So This is How It Begins

The Jewish world is now in a period known as "Bein HaMeitzarim" or the "Three Weeks", which lead into Tisha B'Av. Tisha B'Av, a fast day, commemorates the destruction of the Temples in Jerusalem and the loss of Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel.

And is that worse or better than being forced out by superior military might?
