Silence on Israel Is Not Golden

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/opinion/article/silence_on_israel_is_not_golden_20030110

For Avi Davis, truth is a blazing light threatening to blind the unprepared. There are no moderating factors or gradations, just a division between those who can handle its assault and those who can't. In contrast to Davis' unitary absolutism, traditional Jewish wisdom tends to frame things in twos and threes. So we read in Pirke Avot 1:18, the teaching of Rabban Simeon ben Gamaliel, that "the world is established on three principles: truth, justice and peace."
