Jeffrey Goldberg’s take on Jews, ethics, delis, and the Guardian


I don’t always agree with blogger Jeffrey Goldberg’s take on the Middle East, but he’s certainly one of the more interesting Jewish American bloggers on the scene.  And, while I’ve been trying to save up anti-Guardian commentary throughout the blogosphere for our weekly “Guardian’s Notoriety” segment, I enjoyed Goldberg’s passing observation about the world’s leading liberal voice quite a bit, and wanted to share it.

In a post titled “Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews!”, Goldberg notes that folks just can’t stop talking about us – which Goldberg acknowledges may have something to do with our historical advancements in both Theology (ethical monotheism) and the Deli Arts (whitefish salad).

Goldberg then notes “the disproportionate interest drunks and lunatics [Charlie Sheen, Glenn Beck, John Galliano, and the Iranians] take in Jews and their meddling and mysterious ways,” before adding:

“Now, Julian Assange is arguing that The Guardian — the English-language newspaper least friendly to Israel on Earth — is engaged in a Jewish-dominated conspiracy to smear him.”

The Guardian — the English-language newspaper least friendly to Israel on Earth

So simple, yet it says so much, and in only 80 quite Tweetable characters.  Mr. Goldberg, our hats (and Kippahs) are tipped for your contribution to our ongoing efforts to name and shame the increasingly notorious anti-Israel daily.

  1. The Guardian — the English-language newspaper least friendly to Israel on Earth

    is a typical English undertatement.

    But I would add three words to this:

    The Guardian — the English-language newspaper least friendly to Israel and the Jews on Earth

  2. @A.I.

    Thats true but none are mainstream like the Guardian. And none of them have anywhere near 30 million unique visitors a month to their website and a captive audience among the BBC.

  3. Zionism-Israel

    Iran’s Press-TV ans Al Ahram in English are sure more anti-Israel and anti- Jewish than the Guardian. Foe that matter so is The Nation.

    Nothing can be done for UK people watching Press TV if that is their choice. However, many Guardian readers are hangers on from the old Guardian before the present group of Trotsky orientated propagandists took over. They need to be made aware of how The Guardian spins ‘news’, misrepresents and omits, and manipulates them.

    At least, that seems to be part of the mission of CiFWatch.
