I just posted a thingy on Huffingtonpost about the USS Liberty, the American intelligence vessel that was attacked 40 years ago June 8th in international waters by the Israeli Air Force. I lke Huffpo, and I’m grateful they allow me to blog. They get bajillions of hits each day; and the comments that one can solicit there are a very quick and effective way to measure the intellectual temper of some of these bajillions of readers.
So whatever you make of my polemical stunt there; the object here is not to debate the USS Liberty, but to analyze the best we can what the comments reflect about people we may not normally talk to. I may get backpaged pretty quickly, becaus eanti-Zionism is only barely tolerated there, since there seems to be a preferential option exercised there for the what readers believe is “the soul of the Democratic Party.” So it may net ZERO comments.
This is a test.
