First of all, building bomb shelters is a good thing, especially in connection with a hospital. Whether you are pro-Palestinian or pro-Israeli (or both), a bomb shelter can never be seen as an offensive thing, it is just to protect civilians. Secondly, does it matter which religion the people who are buried there had? Isn't it discriminatory to say that we will dig if it is one religion but not the other? I am Christian and you can happily dig up my Christian forefathers if it will provide safety for people who live now. These people were buried ages ago, no-one goes to their graves, noone misses them. Who cares? I would hope the Israeli state would take the same approach to Jewish remains. These Haredi are nutters and I don't know why a secular Israeli feels (s)he has more in common with them than with secular Palestinians. Extremists ultra-orthodox Jews, especially those in settlements, are what is bringing Israel down right now. The state of Israel needs to stop pampering them, not to please international opinion, but to do justice to the million of secular Jews (and Israeli Arabs) in Israel who suffer the consequences of this minority's actions.
Russian PM warns of "new world war" if Syria negotiations fail (Reuters)
We leftists whine and complain, we only talk about how bleak and hopeless life is in Israel. We alienate all those Israelis whose support we need to bring political change.21:35 11.02.16 | 0 comments
