In addressing Mr. Devolin’s letter to the editor one must first emphasize that it is not only illogical but quite absurd. For those that don’t see it, allow me to point it out.

It is common practice for Zionist students at FAU to comment on SJP’s mock Israeli Apartheid Wall by referring to it as a “security fence,” claiming that the term “wall” is misleading and incorrect. Such tired propaganda was negated in July of 2004 when the International... Read more »
