On the eve of Rosh Hashanah, The Washington Post gave Prof. Stephen Walt a platform to reiterate the anti-Israel conspiracy theory advanced in his 2007 book The Israel Lobby, a belief roundly rejected by many of his colleagues and reviewers. The question is, why?
Washington Post columnist Harold Meyerson's June 17th column smears not only Israel but also its Jewish supporters. It uses an unreliable poll from a fringe source to argue that American Jews favor U.S. pressure on Israel.

CNN's "God's Jewish Warriors," hosted by Christiane Amanpour, is currently being rebroadcast on CNN. The piece is one of a three-part series supposedly intended to examine the growing role of religious fundamentalism in today's world.

Unchanged, however, is the fundamentally dishonest premise of the series equating religiously devout Jews and Christians to radical Islam.
