Art Must Not be Immoral
Israel's ambassador to Sweden broke the diplomatic and
artistic rules. In response to a work of art that consists of
a photo of a smiling woman who murdered 22 people in a
restaurant in Haifa, floating in a large pool of what is
intended to represent Jewish blood, Zvi Mazel did not suffice
with a polite diplomatic protest -- however strongly-worded --
but he actually ripped out some of the wires and tossed a
spotlight into the basin.
How to Cope with Suicidal Frogs
One of the most fundamental traits of all earthly creatures
is the survival instinct. Every creature yearns to survive
and devotes its full attention to the battle for existence it
is forced to wage against all perils that pose a threat to
its well-being. All living creatures have this trait in
common: animals, beasts, birds, creatures that creep on the
earth, and of course humans.

and anecdotes from gedolei hador as well as a
collection of sheilos utshuvos on topical matters.
Ariel Sharon is looking worried. Very worried. David Spector,
the videotape man, destroyed his tranquility. In his worst
nightmares Sharon did not believe a man who had been so close
to him, practically a member of the family, would go public
with tapes incriminating him and pointing to his involvement
in the various funding transfers, contradicting Sharon's
claim that everything was carried out by his sons.
