Avi Shafran of Agudath Yisroel fame seems to be blaming the Haiti Earthquake on this comic strip by Eli Valley. Make sure to enlarge the comic strip and read it, it’s hilarious. The comic strip depicts almost exactly what I feel about certain Kiruv institutions that, in my opinion, like to rush impressionable young folks into a life of baby making and torah learning, by inviting them over for shabbos meals and bribing them with free trips to Israel.
