Just the facts… I think that this site may sometimes attract a certain 9/11 truther type, and some of them go way over the line. I’ve come across haters that still claim no Jews died on 9/11, when it is so ridiculous and has anyway been debunked over & over. Unfortunately, when discussing I/P, inevitably haters will use some articles as ammunition, will weave truth into their lies. Especially when its a Jewish voice – they think it gives them authenticity. Unfortunately there is a certain truth in the claim made by the Dersh, that criticism of Israel gives ammunition to haters. But that is no excuse to censor ones self, for fear of stoking a tiny minorities lies and hate.
So Newt Gingrich isn’t welcome (I’m sure he’s an avid fan), as denial of Palestinian existence is surely the same as Nakba denial. It’s a prerequisite, there were no Palestinians to expel. btw, I’ve seen many ‘conservatives’ repeat this line, how has conservatism become so contaminated? Seems like true Conservatives e.g. Pat Buchanan, are wary of foreign ventures, influence, and should be all for Palestinian self determination / liberty. I hope Mondoweiss will promote those Conservatives voicing opposition to war w/ Iran, those few that speak out on Palestinian rights. Those of a Conservative persuasion need to hear dissenting voices from their own ranks, preaching to the choir can get you only so far.
