Good lord, I've run into unreasoning prejudice from well-educated, extremely
(apparently) well-educated people, if said fascist's claims were true!  (BA,
MA in history, Postgrad in Neuroscience; bigoted as hell.)

I did however, get the said fascist kicked off the newsgroup she unwittingly
led me to, when she confused an incident in Jenin with an incident in Bureij,
and she & cohorts responded by abusing me when I pointed that out.  By that
time everybody was sick of her ...

So much for her skills of critical analysis and good education, etc ...
bigotry has no home, except with those who make that choice.

(Of course, if her abuse was true, I should be renaming myself Asmodeus or
Arioch ... ;)
