Letter to Israel regarding the Temple Mount from the right side of my brain
Dear Israel, If you won’t listen to Isaiah, or to the Israeli police, will you at least listen to Tom Petty? The other night I watched the Netflix documentary, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Runnin’ Down a Dream. The documentary...

Open letter to Linda Sarsour
