Damn Straight!

Reader comment on item: May an American Comment on Israel?

Submitted by Sheldon Tyber (United States), Jul 28, 2008 at 18:46

Admittedly, our opinions have to be treated "appropriately", since me and my kids are not obligated to army duty, and since we are far away, and, and, and...

If anybody, it's Schweitzer that is patronizing!!
