Yes, gotcha on that, you're probably right to an extent, FL would likely have allowed hers, and disallowed yours ... there is always a cultural slant of some sort, probably, we are human beings, after all ... it is better to get both questions out in print imho, because they get asked all the time, they are not really questions, and should be refuted

Other questions too ... there's a surprising one this morning, about 1956 ... seems odd to see it from the questioner, because her side doesn't come off too well there, it was a clear case of attempted conquest of another people's land ... but, got to go soon ... what a black hole for time it is play internet, eh

Stumbled on this post searching for Aristide (FL and his buddies don't lose much sleep over that American atrocity):

Chomsky is obviously just one of the "lobby". Liberal to a fault, for the victims and oppressed everywhere, until you start talking about Israel.

I don't think any commentator is perfect, including Chomsky and myself. But one can't seriously say he is not for the victims and oppressed in Israel.

There is NOT ONE American who has done more in the last 30 years to vividly detail the brutalities brought against the Palestinians. Furthermore, his clinical dissection of the Israeli justifications for those brutalities is as vehement and unrestrained as can be.
