I believe that by refusing to comment Safran inadvertently told the truth: (pundits call this a Kinsley gaffe) It think its obvious from Safran's tone deaf "no-comment" that he and the Agudah wish Kolko and his case would just go away. This is an abdication of responsibility, plain and simple, and it must be denounced from every street corner.
I've deleted the previous paragraph, including the linkto Shafran's letter, not because I think posting it was unethical- in fact I am certain that I did nothing wrong - but because I dont want to become the story. The villian here is Shafran, and he should be the focus of your ire. Not me.
