You write, "As if our diplomatic quarrels weren't enough, the worst of our enemies would be glad to dress this epic conflict in the garb of a holy war. We had better not join ranks with them, even if unintentionally." I must agree. Invoking ancient texts, despite their centrality in the conflict, is not necessarily productive. Yet you finish your article by quoting God's command to Abraham, "to 'Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it.'" Perhaps you need to review your article before publishing. Your conflicting statements demonstrate rashness more unprofessional than your condescending tone towards Elie Wiesel.
