Nick, by now you should realise that if I were anti-semitic,
there would be nothing thinly-veiled about it.

Thank you for drawing attention to my blog (in which I am
completely open as to my identity, BTW).

I implore people to read it, and pay attention to how the state
of Israel is conducting a genocidal policy against the
Palestinians just as the NAZI's did against the Jews in WWII,
just more slowly and with less international condemnation.

My issue is not with the Jewish people, but with the state of
Israel, which anyone with a reasonable level of comprehension
can see for themselves by reading the blog.

Your thinly veiled insinuation is offensive and trivialises the
real issue which is the subject of the blog. I suppose that it
is better than whispering behind my back as you have been for
some years now like a snot-nosed kid.

While I have your attention, perhaps you would now take the
opportunity to reveal the real story of 'Peter' and 'Jenny' and
the toll-booth. I found the marginal comment at p.37 of DEFE24-
2091-1 quite enlightening, where one of your 'MoD chums' wrote:

"A great pity that a more permanent abduction by aliens cannot
be arranged. I'm not surprised that they didn't want to keep

This appears to be in the context of the publication of "Open
Skies, Closed Minds".

You are also quoted in "The X-Files Book of the Unexplained"
(1995, prior to publication of OSCM) as saying:

"You could say that, like Fox Mulder, my interest is not purely
an academic one and I'm driven by some more personal
motivations. My primary motivation is the intellectual belief
that there is a genuine unknown phenomenon, and my belief in the
people's right to know, but a part of my motivation is a desire
to explain some anomalous events in my own past..."

"...The very furthest I would want to go is to say that there
are some events in my past which some people in the UFO lobby
would say are some of the factors that are present in cases of
abduction. But I want to stay on the fence until I know what
happened to me."

Do you still believe in the "people's right to know"? If your
reported scaling-down of participation in ufology is accurate,
now would be a good time to spill the beans.
