...there is no religious process or procedure for disinterment & reinterment at a new location?
No awareness or acknowledgment of previous inhabitants that the living go through to "kosher" the ground? Towns have been expanding for thousands of years. An event like this has never occurred before?
Do they need to be 100% certain that the dearly departed were Jewish before commencing such a procedure?
The monumental idiocy of even THINKING about committing TENS of MILLIONS of shekelim for such a fallacious project is mind boggling.
By distancing the ER, the increased danger to emergency care FOR THE LIVING was multiplied. What does the esteemed Rav have to say about this?
IMO, there had to be some kind of political leverage or advantage sought for such contradictory logic.
With all due respect to history, tradition, consecration of (supposedly) hallowed ground, & INTERPRETATION of religious law, Judaism is about life, constructiveness, & advancement, not foundering on the shoals of hair splitting paleontology of an unknown origin.
1. With all due respect to any & all "Gdolei HaDor", there are several, if not many, such acclaimed rabbis, just like there were various Gaonim scattered all over Europe a few hundred years ago. Not everyone is an adherent of a particular rabbi, &/or is obliged to follow all of his decisions;
2. I would much rather have concerned, knowledgeable, & interested people outside of Israel constructively contribute to the discussion, rather than have the perpetual stinking Israeli political miasma, machinations, & manipulations continue without any external perspective.
Would you prefer that the interested & connected worldwide abandon Israel to her own devices?;
Talkbacks & the Internet have probably contributed more to communications, democratisation of society, & dissemination of information than any other single invention since Gutenberg (another [probably] nefariously politically involved Jew!) invented moveable type;
3. BTW - Although I think it is irrelevant: yes, I have personal knowledge of, & experience with Barzilai Hospital.
