Torah Portion of Lech Licha -- How Good Were the Bad Kings


In this weeks Torah Portion - Lech Licha, the 4 kings capture Lot the nephew of Abraham, and Abraham decimates them, chasing them till he finishes them off. The medrash recounts many awesome miracles that took place for Abrahams favor, so obviously these 4 kings are the epitome of evil, right?! So take a look at what they did other than capturing Lot. They smote AMULAIK (14:7 - Rashi explains that even though Amulaik only came into the world later, these people are called after them, not so complimentary....), and they knocked out SADOM and GEMORA and all those evil places. So from this we see that kingdoms and governments can show a front of campaigning glorious righteous crusades, but they are really up to no good, and the true tzaddik would readily see to their utter destruction.
