    I suppose the next target will be Elliott Horowitz, another Bar Ilan history professor whose new book, Reckless Rites, deals with the darker side of Jewish attitudes toward Christians and Christianity from late antiquity to modern times. Horowitz argues that Jews, as a religious minority in a Christian culture that treated them with contempt, harbored deep feelings of animosity toward Christians, and, while generally keeping such feelings to themselves, acted them out annually on the one occasion that served for their ritual expression and release--on Purim. Should he too not be fired, tortured on the racks of the Israeli intellectual inquisition, and academically burned alive for disparaging the Jewish people? Forget that B. Goldstein(sorry, I can't bring myself to use "baruch" in this context) is a contemporary example of what Horowitz is talking about. How are his arguments that different from Toaffs'? Shouldn't he also be tortured on inquisitorial rack? Who is next?
