Who Is Max Blumenthal, And What Does He Want From Us?

Nicely played, David Mikics at Tablet Magazine. 

The phrase "pisher di tutti pishers" is A REAL KEEPER AND I AM SO LIBERATING THAT. 

"But the truth is that Blumenthal is a pisher di tutti pishers and the mainstreaming of him has no political importance, since none of his political views are original to him. As a reporter, the best one can say about him is that he doesn’t speak Hebrew or Arabic, and he doesn’t have any sources—so it’s hard to fault him for getting things wrong. Rather, his specialty is the age-old marketing of Israel as a unique repository of the world’s evils and therefore a deserving target of unrestrained invective. The question then, is really for anti-Zionists who believe their cause to be motivated by justice and human rights: What to do about the hater in their midst?"
