Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Woman: Why do I hate certain things? Man: People fear those things they don't understand and fear breeds hate ... Why do you look at me that way? Woman: Because I hate what you just said! Man: But why? Woman: Because I don't understand it! Quotation from Mad's Dave Berg. We will explore the verbal attacks on Israel and their rhetorical fallacies, as well as pro-Israel countermeasures. Current examples will be discussed to better understand the rhetoric and the reality.
