Why are there a disproportionate amount of frum soldiers being killed in the current war?
Am I being a conspiracy theorist?

https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=134532.msg2762540#msg2762540

I don't think there are. There's just much more action. They are invading Gaza and the Frum one's are ussually the ones that are in the combat units.
They've killed, supposedly, about 10,000 terrorists so far. So its about 1 Soldier Hy"D per 300 terrorist YshV"z.

There have been many complaints in Israel that the IAF is constituted primarily of left wing secular soldiers and so is the Army Intelligence while the religious ones are sent to the front.

Is there a good explanation for that, given that Sarah sent him away for idolatry, adultery, and/or attempted murder?

I still don't get it. By all accounts, he was a פרא אדם before Sarah sent them out. So what was the sin?
But yes, we still see the לענות זרע אברהם ושרה to this day.

There’s a famous Vort בדרך צחות, how did Yoshmoel appear to accompany Avraham to the עקידה after he was sent away? When he heard a Jew is going to be killed, he came running back.

Joining mid discussion, but from the Pesukim it seems that the second it started affecting Yitzchok Sarah said enough. Avrohom was the מקור החסד, and was מקרב everyone, but only until it didn't affect his עבודת השם.

Of course children are innocent.

Even in this case the child is presumably innocent!

Excuse me? An 8 year old boy goes on a killing rampage and you are calling him innocent?! What have you been smoking?

OK, so why was he judged favorably after that, באשר הוא שם.

There is some part that must be נסתר here, Hashem also promised אברהם, when he asked לו ישמעאל יחיה לפניך, that ולישמעאל שמעתיך, that he'll be ידו בכל ויד כל בו, and לא יספר מרוב.

Sen. Bernie Sanders rejected calls for a ceasefire. Says Hamas has to go.

When you're to the left of Bernie Sanders, you know you're off the reservation.

He still supports fake news in Gaza leading the PR war against common sense. But I guess, if even he doesn't support a long term ceasefire...

Meaning he still calls it a genocide and things like that which are hateful, incite hate, and factually proven incorrect.
