Just a couple words, mr. Rapoport. Your reasoning might sound flawless, but is based on an grave error. The Pope didn't imply, as you claim, agreement with the Byzantine Emperor. It was a citation. Nothing more than that. There is nothing violent per se in that quote. If we, cannot even quote in our theoretical lectures, historical documents freely, without fear of repraisals, threats and even death, then what does that show? Tolerance? Love? Grace? Mercy? What? Democracy is to be won every day, year in, year out. It cannot be won by making strategic decisions based on ignorance, like Rapoport does in this piece. Sometimes, the Israeli Left just seem to complicate it for the sake of it. Maybe the ill-conceived Lebanon adventure still looms in their dreams.
