Henry Siegman – Israel Greatest Loss: Its Moral Imagination

First Circulated:  2010/06/14

In an article published by Haaretz, Henry Siegman examines what he calls Israel greatest Loss: its moral imagination.  I thought some of you might find this article interesting.

Excerpt:
“So, yes, there is reason for Israelis, and for Jews generally, to think long and hard about the dark Hitler era at this particular time. For the significance of the Gaza Flotilla incident lies not in the questions raised about violations of international law on the high seas, or even about ‘who assaulted who’ first on the Turkish ship, the Mavi Marmara, but in the larger questions raised about our common human condition by Israel’s occupation policies and its devastation of Gaza’s civilian population.”
