Dear Akiva Eldar, Chag Sameach. May I kindly remind you that the very rabbi who you are named after is mentioned in the Haggadah. Our Haggadah reads,"It happened that Rabbi Eliezer, Rabbi Yehoshua, Rabbi Elazar ben Azaryah, Rabbi Akiva and Rabbi Tarphon were reclining [at a seder] in Bnei Berak. They were discussing the exodus from Egypt all that night..." What were they doing in B'nai Berak? Akiba and his many elders joined Bar Kochva and called for revolt against the Romans who ruled the land of Israel. Akiva and his many pupils joined Bar Kochva and fought as part of the rebellion. We remember your namesake Rabbi Akiva not only as a wise Rabbi but also as a courageous fighter." Which Akiva are you? It seems that you advocate that the very freedom we are reminded to cherish during Passover should be given away for the sake of political expediency and falsehood...Next Year in Jerusalem should means "ALL OF JERUSALEM." Curious to hear your interpretation of this fact.
