"Understanding the errors may afford new light."
In the spirit of openness and transparency, on the 12th anniversary of one of the most devastating gut-punches our country has taken, I humbly open this fanpost with an apology. I have misread the scope of my role in a particular instance and, after clarification from Above, would like to amend my earlier position. And what a perfect time to do so - the day 12 years ago where those who would not see free speech practiced, who would wipe out my relatives and their relatives from the face of the Earth, chose to make their ideology front and center to the world in a most brutal fashion.
So I invite you who (I have since discovered) properly wished an open discourse on "why is our government supporting Israel to the extent where it seems detrimental to our relations with many other countries and cultures?" and all associated topics to converse. Feel free to use this thread to share your ideas, your feelings, and your information. I adviser you to remember the rules of engagement - no personal attacks, no mothers (except in TP's case), and above all please respect the spirit of openness and candor that SSS continually attempts to engender.
So who wants to start?
