    it seems you haven't been reading the news for the last 5 years or so. you clearly missed out on quite a few events. none of what he's said needs any proof; it's been in the news. where were you? i know that israel and those who support it prefer the to truth remain hidden, but why is it that when he has the courage to state the truth; you accuse him of displaying "a lack of affection" for his country, then label him a "traitor"? is he a traitor because you don't like facing the truth he writes? bottom line is that i've never read an article of his that doesn't reflect an inherent love for israel, much more so than you since he lives there. that he prefers not to see israel's existence compromised by the wrongs which you prefer to hide; makes him a patriot. it's those who'd close their eyes that are to be despised; not they who want israel to do what is right. the sin for which you condemn him is calling white white and black black; while you prefer that both be called gray!
