For nearly 7 minutes, dozens of passersby all but ignore the helpless man, until a few Orthodox-Jewish young men turn up at the scene."

Daily Emunah Lesson
כי תצא למלחמה על אויביך
The words Al Oivecha imply that you have the upper hand in the war. How can you have the upperhand before even going out to war? The Sifri explains this pasuk by saying Neged Oivecha, against your enemy. The question remains why does the Torah say Al Oivecha?
The seforim tell us that this war refers to the war against the Yetzer Hara. Rav Yisachar Dov of Belz says that his father took this one step further and explained that aside from the mitzvos and aveiros that every Jew is commanded to keep, each person is given a specific mission in this world. The way to know what your mission is, is by seeing which mitzva the Yetzer Hara fights hardest to keep you from fulfilling. If he can stop you from accomplishing your main purpose in the world he will have won the war. This is what Chazal meant when they said (Pirkei Avos 4:1), איזהו הגיבור הכובש את יצרו, who is the strong man, he who conquers his personal Yetzer.
Although we cannot win every battle in life, if Hashem puts us here to overcome a specific challenge, surely it is a battle we can win, and are guaranteed to win if we do our utmost. This is why the Torah says that when you wage war with all your might against your personal enemy, the victory is assured before you even start.
