It was unfortunate that you mentioned Rabbi Schach's commenat abour "rabbits" since it belies an ingnorance of an anectotal reference that the rabbi made to his movement. Rambam offeres a story about Aristtole in which it is told he was absent for a while. his searched for him a long time and discovered he was in a side room tearing away at a live rabbit, eating it raw. The students were startled and asked him how he could do such a thing to which the philoospher replied, "When I give my lectures, I am Aristotle, here, I am not Aristotle>" Raabi Schach's point was that the Left often speaks in loftt terms in public forums, but when they are in their own "dated amot", they contractic themselves "sometimes". In political terms he was saying they were unreliable. For some reason, at the time, the Likud, was regarded as more trustworthy. That level of contraditicion occurs in all of us. Indeed, that Yetzer HaRa is there in abundance in Israeli society where it is easy make "allowances of extenuating circumstancws". In Halacically Observant sectors, breaches are handled more discretly, and if need be, unfortuanlly it does reach the courts. For some reason, among non-Halachically Obserevant sectors, moral and social infractions are judged on a relativeist scale. A Labor pol "embrancing", an assitsant FM taking money from the EU to promote their proposals, and other "oopses", don't get to the media, and if they do, it's long after the fact, and . . . it's easily forgiven. Yeah, "rabbits", Mr. Strenger.
