At annual Super Bowl Sunday prayer event, held in Israel for the first time, women at the Western Wall rejoiced in the recent egalitarian win there. But some women consider it a loss.20:11 07.02.16 | 0 comments
You know you are reading a fallacious argument when fundamental facts that impinge on the discussion are completely omitted. Like the fact that Jewish history is unique -not directly comparable to any other-- and it thus would lead to new complexities in the creation of a state. Or the fact that Israel was born and has existed in opposition, in constant danger of elimination - which has impeded a more free evolution one would otherwise expect. An such opposition has rendered many voices -e.g. Buber's-- that might otherwise have taken hold, moot --but that given the circumstances--it's completely understandable why they didn't. Vacuous comparisons to ' Western democracies' without context or perspective are merely attempts to smear not to illuminate.
