and thinks he can preach to the people with what little he knows to the people that know more,, but have some issues with their hubris. An intelligent person can usually figure out when thier opponent is really powerful and when they are putting up a front. The fact is that most Israelis are not as upset with the extremist Haredi leaders or thier pronouncements. They know how "powerful" they really are. Indeed, no matter how much money a person makes that is no sign they are "wise". Of course, Mr. Gold is Jewish, and the pious fools thet claim to know what is Jewish aren't "wiser". Truth be told it makes for an interesting newspaper to read how one erstwhiile Liberal Jew with a smattering of Jewish knowledge and Torah Scholars that imagine their Leaqring allows them to speak any way they please have at it. A genuinely intellecually honest person knows enough to have a "gut feeling" and admits there are things they don't know yet. On the Haredi side, there is an expression of regret that some people ought to hold back making statements until they know more about "the subject" Far too much ink, and breathe is wasted when people act out their ignorance, or, in turn express their hubris. Insead of excoriating the other side,, we have know to come together and see what we can learn from each other, as difficutt as it sounds.
