@SudhamaRanganathan I'm not sure what you're trying to say here. Ar you equating the moral status of underground leaders such as Begin and Shamir with that of Bin Laden and Khaled Mashal? If you do, then you're not a student of history but merely cherry picking through the facts to make a point you had intended to make in the first place anyway.


The enormous difference between Shamir et al, who executed British officers (not that many, but it made an impression), and politicians -- and Islamist groups that target civilians directly, celebrating their demise, should be glaring to any person of the barest moral sensibility.

@catchmysoul2 - But that's the point. Someone of Streisand's stature just shouldn't do this shit.

@Geoff Short - That's not really up to us, is it? We all have highs and lows in our spiritual paths. But when a Jew marries out -- he or she deprive themselves in a clear and serious manner of the opportunity to come back.

Maybe that's why Ezra the Scribe made the Jews divorce their gentile wives when they came back to Jerusalem. To make sure they won't disappear.

@ChaiGuy53 - With all due respect, you know nothing about Islam, which is all about subjugation of the self to God. You are mixing historic phenomena detailed here with the religion itself which is the epitome of humility. Why do you think they bow down before God five times a day?

Couldn't have said it better myself. I often wonder how one can rise spiritually while considering himself or herself victims of anything, much less of some invented, demonic entity they hardly know or understand.

This article really frames the debate in a new way. I agree with everything, but it still makes me sad to think of the innocent women and children.

If the Americans now gave up the delusion of peace between Israel and the Palestinians, and concentrated on real American interests in the region, such as supporting the anti-terrorism forces, we could extract some stability out of this mess. But I doubt very much that this is an even remote possibility.

Why the cynicism? Why not write: Wow, there's an honest Jewish guy, let's help him! And if you just want to sit on your fat behind, then at least applaud him.
