Propose flattery but not actually This MP3 (min 58-end) might shed some light, on both comments.

It sounds like one should 'propose flattery but not actually' so as to get the part of the person that needs improvement to listen up, whilst this doesn't condone flattering an evil person. In such a case can love be shown in another way?

Tricky. And what about walking a mile in that person's pocket before passing judgment, how is this to be interpreted?

Thank you Mendel K for the more than general look at this. Like the artist analogy as well. Yasher koach! Reply

Israel This commentary was very interesting. It confirms what we've known but many people deny especially Palestinians that Israel belongs to the Jews and was given to us by G-d. Reply

Proposing flattery to get people to listen is against the Torah Reply
