Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 10 comments
This is a very interesting story; however the article has more holes than fishing net. Firstly the author clearly states: "All of these things aroused the anger of the ultra-Orthodox - particularly two of them: Orenstein and Bernstein, very wealthy men who made their money from the tax-collection system, among other things" And in the next line he says it was a political assassination. HUH?!?! He CLEARLY outlines this as a money motive! Is it just me or what?!? Ok so even if this was on the influence of the rabbi's who disapproved of the maskil's views. Where do politics come in? It would be a religious dispute... Somehow the author feels the need to mention murdered Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin in the same story as a supposed religious murder based on the fact that amir acted on religious beliefs? 150 years means nothing of course... after all the 2 murders somwhow stem from some skewd rabbinical path does it?
