"Is there anyone who has built a new home but not yet dedicated it? Let him go back to his home, lest he die in battle and another dedicate it."
"Is there anyone who has planted a vineyard but has never harvested it? Let him go back to his home, lest he die in battle and another initiate it."
"Is there anyone who has paid the bride-price for a wife, but who has not yet married her? Let him return to his home, lest he die in battle and another marry her."
I Maccabees 3:56: In the moment of resistance to the Syrio-Hellenistic empire ruled by Antiochus, Judah Maccabee, zs'l, applied this passage of Torah and ordered back to their homes the newly married, the new homebuilders, etc., and those who were gentle-hearted.
Today, some Israeli soldiers are, in a new situation, applying much the same basic sense of values that are marked out in Torah, attempting to distinguish defense from a war of conquest and occupation — and appealing to the individual "heart" as one of the crucial elements in making that decision.

HaShem Will Fight For You
24-25 Cheshvan, my neshama was was sanegor (defender) for Am Israel in Shamayim:
Devils in the Knesset blind innocent Jews of Eretz Israel, including the God-fearing Jews. I don't agree the way the IDF soldiers are being treated by the corrupt Zionist politicians. They send newlyweds and sinners to combat in war without proper equipment, without sufficient food and water. The Torah says "כל הירא ורך הלבב ילך וישב לביתו Any man that is fearful and has made for himself a new house, let him return to his house". (Newlyweds and sinners are exempt from all military service, in the front lines and on the home front, and are not mobilized at all).
How can the IDF army fight in combat and expect to win? The Torah exempts the fearful and fainthearted (sinners) from going to combat. The soldiers are so blinded, they don't even to remember to fear their transgressions. And for sure, this will hinder Divine Providence for success, and the soldiers' fears will affect fellow fighters.
This war is not up to us to win, all that is left for us to do is pray to our Merciful Father in Heaven. As it says, "ה' ילחם לכם ואתם תחרשון" HaShem will fight for you, you keep silent".
Sealing One's Destiny : “We are sorry, and we ask the people for forgiveness for relying on the country’s leadership and on the IDF General Staff. We are sorry for our dulled senses and obliviousness. We are sorry that we let irresponsible leaders grab the reins of the government. We are sorry that we didn’t protest and didn’t object. We are sorry that we weren’t involved enough in the life of this small country. We are sorry that we didn’t know that our lack of involvement would cost us all so much bloodshed. We returned from the war in shock – from the incapableness, disorganization and severe failures.
Am Yisrael is in Danger Rav Mutzafi, shlit"a: "Victory will come only through spiritual means. Meaning tshuva, good deeds, fulfilling Torah and Mitzvot, learning Torah, and not via the Army".
Surviving the "Strangulation Ring" Rosh Yeshivat HaMekubalim, "Nahar Shalom", HaRav Binyahu Shmeuli Shlita" "he very explicitly said "we cannot rely on our "strength" (army)."
Chazon Ish, zs'l: "Moshiach will not take over from them (zionists), something will happen in the interim. One clear day they will open the windows and they will see 'no more State'."
Residents of SaNur and Chomesh are RETURNING HOME to light Chanuka candles, defying the State Gov't and police. If you live in Israel, join Monday, 27 Kislev, 3rd day of Chanuka to light the Hanukia in the Shomron, Eretz Israel.
