Dear All,

Whatever this list is for, it cannot possibly be for attacking each other over
issues such as whether the Palestinians are greater baby-killers than the 
Israelis or vice versa, or whether one religion has done more harm than another.
There are ways of discussing politics that are aimed at, and have the 
potential of, mutually opening the discutants' minds, and there are ways 
that cannot but provoke a knee-jerk response on the part of anybody who does 
not hold the view that is being stated.  The second kind of discussion can only
be injurious to this list.  I propose that if you want to say something that
is likely to provoke an angry, knee-jerk reaction from those who don't think 
the same way, don't say it here.


-malgosia, your co-moderator
