    Lectures on Jewish Liberalism from Tivon? You're good at the agression Mr Tivon but not at the reality. Peace Now admitted that its figures were subject to military and thence state release of accurate figures and have openly and honestly revised them and had to go to court to get them. That's Israeli/Jewish liberalism? What admissions are you prepared to make Mr Tivon? There is a price for saying that we are a liberal democracy and that is to maintain an openness even if we don't like the consequences. Peace Now is an example of that honesty, one of the sadly too few in our country today. And whilst I think that Paulo exagerates with the word 'genocide', and ought to withdraw it, some of the other hysterical comments made whenever Peace Now is featured should also be withdrawn.
