Actually you needn't wonder. My comments stand on their face.

Reader comment on item: My Testimony before the House Subcommittee on Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations
in response to reader comment: No misunderstanding, I just think you're wrong.

You want to evade the so called "straw man" and then attempt to call every anti Israel voice "anti Jew". It is absurd. As I have stated twice now, I do not agree with it and am 100% in support of the Jewish state of Israel, however I am not so arrogant to assume that every person in the world that does not support a 2 state solution is anti Jewish. It is an absurd proposition. I happen to think they are wrong, but would not call the position "anti Jew" as you do.

So to expand, I therefore do not feel that ignoring the opinions of "a substantial group" is an effective means of justifying the state of Israel. We can as you seem to do, bury our heads in the sand and insist we are right, or we can prove we are right. The latter involves rational discourse, the former involves a lifeteime of impostion of force that has achieved little in 50 years.
