State Legislative Hearing on Bills Relating to Isthmus

Hearing RoomJust posted a short article at Olyblog on Washington State Senate Hearing on Isthmus Related Bills:


  1. Jews cannot be citizens of Jordan or own land. Do you oppose this racist regime?

  2. Why are Jews not allowed to be citizens in Jordan?

    Is that true? I find your accusation to be dubious and highly questionable.

    I oppose racism and oppression - period.

    However, the reason that the violence and oppression of Israel against Palestine is a focus for me (and so many others) is quite simple. Perhaps you have overlooked this obvious aspect of the relationship.

    One of the major reasons that the tyrannies of Israel are a subject of intense interest is because of the special relationship between Israel and the United States.

    There are other reasons for me - like the incredibly horrible and sad irony of the Jews oppressing another people in much the same manner that the they, the Jews, were oppressed and victimized in Nazi Europe...

    Finally - Why are you writing comments all over my blog on threads, the topic of which are unrelated to the conflict in Israel / Palestine?
