    What happened to the comments that were here?

    Touch subject, Israel involved. Consistent.

    But just a matter of the withdrawal being in house or whatever.

  3. John W says:

    Mossad hack???

    Surveillance !

  4. Theodore says:

    Hmmmmm, I could swear I left a comment here as well.

    Oh well, just for the record,

    1. Israel is the prime aggressor in the region

    2. Israel should lift the blockade against Gaza

    3. Israel’s illegal settlements in the West Bank must cease, Israeli settlers withdrawn, and the houses handed over tom Palestinians whose homes were destroyed by Israeli aggression

    4. FFS, tear down that effing Wall!!!

  5. $250 donated. A good cause worthy of our support.

  6. John W says:

    Your contribution in cash follows you generous contribution to public good generally.

    Fighting for those who are unable to fend for themselves and assisting those ignorant of vital information, has been you voluminous contribution by way of pen.

    And perhaps a little education along the way for those who give support to the perpetrators of growing inequity, if they are capable of absorbing such.
