    Again, you did it! I am only today catching up on my reading, and that included your most recent CP column. So very well-done and hard hitting. I copied and forwarded to friends, former colleagues, and many across the globe. Keep on keeping on, Friend.

    Dear Dr Suzy (if I may) —
    “self-hating Jew”
    Yours in Counterpunch is the very best, indeed the only, comprehensive takedown of that viciously mendacious trope that I’ve ever seen. Thank you so very much!!
    All best wishes,

    Your “reply” embodies concisely, most of the major arguments against USA policy; and a spirited defense of the glorious youth, who, tho under no threat of draft (the animus of my generation in 60’s), manage to see this- the central issue of our time— to risk grades, graduation, careers—to try and arrest a blatant genocide.

    These kids are the only sign of hope in a bleak, heartless landscape of indifference and prejudice.
    The Jewish students are particularly stalwart, given the hesitation of any minority to engage in a civil internal conflict.

    The animus, gumption, integrity, and pure fire
    Of your prose suit and match the drastic situation
    And meet it head on.

    I only wish I could congratulate u personally on a tour-de- force seldom seen in the craven modern mealy- mouth media environment of now.

    My heartiest salut to a lady who speaks with recondite brass gonads !!! ( authentic bonobo). Your spine is your most felicitous feature— may u always keep it.

    Congratulations on a clarification only your unique experience could produce ; one that indeed, lights the whole world !!

    She, certainly, is not a self-hating #Jew – then who are the self-hating Jews!?
    The first thought that raced through my mind after reading an honest and eloquently written article titled ‘Replying to a #Zionist troll’ by Dr. Suzy was that the “arrogant, bombastic Zionists like #Bibi” should be the number one candidate requiring a sex therapy – or is he too afflicted, hardened and impossible to be cured – using Bonobo Way namely ‘evolution of peace through pleasure’, I am herewith taking the liberty to quote some of the valuable quotes from the article that are certainly worth quoting – and please do pause for a deeper thought:
    – “It seems to me that the true “self-hating Jews” among us are the #Zionists.”
    – “The religo-Zionist world-view, that they are “chosen” by God, strikes me as a vain effort to compensate for this nagging, unflagging, self-hating, inferiority complex…” and on it goes at https://x.com/JavedJaved48/status/1791505568621875367

    Dear Dr. Suzy,

    Thanks for “Reply to a Zionist Troll”!

    I just read your essay on counterpunch.org, and I appreciated your every word.

    Long ago I read and responded to codepink.org’s info e-mailbox, and WOW, did we get a lot of hate mail, especially right after Medea Benjamin appeared on Fox! I wrote an essay about hate mail/speech, which was published on codepink.org’s Pink Tank. You may enjoy it, as I enjoyed the humor and astuteness in your piece: https://www.codepink.org/inspiration_for_your_friday_de_llifvu7ldrj895b8fjcqqzpe

    After some months, I began to regard The Spew in a different way: as a teaching. I recognized the absolute ineffectiveness of these emails, their unpersuasive, predictable emptiness. I also thought about my own uses of language when angry, and how examining this is central to peace work. And more. I began to “hear” the emails as voices raised in a collective wail of frustration: “I’m so unhappy, so angry, so confused, so at the mercy of my own feelings – help me, listen to me, make it better!”

    May the haters learn, and may the love increase,
    Janet Weil

    Brava! Bravissima! You have delivered a stunning aria, Diva Stupenda! A masterpiece.The audience rises to its feet, stomps the floor, throws flowers onstage and demands as many curtain calls as the number of plays written by the bard himself!

    Weepin’ Jayzuz on the Crossfire, you made my day, Mz Susan!

    Your faithful reader,

    Sensational sapiosexual show, letter, music, laughter, tears, self-love (not self-hate) tips – everything! And I still hope someday You will spank me like Stormy spanked tRump!

    Powerhouse show, Dr. Block, and what a brilliant moving letter to that ignorant Zionist (maybe it’ll push her to the other side) & excellent explanation of how Stormy Daniels spanking tRumpy Dumpty is a kink for our times.

    This is an amazing show, it’s educational, informative and brings to light important topics. Dr Suzy’s reply to the troll is brilliant and heartfelt… METAs shutting down any user is a level of censorship I’m concerned about…The Stormy Daniels article in the Mirror is brilliant, another great analysis – And let’s all have a merry masturbation month!!!

    Amazing show. Dr. Suzy’s response to her Zionist hate mail is commendable. To me, killing in God’s name acquires the kind of karma you can never get rid of. The IDF can NEVER get the job done, because the Palestinians and their children will NEVER go completely away. What a lovingly poignant rebuttal to the hatred emailed to Dr. Suzy, a nice way to promote some rational thoughts on this touchy issue.

    Great job shaming the shamer! It’s insane how the immoral pretend to be on the side of Right. I agree with your philosophy, War is not the answer. And it is shameful that anyone Jew who opposes the War in Gaza is labeled as a “Self Hating Jew” when in reality they are demonstrating they are a “Life Loving Jew”.

    Keep doing what you are doing

    Dr. Block, your letter to that cretinous Zionist is brillliant and hard-hitting but also very empathetic – I need to use some of this at my next family gathering/Jewish Civil War skirmish.

    Great show, and wow, what a fine interview with you in the Mirror. I really respect the journalist for quoting you correctly. Also, I feel like I’m Maria on the show squealing, “I know her!” Glad to know you! Keep up the great sex education! We need it.

    Thank you Dr. Suzy and Captain Max for your insight on this horrific plague that is tearing our world apart. Ethnic cleansing is something we should all be fighting against as brothers and sisters. Powerful show!
