An Australian TV broadcaster rejected complaints from Jewish groups that a controversial series "endorses and reinforces demeaning stereotypes about Jews."
Yesterday, Glenn Beck and the leadership of Fox News made a mockery of their commitment to me and two rabbis. Let me take a few steps back to tell you why what happened yesterday scares me.
The first thingItzhak Frankenthal did after his son's murder was exact threepromises from his wife. First, he said, the couple would not blameGod. Second, they would thank God for at least allowing them to havetheir son's remains to bury. Many Israeli families never receive thebodies of their loved ones killed by war or, in Arik Frankenthal'scase, by terrorists. Lastly, Frankenthal made his wife promise thattheir life without Arik would go on. After sitting shiva, Frankenthal walked intohis children's room, turned on the TV, and told them that they mustgo back to doing normal things.
