Silverstein’s Septimana Horribila

It’s been a horrible week for anti-Israel blogger Richard Silverstein.

His pimping of a hit piece on Iranian-Israeli Middle East analyst Meir Javedanfar to a number of anti-Israel personalities and sites backfired, with even Justin Raimondo of antiwar.com deeming it beyond the pale.

 

This prompted Silverstein to have a Twitter meltdown, which you can see here.

Soon after, he tweeted an untruth regarding a poll from the leftist Ha’aretz, prompting the latter to issue a rather blunt smack-down.

 

Meanwhile, Silverstein had to retract his libel of me 3 weeks ago, which until a few days ago he refused to take down, despite being informed of the truth soon after he published the offending post. While his “retraction” consisted of an admission I was never in contact with the person who defaced his site, he could not leave it at that. He proceeded to claim I celebrated the “hack” and then published the name of the company he believes is my employer, in a blatant attempt to cause trouble for me at work. While I did find it amusing that his site looked pro-Israel for a while, as well as the fact he was not hacked at all but rather made a dumb mistake to allow anyone to freely enter his site’s admin area,  I never condoned any hacking of his site.

To make matters worse, he did this with full knowledge that I am dealing with my wife’s battle with cancer. The very post that forced his “retraction” specifically makes mention of this, and I tweeted as much to him.

This does not surprise me, given my experience with Silverstein’s dishonesty and seeming hatred for those ideologically opposed to him. It also doesn’t surprise me, given he threatened me with blackmail.

Remember this?

Tikun Olam indeed.
