תקראו לי קיצוני מניאק, אבל לדעתי אנחנו צריכים "לפוצץ" את זה ולהוציא החוצה את
המידע הזה. השכנים שלנו עשו תרגיל מלוכלך בכך שהם אוסרים עליו לבצע פעולות
נוספות בזמנו החופשי, ואני חושב שאנחנו לא צריכים להסתיר את זה, במיוחד כאשר
מדובר בהרצאות שנקבעו במקומות יוקרתיים ואנשים תכננו את לוח הזמנים שלהם בהתאם.

(מי שמכיר אותי יודע שאני לא קיצוני ואין לי שום דבר אישי נגד פלסטינים או
ערבים בכלל)
