On Hate.

I had written this post on hate back in the Israeli war on Lebanon in 2006. I still believe in it of course. Political anger and rejection of Zionist colonization of Palestine is acceptable and imperative, but not hate--not on racial, religious, or ethnic grounds. And readers in the Arab world who may be subjected to anti-Semitic trash from the official state (or fanatic religious) media should know that there are American Jews I know who care more about the Palestinians than many Arabs. The enemy is Israel and Zionism--and Arab Zionists (Arab regimes and Dahlans) are as deadly as Israeli Zionists.
