    Secondly, what are you doing complaining about someone writing a diary about Israel before sundown on Yom Kippur when, if I'm correct, you're on the west coast where the sun is still up and yet you're posting here.  Thirdly, the media is silent about a lot of things, so yes, this poll is about media silence regarding Israeli nukes because the diary, while a big whine as far as I'm concerned, is a big whine about Israeli nukes.  Fourthly, stop with the hyperbole, please.

      about me breaking Yom Ha Kippur. I posted a diary saying as much that I was sinning.  Secondly, yes I am on the West Coast. BTW, I am also at work. But, I am holding to the fast and I did go to services last night. SO... in pretzel logic land this makes sense.

      Third, this is an ongoing lie about why the media is silent about Israel. No one is warned off talking about Israeli nukes unless they are Mordechai Vannanu.

      Finally, what hyperbole? Some people here see everyday as a new day to villify Israel. Would you deny that?

        on a day when we are supposed to fast.

        Now, having gotten that out of my system, there is a big difference, to me at least, between what you say here:

        Some people here see everyday as a new day to villify Israel.

        and what you said upthread.  Clearly, you and I disagree about the villifying Israel part, but yes, I would agree with your statement here, as opposed to the more global one you first made, that there are some people here who do use their one diary a day to criticize Israel.  But as for the journalists, how do you know that no one is warned off talking about Israeli nukes?  It could be that they're not, but we both know that there is all sorts of pressure put on journalists not to talk about certain topics, although it's certainly an open secret that Israel has nukes.

      many things, especially those not related to celebrity gossip.

      and especially when it comes to US allies misdeeds. or the blatant and extreme hypocrisy of US foreign policy.

      so yes, it is imperative that the rest of us talk about it. Who else will?
