Quote For The Day

"The thought of giving a piece of our land to others is horrible. To those who talk about two states for two people I say: Sure, many states for many peoples, but not in in the Land of Israel. The Land of Israel is not intended to be a state for another people …" – Rabbi Haim Druckman, new recipient of one of the highest honors in Israel, the Israel Prize.

Previous recipients have included S. Y. Agnon, Golda Meir, Martin Buber, Naomi Shemer, Yad Vashem,  and the Israeli Philharmonic. This is not the Israel some people think they know.

Update: a reader notes that Druckman has also been accused of covering up child-abuse.
