The 'Cultured' Left

Just yesterday, the media firestormed the pronouncement of Attorney-General Menni Mazuz that it has not been proven that incitement was a direct cause of the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin.

They berated him for daring to assume that words cannot kill because without this basis, they have no case against the Right in a collective sense.

So, how does the Left write and use words?

Try this, from Yoel Marcus, senior columnist and editorial board member of Haaretz:-

Israel was attacked twice within the space of 72 hours. First by a Jewish terrorist who shot four passengers to death on a bus in Shfaram and then by Benjamin Netanyahu, who suddenly resigned as the cabinet met to put their John Hancock on the first stage of the pullout. Both attacks had the same motivation - to sabotage the disengagement. But it is doubtful that either the military misfit who became a murderer or the smart, sharp-tongued politician will achieve their goal.
