Looking through my page for a link I posted a few months ago and saw these quotes. Everyone should read this long essay.
I just ate at least a pound and a half of wineberries. I swear that these insanely invasive, everywhere-you-look-they’re-there berries are the single best tasting thing that comes out of the ground.
If only there were wild avocados in New Jersey. My life would be complete.

Glenn Greenwald ( http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/apr/03/sam-harris-muslim-animus )
—————Sam Harris on Israel, from The End of Faith: “Judaism is as intrinsically divisive, as ridiculous in its literalism, and as at odds with the civilizing insights of modernity as any other religion. Jewish settlers, by exercising their ‘freedom of belief’ on contested land, are now one of the principal obstacles to peace in the Middle East.”
Also from The End of Faith: “Christian ‘support for Israel’ is, in fact, an example of religious cynicism so transcendental as to go almost unnoticed in our political discourse. Fundamentalist Christians support Israel because they believe that the final consolidation of Jewish power in the holy land—specifically the rebuilding of Solomon’s temple—will usher in both the second coming of Christ and the final destruction of the Jews.”
But Glenn Greenwald would never participate in any kind of “quote mining” and is certainly not a complete fucking moron. (He is)
