Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

more holiday reading...

Another book I haven't read yet but which looks like a "must read" is The Other Israel: Voices of refusal and dissent by Tom Segev, Jonathan Shainin, Roane Carey.

This from Amazon's website:
The Other Israel is an urgent and passionate intervention by Israeli citizens challenging the continued occupation of Palestinian territory and the failed policies of Ariel Sharon’s government. Against a backdrop of increasing violence on both sides, the book presents a broad range of dissenting voices that articulate practical, legal, and moral objections to the occupation. Written from within the throes of the unfolding tragedy, it includes contributions from journalists, novelists, activists, military reservists, and former government officials. MORE >>>

NoNoNoNoNo, Fox. You're not getting it yet. YOU'RE supposed to rush out and buy these books I recommend, then you're supposed to post a wonderful blog item about it, thanking me for steering you towards it, and then you're supposed top mail me your copy so that I can read it too, and take good care of it for you on my bookshelf. THAT'S how it works...
