FYI, Sam had a falling out with "Not George Sabra" over his 
"disseminating a racist, pro-Israel article written by Aboud Dandachi, 
basically slandering all those who marched in solidarity with Gaza as 
anti-semites and Nazis, with a particularly racist emphasis on Arabs and 
Muslims who were protesting", as he put it to me. I really don't pay any 
attention to "Not George Sabra" and didn't think that Andy's outrage was 
called for since our old friend adopted a sock puppet identity and 
evolved into a contrarian crank.
