Reader comment on item: Polls, Palestinians and the Path to Peace

Submitted by Eileen (United States), Feb 20, 2003 at 20:44

I have to say that prior to September 11, 2001, I considered myself aligned with many liberal causes. I, myself said during a lunch room conversation that we needed to "understand" what the root causes were for the unrest in the middle east. Since then, I have diligently read and researched old/new material. It has in fact become an avocation for me.

My, my, how naive was I! Turning point was when i read an article by William F. Buckley on profiling under the guise of "If red haired men were...... would we be watching red haired men? Yes Yes Yes. and a light went on. Then I read a few things by Bat Yeor... Along my research travels i was fortunate to chance upon an article by you and have followed your writing avidly since then.

Keep up the good work! It is vital that people know what the truth is, even if it is politically incorrect, uncomfortable, etc. In particular, the "Israeli/Palestinian conflict" has tainted all perceptions, talks and actions that we make in the middle east.
