Responsibility Without Blame

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
I assume Minister of Internal Security Amir Ohana's words form after the Meron tragedy apply equally today.
Back then he said "I am responsible [for the tragedy] but responsibility does not mean blame." He said that to deflect calls for his resignation in light of the permits given by police, or at least allowing the event to go on, despite failures in compliance with safety codes.
The rioting in many cities, but especially in Lod where it might have been the worst, with shuls being destroyed and torched, private residences and businesses and cars being attacked, vandalized, people being attacked, stones thrown, people lynched, with the police mostly staying away and not putting down the uprising should really lead to the resignation of at least the minister in charge - being Minister Amir Ohana.
But I assume he would say now what he said then - sure, I am responsible, but that does not mean I am to blame.
