A Retro Piece in an "Art" Context?

Reader comment on item: The Paterson 'Protocols'

Submitted by John Hadjisky (United States), Nov 5, 2002 at 22:41

All,

In the past I've challenged this forum, and Mr. Pipes, to remain sensitive to the finer points of the Yasin incident at Harvard's commencement, and not to leap to condemn a still-young man who, for whatever reasons, may once have had associations with elements of radical Islam (e.g. the Holy Land Foundation) but who now appears to me to be attempting to associate with more moderate, revisionist ideas.

I just want to say that I see no such need for fine distinctions in the current case of the "Patterson Protocols." The papers that are reproducing these lies (whether out of conviction or willful ignorance), and the people who are enabling them, should be ashamed, and I wholeheartedly support Mr. Pipes' condemnation of them.

[I was just kidding when I wrote "retro" and "art" in the title of this post...in spite of the deadly serious issues discussed here, its important to maintain a sense of humor...it's one more thing that separates us from the fanatics!]
Submitting....
