  1. It is a great book. Too bad you have not read the rest of the Story. God wins and Isreal will overcome her enemies.

  2. How does the nation of Israel win when its Temple is destroyed & its inhabitants sent into exile for generations? That’s a victory? In those terms, the IDF has won a great victory in Lebanon despite the fact that it can’t even protect Kiryat Shmona, let alone the rest of the north from Hezbollah & its rockets.

    If Jeremiah or whoever wrote Eicha were alive today he’d be on my side & not yours. Our Prophets understood morality and they always called for the people of Israel to observe a higher moral standard. They understood immorality among Israel & called it to obey its true calling to be a light unto the nations. Now, Israel represents blight & darkness among the nations. But someday it will represent something better.
