It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Whose Brain Is Bigger?

I was listening to a podcast of the Tovia Singer show the other day, and he made an excellent point. A mouse, which has a brain maybe the size of a pumpkin seed, or cashew, can figure out which of two buttons delivers a mild electrical shock, and which one delivers food.

I've seen documentaries on these kinds of experiments before. The mouse can usually figure this out in about three attempts or so. It doesn't take very long. An Israeli politician, on the other hand, cannot seem to figure this out with "land for peace." After Israel gave up the Sinai...twice, surrendered administration of the Temple Mount to the Waqf, and withdrew from southern Lebanon, and Gaza, with the end results being no peace, and more dead Jews, Israeli politicians can't seem to figure out that this plan does not work.

If an animal with a cashew sized brain could figure out that you stop doing something that is not good for you in favor of something that is, but an Israeli politician can't, then how small must Ehud Barak and Bibi's brains be? I'm thinking something along the lines of a poppy seed.

And that would be about the size of Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch's brain, who made a statement the other day that he will not be soft on Yesha Jews who protest the freeze and break the law in doing so. How very nice. And the Arabs occupying Judea and Samaria that are building illegally every day, they're fine. Maybe I should get a mouse and run it against Netanyahu.

Singer had another great idea. Instead of giving Hamas 1000 terrorists in exchange for Gilad Schalit, Israel should put all the terrorists on their list into a helicopter, and hover it over Gaza City. Then we push a terrorist out every hour until Gilad is released alive. Works for me.
