Profile Information

That isn't particularly noteworthy. 

However, you might want to have a look at the front…


A few (Hah!) comments about Israel and antisemitism

Posted on February 11, 2017 at 4:35pm 15 Comments

Being as the topic of Israel and antisemitism has come up on the site lately, I thought I'd clarify a few things.

Israel is a political entity with bad leadership that does a lot of bad things. The settlements are an obvious obstacle to peace. The fact that Israeli leadership is not working as hard as they can to get to a two state solution is both immoral and ultimately suicidal. The simple, immutable reality there is that there are two major populations living there, neither… Continue
