The Huffington Post Radicalizes Again

In the wake of their posting a video of Norman Finkelstein a few weeks ago, now the Huffington Post has published a whole article by him:

The article itself is an excerpt from his latest book about why American Jews and Israel are no longer getting along like they used to.

Now one can't help but wonder why the Huffington Post feels that Norman Finkelstein is someone worth their attention. After all, it's not like he holds a professorship or has any kind of credentials besides being radically anti-Israel. Never mind, I guess I answered my own question.

Also you may notice that the Huffington Post has yet to cover Finkelsteins' opinions on the BDSers, even though they usually can't get enough stories about Israel boycotters.

Nor does the bias end there. Check out an old favorite of ours, the list of links at the end of the story:

Two of those links are to WhatReallyHappened and, both of which are virulently anti-Israel and sometimes veer into anti-Israel conspiracy theories.

Nice to see that even the "Books" section of the Huffington Post is not free from the hatred of Israel and Jews that infects the rest of it.


  1. Counting down to "Stormfront" links, and all the fallacious pretences to collapse in 3, 2, 1...

  2. Actually the anti-Israel thugs aren’t happy with him, especially EI, this time he’s talked too much about Jews and called BDS a pointless “historically criminal” cult.

    Norman Finkelstein Waning Jewish American Support for Israel Boosts Chances for Middle East Peace
    “You read the last sentence of the 2004 International Court of Justice opinion on the wall that Israel has been building in the West Bank, and the last sentence says, "We look forward to two states: a Palestinian state alongside Israel and at peace with its neighbors." That’s the law.
    And if you want to go past that law or ignore the Israel part, you’ll never reach a broad public. And then it’s a cult. Then it’s pointless, in my opinion. We’re wasting time. And it’s only a wasting of time. It becomes—and I know it’s a strong word, and I hope I won’t be faulted for it, but it becomes historically criminal, because there was a time where whatever we said, it made no difference.”


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.
