did you win that race? did you score that point?:
My friend Ari Berman catches the Los Angeles Times' Peter Wallstein relying on a racist rightwinger, Debbie Schlussel, for a piece implying that Barack Obama has some kind of animus against the Jews. Apparently it's impossible to be a friend of both Israel and Palestine! Christ, Wallstein also uses another friend of mine, Hussein Ibish, to say in coded words, See? See? Arabs like Obama! Arabs!

I think the better question: can you be a friend of Israel and a friend of this particular academic, who apparently endorsed the killing of Israeli soldiers as legitamate under international law. I don't think even the Israeli left would accept that one.
