he attacked Ali Abunimah for, basically, being a hypocrite. Let me know if you have trouble following this: Abunimah criticized Abbas for renouncing the so-called right of return, but Atzmon attacked Abunimah because Abunimah endorses BDS which also doesn't promote the right of return as much as Atzmon thinks it should. So because Atzmon has a more extreme position than Abunimah or Abbas, Blumenthal calls him a "hasbarist."
Speaking of which, Atzmon uses the exact same language:
"It is also possible that Abunimah is now serving Israeli, Zionist or Jewish interests....[but] I actually agree with Abunimah. I myself have dedicated the last two decades of my life to fight for the Palestinian ROR only to discover that some Palestinian leaders may not be interested in it at all."Confusing, isn't it? I can't even understand what they're talking about or why they are arguing. After all they are all more Palestinian than the Palestinians and they all want Israel wiped out, just in different ways and forms. So that's why they call each other "hasbara?"
