I am glad this website can be used wisely.  I accidental wandered onto the website of "Elder of Ziyon" one time, and it was just absolutely sickening what people had to say.  The moderator of "Elder of Ziyon" is kept anonymous, and I can see why too.  I lost track how many times I was called an Anti-Semitic Muslim Nazi on there.  Which seems to be the favorite catch phrase for extremists.

Irit is right. 

We need to remember that Eyal is the one who had the insight to set up this group, and allow everyone the freedom to express all manner of opinion about issues that have frequently not been discussed.

Furthermore, Eyal actually has to pay a significant sum of money to fund this group. ning groups are not free, and this one is set up in deluxe mode - the most expensive format.

Thanks, on behalf of all of us.
