Or it inflames and pushes buttons because its based on false information.
I am very passionate about people calling me a disinfo-agent for nothing other than presenting hard facts.
Now you feel free to call me what ever you want.
I`ll call you a Led Zeppelin fan if I may.

Well when one considers the scant historical non-religious, original records and the traditional foundation of the religion that is often evoked to
substantiate such claims as being one that still to this day only a small council of Elders know all the details and only pass them to their
individual successor orally, I would say so much has been fabricated or omitted as to make not only patently false but comical when the debate reverts
back to “well we have a contract with G-d” that it always reverts back to, when serious debate is presented.
As far as presenting ‘Hard’ facts resulting in your exception of being called a disinformation agent by some…the key word is “Hard” as in
hard to swallow. Truth is just such a subjective thing based upon a person’s perspective and agendas.
As I said in my original reply Dead Men Tell No Tales, but live men will retell and reword and rewrite them so many times to suit their perspective
and agenda that they do become “Hard” to swallow facts.
That someone who is politically or religiously or racially or economically inclined to accept that is “Hardly” surprising, neither though should
anyone’s individual reluctance to accept them when they don’t share that same propensity and inclination towards that same religion, race,
economic or political goal.
The fact is you like I weren’t there to bear witness to it, and you like I simply believe what we want to believe.
Does it make you wrong? No, but neither does it makes you right. It makes you passionate about what you believe in, which is what makes you
exploitable to individuals who want to manipulate you and brand you with a label.
Because I did not personally bear witness to much of history that’s been distorted by the conquerors to legitimize the acquisitions of their spoils
I have to suspend judgment. I don’t feel particularly qualified to present anything as fact, nor do I believe any particular author of any book
that wasn’t there either to bear witness is any more qualified to render undisputed “Hard” facts, that some people are in fact so quick to adopt
because it does validate or promote their political, religious, economic or racial agenda.
That is why these “Hard” facts are so passionately disputed.
If I had to label you it wouldn’t be anti-Arab, or anti-Gentile or pro-Zionist or pro-Israel, rather I would just label you as something far more
neutral and general.
That word would be passionate.
Unfortunately passionate does not always come with the prequalifying Com-passionate.
Relationships only succeed when all parties are willing to compromise wisely and with compassion.
So my personal opinion which is pretty much the same as a “Hard” fact is people should be working on compassion and not fabricating, twisting,
usurping, distorting or omitting in the way that leads to “Hard” facts and overly passionate, not compassionate displays of attempting to convince
others that “Hard” facts are in fact, facts.
The facts will speak for themselves. They often do, which is why passionate people promoting causes and agendas then come up with “Hard” facts.
The fact is people in the Middle East have such a hard time getting along they insist the rest of the world take a side.
It’s a serious lack of compassion.
For each other and everyone else who gets dragged into it, because you can never be pro one side with out being labeled anti something by the other
The importance of compassion is something I learned from Led Zeppelin songs, not G-d even though the scriptures of all three of the cults the Hebrew
beliefs led to preach compassion.
This is why I feel it is important for the United States Congress to award me Venezuela
To establish a nation for Led Zeppelin fans!
Why? Obviously Led Zeppelin does a better job at teaching compassion than the mystery deity in the mystery scriptures that half the world is fighting
Since the three cults can never completely agree and do nothing but fight over it, I say lets not turn to G-d as Jews, Christians, and Muslims all
declare we should.
Let’s turn to Led Zeppelin!
Yes you can certainly call me a Led Zeppelin fan as I am, I would be much more pleased and honored despite differences of opinion regarding “Hard”
fact if you would be so inclined to call me friend. My compassion for you and everyone wishes you and everyone would be my friend.
