    When the hungry steal it is not the same as when those who have plenty to eat steal. When the homeless build themselves a new refuge and are robbed of it by people who have already got not only a refuge, but a state and an army to defend it, religious people like you should have many, many questions. But for some reason, you only have the kind of answers you spew. Let the Palestinians whose houses you now live in return to them because they have the key and the deed and you will have the right to "return" to houses held by you before 1948. Separate criteria, one for the Arab and one for the Jew, is what your so-called legal justification is based on. It's immoral. Apply your justification it across the board and you'll be heard. So choose. Either stay in your house and leave the refugees be, or allow everyone who was made homeless by war to have their home back.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
