Thank you, Professor Khaled Furani.
What a great piece of writing! Bravo!

I am profoundly disheartened as a Stanford faculty member to see any sense of sobriety and evenhandedness absent from this series of blogs. I leave you, the interested reader, with these words from Amos Oz, certainly no right-winger, who opened his interview with Deutsche Welle in this manner:

Amoz Oz: I would like to begin the interview in a very unusual way: by presenting one or two questions to your readers and listeners. May I do that?

Deutsche Welle: Go ahead!

Question 1: What would you do if your neighbor across the street sits down on the balcony, puts his little boy on his lap and starts shooting machine gun fire into your nursery?

Question 2: What would you do if your neighbor across the street digs a tunnel from his nursery to your nursery in order to blow up your home or in order to kidnap your family?

With these two questions I pass the interview to you.
