Moral Clarity

Arnon Sofer, a Jewish Israeli intellectual, teaches (!) at Haifa University:

When 2.5 million [Palestinians] live in a closed-off Gaza, those people will become even bigger animals than they are today, with the aid of an insane fundamentalist Islam. So, if we want to remain alive, we will have to kill and kill and kill. All day, every day. If we don't kill, we will cease to exist. The only thing that concerns me is how to ensure that the [Jewish] boys and men who are going to have to do the
killing will be able to return home to their families and be normal human beings. (
