    As an American Jew, who has recently moved to Israel, I would like to know how Netanyahu's ruling coalition can survive in the Knesset, with his double talk and refusal to resume peace negotiations. How dare he endanger this country by refusing The Quartet's plan to restart Peace talks. It's one thing for a Jew to accept Torah as his rule and guide, but a far different one to justify the denial of rights and freedom to Gentiles as a consequence thereof. This is in fact what is transpiring . I am surprised by how much traditional Jewry has changed since my grandparent's generation. I recall that generation's unique sense of empathy for the rights and needs of the oppressed. Sadly, that transformative capacity appears to have died out with the loss of Yiddish culture. Those who are most committed now have an 'Uzi' culture. As Golda Meir said: 'We can forgive you for having killed our children. But we can never forgive you for making our children into killers.' Shana Tova.
