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 him". 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. Regards, Joe Listen to 'Strange Days...
