On Tuesday, author, journalist and videographer Max Blumenthal addressed the New America Foundation, to a packed house, in the ballroom of the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The foundation, which had been subjected to enormous pressure from Zionist organizations to cancel the event, is still being attacked for having gone through with their commitment to present the young author, as he described the background and content of his recent book, Goliath: Life sand Loathing in Greater Israel.

What may have turned out to be the most disturbing element introduced by Eric Alterman, was his bringing Max Blumenthal’s father, Sidney Blumenthal, into the argument. What seemed to some as an innocuous comment in Alterman’s first article, has turned into a sordid campaign by even more sordid people, to attack both the elder Blumenthal, and Hillary and Bill Clinton, and their foundation. The hits have devolved from Buzzfeed.com to Breitbart.com to white supremacist Robert Stacy McCain’s blog, as the threats have escalated.

The push-back against Max Blumenthal for Goliath is reminiscent to the reception of The Israel Lobby. One might say, though, that the militant Zionist hits against the new book are informed somewhat by what Zionist commentators have learned from Walt and Mearsheimer’s book.
