Hm, interesting

B"H

The short talkback: I don’t like mounted police in riot gear against religious Jews. Looks like a pogrom.

The long talkback: isn't it interesting that the J.em police suddenly has manpower to do this to the religious? When it was to enforce the court order to escort out the Arab squatters from Mr. Herskovitz's property, after 16 years of legal proceedings, they said they can't do it because they don't have the manpower. Funny country this, of law and order. Ah yeah, and of democracy.

i think most of hardcore religious Jews are in fact no better than islamic extremists and should be watched carefully.

It seems "Anonymous", that you are incapable or unwilling to distinguish between good and evil, between us and them. However, don't worry, I am as carefully watched as they can afford.

maybe, but can you define 'bad' and 'evil' and tell me why is it so? Those terms are quite relative and subjective, don't you think so?

You are of course plugging in to one of humanity's oldest of questions: what is truth? I don't have time for that. Why? Because it is obvious that truth exists and that it is objective. There is truth! So, the real question is its recognition, which is subjective. For the Muslim Muhammad is true and the Koran is holy. For a Jew Muhammad is a pig and the Koran is a lie and Hashem is true and the Torah is holy. Does it mean that truth is relative? No. It means that its recognition is relative and if you are a Jew and you don't recognize the Jewish truth than can you be considered a Jew? You say "who cares". I say I do. So, the short answer to your question is that if you are not a Jew, good and evil are all very relative and at the end of the day it is your free choice to live like a Jew, in which case good and evil are well defined. The only thing you can't possibly tell me that I'm just like my worst enemy: I am not! That would imply that there is no truth.
