  1. Score one for the good guys. Muzzlewatch, Tikkun Olam, and other progressive blogs deserve much of the credit for this. But Walt and Mearsheimer indirectly deserve some of the credit; crying “antisemitic” has become deligitimized as a result of their arguments, and mainstream national Jewish organizations and individuals are adopting the strategy of toning down the rhetoric, of “refuting” rather than “labeling”.

    But the underlying question, which I raise (but do not answer) in my blog today, is how liberal Zionism became the default “center” in the media discourse of this country? Or to put this differently, why are mainstream moderates like Jimmy Carter, Walt and Mearsheimer, Desmond Tutu, Tony Judt, and yes, Norm Finkelstein, branded by *liberals* as “onesided,” “biased,” or “hopelessly naive”?

  2. One of the things I always enjoyed when visiting Israel was the great variety of opinion. Americans are astonishingly conformist by comparison.
