I am disappointed that the Greenfield City Council succumbed to the bullying rabble that demands we all stick our noses in the middle of a thousands of years blood feud between Israelis and Arabs.

Since I don’t have any investment in the military industrial complex, I’m inclined to avoid a conflict that probably never ends. My father served in the U.S. Army Air Corps in North Africa during World War II, and he told me when I was a young lad that we should never become involved in what he called a family feud in the Middle East that is similar to cousins fighting over the estate.

He also told me to never try to be a hero and break up a bar fight because chances are you’ll get punched in the nose. He was pretty smart. A lot smarter than the bullying rabble.
