Subject: RE: BS: Caliphate
Some folks say that views on the Israel-Hamas issue has nothing to do with anyone having anti-jewish vuews.
Then there us a suggestion that news from someone with a Jewish sounding name is suspect as being biased, or grounds alone for it not being reliable?


Should, or can, we have it both ways?

Like with many folks worldwide, because of name changes, history, sharing of names worldwide etc., it would be an inexact exercise to guess at ones ethnic or religious background, or political beliefs, from their names alone.
