"selection"

who should live
and who should die
and who plays G-d

select those worthy
select those not

sent in different lines
given different foods
---or none

Did the American judicial system have the right to decide that Terri Schiavo's life wasn't worth continuing? Her struggle is over. I wonder if those who decided to deprive her of life-giving food struggled over the decision.

And this brings me to the political situation in Israel. Why should the seaside city of Tel Aviv, established by Jews when there wasn't even a Jewish state, be considered legitimate, when Yamit and Neve Dekalim, both established by the State of Israel, be something to be destroyed?

How does one select who should live and who should die? Who has the right to decide who should live and who should die? How can a state established to defend its people destroy them?

Israel has declared it illegal to compare government acts to the Nazis.
