MJ Rosenberg Tries to Pull A Fast One

In the thread of his latest article, MJ Rosenberg has published a comment. Read it quickly and see what your reaction is:

He contrasts a recent terrorist attack with what sounds like another "horrific slaughter" and demands to know why every other pro-Israel person except for him hasn't spoken about it. I don't know about you, but my reaction was "What? There has been more fighting in Gaza? Let me find out more information."

It turns out that his link is to an op-ed by Gideon Levy published more than two years ago. And the subject is none other than Cast Lead, which was discussed a million times when it actually happened and pretty much ever since.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems pretty dishonest for Mr. Rosenberg to try and contrast something that happened so long ago with another event that happened last week. His overall point might be reasonable, but in execution he comes off sounding like a scam artist who was hoping no one would read his link.

    Since when is MJ Rosenberg synonymous with truth?
    I've always thought he was more synonymous with deceit.

  2. The moral equivalence is low for him. Israel did not decide to attack Gaza one morning. Arab terrorists targeted a family over a week ago because it was Jewish. There's an entire world of factual and moral difference there. Which seems to be lost on the likes of good ol' MJ Rosenberg!

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
