  1. I'm sorry Mike that I've got a little quiet. This work can be chilling for the soul sometimes as I guess you know and sometimes I need a rest. I read and appreciate everything you and the others write.

    Thanks. To you all.

    I've been thinking about how much we have come to expect as normal in so short a time.

    Antisemitic death threats for example but the list is long.

    The resurgence of vile antisemitic propaganda everywhere. The self censorship from straight out intimidation. Don't mention the ... or ... will get real upset and cut your baby's throat. Literally.

    Just shut up about ... . Don't draw attention to yourself. Otherwise if you get hurt or have to go in to hiding it's your own fault. If others get hurt too that's your fault as well. Just shut up.

    US civil authorities putting some deluded nobody with a rap sheet and an axe to grind through some midnite perp run (is that the term?) watched from everywhere with the full resources of the authorities and the media. In the US?

    That's new.

    Isn't it?

    In the land of the First Amendment?

    Australia doesn't have a constitutional equivalent to the First Amendment. For the first time in my life I wish we had.

    Why the witch hunt? Because he uploaded some piece of garage made garbage that I haven't been able to watch past about the two minute mark even though I immediately linked it to my blog.

    Boy weren't they ever disappointed when he turned out not to be an Israeli. Not even a Jew.

    I post this here because it is just past sundown where I am. I hope you had a peaceful day. I did not want to interrupt that with unpeaceful thoughts.

    I have come to respect the view that we all need a break every now and then for the protection of the soul. Once a week sounds as good an idea as any.

  2. Mike and all

    I've put an updated version of this comment up as post at the joint.
