Haiku Wednesday: Pillow Talk

with 2 comments

Silent hush fall deaf,
Still pillow confide with trust,
Awake after dawn.

+++

The drugs (hush) don’t work, they make me worse – o ye faithless one — who hit the snooze button 3 times today in the morning.

Alright, I’m still a non-believer of the secret sect of pillow-hush-alarm.

Maybe the older secret sect of pillow-talk-alarm works better, then again the idea is to get awake on time not to get asleep promptly.

on all those cheesy internet quotes about ‘soulmates’

liy: its selfish to expect so much of a soulmate
liy: i just think its a lot simpler than that
liy: the most amazing things are very simple anyway
the good eek: ahh. truth.
liy: they come into your life, force you to look at yourself, at life differently
liy: they don’t need to stay, settle in, kiss you and touch you all over till the day you die
liy: but you know you’ll never find someone like them again
liy: and if it takes 2 months or 10 years for them to turn everything around or change the way you see things, why would you cling on them to stay longer if they have to go
the good eek: i mean this completely as a compliment of the highest order, but you’re like yoda with better hair and skin
liy: -_-

Justifying Death of Innocents with Halakha (Jewish Law)

leave a comment »

Professor Geoffrey Alderman to Rabbi David J Goldberg:

The Halachah is crystal clear. It is entirely legitimate to kill a rodef – that is to say, one who endangers the life of another – and this is true, incidentally, even if the rodef has not yet actually taken another life. So the Judaism that I practise permits what is generally referred to as “pre-emptive” military action.

Rabbi David J Goldberg to Professor Geoffrey Alderman:

I have no argument with your explanation about the status of the rodef in Jewish law (the Halachah) and the permissibility of taking pre-emptive action against him, except to add that the biblical law should be viewed in the context of a desert society and blood feuds between individuals and clans. That is why I disagree with your contention that in the context of modern Gaza this can be extended to include every member and supporter of Hamas – about 1 million people according to the election results. Or would you advise every innocent civilian and child to wear a large placard visible to Israeli jets proclaiming “Don’t blame me, I voted for Fatah”?

[From Comment is Free: Geoffrey Alderman vs. David Goldberg, Can Israeli actions in Gaza be justified on the basis of Jewish scripture?]

One commentator said:

Makes me glad that I am an atheist and I know why this is wrong.
