    Least Shocking Blog Post Title Ever: “Village Voice Editor discovers she hates Israel, curses when challenged”

    Least Shocking Blog Post Title Ever: “Village Voice Editor discovers she hates Israel, curses when challenged”

    I will not bore you with all the details, so here’s my summary: 

    Leftist Jewish Film Editor of The Village Voice writes entirely self-absorbed tale of her own discovery that she hates Israel, decides to edit the mean stuff out of the Passover Hagadah, and when challenged by an eminent Israeli historian, former Director of the Yad Vashem Archives and blogger, throws the m-f’er bomb his way on Twitter.

    End of story.   Hurry up, the boats are leaving for Gaza any minute.

    By the way, the person to whom she threw her m-f’er language was someone to whom I frequently linked, and who unfortunately recently turned off his blog (but not completely).

    Blog commenting critique:

    I have noticed that the comment editor window inserts hard returns at places where NO hard return was inserted by the commenter.

    I think it may be a problem with the word wrap.

    Not a big deal but it is noticeable and as I try to be grammatically correct and write structurally sound sentences in both grammar and composition it is irritating to have my efforts sabotaged by the editing and it looks ignorant.

    “… edit the mean stuff out of the Passover Hagadah …” Like the Jews being kept as slaves?

    […] saw this when it came out, and then William Jacobson wrote a pithy post, so I was reminded: “Least Shocking Blog Post Title Ever: “Village Voice Editor discovers she hates Israel, curses when….” Check that entry, but the preview is that she told Israeli historian Yaacov Lozowick to […]

    I liked one line in the article: about the Haaretz editors being like her Jew-hating boyfriend. I usually refer to that newspaper as al-Ard; it’s almost the dictionary definition of “self-hating Jew”.

    jakee308, I think the term you’re looking for is “Stockholm syndrome”. Much of the Israeli population has fallen for it. They’ve started identifying with the enemy, in the subconscious hope that this will make the enemy start identifying with them, and not kill them. It’s a recognised clinical disorder, and it never works, because the enemy doesn’t suffer from it.
