    "I`m also glad to hear that "confessions under torture" is rejected as a means to prove a story. Just remember this when when you lend support to "civilized" governments that use torture to extract confessions. Guantanamo anyone?" Since I mentioned "confessions under torture" in my post, I'd like to reply to your contention, or assumption, that I somehow excuse the same at Guantanamo. First of all, "support" for such governments is not the same as accepting torture. There are many ways of supprting governments, and as a U.S. citizen, I have no choice but to do so, as I must pay taxes. That does not mean I stand behind all of my government's policies. Furthermore, I resent your assumption that someone, such as myself, that would come to the defense of Jews in general would necessarily condone the torture of detainees held in the "War on Terrorism". Why would you make such a connection?
