Too Many Deaths

Yes, I admit that no number is acceptable. But tonight, as I checked the news on the internet, these were the headlines which shouted out to me:

2 cases of alleged murder on weekend
Four Israelis killed in plane crash
No eulogies for Ra'anana cop who killed family
Family, Friends Mourn Ozeri: Everyone Loved Him
28-year-old Eilat resident found dead; police suspect murder

Terrorism, accidents, murder and suicide.

Who was that old-time Zionist leader who yearned for a normal society, like all others, with Jewish crooks?

Easy for him to speak when he knew he'd be dead long before.

Shavua Tov!
What do you mean "long dead"? The "Saison" wasn't perpetrated by Jewish crooks?

Batya said...

He didn't see it like that.

Today, unfortunately, we do have the crimes and social problems like anywhere else, and even our sic leaders want to imitate other countries.

Shalom Batya!
Of course he didn't see it like that. He was one of the architects of the "Saison".
I never understood what he meant by that statement. Has there ever been a time when there haven't been Jewish criminals in the Land of Israel? Obviously when the population was sparse criminals were also few and far between and there were periods of time when even though the population was large the crime rate was extremely low. And, yes, unfortunately crime has been on the rise in the recent past, but how could he claim that the Jewish population in Israel wasn't always varied?

He never thought what he and his comrades did was immoral or crimminal. The Revisionists never countered asking Labor to do "cheshbon nefesh."
