He conceded that the Israelis only intend to offer the Palestinians a statelet. That sounds far too fair minded for Hasbara...


The English and punctuation are nonstandard. There are minor (and a few major) usage mistakes that happen when you haven't learned a language perfectly.

I could be wrong, but I'm a writer by profession and have taught writing and English as a second language at a well-known university.


When he wrote "With Hamas winning the Gaza election,..." it was obvious he was a shill.

Hamas did win the election in Gaza and the West Bank.


he does persistently use quotation marks whenever he writes Palestinians or Palestine, apparently referring to the common assertion that there is was no such thing as a Palestinian people.

Nothing fair minded about that. Hasbara imo.

his hyperlink on his name led to a website for a New Jersey based roofing supply company. (???) the site did not appear to list names of officers, directors, and management of the company


I think he's either closed minded or disinguous at best, especially on this last response to you:

I do not think anyone called for his banning. I have no idea who's army he was drafted into, perhaps the IDF in the '60s?

As John Adams said (when defending the British soldiers accused of murder during the Boston Massacre) "Facts are stubborn things". TL seems more interested in "thoughtful and articulate articles" not facts.

Actually, I welcome Theo's comments. Not because I agree with them or relish the tirades that follow; I honestly want to know how the pro-Israel mind ticks.

So, with the good Colonels permission -bring 'em on.

"Theodore Lewis" was an Irish born Rabbi who presided over the Touro synagogue (the oldest in America) for 36 years and died October 5th 2010 at the age of 95.

Some nom de plume......

Patrick Lang


I believe I met the rabbi when I visited Touro synagogue. pl


His signal-to-noise ratio is so low as to be negligible. When I read his screeds, I can feel my IQ dropping by about the third or fourth paragraph.

As far as those wanting to know what the practitioners of hasbara are thinking, we don't need Mr. Lewis to figure that out -- just turn on any TeeVee or read what's printed in the corporate media.


Sightly related to the subject for those interested.


short excerpt..

"The Human Sciences Research Council of South Africa (HSRC) has released a study indicating that Israel is practicing both colonialism and apartheid in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT). The interim report, which will form part of a discussion at an upcoming HSRC conference on the subject, on 13 and 14 June in Cape Town, serves as a document to be finalised later this year.

Regarding apartheid, the team found that Israel's laws and policies in the OPT fit the definition of apartheid in the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid."

He claims to have been drafted at the time Colonel Lang was spit on.

Rob Waddell, I doubt that anyone suggested he should be banned for the very reason you give. Just as I doubt that many here aren't aware of Carolyn Glick. Someone only one tiny step away from hysterics like Pamela Geller. If subscribe to FrontPageMag for a while you'll get the point of view of people like Glick:

David Horowitz FrontPageMag:

A little research on David Horowitz from UBM / David Mills:


Or Daniel Pipes, Weekly Standard and several other resources available on the net.


To me, his comment on the Israeli spying post read more like a copy-paste job from a low information individual than any professional habara comment.


It must be highly gratifying for TL (who is clearly a fan) to be taken for a real player.



Thanks for the links.


Where are you Theodore? Fire in!


Teddy Has-BeaRa,

Are you going to accept Blue's invitation?

Will you stand up, defend your position and fight for yourself?

At least if you are going to be "banned" go out firing. Maybe the Colonel will post a Marc Rothko piece with your farewell adress.


Patrick Lang


I never intended to ban TL, just asking opinions. pl



I know you did not.

Plus you have been gracious to those who have been banned and allowed to return.

I would like to hear what Theodore, in his own words, truly believes in.
