I'm all for a bit of Israel bashing (they deserve it) - but given how surprisingly widespread anti-semitism still is, I'm not surprised Mr Kite was a bit worried by talk of 'the stench of AIPAC' - especially given the history of claims that the Jews are behind it all.
I don't think JPV is an anti-semite, and it would have been totally unfair to accuse him of being one based upon the posting of an article, but Mr.Kite only mentioned a 'tone'. Maybe it was a little blunt and unnecessary... but this whole thread has been pretty weird imo.
edit: typed too slow.
Exactly, thank you. I was very careful in fact not to call anyone an anti-semite. I'm not even sure what AIPAC and allegedly Mossad has to do with a discussion about XMRV anyway. The comments and link seemed to be more in response to the mention of WikiLeaks, which I only brought up to refer to the PR aspect in the first place. When the response to that is a link to a story about the "stench" of a pro-Israel group, it's not surprising that the tone of the entire thing would come across the way it did. It has nothing to do with XMRV that I can see.
