One Response to “Articles”

  1. 3/5/12–
    In your recent article on “War Crimes,” you failed to mention the most notorious “war crimes” nation, even before the country existed–Israel. And war-criminals–Ben Gurion, Moshe Dayan, Ishak Shamir, Ariel Sharon, Yehud Barak, Ben Netanyahu, etc. etc. — and with our complicity…..
    Only our ‘protection’ enables some of them to travel abroad without being arrested.
    Any reason for this omission?
