Crying for Haman

03/16/11 | by Nim [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

Jews celebrate Purim, remembering the Divine intervention, thwarting the evil plan of Haman to wipe out the Jews. They also rejoice at the reading of the story when Haman is hanged.
No outcry from the liberal camp??
Death penalty lobbyists, where were you??

You would have been with the supporters of Haman, executed on that historic day when the tables turned in the Jews favor.

Ha! that was different, no liberal would have sided with evil against the just Jews, who were loyal and law abiding citizens:roll:

The Jewish leaders at that time, were honest, dedicated to their people. Trusted implicitly by the Jews, because they had no ulterior motives. Their entire being was for the glory of G-d and the good of His chosen nation.

The book of Esther relates that she put her own life in danger to approach the king for the sake of her nation. When the king offered her half his kingdom, the offer was rejected out-of-hand and she pleaded for her people.

Contrast that with the following.

A report in Haaretz on March 8, 2011 claims that Kadima objects to new ethic’s code for members of the Knesset.
Among the 90 clauses protested by Kadima were;
• Fine a Knesset member who violates provisions of the new code.
• Reveal the names of contributors and the amounts they gave for financing MKs' legal and medical expenses.
• dock an MK's wages for up to a month for violating ethics rules.
• Keep MKs who violated the rules from attending the Knesset plenum and committees, and keep them from speaking, for six months - but the MKs would be allowed to vote. Kadima has proposed limiting the maximum banishment to only six days.
• Ban MKs from asking official questions and presenting certain motions for the remainder of a Knesset term.
• MKs would have to notify the Knesset speaker or committee chairpersons when they have a conflict of interest, and would need to request special permission to participate in a discussion or vote in such a case.
• MKs would also be required to use their budgets for maintaining contact with voters only for fulfilling their duties as MKs.
• Another dispute is over the proposed ban on accepting gifts - unless there is a reasonable explanation for the gift.
• MKs would be banned from providing any sponsorship for business related events if they are fully or partially funded by private interests - or to assist in publicizing such events.

Chutzpa used to be a description of a cheeky, mischievous action. When chutzpa is stretched to become stupidly arrogant and detrimental to other, it enters the realm of something outrageous.
