    I'm glad you added this comment, because it makes your diary congrue nicely with a recent piece by Peter Beinart in the New York Review of Books: American Jews have strongly negative attitudes toward Palestinians largely because they're never given the opportunity to hear from, or even hear about, actual Palestinians.

    Anyway, fine work as always -- my compliments.

        is a nice counter to the Bienart piece, while also backing it up regarding the stat in my comment.
