No, Yaacov, you again miss my point but that?s nothing new when you wrap yourself in your self-inflated ego. I?m not commenting about the episode dealing with your aunt. This has nothing to do with her or your donation to the order she empathized with. That was a big deal for others, not me. This does have to do with your inability to deal with the Jewish people. There is a trend in your commentary toward Jews?all negative. We?re either fanatics, zelots, racists, bigots, or your latest, stiff necked people. We?re the one?s who need soul searching. Gee thanks again, you show an inability to have any meaningful connection with Jews. Go put on your own sack-cloth and ashes. I for one am not going to apologize to the world that we?re still living. Your previous comments about how the Jewish people are a burden to bear says much about your thinking and how its something you have to overcome, as if we?re a plague and exist only to interfere with your attempts to commune with the divine. For a solitary communion with God, you don?t need a people, you need solitude, which is what monks prefer. Exchange hermit for monk if such an example so offends your delicate sensibilities. When you?re not labeling us as extremists, we?re tourists. You label Jewish nationalism as crass and arrogance. In that, you echo Khalid?s argument. Jews don?t deserve a nation. Such philosophies are only deserved for others. Same thing for the sanctity of our religion and holy sites. Khalid was blunt about it. Jerusalem is the heart. He?s willing to kill for it. He?s willing to die for it. Others, like Azzam and Ibrihim pointedly state how central al-Aqsa is to them. But for you, we don?t have that right. We?re ?tourists? as you so blithely put it. Holy of of Holies? Sorry, do not pass go. Our dreams. Our desires. Our history. Our homeland. All this, is arrogance to you. Shameful conduct.
