“Rabbi Schneerson always supported Israeli wars and opposed any retreat. In 1974 he strongly opposed the Israeli withdrawal from the Suez area. He promised Israel divine favors if it persisted in occupying the land.”
“I have profound respect for the late Rebbe and his legacy. However, I remember very clearly those talks that [Schneerson] gave – the ones we studied every year in elementary school about the unimportance of ‘secular’ (non-religious, formal) education, and the great importance of only studying limmudei kodesh (holy studies). As a result of this attitude, thousands of students were not taught anything other than the Bible throughout our years attending Chabad institutions.” (AGAIN THIS IS A CLAIM WEIR SHOULD HAVE CHALLENGED. CHABAD YOUTH ARE TAUGHT MAINLY FROM THE TALMUD AND SUBSIDIARY TEXTS, NOT THE BIBLE — Michael Hoffman).
