my post was the cause of the bile posted by Dr Ferragamo and the reason that the thread was closed--too bad--Dr Ferragamo response was quite enlightening and it is unfortunate that the editors chose to close the thread (though they did leave his vile post online).
I think that is good also since it will show most people the kind of crap that some people post on this forum.
As is the case with any post regarding Israel, there are certain persons (or one person posting under different names) that posts racist, anti-semitic lies in order to poison the discussion.
It is unfortunate that Dr Ferragamo is not willing to engage in civil debate in which people provide the facts for their positions and reply in a civil manner. It would have been interesting to see Dr Ferragamo's facts that the jews were responsible for 9/11

Well, there are topic threads for just PA, but I am still hoping we can somehow have a civilized way of discussing national and international topics. There is not one forum that is national or international that I know of that isn't bile filled. I stay away from them, and just keep hoping we can make it work here..maybe I should give it up.
