Comfort, Comfort

This week's Haftorah begins with the prophecy: "Nachamu, nachamu ami, comfort, comfort my people." Why the double expression of consolation?

The answer can be found in the strange Talmudic story of R' Akiva laughing upon seeing foxes walk out of the ruins of the Temple.

Based on Likkutei Sichos vol. 19, pp. 67-79.
