Early this morning, The Economist tweeted the following link and photo to promote a featured story on their website (Fighting Talk, Sept. 5th) with the same image of ‘American Jewish protesters’, with the caption “The disputatious diaspora”.

Of course, as tweeters quickly pointed out to The Economist, the group highlighted in the photo (Neturei Karta) represents a very strange editorial choice in story about American Jewish opinion about the Iran Deal.
However, Neturei Karta is of course a fringe, extremist movement which believes that Zionism is “a demonic force in the world”, and it’s extremely misleading for Economist editors to highlight the group in a story about Jewish support for the Iran Deal without even noting their miniscule numbers and ideologically extreme views.
