Hi all,

I recently heard Harris’ 2014 Podcast titled “Why Don’t I Criticize Israel?”  It’s fair to say that every substantive statement in it is false.  It made me so mad that I started a blog to debunk his myths and show that he doesn’t know Middle East politics.  Please have a look and leave some feedback for me if you get a chance.

All best,

I didn’t read the whole thing, as I’m familiar with the facts.  What I read was well thought out, though.

Are you talking about what I wrote or what Sam Harris said?

I read the first bit as well and agree with lynmc.  The errors made by Sam Harris on this topic have never been revised, so many of his followers tend to recite the same mistakes by rote.  A very unfortunate and dangerous thing, really.

Thank you for the feedback.  I agree that what Harris has said is dangerous.  Palestinians’ lives are literally saved and lost based on what Americans believe.
