    what would happen if Professor Dershowitz from Harvard Law were speaking at the same event and prior to his speech gave an autographed work of his to Baruch Goldstein's widow with a profound hearfelt expression of empathy at her suffering, or if the esteemed Putin were visiting Israel and wanted to spesk at the same event but sent an autographed picture of his latest exploits in the country of Gerrgia to Ex President Katzav telling Katzav how much he admires him, because he a true "gever gever" and that he hopes he will be freed soon from his tormentors.

    from the article: Who is sick enough to censor Amos Oz?
