This is your chance to voice your opinion. We've chosen a controversial / interesting entry that appeared on our site (talkback, blog, etc...) and we want to know what you have to say about it. TODAY'S HOT POTATO: Taken from article: Itzik: Demolish terrorist's house Talkback #: 12 Talkbacker: Hadas, Israel Text: Israel is a democracy. Those who say 'destroy the mourning tent of the yeshiva terrorist' need to understand that there is no law against it. East Jerusalem is in Israeli controlled territory and the law applies to this area too. Want to change it? Send letters to MKs, ask them to submit bill in that effect. If it passes and becomes a law, I would be the first to support such a move. That's the way it works in a democracy. You cannot have it both ways. Unless, you don't really want a democracy. What do you think? The ball is in your court now. Click here to respond Previous Hot Potatos
