    I am part jewish, and a dual citizen of both the US and Israel. I refrain from posting on Israel related issues because people will just assume bias.

    What part of you is Jewish?

    Clearly not your brain.

    lol way to toss around insults.

    My mothers mother was full blooded hebrew. so that makes me 1/8 Jewish. Enough that Hitler would have killed me. however I was raised Christian.


    But why am I talking to a petty insult artist anyways.

    I'm Irish Catholic. My ex is Russian Jew. My children are obviously mixed. All the more reason for me to stand up to antisemitism. If not now, when?

    My point was any opinion I post on the Arab Israeli conflict will just be dismissed by many as the opinion of a Jew, even though I am an American, and Christian, and only Part Jewish by blood, and a dual citizen because my mother made me so when I was to young to even have a choice.

    believe me when I say the Arab Israeli conflict has touched my life directly.

    And my point was that I think you have an obligation to take stands on this issue. It's easy to stand quiet when you see people lying, misrepresenting and distorting.... but then no one is contradicting them and people who really are open-minded think they're telling the truth. And who cares if anyone thinks you have a bias. We all have preferences. I am biased toward city life, but that doesn't mean anyone would think I'm being untruthful or "biased" if I talk about a great restaurant; great park or whatever....
