I’ve just discovered that The Guardian has published my latest contribution in their Comment is Free blog, Acting in Ignorance, which details harsh acts of Israeli incitement in the aftermath of the Merkaz HaRav terror attack. I’ve grown used to the editors changing my chosen titles and this time is no exception. My original title was a riff on the old HaShomer slogan: In Blood, Fire and Hatred Shall Judea Rise Again, which I like quite a bit better.
I can’t believe how many comments have been deleted by the moderator. I’m used to stirring up a hornet’s nest in certain circles.
Richard – I regularly post comments on The Guardian’s website. It is very dynamic, with a myriad of different topic threads being moderated simultaneously. I discovered your own well-run blog through your profile with that came with the article ‘Acting in Ignorance’.
If they had retained your original [?] title of: In Blood, Fire and Hatred Shall Judea Rise Again – ALL HELL WOULD HAVE BROKEN LOOSE!!! – The Israel/Palestine threads are the busiest and regularly draw venom from all quarters!
Please allow me to post these three pertinent links:
May compassionate PRAGMATISM come to the fore in Israel/Palestine!
