    And this must be said to you and TT etc.& all on this talkback who have absolutley no problem with attributing things to me that I have never stated or implied. Notice how jacob blues accuses me of "universally disparaging Jews",that the concerns of Jews are beneath me. This is not only groundless,it's slanderous.I find the occupation destestable,I find the making of ones Jewish identity nothing more than a tribal, yes, tribal, identification, unreflective, unquestioned,uncritical,which is reflexively ready to condone and justify any form of behaviour toward others to be a danger, a red light that should make us ask some very serious questions about who we are and what we are meant to do in the world. it has nothing to do with a mission to save, or a unceasing need to disparage.It's holding the State of Israel,as representative of the Jewish collective to moral account in a way that a Balkan nationalist, would not his ethnic group. With Jews there can never bemy country right or wrong.
