I give my readers cold hard evidence about Palestinians. They refuse to believe it. - J. J. Goldberg - The Forward 29.08.16
A fair number of readers wrote to tell me what the Palestinians actually believe.

It's time we called racism-as-Zionism what it is: disgusting. [One criticised in Burston's Haaretz article for dehumanising extremism against Palestinians is Isi Leibler, a former Australian Jewish leader who now writes a personal blog from Jerusalem. Leibler has subsequently had published in Israel Hayom a similarly extreme attack on Haaretz itself, Israel’s oldest daily newspaper, even going so far as to assert: ‘There is sufficient evidence to suggest that in recent years, the newspaper has caused more harm to the image of Israel than the combined efforts of our adversaries’.  Neither the article nor the publisher disclosed the author’s personal interest in discrediting Haaretz. For Leibler's subsequent specific response to Burston, see here.]
