Atonement: Not in Israel's Vocabulary


Israel represses Palestinians viciously while it "atones."

by Stephen Lendman

Yom Kippur is considered the holiest of Jewish holidays. It occurs on the 10th day of the month of Tishrei (Hebrew year 5773). 

September 17 marked the new year (Rosh HaShanah). Ten days of repentance began. They culminated on Yom Kippur.

It's traditionally observed by 25 hours of fasting, prayers for forgiveness, and abstaining from work, school, and physical pleasures.

On September 25, Yom Kippur 2012 began at sundown. On September 26, it ended at sunset.

Atonement excludes penance for occupation harshness. Crimes of war and against humanity remain out of sight and mind. Few rabbis discuss them. Media scoundrels ignore them. Decades of Palestinian suffering go unmentioned. More on that below.
