Tess - That's right. I'd love to get off Talkback alogether, except perhaps for my discussions with you and a few others, but at this point I feel some responsibility to correct the lies I see and not simply leave it to others. It's talking up WAY more of my time than I'd like and I may decide to get off altogether anway; I'm not really intersted in spending my time responding to evil, ignorant, completely close-minded people. The Israel bashers are the worst human beings I've ever seen in my life. I say that as an American Jew who has never once experienced any antisemitism in ths country, so it isn't exactly somesthing I see when it is not there. I'm delighted I live in a country where most of the people are accepting of Jews and I believe most other minority groups, though obviously we have a ways to go with some groups still.
