In my role as minister of the interior
I do my best not to believe I'm inferior
This Tisha BAv (ninth of Av, a fast day which commemorates the destruction of the first and second temples in Jerusalem) I did not fast...I even forgot it was Tisha B"Av
I don't really mourn the absence of the temple, although perhaps I do feel the absence of a secure and settled Jewish sovereignity, where we are not always looking over "our" shoulder to see if we are acceptable, or to check who may be planning to attack and hurt "us"
I don't want animal sacrifices to be restored
and if the temple is going to be rebuilt let it be an eco temple, with solar panels on the roofs and an indoor swimming pool/ mikveh
and may only delicious vegetarian food be served there
