"That is a convenient stand," Chomsky remarked to me. "It >cuts off a mere 100 percent of critical comment!" >http://jewishcurrents.org/ Joni, I don't find either of those articles convincing, and it seems quite presumptuous to call anyone "self-hating." But we're veering way off topic. And I find it sad that the person I addressed about appearing with Jeff Rense apparently has no desire to answer my questions. Oh, well. We are left to draw our own conclusions when people refuse to answer questions. But already one prominent ufologist has told me he will avoid Rense because of the anti-Semitic slant. He hadn't been aware of how extensive and vile it is. My open letter to the UFO research community: http://michaelmhughes.com/wordpress/?p=1645 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Michael M.
