Today's Attacks on a HuffPost Blogger

Former mayor Ed Koch (one of the few pro-Israel bloggers on the Huffington Post) wrote an article going after the nations of Europe for their hypocrisy regarding Israel. They said nothing while the Palestinians fired rockets by the thousands, then whined when Israel built settlements. He also called them "collaborators" which I thought was probably overdoing it, especially here:
"Remember, it was not just Hitler and the Nazis who ordered the Jews rounded up and taken to concentration camps. Many of the countries on the European mainland and their people assisted the Nazis in sending the Jews to the death camps. They collaborated then and they are collaborating now."
Pretty aggressive, but considering how often Israel's detractors use Nazi analogies, it seems pretty hypocritical for them to get upset about it. Regardless the Huffington Post let through personal attacks that would have been pulled instantly had they been aimed at any other blogger:

As always, Huffington Post approved.
