Thumbs Up to Jeff Jacoby

THUMBS UP to Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby for fearless, factual commentary on important topics ignored by many journalists, such as the dangerous phenomenon of Arab anti-Semitism. Jacoby observes that the lack of media focus on the issue "is perplexing" since the Arab-Israeli negotiations get covered in detail. "American and European journalists pay great attention to the Arab world's diplomatic dealings with the Jewish state," he writes. "How odd that they pay almost none to what Arabs and Muslims actually say about Jews."
