Memory is liquid, we as a people, have made it as solid as possible. Because we mourn our loved ones who were murdered in the Holocaust. Because we remember and uphold life. Antisemitism is sewage, toxic liquid. It compulsively seeks to erode, to dilute, to dissolve in its swamp of hatred, everything that is decent and holy. Cynicism is liquid too, as is relativization, hipetrophia and hipotrophia of history. Goldstone is acid bias, trying to bind Israel's arms so that it cannot defend itself against the current Islamist and most unscrupulous, devilish terrorism. Using the Holocaust is evil. And were Netanyahu to mention it, he is already in quicksand. were he to avoid mentioning it, he is in quicksand too. The ethics of memory is the respect for facts. That's why the alusion to the tattooed numbers in the survivors' arms. The attempt of us Jews not to be swamped, eroded, burnt with acid or thrown into the sea. We arrived by sea to HAARETZ: THE LAND.
