Writing Fiction, The Pseudistinians

I hope that this Dry Bones Poster isn't just going to "preach to the converted." Remember that all the varied aspects and manifestations of antisemitism defy logic and rationality.

Rebranding and slick public relations won't be any more successful than the Judenrat's cooperation with the Nazis.

There's only one thing that will help us, and that's to be a "David" rather than a "Saul." Yesterday I asked a rather "foolish question" to Ezra Yachin at Seudat Shlishit (the third Shabbat meal.) I asked him why he moved to the Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Channina right after the 1967 Six Days War.

Ezra replied that he finds the question offensive:
"One should ask the Arabs why they're living here, not Jews. Ask a Jew why he's living in New York!

This is our Land. We're the only people with a history here."

AMEN!

I second your Amen:)

It's not preaching to the choir at all. You'd be surprised how many uniformed people post comments on You Tube videos defending the "state" of Palestine. It's good to have some quick comments to counter there lies.

As far as I'm concerned "Palestine" is just a base camp for the terrorist PLO. Strange how nobody refers to the PLO on the news anymore. Now it's almost always Hamas or Fatah.

That's all well and good but for the majority of westerners who don't follow Middle Eastern politics the names are meaningless.

Use PLO and people would sit up and take notice. PLO word association--terrorism, middle east, Arafat, Italian restaurant like tablecloth on his head.
