Dear ANN BALFOUR - Response

Reader comment on item: My Disrupted Talk at UCLA
in response to reader comment: Dear YNNA:

Submitted by Ynna(TCHKAH) (United States), May 22, 2007 at 19:45

First of all, Ann Balfour.

I studied about AN ARTIST, MANY years ago, called Greta Berlin as an artist, so there is an artist called Greta Berlin.

True I have never seen her .

Many years ago, even before coming to America, I have studied about her in the university, so before calling me Ill informed, plot by yourself on the Web to see that there is another person there that IS an artist and her name is Greta Berlin. I studied about her work, briefly in the University, many years ago, adjacently, as my Metier there, was not this one.

And, Madam Balfour, I'm extremely happy that this woman called Greta Berlin is not the artist.

It would be a tragedy to our environment to have this "activist, so ill informed about the Israeli Tragedy when having Islamo Fascist exterminating them, to have her close to my former Metier.

And, looks to me NOW as an activist that she was a professional parasite, like many self proclaimed activist, e.g.Shapiro. You said you like to hear others' opinions.....

Since you support her attitude and as you said, I do not have to agree with you and her, in my opinion,she is not an activist, she is a professional well paid parasite, wanting to get some support and feel herself as a complete human being.

I'll not bother myself to see her "extensive" writings for what, size (extensiveness), does not mean anything to me, and you said that she has been shot by Israeli Military...

Come On....

...1. I was not there to see.

1.1 I did not hear the Israeli Army Side- a true balanced position that you didn't bother to take, as a "balanced woman".

2. Was she in the middle of a shooting time in between the Israeli Army struggling to defend its people, and she by being brain washed by Islamic Fascists was defending Palestinian children who were being used by Hamas to attack Israelis, or what, so this argument maybe or not a fallacy.....

3.She was attacked by a Hebron Settler?

You are ill informed Ann Balfour....

Actually you called me so aggressively- ill informed-, because you took sides already, despite to the fact that you "like" to hear different opinions, struggling to picture yourself as a very fair and balanced woman, which I totally disagree.

A Hebron Jewish citizen, is NOT a settler.

Jews have been living in that region for centuries....

The case of the fallacies of the occupied territories and the biased and Wrong interpretation of resolution 242, does not corroborate the Jewish citizen living there as a settler, and again, was madam Berlin protecting a hamas that was trying to mutilate the "settler" and kill a victim of their terrorism, so by playing human shield and thus a hero, Berlin was looking forward to be recognized- YOUR argument is not acceptable by me- for the simple lack of proof.


This is not an illegal occupation.

But, this place- right here- is not a blog to discuss the lack of accuracy in your speech.

So the most important two things here are:

1. I'm extremely happy she is NOT THE artist. It will be deplorable to a real artist spirituality.

2. You are not a balanced woman, MADAM BALFOUR-despite to the fact that you use a sort of a Dale Carnegie tool and a small touch of Orwellian language here, to be seen by others as fair and very reasonable person.

The tune of your speech here was full of emotion and support for Berlin and aggression against me.

Yet, I do think it is ridiculous, at least in my culture, perhaps not in your culture, to a woman in her 60s and 70s, to disrespect students at the University, as Madam Allison expressed the way she was disrespected by the time she tried to reach a sit- a brief e.g.

Time to hang up her boots.

So, if you are to reply my answer, please do not come with stupid discussion about illegal occupation, for what it is not illegal, nor an occupation., There is nothing absolutely you can say, that will change my mind about the way Islamic fascist are struggling to make up the history.

Again, the fact that BERLIN was attacked by a settler, and the Jewish military, are non proven facts and by the way, widely repeated as a mantra by Islamic facists and Jews haters playing victims.

...And she deeply disrespected Dr. Daniel Pipes, so since you are such a balanced woman, did you try at least to silence her, for what if it were her lecture, then she could have act in any way she would want, but this lecture was provided by an organization, so she should respect others or leave, or call aside later on Dr. Pipes, and as an historian add to his vast experience, her case, without disrupting.

Finally, your first argument, that your normally do not respond to people, but you responded to my post, was not because I was was ill informed.

Yes, about her status as an artist, I was badly informed, but

My Ill informed that touched you was not b/c of that, but b/c I pointed out some painful truths about the situation in my understanding, and its psychological sphere, and you got somehow identified consciously or unconsciously to what I said, so you angrily replied as a way to repel it ASAP.

This is basic lacanian analisis.

Are you well informed about Jaques Lacan, ANN BALFOUR.

And, I wrote ANN BALFOUR instead of Ann Balfour, as a courtesy to the way you addressed me: YNNA- instead of Ynnatchakh.

You want to show you know Russian, Ann....Anyone knows this basic thing, without even knowing a word in Russian. It is Common Culture.....Your do not have to make others non-ill-informed about the diference in between Ynna and Ynnatchkah....Everybody knows that.
