You are unfortunately so right

One of the greatest pains (and outrages) deep in my heart is caused by these Israelis who reject their past and turn on their identities. Of course they are closely followed by the self hating Jews who are so bent on being 'fair' that they bend over backwards. But there are some pretty atrocious figures out there. The worst is when one of them is presented on a speaking panel as the 'Israeli side' of the argument.

You left out Norman Finkelstein, whose parents were holocaust survivors, and I will not go in to the Israel Shahaks and those of his ilk. My personal favorite (not) is Lea Tzemel, attorney at large.

At any rate, your knowledge of backgrounds of these types is impressive. Ilan Pappe was completely discredited and his work was based on hearsay and flimsy documentation. I communicated with some of the Profs at Haifa U while he was still there and they had some amazing stories. Did you know that both Ilan Pappe and Lea Tzemel were listed to testify on behalf of terrorist organizations in US trials?
