    The diarist is sharing the content of a documentary -- one that will be widely discussed.

    It's unfair to threaten banning because you don't like the topic, or don't accept any real criticism toward Israeli policy.

      Don't make assumptions about people.

      The diary contains some material that is considered unacceptable on this site.  Not my rules.

        and trying to shut down discussion with references to your own family's experience.

        I'm usually offended by Nazi analogies -- they are lazy. But in this case, the diarist is quoting an individual who knows a lot more than I do, and has a legitimate opinion. The diarist's opinion is also legitimate. Worth a debate -- not HRing, which is another form of bullying.

          not sure what you're talking about?

          shutting down discussion?  not sure what that's all about, but...
