Not looking for approval, as I am sure you know. It is relevant, if one considers that if we are to respect, or hold in high regards the opinion of an individual based on something that they referenced that we may be in agreement with; it may also be necessary to respect an individual 'right' to have an opinion with which we may not agree.
For example, the author made valid points in regards to Zionism. In another piece of literature he published, he indicated that he supported Obama, but voted for Bush in the past. Does the fact that he did (does) both of those things make his points on Zionism less valid? If so why, if not why not?
