      If Good Enough for Animals, What About Humans?


      Arutz 7 web site reported that an animal rights group is protesting a planned sacrifice of a goat in educational preparation for the Paschal Sacrifice.

      I guess we all have feelings one way of the other about animals and specifically I recall this group, "Let the Animal Live".  They were very worried about all the stray dogs and cats left behind in Gush Katif and even got special permission to go in after the expulsion to collect them.  People weren't their concern. 

      They should care about how our Muslim neighbors slaughter:

                                                  

      So, rereading the report I wondered: maybe someone should take an example from their activism and present a suit against Ehud Olmert and Ehud Barak, among others, who are experimenting not with the lives of animlas but with the lives of human beings by capitulating to Condi Rice's demands which are placing Israeli lives at stake.  Our personal security is being threateneded.
