I keep returning to the talkback to this article, astonished to find such an incredible display of apologetics for racism. The deal is this: Israel is responsible for the education of Jerusalemites. It is failing to do so. If Jews anywhere in the diaspora were thus victimized there would be legitimately an uproar. There should be an equal one here. To deprive a 9 year old of an education. This is pitiful and no amount of obfuscation changes this reality. Jews and all others should be appalled by this. Bullshit to the apologists who bewail the lack of democracy in the arab world. What the hell does this have to do with a 9 year old girl who needs an education. It is becoming very difficult to defend Israel. Perhaps this is one of the reasons Jews in the diaspora feel so alienated by present day Israel.
