Tikkun has a full-page ad in the New York Times--as always, the premise is (like in Paul Krugman's) what is good for Israel and the "anguish" of Israeli occupation soldiers. But how dare Lerner begin the ad with this: "In the name of our sisters and brothers suffering and dying in Lebanon, Israel, and the Occupied Palestinian Territories." Now, they very well may speak on behalf of Israel, but the day that Tikkun speaks on behalf of Arabs is the day when I will deny my Arab roots. Please tell Tikkun to NEVER EVER speak on behalf of Arabs.
