How We Talk About Things

I just had an online discussion with a blogger I usually appreciate for her sharp sense and her critical mind. She posted a picture of a far right politician dressed up as a Bedouin and related Bedouins to Israel among others. I contacted her and asked her not to describe Bedouins of that region as Israelis, but as Palestinians, which they are. It was her right to consider my critics as small minded. Maybe it is.
