23. I wasn't referring to the attack on the aid convoys

I was lamenting yet another thread of DU'ers at each others throats over the Israel-Palestine issue.

"Food fight" was the metaphor I chose to describe the endless, sloppy, antagonistic verbal combat among DU subscribers in threads on this topic.

In hindsight I now see how this could be confused with insensitive commentary on the original subject of the news story. But, I was actually referring to the chaotic fighting among DU members.
