Max Blumenthal a supporter of the Talmudic concept of Herem otherwise known as the Boycott and Divestment movement, has decided to resign his position at Al Akhbar newpaper.
In the above interview Max Blumenthal makes a lot of very good points about the Syria situation, I actually agree with much of what he says. The question is why would someone who is obviously intelligent and has valid opinions decide it is appropriate to censor his own right to free speech?
Here on deLiberation there are diverse opinions, a quick look through the comments section shows that many topics are discussed. How can we claim to uphold the right to freedom of speech and intellectual discourse if we have to exclude ourselves from sharing any platform with people who do not agree with us?
I do not apologise for recycling this joke because it describes the mentality so well
Q: How many synagogues are needed in a village with just one single Jewish habitant?
