As One dimensional, as concrete, and as slogan-istic " revengeless" as possible! Who needs More?

Dear Mr. Daniel Wang (United States)

One dimensional thinking is an art!

Making only the most urgent concrete decision is another art.

Resorting to slogans about "revenge" is still another art!

Artists like that are all around these days!

Now using imagination to see the forthcoming probable dangers? It is stupid, isn't it? Who needs to think ahead? Why bother when artistry like that is the fashion?

As I wrote elsewhere:

Those who subsided to the pressure, please note the possibility, that tomorrow, or the day after, Terrorist Organizations/Countries, as ransom for releasing of one soldier (like Schalit), may demand from Israel to change the FLAG, the ANTHOM, the NAMES of CITIES, the National LANGUAGE, the IDENTITIY, the VALUES, the POLITICAL REGIME, the NEWS MEDIA and REPORTERS, the THEATER MANAGERS & WRITERS & ACTORS, the MANAGERS & TEACHERS OF SCHOOLS, the SUBJECT MATTER & RESEARCH & PROFESSORS in UNIVERSITIES & ACADEMY, … (please feel free to continue, so long that your freedom of thought still continues. This freedom of thought most probably is one of the earliest that would be demanded to expire!)

I tend to believe that none of these possibilities have crossed your artistic mind when you wrote:

" I would rather have one Jew rescued than 3000 in my prison. Forget the revenge factor- Baruch Hashem Mr. Shalit is back." As One dimensional, as concrete, and as slogan-istic " revengeless" as possible! Who needs More?
