Return to Sender

No wonder those “human rights” groups never condemn the spilling of innocent Israeli blood. They have more pressing issues to address, like why the heck G-d’s mail is being opened.

An Israeli human rights group accused the national postal authority of violation of privacy for having published letters addressed to God on its web site.

Letters without a postal address are generally returned to the sender but those addressed to God are often taken by a postal official to Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall, the holiest site in Judaism and where worshippers traditionally deposit prayers.

“It’s a violation of basic privacy laws, whether the senders sincerely thought the letters would reach their destinations or not,” Yoav Loeff, spokesman for the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), told AFP.

The rights watchdog, in a letter of complaint to the postal authority, charged that although the names of the senders were removed from the web site, the personal nature of the contents could reveal their identity.
