    It does not mean to be a joke to name Amira Hass the candidate for the the President of Gaza.If Jews were among the marches, as they were or among Communists of Russia, International Brigades of Spain, journalists of Weimar Republic, Comintern activists & PM of France why Amira Hass can not be a candidate. Intelligent, democratic, a woman, a prominent journalist, politically gifted she is a good candidate. I am not asking Hamas opinion about her candidacy. I am asking my friends bloggers what is the reverse side of creativity , independence & ethical imperative Jews are so prominent of. Or put it simply : if Jews are " the salt of the Earh" what is the effect of too much salt. Somebody knows? At least with apllication to this Gaza episode or on much more fundamental level of Israel & Israel/Jewish political life. One might call it "Too much salt effect". I would not mind.
