Haven’t We Suffered Enough?

Because of Kamtza and Bar Kamtza, Jerusalem was destroyed. Because of a rooster and a hen, Tur Malka was destroyed. Because of a wagon axle, Beitar was destroyed. (Gittin 55b-57a)

These three large cities were destroyed and thousands of their inhabitants slain because of petty reasons… The sins which caused G-d to decree these punishments – baseless hatred and malicious gossip – are considered trivial by people in comparison to murder and incest… Haven’t we suffered enough death and destruction? If we want our suffering to end, let us put aside our differences and reach out with love… (Ben Yehoyada)
