    The author brings some valid points that all sides must watch their verbeage not be offensive. however , while not condoning self action the crematoria in itself due to our history is offensice to many haredim, religous and secular. The new reform Judaism siddur will now include a reinstatement of the blessing Mechaye Hamesim--(taken out many years ago) Cremation is the antihesis to this . blessing and mocks it. All these years the secular were screaing the "religous don't go to the army -the parasites.!!" Now over 50% of the officers and 40% soldiers are religous. What do people like the author scream (while the secular are looking to avoid service)"too many yarmulkes!!" We must learn to respect, unite, and love the individuality of every Jew and not impose on each other except when infringing on the other. Otherwise,we are doomed like the second temple sinat chinam,,
