In this book, David Patterson sets out to describe why Jews must live - but especially think - in a way that is distinctly Jewish. For Patterson, the primary responsibility of post-Holocaust Jewish thought is to avoid thinking in the same categories that led to the attempted extermination of the Jewish people. The Nazis, he says, were not anti- Semitic because they were racists; they were racists because they were anti-Semitic, and their anti-Semitism was furthered by a Western ontological tradition that made God irrelevant by placing the thinking ego at the center of being.If the Jewish people, in their particularity, are 'chosen' to attest to the universal 'chosenness' of every human being, then each human being is singled out to assume an absolute responsibility to and for all human beings. And that, Patterson says, is why the anti-Semite hates the Jew: because the very presence of the Jew robs him of his ego and serves as a constant reminder that we are all forever in debt, and that redemption is always yet to be. Thus the Nazis, before they killed Jewish bodies, were compelled to murder Jewish souls through the degradations of the Shoah.But why is the need for a revitalized Jewish thought so urgent today? It is not only because modern Jewish thought, hoping to accommodate itself to rational idealism, is thereby obliged to put itself in league with postmodernists who 'preach tolerance for everything except biblically based religion, beginning with Judaism', and who effectively call on Jews, as fellow 'citizens of the global village', to disappear. It is also because without the Jewish reality of Jerusalem, there is only the Jewish abstraction of Auschwitz, for in Auschwitz the Jews were murdered not as husbands and wives, parents and children, but as efficiently numbered units.If the Jews, Patterson claims, are not a people set apart by 'a Voice that is other than human', then the Holocaust can never be understood as evil rather than simply immoral. With "Open Wounds", Patterson aims to make possible a religious response to the Holocaust. Post-Holocaust Jewish thinking, confronting the work of healing the world - of tikkun haolam - must recover not just Jewish tradition but also the category of the holy in human beings' thinking about humanity.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Excerpt from U. S. Policy Toward Vietnam: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on East Asian and Pacific Affairs of the Committee on Foreign Relations, United States Senate, One Hundred Third Congress, First Session, July 21, 1993 The subcommittee met, pursuant to notice, at 10:08 a.m., in room SD-419, Dirksen Senate Office Building, Hon. Charles S. Robb (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding. Present: Senators Robb, Kerry, Feingold, Mathews, Murkowski, Lugar, and Pressler. Also Present: Senator Kerrey. Senator Robb. The committee will come to order. This morning the East Asian and Pacific Affairs Subcommittee is pleased to hear the views of fellow Senators, veterans, policymakers, relatives of missing servicemen, U.S. businesses, and Vietnamese Americans. All have a valuable contribution to make as we begin to plant the seeds of a new relationship with Vietnam. In 1993 the last wounds of the Vietnam war appear to be healing. Progress on the POW/MIA issue, once defined in years, now moves forward almost daily. The President's decision 3 weeks ago to allow Vietnam to clear its arrears at the IMF and eventually receive international loans marks the beginning of Vietnam's reintegration into the community of nations. Coming to closure on the POW/MIA question now is the sole remaining impediment to our starting anew with Vietnam and laying the war to rest. The Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs, of which I was a member, examined this issue in excruciating detail last year. I credit our first witness this morning, Senator John Kerry, for his painstaking effort as chairman of that committee in running down every lead to insure that the U.S. Government was meeting its obligation to determine the fate of our POW's and MIA's. Briefly, let me frame the issues as I see them today. First, what constitutes the, "fullest possible accounting of missing American servicemen in Southeast Asia?" The Joint Task Force Full Accounting has described a number of areas where we have concerns about POW's and MIA's, but at issue is how much blood can we get from a stone? General Vessey notes that it could take decades to retrieve every shred of evidence and artifact. Short of that, when will we have the confidence to proceed with normal relations assured that we have fulfilled our obligation to determine, as best we can, the fate of American servicemen who are missing?
