No such spam nor anything remotely like it will be tolerated today, especially under this post.

"Herman" of the last comment: Email me, tell me you who your are, agree to identify yourself here by your real first and last name, and I'll put your post back up.

Living down the road from a rabid antisemite has made it especially enjoyable to host passover seders, as well as the occasional shabbat.

I think every time we dunk the parsley in the salt water "tears" or rip apart a homemade challah, it symbolizes a blow to fascism ;-)

If any putative left wing jews who have any critique of Israel wishes to comment on this site, I warn you that you will be out through the ringer and be subjected to a medical examination and perhaps urine sample. More so as Mr Glavin has made quite clear specific jewish voices and "yanks" are no welcomes here, a nasty combination of anti semitism and anti americanism something that I now plan to make known to friends and colleagues in media and those I know in the Bay Area. All of this because my rather calm and autobiographical response to both Seder and justice disturbed our censor here, who invents all sorts of stories and tales just to block comments. This man is odd. Im outta here

You will be guilty not only of bad faith and poor understanding but of spreading lies in a deliberate attempt to impugn the name of a good man.

The fact that you are Jewish (I presume) does not give you any special right or authority to fulminate in this way.

BTW, it's "through the wringer", not "ringer".

I expect I will soon have to put up an Easter post, with an Irish twist, reflecting the traditions of my own auld tribe, and which I fear will really smoke out the cranks.

It is all part of life's rich pageant.

Iceclass: I had nearly 5,000 visitors to this fine web lodge one day earlier this week. A rare day, true, but I have no evidence that there was anything more than a few cranks among the lot of them.
