The goal on this site is to foster free and open conversation, and I would prefer if such conversations encompassed ALL views, no matter how far “right” or “left” they may be. For now, comments are not moderated, and I have few rules.
However, let me clear that some things are out of bounds.
There will be no hate speech, name-calling or personal attacks of any kind in these discussions. Such comments will be deleted. And if they happen too often I will be forced to moderate comments on this blog, which I would rather not do. So please be clear on this point.

With reference to your January 19 th posting on the GOP endorsement of a one-state solution, it’s ell to note the languge of the Isreali Dclration of Independence, which says: it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex
I am much in agreement with what you’ve written in this post, Mitchell. I have, though, at times heard comments from members of the Black community that the use of the term “folks” is objectionable – especially by non-blacks – because of the extent to which it’s been used almost exclusively in referring to Black people; in other words it carries with its use some racist history. Maybe just Black “people” would be a better choice of term!?
I am commenting positively on your 2021 article regarding the fact that there are no lines between antisemitism and anti-Zionism. I think this is a well written and researched piece. I am doing something similar albeit from a slightly different perspective, through a series of 16 articles to be published on the Medum platform (https://medium.com/) over the next 8 months. I have an introductory article already posted, if you are interested (https://medium.com/@paulhendler_43678/from-being-a-zionist-to-becoming-and-anti-zionist-jew-affb031f203a). I appreciate your presentation of detailed examples of ant-Zionism which cannot be conflated with antisemitism, as well as your point about the fact that many so-called antisemitic cannards are true – so how can one justifiably call it antisemitic when the critics call out AIPAC for being a concentrated Jewish Zionist lobby when most if not all of its major donors identify themselves as being Jewish and Zinonist?
