Jewish History: A Glob of Snot?

Over at Biblical Theology Jim West critiques an article at IsraelInsider, which argues against Palestinian attepts to deny Jewish/Israeli historical ties to the land of Israel, by calling it a "Glob of Snot." As ever, Jim's professionalism absolutely astounds me.

West's blog is not worth reading; I've stopped looking at it altogether.

I'm seeing that more and more. Honestly I don't know why I've kept reading it as long as I have. I think you have the right idea.

I will defend West. I like him. He is outspoken like me and my brother. I will not denounce him. I understand now. He has my vote.

Trust me, Oly, its not Jim's outspokeness that I have issues with. But I'm not asking anyone to "denounce" him or anyone else. We're all free to read or not read whatever we like. I personally don't feel his blog is worth my time anymore.
