    I wonder whether they should give the test they gave Teitel to people like those who careered around Jerusalem yesterday with a tape of shofar blasts and a jumbo-decibel message that the next Prime Minister of Israel would be the Mashiah. Assessing loonies BEFORE they do anything nuts would be more useful that waiting for them to murder and maim before bothering with them. I suggest they start with the settler squatters of Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan, who have turned families out onto the streets in order to indulge their fantasies. Then continue to the illegal outposts that have been there for about a dozen years now without successfully being dismantled and give their residents the psychiatric once-over too. So Teitel will spend the rest of his life in a medical facility without hanina? Or will he miraculously recover at some point and be allowed to go back to his illegal outpost to join his family?
