As to the Ozzies, well the American Press never called him the "swish bish".
But when it comes to "discussion" Americans tend to be among the most
happily antagonistic arguers. Now no one can equal the Israelis, all one has
to do is watch a televised session of the Knesset and one sees folks who
really LOVE to argue! A Jewish friend of mine told me that's because
"whenever you have two Jews you have AT LEAST three opinions!"
That's why I  like them so much, you can never really get too mad at someone
who always says "But, on the other hand"! That's what's wrong with Core
Theosophists they NEVER say that.
