The New Yorker defends Israel Firsters and M J Rosenberg of Media Matters

March 6, 2012

(Carl)MJ Rosenberg, who goes around labeling supporters of Israel ‘Israel firsters’ – a term that the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee and the Simon Wiesenthal Center have all called anti-Semitic.

(The New Yorker)The idea that Rosenberg (whom I have known for years as someone who is profoundly devoted to Israel and, at the same time, abhors the Israeli occupation) could be labelled an anti-Semite is an indicator of the lengths to which this smear-campaign has gone. It is hardly the first time in American history that those with a political agenda have sought to demonize others whose views they dislike, as a means of destroying them and silencing any potential sympathizers.

The magazine thinks that one of their liberal own who support Palestine are incapable of bias!
