  1. Ehy this can’t be accomplished through negotiations behooves me! Isn’t this the immature way of handling things! “If you give me what I want, I’m not playing!” It just seems like snipping one’s nose to spite one’s face!

  3. Why this can’t be accomplished through negotiations behooves me! Isn’t this the immature way of handling things! “If you don’t give me what I want, I’m not playing!” It just seems like snipping one’s nose to spite one’s face! All Jews will lose out at the end of the day. Minister Litzman is a sense of reality and a real accomplisher!
