Quote of the Day

by Lurker

Today, in a joint session of the Knesset Foreign Affairs/Defense and Education committees on the topic of refusal of military orders:

Retired Supreme Court Deputy Chief Justice Mishael "the Chopper" Heshin: "Refusal of a demolition order destroys the army... If the 'black flag of illegality' waves over an order, then it must not be fulfilled. But the State did not wave such a flag over participation in the outer rings of a [demolition-and-expulsion] operation…

[Lurker comments: Perhaps the IDF can clear up all the confusion by distributing photographs of the infamous "black flag of illegality" to all soldiers, so that they should know exactly what it looks like for future reference.]

Heshin: Personal refusal is one thing, but refusal of an entire sector is a contagious disease. It leads to the minority taking control over the larger group."

MK Yaakov "Ketzaleh" Katz: "You mean like in the Supreme Court."

This blog should really replace "Wherever I am, my blog turns toward Eretz Yisrael" with "Two wrongs DO make a right".

Why Shlomo, what a surprise to hear from you! We thought you had disappeared.

We're still all anxiously waiting for you to back up your bizarre claim that JoeSettler's post says "the right should be allowed to violently incite against the police/IDF", by showing us where the post says this or anything like it.

You made the charge, are you completely incapable of backing it up?

Did you just simply fabricate the statement based on absolutely nothing?

We're waiting...

Ketzaleh, I like your sense of humor!

That is one of the best one liners I've ever read delivered in politics. The truth hurts, doesn't it?

I was equally surprised by Shlomo's comments in the prior post. I thought I had missed something, or that the original post has been edited. Don't think you're going to be able to come back without an explanation.
