Ruminations on Life, Orthodoxy, Israel and Academia
1. this is only haaretz' opinion, so does it really matter?2. which academic-type would you put on the list? which academic is well-known, or influential, on the israeli scene? [even yeshayahu leibowitz is no longer with us...]. [and the various rashei yeshiva are of little import outside their little world...]
The list includes about 90 businesspeople/bureaucrats, 5 politicians, and 1 rabbi (who is named neither Eliyashiv nor Yosef). Olmert is ranked #100 (although I think that's supposed to be a joke). That should tell you the list is representative of little more than the social circle the author travels in.
You mean you don't consider Yaakov Yisrael Ifergan (Rabbi "X-ray") a man of ideas or spirit? ;-)
