    I made reference of this to Amira Hass's article the other day (of course, Haaretz didn't publish my post) which mentioned that the Palestinians in Ramallah were disappointed with President Obama's ongoings in Jerusalem and "closeness" to Israel. But he clearly reiterated the international community's concerns over the injustices of "occupation" and "deportations". So this cannot be glossed over. We're not over our humiliation as slaves in Egypt. Today at synagogue a visiting U.S. Rabbi from a mid-state told a story. His non-Jewish neighbour came over to his house and saw what a balagan (mess) his kitchen was is. The neighbour asked what was he doing? The Rabbi said we're preparing for celebrating Passover. The neighbour asked, what's that about? The Rabbi responds that it's a holiday about the Jewish slaves of Egypt fleeing the Phaorah. The neighbour dwells a bit about it and says " get over it ." Well the Rabbi states that we haven't got "over it" for 3,320 years! Of course the Rabbi tells the story much better than me, but that basically it.
