The Fast of Gedaliah
Yesterday (September 29 or Tishri 3), I observed the Fast of Gedaliah, a fast in honor of Gedaliah and in dishonor of his assassins. Gedaliah was appointed governor of Judea after the Babylonian conquest. He was assassinated by the same type of nationalist bonehead who today blow up buses in Israel and NGO facilities in Iraq.
In other words, Jews have a solid precedent for calling those alleged “freedom fighters” terrorists.
