NYT columnist Nicholas Kristof retweets message comparing pro-Israel group to pigs

January 16, 2013

columnist (Nicholas Kristof )is facing criticism after retweeting a controversial message that referred to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the National Rifle Association as “the 2 most pig like lobbies” in America.

Longtime Israel critic M.J. Rosenberg, who was dumped by the liberal Media Matters for America for his use of borderline anti-Semitic language, authored the controversial tweet Wednesday afternoon. It called to mind recently unearthed statements by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi that referred to Jews as “pigs.”
“OBAMA told the 2 most pig like lobbies, AIPAC & NRA, to drop dead in same month. Next: Chamber of Commerce,” Rosenberg wrote.
The missive was then retweeted by Kristof and a slew of others.

this apparently went on the same day that the New York Times attacked Morsi in an editorial criticizing the Egyptian leader for comparing Jews to Apes and Pigs

The Crisis of Jewish Leftist Islamism (by Sultan Knish)(h/t Israel Jews and Judaism) There is a civil war among liberals, particularly Jewish liberals who are being edged out by the radical Anti-Jewish left… Beinart exonerates leftist Zionists and Anti-Zionists, telling the former that they were abandoned by the awful Jewish state and telling the latter that hating Israel is the truest expression of their liberal and Jewish values… Now the left is conducting its long march through Jewish institutions to make supporting Israel seem un-Jewish and transform bashing Israel into a Jewish value (MORE)

(Tablet)(Israel Jews and Judaism) Beinart quotes former Israeli foreign minister Shlomo Ben-Ami telling Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman that “If I were a Palestinian, I would have rejected Camp David as well.” Yet Ben-Ami said in the same interview that Yasser Arafat “was morally, psychologically, physically incapable of accepting the moral legitimacy of a Jewish state, regardless of its borders or whatever.” This goes unquoted. I suspect that’s because Beinart found it in The Israel Lobby by political scientists John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, which also quotes the first part of Ben-Ami’s statement but not the second.(MORE)

(Tablet)(h/t Israel Jews and Judaism) Beinart writes that the Strip “remains a place of brutal suffering.”, but New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof says, in a July 2010 column: “Visiting Gaza persuaded me, to my surprise, that Israel is correct when it denies that there is any full-fledged humanitarian crisis in Gaza. The tunnels have so undermined the Israeli blockade that shops are filled and daily life is considerably easier than when I last visited here two years.”(MORE)

(One State, Two States by Steven Bayme)(h/t Israel Jews Judaism) Beinart complains that AJC and other leading Jewish organizations invest far greater efforts attacking Palestinian one-statism than Christian or Jewish one-statism…. we disagree profoundly with the one-state solution of the Christian Right, we find Palestinian one-statism a greater danger precisely because it is articulated by people with whom Israel is expected to make peace(MORE)

Stupid Liberal problem… they think they need a state for Jew killers. There already are plenty. Hey… these are excerpts… I don’t agree with them. These are liberal ideologies that I am exploring here. I didn’t say they were sustainable. – Noah
