The Abba Eban quotation is fascinating. I wonder what you would think, Joni, of a German UN ambassador and Foreign Minister who, in 1973, had spoken of an 'Aryan world' in dialogue with 'the Jewish race'. I suspect you would have him in a similar category to Jeff Rense: persona non grata. Reflecting on Eban's world view, and by implication yours, Joni, I cannot help but be reminded of Jorge Borges's insightful observation: if we fight long enough, then we become our enemy. It is to Chomsky's (and also those Israeli Jews who have struggled long and hard to obtain human rights for Palestinians) eternal credit that he has succeeded in transcending this outlook on humanity. -- Gerald O'Connell http://www.saatchionline.com/gacoc Listen to 'Strange Days...
