David Landau, former editor of Haaretz, has been visiting our fair shores on behalf of the New Israel Fund.
Although Landau’s interviewers don’t seem to have asked him about it, the Agean Stables website provides a reminder of Landau’s immortal and disgraceful “rape” line from a while back. It’s also a good opportunity to examine the “masochistic omnipotence syndrome” which inspires some Jews to lay any and all blame for the failure of the peace process at Israel’s door. Mea Culpa indeed.
Landau’s line reminds me of that disgraceful cricketing moment 30 years ago that Greg Chappell continues to be reminded of.
