Guest Letter Writer

My friend, Eve, also feels the need to write a letter to a newspaper and here's one sent to the Jerusalem Post today:-


How ironic that on the same day that Rabbi Weiss's article on the lack of perspective of what constitutes a dire problem ("Eliminate the Kiddush Clubs") appears, your lead editorial and a front page article highlight that very same lack of perspective.

The hue and cry over 110 year old Tel Aviv buildings ("Save Sarona") might be better applied to Ahab's palaces, Omri's city of Shomron, Herod's little Temple - all near Sanur in the [northern] Shomron, all slated to be handed to the PA in a few months to meet the fate of Joseph's Tomb. To say nothing of course of the Temple Mount where priceless historical artifacts are destroyed every day.

And yes, Alon Tal of the JNF, it IS a crime to build settlements on Nitzanim beach. Not just because of the havoc it wreaks on the land turtle habitat, but because the request comes due only to the planned travesty of transferring Jews from their homes in Gush Katif.

It may be Sunday morning, but after reading the paper I could use a drink.
