The Pilot’s frequent “Letters” writer Bill Rose is a fine Christian gentleman who loves to push the progressive, anti-Trump envelope. All who know Bill respect him immensely.

Sometimes he is right on in his observations; other times, he goes too far. A case in point of the latter is his recent letter “Trouble With Israel” in which he urges that the U.S. stop all aid to Israel because of its failure to welcome a visit by two U.S. Congresspersons who advocate that nation’s destruction.

Once again Dan, you didn't say anything of substance. As a matter of "fact" your comment is still just a childish denial of observable facts and ad hominem. You should make up your mind as to whether I have been "promoted" or I self promoted. (I just read your comment again. It makes no sense whatsoever.) Here is an assignment for you: Find out how many unarmed Palestinians have been killed or wounded since the Great March of Return started and how many IDF soldiers have been killed or wounded. Are you following the Israeli elections. One guy wants to steal more land and the other guy wants to blow Gaza into the stone age. They are trying to out do one another as to how vicious they can be much like our current government is doing on the border. The difference is they, the Israeli's, said what the heck, we'll just shoot them whereas we, except for a few occasions, haven't gone quite that far.

You say, "he goes too far." That's your argument? I'm going to give this paper points for giving you a compassionate pat on the head and printing your contribution. If you would like to consider other objections to subsidizing Israel's apartheid government we could consider Netanyahu's promise to illegally annex more of the West Bank if he is re-elected by his zionist backers. Or we could discuss the hundreds of children murdered or wounded by IDF goons; or the thousands of unarmed adults murdered or wounded by the cowardly IDF goons during the last few month's March of Return. There is more to be considered if you would like to engage. Most won't. It is safer to stick to the party lie, dem or repub, than to have an open, honest discussion, of observable facts. One fact being: Your money is being used to murder children. Lots of children.

That is the singularly most union formed, biased, factually inaccurate opinion that has ever appeared in The Pilot. It would be hate speech if it wasn't just totally silly.

I won't disparage those who spout this kind of "fake news" propaganda & for those who do disparage means insult.

You just stick your tongue out at me Dan.

Ken has apparently been promoted. Now the (self appointed?) Chief of the Propaganda Ministry for either Iran, the "Palestinians, (whatever they are) or the American Nazi Party. Likely the latter since he seems to like the "big lie" practice of Josef Goebbels, tell a large enough lie loud and often enough and a certain percentage of people will believe it, because, after all, who would say something totally false, often and loudly, if it weren't true. Keep pumping out the lies Ken, we know you for what you are.
