    hey buddy, I understand that after leaving the yeshiva you were in need of a new religion. I can feel for you. Your new religion, Left-Light is a fine religion, backed by reams of literature and op-ed pieces. What disturbs me is your 'convert' mentality. As a new believer you have an urge to share the 'saviour', but beware my friend. Often times one can lose their moral grounding when trying to attend to your agenda. Sure you hate Bush, imperailism and occupation. I realize that Saddam, as an enemy of Bush, has become an ally to you. You will now pull of Chinese Opera acrobatics to make your points. But to turn to racism, the claim that the Iraqis our chained to their history. Tsofetta, read some Turkish history. They also occupied Babel for a few hundred years. They were as cruel as the Iraqis, both the evil north and the "smiling" cuddly south. Yet today they are attempting to enter a Europe that does not want them. Apologize to Iraqis.
