  •  I barely know any Hebrew at all (1+ / 0-)

    but one thing I remember from my studies is that Hebrew verbs can be inflected (if that's the term) in many different ways. The same root verb (ahav) can be used to express different kinds of love, depending on the specific form that's used.

    I'm sure that Biblical and Talmudic scholars have been all over this one (err, so to speak) many times, so I'll leave it to others who've studied the original Hebrew to provide an interpretation.

    Let us all have the strength to see the humanity in our enemies, and the courage to let them see the humanity in ourselves.
