Sleepless nights

Now, I am not suggesting that John Demjanjuk should not be on trial. Indeed, I believe that it is morally right that any man who might have committed war crimes be tried and, if found guilty, convicted for those crimes. Indeed, I would go so far as to agree with Rabbi Marvin Hier, the Dean of the Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, when he says: "We should not make the mistake of thinking that a case against one war criminal is a case against just one man, when the bell tolls for John Demjanjuk, it is also tolling for every other war criminal. Even if it just gives them sleepless nights."

Of course, coming from the Rabbi this is pathetic pathos, verbal diarrhea or, to put it quite simply, the Rabbi is full of shit. For it to be otherwise he would be have to be wishing half of the population back in his "Geistige Heimat", at the very least, insomnia, and somehow, I don't think he does. Over to you Rabbi and maybe you would like to qualify your statement.
