A Response to Uri Avnery

Taken for a Ride by the Israeli Left

by STEVEN FRIEDMAN And VIRGINIA TILLEY


Article removed.

In readying this piece for our website the editors removed a few phrases from Friedman and Tilley’s criticisms of Avnery, a respected, long-time contributor to CounterPunch. Though the elision of these few words in no way affected the substance of the piece the authors claim their meaning was changed and that the changes were unacceptable to them. So we have taken the piece down. AC/JSC.
