Wearing white

2 shevat 5777 HAnoch Ne’eman Jerusalem

My friend told me that the woman who lost in the American Presidential election two months ago attended the inauguration. He said she wore white to express her solidarity with the Suffering Women’s Movement. Well that’s nice, but I couldn’t help thinking that if she had won, there would be not only a lot of women suffering, but a lot of men too. Certainly a lot of both men and women here in Israel would have been suffering because of her.

Perhaps if she really wants to help alleviate suffering, she should have gone into nursing or medicine, not politics. Then she could have worn white every day (though maybe not Ralph Lauren), and really helped people.

Like the old Indian chief used to say, “Beware of wolves dressed like sheep”.
