A Sad Week

“It is one thing to point out – rightly – human suffering. But you cannot be neutral between liberal democracy and authoritarian coercion, between respect for human life and contempt for life, between dignity and cruelty, between self-defense and terror. To confuse democracies with autocracies, to confuse terrorists with their victims, is a moral disease.“ Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch responds to recent events by the Gaza border.
