Dear Na'eem Jeenah ,
Delighted to see that you have a blog on The M&G's "Thought Leader". It really shows that The Freedom of Expression Institute is not just a front for The Palestine Solidarity Committee but is, when you come to think of it, nothing less than a true guardian of freedom of expression in South Africa.
p.s I attach some of my comments and doubt that you will have enough freedom of expression/ guts to reply.
Your comment is awaiting moderation.
On cacti and keys; memory and forgetfulness
What I really admire about you is the way that you so brilliantly combine your roles as spokesperson for The Palestine Solidarity Committee and Director of The Freedom of Expression Institute (FXI). Many people in your positions would end up sullying the reputation of The FXI. However, you have only served to enhance it.
How do you manage to retain such credibilty ?
Is it because you were breast-fed The Truth ?

” PS: Like all my other posts on Thought Leader, this one does not purport to represent the views of the Freedom of Expression Institute and the FXI does not necessarily agree with any of what I have said here.”
Your post deals with freedom of expression issues. Do you hold different views when you walk into The FXI’s office ?
Why on earth wouldn’t The FXI agree? You are the Director of The FXI !
Surely you can agree with yourself ? If you can’t agree with yourself, you should perhaps seek help?

What do you think about the recent Hamas attack on the Arafat demo in Gaza? It led to many deaths and much bloodshed.
“To insist that one cannot hear the voice of the oppressed unless one also hears the voice of the oppressor is, at best, cowardly acquiescence and, at worst, collaboration with oppression.”
Were the demonstrators murdered?
Are you a “coward” who “at worst is collaborating with Hamas oppression”?
