I really am not the 'meeting type'.
In other words, at the sound of tone, please send me an e-mail!!
I am frequently asked to come to meetings or to participate in conferences, but I always tell people that they can have (some of) my time but sorry-not my body. Now don't go thinking all silly dirty. Basically, I don't have time or the zitzfleisch sit around and beg G-d for people to get to the freaking point. Ideas are a dime a dozen. I like sharing ideas. But basically, I really wouldn't want to be a part of any club that would have me as a member.
Scaramouche, silly gal that she is, decided to go to an all day (UGH) conference on Israel and was unfortunately subject to YET ANOTHER meltdown by Tarek Fatah-who has been regularly feted on the Jewish cocktail circuit for his bravery in confronting Islamic antisemitism. Blogrwath has more here.
My own assessment-and I would say this to Mr. Fatah's face if we had the chance to discuss it in person, is that he is animated primarily by socialism (self-confessed) and his anti-clerical stance, and not by any love for the Jews and certainly not for Israel.
The rest is commentary.
