    "MarkL, "let us not blame Hamas" - Cipora My life would be easier were I not called upon by ignorance to educate Jews. This is not an new debate in Israel Cipora. When and how do Jews redeem Jews. Back in 1953, a minor political figure in Israel, a spokesman for the Ministry of Trade and Industry, Rudolf Kastner, was accused by the radical right of being a Nazi collaborator. This matter ultimately brought the collapse of Prime Minster Moshe Sharett's government. The legal issue Cipora, was whether by bribing the Nazis was Kastner guilty of being rewarded by the saving of 600 Jewish souls from extermination in the Holocaust. The Israeli courts ruled that in Saving 600 Jews, Kastner had essentially sold his soul to the devil. Kastner, for saving 600 Jews, was shot to death by former LEHI gunment, Ze'ev Eckstein, Dan Shemer and Yosef Menkes. I understand where you come from Cipora.
