I'm not generally one who sends in comments; no tweeting, fb etc. But I had to take the time to thank you personally for airing the talk by Alison Weir on Zionism & the US. OMG! It was the best, most comprehensive, informative piece I've ever heard! It helped to make sense of the chaos in the world today! I thank you for your work. May you enjoy strength and means to continue. Peace
