Come for the Banter; Stay for the Bullshit
A few weeks ago, prominent author and skeptic Sam Harris, recorded a podcast entitled "Why Don't I Criticize Israel?" wherein Harris made a case for Israel as a state and tried to preemptively attack some claims made by modern critics of Israel.
Quick update: within the next few days I will be posting a response to Sam Harris' commentary "Why Don't I Criticize Israel?". I suggest you all read/listen to the podcast (it's 15 minutes) because my reply will make more sense.
This is a post I've been putting of writing for a while now because I didn't really know how to start it and, although I'm not confident, I'll give you what I have.
