I have received a private message which i intend on making public
from a gather memeber who is on my connection list! Scott C.
He had written a comment to a poem i wrote about how i feel about the holocaust that made it seem insignificant, he went on to write that the jewish people have never had a homeland,,lets us deny the bibel while we are at it and history, Jerusalem does not exist,
Then he went on to put down zionism, and finally he wrote me a private message.
I had challenged his theory that jews are nomads by reminding him that jews were sent to exile after their land had been conquered two times and have returned again and again.
I reminded Scott C. of his ignorance about Jewish history and the central role israel plays in the jewish religion, Jews have mentioned Jerusalem and the land of Israel in every prayer while at exile, and i challenged him further asking him as he comes from canada, where his family came from, after all he threw a stone, let him exemine his glass house..was he an eskimo or a native to his land?
The answer ended with an antisemitic name :kike.
Gather people while we argue about moslems, jews, christians and sometimes get on the edge of politically correct, this remark went too far.
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR RACIST REMARKS¨
Ï CALL FOR ZERO TOLERANCE TO SUCH NAME CALLING
IT STOPS NOW¨
I AM SHOCKED THAT THIS MAN IS A PARENT,
AND FEEL A DEEP SORROW HE IS SO BLIND WITH HATE
THIS IS NOT APOLITICAL DISCUSSION THIS IS RACISM ,
AND I FOR ONE WILL ERASE HIM OFF MY CONTACT LIST AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE HIM LEAVE GATHER FOR THIS RACIST REMARK
