I can't finish reading it. I'm tired of the political war more so than the physical one. People on both sides of this war have hyped up why it is that this war is "really" happening, yet everyone's view is biased. The Christians support Israel because of the mandates laid out in the Bible. The Jews support Israels efforts because Israel is "their" holy city. Musilims support hizbullah because "their cause is righteous". Media puts Israel in a victim/hero light because it is good for ratings. The list goes on... I'm tired of listening to all the ranting and politics. I'd much rather read your articles and blurbs as they are much more intelligent and offer something fresh to think about.... Ok, I'm done :P

I get what you mean, I just find the discussion or notion of nation building myth stemming from the power of language fascinating. There's this whole academic field at the moment of the politics of language and language and power relations. Move over Foucault...

And thanks for the vote of confidence :)
