Reader comment on item: Netanyahu's Quiet Success
in response to reader comment: Engaging In Polemics For The Sake of Engaging in Polemics

Submitted by Seamus Dafydd Dives MacNemi (United States), Oct 22, 2009 at 22:12

I am already involved in many of those things which you suggest within my own community. We act as a collective in regards to these matters so my own contribution is combined with that of many others there by providing us with a barrier of anonymity so that we might not have to worry about possible retribution from those who would oppose us for what ever reason. Though our faces might not be seen still our impact will be felt. I, speaking for myself, do not fear having my name known so I do not feel the need to hide behind some screen name but there are many of us who do not feel so self assured especially in these days of Obama.

I have already told you that I served as a volunteer reservist in the Israeli Army during the Yom Kippur war and that my grand father served in the Irgun with Menachem Begin. These things I spoke truly not in bragging but merely to show where my loyalties lie. I did nothing heroic, I merely did those tasks to which I was assigned to the best of my ability and hopefully I made some small contribution to the whole. Were I now a younger man I would gladly do the same all over again but I have long passed the age for adventuring so all I have left is my words to offer. If that is not good enough I am very sorry but I have little else now to offer.
