Getting in the mood

Tonight is the start of Tisha B’Av.

Sometimes I find it difficult to get in the mood. This year, it has been much easier. I spent 10 minutes looking at the below the line comments at the Guardian on one of their several ‘we hate Israel’ pieces, and the mood arrived.

I mourn for the calamities that have befallen the Jewish people.

And I mourn for those in the Western world who are so blind in their hatred, they are surely damned.
