“Lately a flood of antisemitic invective has been triggered by the ranting of a stupid attention-seeking fool we all know. I want to say I stand with my Jewish friends and I stand with the state of Israel. When this kind of thing happens we should realize why the state of Israel must be respected and protected.

I lived off and on in Israel from 1978 to 1982 and grew to love the country and the people. Living there changed my life forever.”

– Don McLean
