    Hi Mr. Ben Avraham: I completely agree with you that public beheadings are evil. Executions should always be done in private. That's the civilized way. And cutting off people's heads? One swift swipe of the sword and the head is detached from the body and death is instantaneous? Barbaric! The proper way to execute people is the way we do it: force the prisoner to inhale gas (much pioneering research on that technique was done in Germany and Poland in the last century), or fry them in electric chairs, or inject poison into their veins, strapped down on gurneys so they can't pull out the tubes as they writhe when the poison reaches their hearts and/or brains. That's the civilized way. Those Arabs are barbarians.

Why this liberal Zionist now supports BDS

Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
