Four Questions Of Tisha Baav

The four questions- Whose fault was it?

The Bais Hamikdash was destroyed because of Kamtza and Bar Kamtza. (Gittin 55b)

1) Why was Kamtza at fault?

2) Why was the Ba’al Haseudah not at fault ? Shouldn’t he be the number one culprit ?

3) Why were  the Rabonon who  kept quiet at the meal not at fault?

4) The Gemoro on 56a said it was R. Zecharia ben Avkulas fault

Answer To The Four Questions:

When the Gemoro says "because of Kamtza & Bar Kamtza the Bais Hamikdash

was destroyed", The Gemoro doesn't put the blame on these

two people. The Gemoro says because of the story of Kamtza Bar Kamtza

the Bais Hamikdash was destroyed.

In the story, there are, whom to blame. Bar Kamtza, Ba'al Haseudah,

Rabonon and maybe even Kamtza*

*The Ben Ish Chai writes that Kamtza which means Grasshopper is a code name

for R. Zecharya ben Avkulas
