First, the news: this week we hit 2000 thank yous! My very rough estimate is that a fifth are from countries outside North America, one third have Arab or Muslim names, and about fifteen percent are Jewish.
Forty of you have signed up to the Israel-Palestine Working Group of Progressive Democrats of America. Thank you! I look forward to getting to know you better.
Here is the link to the debate between Norman Finkelstein and Gil Troy over Carter’s book. The format allows for both speakers to really articulate their views, so you can get an authentic feel for each side – much better than most news show formats. Maybe we’ll never see Carter and Dershowitz on Crossfire, but this is better.
