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.

When it comes to telling the inconvenient set of truths that increasingly set Israel apart from what we consider to be a Western democracy or a society akin to the USA or western Europe, no good deed remains unpunished. Max Blumenthal, in two books published four years apart, has exposed two authoritarian Old Testament-based cultures for their anti-democratic underpinnings. The first book, unveiling strange Christian and Christianist currents in our political world was widely praised. The second, examining somewhat similar forces in Israeli political, religious, cultural and educational life, is being widely damned.

Max Blumenthal spent a lot of time in Israel and the occupied West Bank, assiduously chronicling, and interviewing, posting dozens of articles in magazines, online journals and blogs. Although he continued to cover aspects of the far right in America, his efforts toward gathering the vast amount of information packed into the new book must have been a formidable task.

What would the media response have been had a prominent American Muslim been able to draw such applause from a university audience for recommending using a thermonuclear weapon on Tel Aviv?
