    Dear Mr FOX, I see the intellectual level of the debate plunging in your reply, and being replaced by invective and ad hominem attacks. I do not normally correspond with zionists, and my messages here are addressed to the progressive audience, which is the larger part of the Haaretz readership. I will nevertheless take the pain to point out some of your misconceptions. (1) I did not toss Marxism to the trash can, quite the contrary: remember that all communist states supported all revolutionary movements and national liberation movements, as a matter of principle, to the degree it was feasable. On the other hand, I wonder if you know what "nihilism" means, as you use this concept. It applies wonderfully to the misguided so-called Israeli left - well that's what they call themselves, in spite of having dreams of saving a quiet Jewish corner for themselves on Palestinian land. (2) I have tenure, thanks for your concern, and I do not spend time discussing material benefits. But I may indeed sound tired, as this is the time of year when we do a lot of marking. (3) Your message, starting with where you enumerate lots of countries, is just incoherent - beneath any argument. (4) You are repeating yourself with that threat to come and take over my house - though when you wrote it first time, it was much better written, witty. Are you getting tired? A search on Google for a town called Karkur gave no results. A search for FOX would give too many results to contemplate.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
