Those outside the orthodox Jewish world, and sometimes even those inside, often wonder why we spend so much time analyzing the Torah and Talmud in such depth. For those involved in the American financial markets in the past, my answer is (l'havdil) "Alan Greenspan". For those who don't get that or aren't market followers...
(via Israpundit) Jack Wheeler, former advisor to President Reagan, advises that Condi and the State Department are cowards and aren’t prepared to upset anybody except the Israelis. He guestimates that Bush will order a strike against Iran after Nov 4/08. He also noted that Bush mentioned the Peace process not once in the Knesset and thinks that is significant.
In politics and other significant negotiations, we pay close attention to every facet of every detail to gain our best understanding of the situation. Did the King glance our way, did the President nod silently to the comment, did the Secretary not repeat a position she normally does?
How much more so when we are reading the Press Releases of the King of Kings?
