West Bank of the Willamette

Right-wing activist (left) Baruch Marzel enjoys a hearty Purim joke with comrades in 2015.

As the world becomes more concerned with justice, and individuals have the capacity to film violence with their phones, I’d like to think this is a recipe for societal improvement.

So far things are not playing out that way. Now the trial of the cop who murdered George Floyd is going on. Each day of the trial has seen a police shooting in the US, over 50% of the victims being Black or Hispanic.

The polarization of society keeps getting deeper.

I keep wondering if Israel is the harbinger of things to come and/or a cautionary tale.
