DIN Wishes Both Ukraine and Russia "Hatzlacha" in Their War

Let them wipe each other off soon, but like R' Yoelish Teitelbaum z"l wrote in his book "Al Hagilah" in reference to his wish that the State of Israel collapses," I pray that Jewish blood be spared." 

 Israel condemned Ukraine’s decision to vote in favor of an anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations last Friday, as Kyiv continues to pressure the Jewish state to provide it with advanced weaponry.

On Friday, Israeli ambassador to Ukraine, Michael Brodsky, took Kyiv to task after the Ukrainian delegation to the United Nations voted in favor of a draft resolution in the General Assembly’s Special Political and Decolonization Committee backed by the Palestinian Authority’s delegation.

Brodsky took to Twitter shortly after the vote, calling Ukraine out over its U.N. vote.

“Ukraine’s support of the UN resolution ‘Israeli Practices’, denying Jewish ties to Temple Mount and calling for ICJ advisory opinion is extremely disappointing. Supporting anti Israeli initiatives in the UN doesn’t help to build trust between Israel and Ukraine,” Brodsky tweeted.

The resolution, which passed the committee by a margin of 98 to 17 with 52 abstentions, accused Israel of denying Palestinian Arabs the right to self-determination, negated Israel’s historical connection to the Temple Mount, and urged the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to render an opinion against Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria.

The countries that voted with Israel in opposing the resolution were Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Guatemala, Hungary, Italy, Liberia, Lithuania, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and the United States.

I don't understand why Israelis are so defensive about their reluctance to arm Ukraine, and why is Israel so meek in it's criticism of antisemitic votes in the UN...

It is 100% true that the moral high ground is on the side of Ukraine, and very few upright citizens of this universe can sympathize with the aggressive murderous Russia and all it's lies and pretexts. Having said that, I think we should be responding more like...

-Israel is a democracy.. And it would be difficult to convince a nation to stick out it's neck for Ukraine, when a hundred and fifty thousand holocoust survivors are still alive in Israel, and all their decedents, that vividly remember the Ukrainian people as the worst and most cruel corroborators of Nazi genocide.

-Today's vote in the UN demonstrates, that the Ukrainians HAVE NOT repented from their cruel antisemitic past. Even being completely preoccupied with an existential war, Ukraine found the time to engage in their favorite pass time... attacking innocent jews.
