    Pfeffer displays not only his wild hostility towards religious beliefs and moral systems but also his remarkable ignorance of Jewish law and philosophy. His comparisons are as invalid as apples and... elephants. In those rare situations where Jewish and civil law conflict, Jewish law holds that it must prevail. Not surprisingly, civil law claims that IT must prevail. (That's why it's called a "conflict"...) In a secularist Israel where govt policies have a long history going back to Ben Gurion of trying to annihilate religion so as to create a "new Jew" free from the traditions of the past, religion has learned to be defensive. The best defense is a good offense. Perhaps it's about time that the Rabbis started summoning the various anti-religious political, academic and cultural figures to "investigate" their incompetent or just plain anti-Jewishness instead of the Israeli Thought Police investigating innocent Rabbis. It's about time.
