I understand that I/P essays aren’t banned, but having to get them approved is almost as bad. I’m sure Buhdy doesn’t want to be in the position of having to approve or reject essay content, and I don’t think any posters here like the idea of having to submit an essay for approval.

Quotes from Jewish Voice for Peace letter asking that we take a stand
We ask you to heed the words of Elie Wiesel who said, “We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”
Sign our open letter to the leaders of the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center- Foxman, Harris and Hier:
You must speak out.

You can find the letter at the Jewish Voice for Peace website if you care to look.
