Response to King_David (Reply #97)

99. I take it from my friends, relitives and clients.

Three are producers at MSNBC and NBC. Several are classmates of mine from The New School of Social Research from the 80's who are still close friends. Many are from Teaneck High School (where the largest ethnic/religious group was Jewish) from my childhood who are now in all walks of life all over the world. My Aunt and Uncle, their children and their children's children. At least half of my clients (some of whom are Israeli) and 3 past boyfriends.

Not all of these people feel the same way and many are at varying levels on one side or the other but many of these people are the ones to open my eyes to the injustices suffered by the Palestinian people. In fact, I have never met a non Jew who was anything but an enthusiastic supporter of Israel. My Dad, who spent twenty years in the Middle East, is extremely pro-Israel and that is how I was raised.

I'm sure you aren't really interested in these things. You just want to accuse me of being a liar because you are completely invested in your side of the story. I have not accused you of lying about never meeting a Jew who was sympathetic to Palestinians even though I find it amazing. By the way, I did not intend to call the groups religious. I should have said that the people involved sounded religious. Half the Jews in the U.S. are not religious. Most don't belong to Jewish groups. Several of my Jewish friends are Buddhists but most are Atheists. They live secular and unaffiliated lives.
