(7) it is hypocritical to apply a different standard of criticism to Israel than is applied to other democratic nation-states that also incorporate their national character in their laws and constitutions.

(5) Many other democratic nations have laws that reflect their national character, but only Israel is criticized for doing so in its basic laws.

(4) Because it is the nation-state of the Jewish people, it’s national symbols, holidays and language reflect its character. Because of the tragic history of the Jewish people during the Shoah, it rightly has a law of return for Jews (broadly defined)

(2) Zionism has long been the national liberation movement of the Jewish people that culminated in the establishment of Israel 70 years ago with its brilliantly articulated Declaration of independent statehood for the Jewish people and their new national homeland.

(1) Israel is and must always remain the democratic nation-state of the Jewish people which accords equal rights to all of its citizens. The history of the Jewish people justifies—indeed demands—that there be one state that manifests the national aspirations of the Jewish people.

Don’t try to persuade me. You may have to persuade the ethics committee.

You deliberately left out other network and media. You also conflated Fox News and Fox Business. I think I’m the only commentator who regularly appears on so many diverse media outlets.

I can’t control how people use my words. I sleep well knowing that everything I say is based on principles I’ve espoused for nearly 60 years.

I’m on MSNBC, CNN and other networks much more often than on Fox. I want my views heard across the political spectrum, whether or not I agree with hosts.

We will see how the ethics committee interprets the rule. You should not have asked a represented person to join with you in going after Trump. You should have spoken through his lawyer.

My questions to aren’t personal. They’re professional: did you initiate a conversation with Cohen without authorization from his lawyer? Are you aware this may violate ethical rules? Please answer without getting personal.
