It’s a tad irregular given that one ought to be an American, however, I’m prepared, even in Ellul, to be found guilty of the עבירה of parading as an American. God only knows it will be nothing compared to the big ones he will judge me on.

Accordingly, I would have no hesitation in asking each and every one of you to please do likewise by clicking here, after which it would also be great if you could pass this onto others by simply clicking one of the options near Share this: attached to the end of this blog post.

Whatever he did, he did, but the punishment meted out is just way over the top.
