I posted previously about accusations that groups such as Media Matters and the Center for American Progress (which runs the Think Progress blog) routinely used questionable terminology (such as “Israel-Firsters”) and were pushing an anti-Israel agenda under the guise of battling the “Israel Lobby.”

The story was brought to the forefront by ...

Glenn Greenwald has a lengthy hyperbolic column complaining that people who criticize Israeli policies are smeared with accusations of anti-Semitism.

The column relates to the fallout from Ben Smith’s report on the anti-Israeli activities and writing at the Center for American Progress (CAP) and its Think Progress blog, and at Media Matters.

When someone finds himself so in need of criticizing the U.S. that he ends up defending the brutal Iranian regime which for over 30 years has funded anti-U.S. and anti-Israel groups around the globe and sought to export Islamist fundamentalism, then all credibility has been lost.

Yes, there is.  The world awaits word from … the prolific Glenn Greenwald.  Nothing on Twitter, or at Salon.com.

Among the ironies of the intervention in Libya is that those who most bitterly complain about the Israel Lobby were in fact part of a Libya Lobby, as pointed out by David Bernstein earlier this month:

There are many cheap tricks used against bloggers.

Perhaps the most common is to attribute the views expressed in comments to the blogger.  The problem there is that the nature of a comment section is to give people other than the blogger the chance to express an opinion, so one has nothing to do...

Defenders of WikiLeaks have portrayed Bradley Manning and Julian Assange as heroes who only want transparency, and who did no real harm.

In fact, WikiLeaks has put lives at risk and damaged international attempts to rid Zimbabwe of the Mugabe regime.  And beyond that, Wikileaks has damaged our ability to conduct diplomacy, where...

Glenn Greenwald Plays Victim

I have criticized Glenn Greenwald on multiple occasions for playing the dual-loyalty card against American Jewish supporters of Israel.

Greenwald uses the phrase “Israel-firsters” and also recently accused Eric Cantor, the incoming Republican Majority Leader in the House, of pledging allegiance to Israel.

The charge against Greenwald is not one of anti-Semitism, and...

I posted earlier about how left-wing bloggers deliberately misrepresented a statement issued by Eric Cantor’s office about a meeting Cantor had with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 

Glenn Greenwald accused Cantor of pledging allegiance to Israel over the U.S., and Greenwald’s accusations were amplified with accusations by other left-wingers that Cantor...

I have documented how Glenn Greenwald peddles the most rank of dual loyalty charges against American Jewish supporters of Israel, by using the phrase “Israel-Firsters.” 

Now Greenwald is at it again, suggesting that soon-to-be Majority Leader Eric Cantor has pledged allegiance to Israel. 

Greenwald’s blog post is titled Eric Cantor’s Pledge...

Once again I have a seemingly unsolvable dilemma.  If “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” which one of these guys has to be my friend?

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...

According to the most recent Gallup poll, support among Americans for Israel over the Palestinians is at a near all time high. 63% of Americans (more than voted for Barack Obama) support Israel, while only 15% support the Palestinians, with 23% choosing “both/neither/no opinion.”

Despite this overwhelming support, which must come overwhelmingly...
