Word Power

A couple of things...

First David Landau is now former Editor-in Chief of Haaretz newspaper!

Could the kippah wearing journalist's dirty mouth be the cause of his job loss?

Second--

The "M" word.

Why does Yad Veshem refuse to use the word "murder" when saying how Jews died in the Holocaust?  Check the signs.  They all say that the Jews "perished," or in Hebrew, nispu.  That's the term used when an avalanche or flood, an act of G-d is the cause of human death.  Is anti-Semitism a natural condition?  an act of G-d?

Protest to Yad Veshem.  They never replied to my letters!
