This Tisha B’Av, let us work to end hate

temple on fire

Arutz Sheva: Are we allowed to hate? Clearly so, but only sparingly and when there is no other alternative. For it is almost always appropriate to reserve that hatred as an emotion directed at someone who has caused us terrible injustice and not at entire sectors of the population.

Should we hate a killer? Of course. But should we hate the community in which he or she was raised? Almost never. Should we hate our political opponents? Rarely, and even then without alienating and hating anyone who supports them.
