Unlike some, I have not devoted myself to studying the writings of Glenn Greenwald. Others have devoted the time, because Greenwald has such a large following at Salon.com.

I did, however, write about Greenwald’s absurd coverage of the Islamist-inspired, Turkish-led Gaza flotilla, particularly Greenwald’s offensive use of the term “Israel-Firsters” in connection the Turkish-led Gaza flotilla.

That term or the equivalent is a favorite of the old anti-Semitic right, the new anti-Semitic left, and people like Greenwald who are not anti-Semitic but who can’t help but dabble in the anti-Semitic verbiage of dual loyalty directed towards American Jewish supporters of Israel.

The irony is that the vast majority of Americans are “Israel-Firsters” using Greenwald’s definition. In fact, many American Christians are far more so than many American Jews, particularly American Jews reared in liberal orthodoxy.

So rather than belaboring Greenwald’s belabored existence, I suggest you read The Paper Greenwald at The New Ledger. Then read Greenwald’s response (one of many, I’m sure).

Then vomit, you’ll feel better.

Off-topic: Did you hear the one about how Max Blumenthal thinks it’s great that Palestinians send their young children to confront Israeli soldiers? How cool is that?

Added: It’s actually worse than that. One of the people in the video appears to be an Israeli leftist taunting the soldiers that he will see them in the international court of justice; the whole incident was a set up so that people like Blumenthal could write about how Israeli soldiers face off against children.

Update: Here is background on the Israeli leftist in the video, h/t Martin Solomon of Solomonia.
