Biur Chametz BrilliancePosted: July 20, 2005
Biur Chametz analyzes Ariel Sharon's heavy-handed approach to the withdrawal. His basic theory is that Sharon is trying to make the Gaza withdrawal so painful as to preclude the possibility of a similar withdrawal from the West Bank. If that's true, then Sharon is a mad genius. But kudos to BC for thinking of that.
p.s. The title of his post is “Tearing for the purpose of mending” – a reference to Sabbath law which says that certain destructive acts (such as tearing) are forbidden if they are done for the purpose of facilitating a constructive act (like mending).
