The Daily Shiur by Moreinu HaRav Eliezer Berland shlit”a, given on Sunday 27 Tevet, Parshat Va’era, after Maariv:
Six hours ago, two buses arrived at the Kotel – people without hands and without feet, because their legs were cut off — two hundred people without feet and without hands. And we have hundreds of killed and hundreds of wounded. This is all because there are still girls who did not lengthen their dresses, who go about with a bit of exposed leg. This causes them to cut off the legs of all the soldiers. There was never such a thing in any war: not in the Independence War, not in the Yom Kippur War, not in Operation Kadesh [the 1956 Suez Crisis], not in Operation Protective Edge [the 2014 Gaza War]. There was never such a thing that [so many] people, soldiers had their legs cut off. This is only because girls are not lengthening their dresses or possess a Xiaomi.
For every Xiaomi that they possess, another hundred soldiers are killed. Whether a boy or a girl, it makes no difference. Someone who has a Xiaomi and sees things that are forbidden to see, horrible abominations, will not leave Gehinom even during the revival of the dead.
Therefore, hands and legs are cut off of soldiers, off of civilians. Every day, another ten Jews are killed, and another ten – in Samaria, Gaza, the North, in every place. Only sixty missiles they fired at Meron — terrible horror, deathly fear. This is all because there are women who have not lengthened their dresses or have not thrown away their Xiaomi and smartphone. And there are boys who haven’t thrown them away. Everyone needs to smash their smartphone and Xiaomi now. At this moment, smash it to pieces. And then the complete redemption will come speedily in our days, Amen!
