Keep Up the Good Work, Mr. Pipes!

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

Submitted by Johnny Cash (Canada), Jul 29, 2008 at 00:44

I fully agree. Indeed, the pride (and love) of country can blind oneself to some pretty harsh realities. I sincerely hope Mr. Schweitzer realizes that we criticize Israel from a position of love, even if we (like myself) have never (yet) set foot in the Holy Land. Oh, and do keep up the criticisms of Canada. We here are so entrenched in our political correctness it helps when an astute observer like Mr. Pipes throws in his two cents. 'If only those horrible truthmongers would just go away', the world cries, 'then everything would just be fine'. Well, the world is not 'fine', not by any stretch. Neither myself nor Mr. Pipes will keep quiet about the land and people of Israel. I believe it's called 'free speech'. Even when it hurts.
