  • 'Today is one of the most tragic days in the history of the Jewish people': one American Jew's response to the Gaza massacre
    • I don't think Philip Weiss would have been influential enough to avert this day no matter WHOM he listened to, WHEN. I don't quite know when he failed to listen to us goyim, but 30 years ago, I must confess I myself had little awareness of the profound influence exerted by organized Jewry upon American national affairs. And I think my awareness may STILL be growing, impossible though that seems in view of the levels it has already attained.

  • Fighting Nakba denial
    • The relegation of "Holocaust denial" to a "fringe movement" is handmaiden to the overwhelming dominance of the Nakba denial so (correctly) bewailed in this article.

      Aside from the obvious error of (truly rare) actual denial of the Holocaust, there is a huge literature ( ) of Holocaust study (sometimes labeled "revisionism") that is made fringe by such crimes as forcing Amazon.com to expunge over 155 such titles on March 6, 2017, including some titles they had been carrying since their founding in keeping with Jeff Bezos's early (1998) declaration of his intention to carry "all books." Part of the crime lies in we hapless readers thinking this ideal is still being honored and, when finding nothing on Amazon of such nature (not EVEN the usual "stubs" that Amazon keeps for books that are out of print and unavailable), conclude that the matter truly has "died out."

      Nothing of the sort. The difference between a natural death and murder is all the difference in the world. The revisionist canon is truly "down the memory hole." Whither the Nakba...

  • AIPAC is suddenly getting a lot of bad press, in Jewish papers and 'Washington Post'
    • "Reporters have been licensed ...?"

      I've been using (and reading) English for over 70 years at this point, and I can't quite make sense of this statement. Could anyone elucidate this usage of the verb (licensed) so as to imply censure, as the context would appear to imply?

      A typo? Incensed? I seek precision in these discussions, as Orwell once enjoined us to do.

  • Jared Kushner fired me over Israel ten years ago
    • Fascinating profile of the new Senior Advisor.

      Will the president listen to this one? That one? Believe him/her?
