Kuddos to the true Jewish voice of Haaretz, rebels with an ancient cause, keeping alive Jewish wisdom, reason and fairness, compassion and forgiveness. No schmucks polishing their grudges and rightessnous. Remembering us that hate will enslave and destroy the hater, not his enemy. That created injustice eventually will hunt the creator. That free will is holy and magical as well as a hard and bitter pain in the ass, that sacrifices blesses the sacrificier and that there always is a choice. That these so own minded Jews once decided to ignite the promise of bringing tikkun olam, even to Gentiles who may not deserve it or be worthy of it and who must never succeed in destroying that promise. That a contract is a contract and that God remembers better than elephants. BTW: have send e-mails to first EU president Van Rompuy to make Bradley Burston and Amira Hass citizens of honour of the EU under the motto: wish we had them.
