    "The more scorn Burg pours on his enemies is another feather in his cap proving his own enlightenment bolstering his stature amongst his anti-Zionist friends." Shlomo T. I have read Avraham Burg over the years and he seems like a very principled man . I don't believe he is trying to score a feather in his cap with his scorn of others but Israel has gotten way out of bounds (territorial ) with its unruly behavior and the radical rabbis are in the way of bringing it back into line and whether they like it or not -they will have to be moved. That isn't to say Israel can't find a place for them and allow them to be themselves too. Afer all, isn't democracy about our right to be different and in the end doesn't that safeguard all our rights? Dutch
