1) Henry Siegman is a real phenomenon. He is a true believer...in the deep-seated willingness of the Arabs (and Muslims, generally) to make peace with Israel. Nothing they say, nothing in the Qur'an and its attendant literature will deter him from his Orthodox belief that Muslims will (given the right amount of candy) forego all of their religious ideals in order make peace. Erev Pesah, 5766 he strikes again. (I don't get it. The man is part of a think-tank. Don't they read? Don't they think? Maybe the think is subsidiary to the tank.)
2) Even Allison Kaplan Sommer, whose blog I visit regularly and generally enjoy reading, has produced Hametz for the bonfire. I don't understand how an Anglo, who knows that intermarriage is a cancer on the body politic of the Jewish people, can write like this.
