    Hi Fagin There is an assumption in your comments that really needs challenging. That is to say, Ravi - dalit of otherwise - is not concerned about the situation of marginalised and oppressed people in his own society. How do you know this? Is it not simply the result of a projection on your part? Because, evidently, you care nothing for the oppression of the Palestinians you assume that others are of a similar outlook. Furthermore, there is a really dangerous argument underlying your attempt to discredit Ravi. As I read it, you are saying that people who live in countries where people are oppressed have no right to take an interest in the situation of people elsewhere. One implication of that argument is that Americans - who live in a society with immense social problems of poverty, discrimination and marginalisation - should take no interest in Israel. And where would that leave us??? I realise and appreciate your sensitivity when your country is criticised by 'outsiders' but I would really encourage you to develop a more intelligent line of argument. And using little phrases such as 'risible remarks' really is no substitute for reasoned discussion. cheers Jason
