"Jews only petitions are about the fact that Israel claims to speak in the name of the Jews. Some Jews want to oppose this in Jewish terms."
You are a typical duplicated type, so keep on explaining...
Do those Jews LIVE in Israel, this is a political and internal affair of the state, that has application on it's future.
if this was a philosophical or a religious statement, well then you can raise your voice and say, as the reforms, you don't represent me I think different.
But in this case, you sit and live in your country, you are a total stranger to Israel and tell me what to do, just because you are from the same religion.
It has only to do with the issue, that you think, that the world will read your letters in a different way because you , when it fits you, say I belong to the tribe I am Jewish, so everything concerning Israel, has a bigger impact because I am Jewish.
You are not Israelis, you are strangers for me you are like any other Swedish, or Spanish, or Argentinian and you words means nothing more then any other person.
MW as always is so out of context.
as usual the AntiZio trolls, had the opportunity to compare Israel to their beloved Nazi Germany, as they are used to get their daily fuel from the articles.
The debate in Israel regarding this issue is completely not political, but more regarding the freedom of speech.
While Adam Verete is considered as the Hero by some political streams (he could be from the right wing or the left wing, but this is completely not relevant ), he was not fired and there was never any intention to fire him by the ministry of education,
but on the contrary, The main hero in this case is really Sapphire Sabah . Her complaint focused not only that "the IDF is unethical ." or " country " , but had focused on thesis of shutting up people .
Sapphire 's complaint was and is reserved to the issue that a class should be aloud to Listen to ALL spectrum of opinions from extreme right to extreme left. In fact, according to her testimony , Adam Verete kept her mouth shut in an abusive way. at list Adam Verete had the dignity to apologized for his behavior .
meaning he behaved in an anti - Democrat way and became a hero of freedom of expression ?!?! . It's not exceptional in some quarters on those who push for freedom of speech, use it as a shelter when they are the once that are shutting up people.
Sapir Sabah had a lot more courage to get out against her teacher , she was not fighting for her political views , but the right to attend school without teacher who try to wash her brain no matter what political side they hold.
I am proud of my Israeli society, that raises up issues like that, that shows how open , democratic, pluralist and rational our society is.
ira glunt, to cut and paste articles from news papers is not journalism, its a parrot intelligence (I hope Parrots will excuse if I abused them).
