taught to say and sing that phrase.
I have heard that some authorities have publicly expressed disagreement with, even protested, the use of the phrase.
- On what basis? (Citations, please, where possible.)
- How do they reconcile their disagreement with our constant prayers for mashiach now? For example, in sh'mone esre we say "וקבצנו יחד מהרה… לארצנו" and "ומלוך עלינו מהרה" and "וכסא דוד עבדך מהרה לתוכה תכין" and "את צמח דוד עבדך מהרה תצמיח".
