David Hartman's statement I at first agreed with: "You cannot have a moral argument without power." Then, when he mentioned the Palestinians, I assumed he was referring to them as the powerless people who are not compelled to engage in a moral argument without power. But then he put the Israelis in the hypothetical "powerless" role. He exhibited appalling blindness to his own hypocrisy, and I was very disappointed that you missed it, or let it slide. Hartman needs to be challenged on this, and in resolving it, bring this awareness to his own people, as he has done on many vital issues.
