re: #9 rosiee

A woman who believes Israeli self-defense is illegal and a writer for the nation, geeze CuriousLurker you arn’t really reaching across the isle.

Laila’s confession:

Am I the sole LGF member responsible for reaching across the aisle? Were YOU reaching across the aisle when you posted Hitchens’ comments?

Oh, and next time link to the full blog entry you’re talking about, which makes no claim about Israeli self-defense being illegal: No Explanation Left Behind.

As for being a writer for The Nation, it’s a well-known, respectable liberal publication that has been in existence since 1865, so I’m not sure how that’s mark against her, which is what you seem to be implying.

BTW, Ms. Lalami has also written for The Boston Globe, Boston Review, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Daily Beast. Based on a quick Google search of her site for “israel” or “hamas”, and skimming a dozen or so of her articles, she doesn’t appear to be an anti-Semite or Hamas supporter, so I don’t see any problem with using her as a source.
