Letters To The Editor

Letters-logo

So we have three official Palestinian documents that clearly call for the elimination of Israel. Any Palestinian spokesman who refers to peace in exchange for Israel’s return to its 1967 borders is merely spouting propaganda with no substance in fact.

Contrasting the content of the three Palestinian documents that call for the elimination of Israel with the 1988 Israeli anti-racism law that prevents a political party from running for seats in the Knesset if it promotes racism (which in Israel means anti-Arab racism), one can see which side really wants peace.

Defending Haredi ‘Activism’

We constantly hear vehement criticism directed against haredi activists in Israel who refuse to passively accept the denigration of Torah and who back up their passion with action – holding loud and spirited demonstrations, standing up to the anti-religious police and army, attempting to see to it that women sit apart from men in buses, etc.

While I do not condone taking the law into one’s own hands, I refuse to indulge in political correctness. These young men obviously burn with the love of Torah. Their hearts are in the right place, even if they sometimes overreact in their determination to enforce the standards and morality of our holy Torah.
