Simcha-Joe Zias case

Dorothy King has reminded me of that Joe Zias "libel" case. Like her, I wonder why so few archaeologists are speaking out about it. Are they all wimps who'll not say anything a smidgen critical of anyone these days? Is that why they cannot face the plunderers of the past?

The purpose of these law suits is in the words of the Scientologists, not to win, but to sue, make peoples lives miserable at all costs. Its a familiar tactic used by the rich and powerful to silence freedom of expression at any costs. What we are seeing here is the 'silencing effect, to put the fear of god into critics. sometimes is works, when the profession will ever take the courage to stand up to the BAR Crowd it will cease.
