    That Jewish people have experienced an overwhelming historical effort for a couple thousand years to keep their voices silent.  So why would people within the Jewish culture try to keep other people within the Jewish culture from exercising their rights to free speech?  It is the same as blacks trying to withhold civil rights from gays or the Puritans trying to withhold religious freedoms from other religious people.  

    I don't get why some of the commenters are insulted.  There is within the Jewish community both here in the US and in Israel who are trying their best to stifle dissent of opinions within their own community.  This is exactly what is happening to David.  And it's just plain wrong.
