A Private Tragedy

This weekend in Ha'Aretz, a moving and very interesting interview with Motti Fogel, the brother of Udi Fogel, who was murdered together with his wife and three of their children in Itamar about a week ago. Two of the most relevant and memorable quotes from the article:
  • "The settlers, in quotation marks, are first of all human beings. It sounds very dumb to say this, but they have private lives, and it was important for them to have a private element at the funeral."
  • "...when we see a fire burning, let's not presume who lit it. Maybe we will be better off making an effort to put it out."
