Hi Yaakov- I generally agree with much of what you say and appreciate you're doing it. But is there really a growing mindset like this in Israel? Is there really a movement to lionise Yigal Amir and release him from prison? I'm asking because I don't know, not to imply disagreement. Any moderate/rational websites discussing these phenomena? But I also have to question you're wishing ill on his children. I don't know Judiasm well and am uncertain about the importance of circumsision. If it's like baptism is to Christians, this seems extremely harsh. I don't think the sins of the father should be visited upon his children. I'm not sure where I've read this, but I thought it was part of the Torah/Old Testament. I also disagree about US Jews. They're very well integrated in our society (aren't you?) and, like US Muslims, are less likely than their European counterparts to be extreme. Israelis are a different matter. I do not trust most of them.
