  1. My God, you’re so young! Sorry, I just had to get that out of the way…but since you’re young (there, that’s the second time) you’re also the future. And you will quite possibly live to see a time when Americans will be able to talk freely about foreign policy in the Middle East, without the cultural vigilantism of the Lobby…

  2. Kudos to you!!! Would you mind being added to my own blogroll?

  3. Oh look, another young ‘destroy the Jews’ “exterminate Israel’ nutcase in the making

    • Dear NotGert: Where’s the nutcase? All I see is a blood-soaked Zionist hatemonger spewing bigotry & poison according to orders. Take a flying f*ck, NotGert. You’re a Zionazi scumbag.

    • Notgert – I don’t think that’s quite the point of this blog. The only hatred (inferred in your exterminate and nutcase comments) I see is coming from you. It’s a shame that you can’t look at this in a balanced way, and set aside the prejudices you have so clearly already built up.

  4. Alex, pleased to see such an informed and impressive young person engaged in this crucial issue. Max Blumenthal’s videos are rather depressing in their portrayal of the idiot young, so reading your site helps alleviate my gloomier moments. thanks.

  5. I am sure your parents are real proud that you are devoting your life to telling people that, “It’s only a SMALL MINORITY OF JEWS, who are ruining the world!!!!!”.

  6. Good work Kane.

  7. good work, alex! thank you.

  11. Laughing when Iraqi people kill each other is not Anti-Semitism.

  12. Thanks for doing what you do! And I wholeheartedly agree with your recent Tweet “This whole being held by Israeli security at Ben Gurion for 6 plus hours while they decide if they will let me in bites.” Glad you made it in!

  13. Yes Alex, you are young, and yes, some of the a___holes who are being spiteful here are trying to scare you away — don’t let them. Keep up your spirit and keep up your work. That is an impressive array of magazines you have already published with ( R’Pepper, Elec-intif etc ) . That is great that one so young is so intillegently and righteously focused , and not wasting time getting into music journalism blog writing, bulls__ think tanks or something equally co erced and empty.

    More power. More Love. Ignore the trolls posting above.


  14. It is awesome to see a blogger who is also a journalist. And it is cool to see likeminded young people who are blogging about things that are important. The Palestine-Israeli conflict is one that has majorly shaped today’s politics and not a lot of people appear to be aware of this.

  16. Sorry, I don’t see why I should buy anything a 21-year-old has to sell on such a complicated topic. Lo and behold – you manage to simplify everything into a story of black and white, the Israelis are always wrong and the Palestinians always right.
