"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
I used to faithfully watch Thom Hartmann every day, until I noticed the thin egg-shell he was walking own when it comes to criticizing Israel over its attack on the Peace Flotilla.
Love your program but I think that it is interesting that while your guest and you agree that the facts are not known yet
you both accept the "fact" that Israeli soldiers carrying high powered US weapons were attacked by Peace Makers
with tools. If we don't know the facts -- how are you certain that these are facts?
I think we must wait until the people on the ship who were witnessing this give their eyewitness accounts. The Israeli propaganda machine is not necessarily a good source of information.
Thom, Israel is NOT a democracy, Please do a little research. Here are just three articles that might get you started:
I think Thom should have handled Mr Fisher by asking how he made his living. When he said he paid taxes, well so do illegal aliens. Now I would have asked him how he paid for his lights, water, garbage, insurance, his own health insurance, his own car insurance, etc.. If his answer is from the money he receives from his parishioners, then he has a business, just like Thom, politicians, lawyers, and the rest of us who take money from people to promote our businesses, making a living.
I wonder about the "peaceful Gaza Flotilla when they prepare in this way =
It sounds like they want to instigate violence to achive martyrdom !!
