    Though I cannot condon Cohen' statement, which ought to be brought to some investigative forum, I disagree completely with the pfof. assertion that "statementincredulous shock at a total lack oh HUMANESS and CIVILISATION" and these words are from an erudit man who in one swoop of a breath remind us of Main=monides to Levinas as "believers in LIBERAL DEMOCRACY" can be tolerant of people like Cohen. Yes, I don't know whether the good teacher read about RABA, the great Moroccan Chief Rabbi in the 19th century Rome: Rabbi Elisha Ben Hamozeg, had to fight with the Jews of Europe who considered Liberal unrestrain as antithesis to Judaism. In our days, Gideon Levy and some of his feature writer friends have made anyone who is not following their anti-Zionist anti-human position when it comes to the very existence of Israel. I am afraid that we are crossing a line when anything that is said in a a discussion by Olmert, Mazzuz, Mofaz or the "great" white saviour Barak has to be disected and delivered as a statement that will change the nature of Israel democracy: it was Strenger's opportunity to tell us what he thinks of Sephardim and other people who have different ideas, as horrible as they might be, but the value of whitch is less harmful that what some writers with wider access have been saying. Now, Strenger read once more the discussion between Jaques Derrida and Emmanuel Levinas. You might think differently about attitude and statement of a so-called political representative.
