Open Letter to the Jewish Members of LGF

CL, I’m not Jewish, so this wasn’t exactly addressed to me, but it was thoughtful and heartfelt, and I appreciate your posting it.

Like Elizajane I stay out of discussions of Israeli politics because it is the one area of LGF where passions seem to override the usual bounds of our discussions. I believe there is right and wrong on both (all?) sides and that all people deserve a safe place to live in peace and dignity. I’m also not naive enough to believe that we’ll all be holding hands and singing Kumbaya any time soon. What we deserve is not necessarily what we get.
