לוי & פנחס, both risked their lives by being קנאים (zealots) where immorality
was involved, yet פנחס was praised for his קנאות and לוי was ostracized
for his קנאות
The Netziv in (שו"ת משיב דבר (ח"א מ"ד explains that practising קנאות
should not be done even by Chasidim who are doing it for the sake and
love of Hashem. It may only be done by Talmidei Chachamim using
their הגיון תורה (Torah logic- Hashkafah)
They are the only ones who know and understand the very minute and
precise details as to when to be מקדש שם שמים by going out and fight
for the cause and when to refrain from קנאות to avoid 'חילול ה.
Perhaps according to the Netziv, in the future, if & when there will be
a need to stop the traffic and Egged buses on Kikar Shabbos, they
should have the Ziknei Roshei Yeshiva sit down in the middle of the
street instead of 14-year-old Bachurim.
