    I, on the other hand, am happy that Henry has taken the trouble to reveal to us all who this guy really is.
    The issue is rather with Messrs Limud. They are the ones giving solid oxygen to this oxymoron.

    One wonders how certain minds acquire similar features. The repulsive NIF mode of reason and expression seems so identical with each loser taking the soap box in its favour. They all use the same mental mechanism, same phraseology , completely oblivious to their own failure to attract any degree of respect from the vast majority of their audience, the Jewish community at large.
    Noticed how most of the NIF leaders are “have-beens” people who no longer hold any communal positions of general choice, all redundant and frustrated !!
    This bloke is a writer…..and he WAS something some time ago, these days writes maybe once a month for a low grade publication while spruiking something he concocted in the shape of a book. Rather sad.

    Henry, I also query why you are giving this guy ‘oxygen’

    I’m sick to the put of my stomach with him and others like him, which those of the ‘loony left” are shoving down our throats.

    A person who thinks that “Israeli Democracy” is broken. If its broken why is he here? Surely it’s best to fix the problem at the source, namely in Israel.

    A person who’s a huge J Street fan and spoke at their conference last year – one such talk was about his book “The Unmaking of Israel”

    It would be interesting to hear what Gorenberg thinks of the NIFs role in funding the false and highly damaging “apartheid poll”, as well as their other contributions to demonisation and hatred of Israel.

    The NIF obviously has money to burn, but soon they will run out of options as to which Community Organisation they can dupe into hiring their halls to them.

    How smug is this guy??

    Everyone who speaks about Israel has a sales pitch, everyone except him apparently.

    So now we are into the NIF soft sell – say nothing, but smile.

    Well nothing other than anyone who speaks about Israel from a positive viewpoint is just a salesman.

    Henry – wasted 5 minutes of my time on an interview you did with a guy who basically said nothing, but in a nice way.
