  2. Please, in the future, refrain from posting commentary that does not relate to the topic of the post at hand.

    Further, if you would like to carry on a discussion with me about the conflict between Israel and Palestine, then I am willing. Please, you're welcome to contact me by email, and perhaps we can set up a time to talk by telephone, or perhaps meet in person. Of course, we could attempt to dialogue via email.

    However, I am not sure the reactionary posting of comments to my blog is really the best way to serve the cause of understanding between us.

    What do you think? Are you willing to enter into dialogue with me?
