James, I feel that the rhetoric of Nick on the Gaza thread is unacceptable. I feel personally insulted and under attack. Whatever your political views, there is no call for this language. If I were to discuss Arabs or Moslems in these terms I would be shouted down as an out and out bigoted racist. The language Nick is using about the Israel Defence Forces is the same since every Israeli is a soldier. My daughter was in the Airforce. We ALL have to serve in the army, unlike Nick or anyone else who sees fit to make spurious judgements. I would request you put in your two bits. The Forum should not be one where ugly insults can be traded. I shall be reconsidering my Summer Bash invitation, as I feel I may be subject to ugliness in my own home.
