    First HaAretz editor David Landau begs Condoleeza Rice (in 2007) to "rape Israel" for the sake of "peace". Then Avrum Burg complains (in Landau's Ha'Aretz) that Jerusalem has become a "harlot". Can't the Ha'Aretz-Left decide what is really good for Israel? Burg is weak on facts: "We haven't had murders here yet". According to Ibrahim Burg all those exploding buses in Jerusalem were justified political demonstrations, eh? "Jerusalem is emptying out faster than any city in the world." Burg, the Socialist-Communist, doesn't understand that ever-rising housing prices are not consistent with his ludicrous claims of the city emptying out. "We are [..] seeking both Shabbat and peace." Then why are Leftist Secularist Anarchists and their Islamist companions harassing and attacking Jewish worshipers at Holy Jewish sites? It is 'leaders' of Burg's ilk who have done so much to destroy Israel. The less he is involved, the better off we all (Jews and Muslims alike) will be.
