Dual Loyalty Comments of the Day

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach published an article about his daughter fighting in the Israeli army. Naturally this caused heads to explode all around the Huffington Post in a spectacular and hilarious fashion. For the sake of brevity we won't show you everything but I did think it was interesting how quickly so many picked up the tired old anti-Semitic canard of "dual loyalty," as if Jews were the only people to ever travel abroad and fight for something they believed in.


  1. I'm sure you meant to say "fighting for the Israeli army."

  2. More moderator approved antisemitism

  3. Has anyone ever compiled a list of HP moderators so that they can be targeted specifically?

    1. I'm not a fan of your use of the word "targeted" but if you want to email the Huffington Post moderators try the Contact page. They have historically been decent about writing back.


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.
