Kindness That Isn't

by Akiva at Mystical Paths

"Israel is not indifferent to the suffering of the Palestinians", Ehud Olmert said in a joint press conference with George Bush in Washington.

...though they are indifferent to Jewish suffering. No, more than that, they ENJOY and REJOICE in Jewish suffering. For humiliating your enemy is perhaps even more important than beating him (in their cultural context).

Being kind and humanitarian to your enemy who isn't, isn't kindness. Wait, do I hear words of Koheles ringing?
