The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT & ANALYSIS -

Please ex­cuse me if I have lit­tle sym­pa­thy for Ortho­dox Jewish pris­on­ers and their lack of pro­vi­sions ( JC, Oct 9).

I care not a jot that they had no ap­ples to dip in their honey on Rosh Hashana, nor that they had to en­dure a few days of the same meal when new al­ter­na­tive de­liv­er­ies hadn’t ar­rived.

The “dis­as­ter” of no matzah for half of Pe­sach also didn’t trou­ble me un­duly.

Dis­as­ter used in this con­text is an in­sult to real world events trag­i­cally un­fold­ing around us.

Truly Ortho­dox peo­ple would not be in­car­cer­ated at her majesty’s plea­sure. These peo­ple were hid­ing be­hind the cloak of out­ward ob­ser­vance. Not the same at all. Fiona Phillips Lon­don NW8
