I will never buy or just read Time magazine. All honest people should do too.

they are so disgusting it is unimagineable. ought to be ashamed but people like this never are

The majority of people with whom I talk about Israel are very PRO Israel and I've had a few tell me they will never buy ANY Time product including their cable TV and anything else Time produces such as their videos and books.
