Was the Shitah Mekubetzet a Sefardi or Ashkenazi? I know his name was Rav Betzalel Ashkenazi and that he was a learning mate of the Ari Hakadosh, Rav Yitzhak Luria Ashkenazi. They were in Egypt and were the students of the Radbaz who was a Sefardi. The Ari Hakadosh was born to an Ashkenazi father and Sefardi mother, and he moved to Egypt at the age of 8 when his father died and there he accepted mostly Sefardic customs.

Bob...The palestinian-Israeli conflict is one that is very disturbing. When watching how some media sources, such as the BBC or CNN, report the news, one would think the IDF goes out on a daily basis knocking on the homes of innocent palestinians and then randomly shooting and killing people, when in fact there is a lot more to it. Unfortunately, the palestinian terrorists use women and children as shields. They have teenagers shooting at Israeli soldiers. They teach their children to hate. They teach them that being a homicide bomber is glorious before g-d. They brainwash thousands of people who all want to become martyrs. Their leadership is corrupt and dangerous. They have terrorist groups such as Fatah, Hamas , Jihad, and many others who with out the presence of the IDF ( and lets not forget the almighty one blessed be he), would be commiting hundreds of more attacks every day. The truth is I have talked so much about this, I really don't feel like doing it again.
I advise you to check out camera.org It is an interesting site.
I'd be happy to see your response to what I had to say.
