A while back, I, “favorited”, and, “retweeted”, a few posts by @GiladAtzmon, in twitter.  One of my twitter-followers, @AliAbuminah, decided to jump in and explain to me why I should not go along with what GIlad says.  And I had forgotten, til today, to tell Gilad about it.  Since twitter limits us to such a small number of characters, I sent GA a short email:

> Your Name: Anne
> Your Email: *****@gmail.com
> Subject: Ali Abuminah (sp?)
> Message: Did I tell you that Ali and I had a short argument?  He said I needed to use the term, Zionist, rather than Jew.  I should not go along with Gilad Atzmon, “because nobody likes the words he uses”.
> I told him I agreed with you because you were right, not because it was popular.
> He un-followed me on twitter after that exchange.  I thought it was funny and very telling.
>
> Excellent posts, particularly lately!  I’d imagine a lot of Jews have gone extra- nutty over you today.
> @

The latter part of my post to GA had everything to do with his talk in Geneva, recently, which I had finally gotten around to watching in its entirely.  I’d recommend this talk, in particular, to all!

If people want to figure it out, this is a great jumping-off point.  May it become your tipping-point!
