An Open Letter to Dov Bear (or Why I Read LGF)

Dear Mr Bear,

 

You have made very clear on many occasions your contempt for the blog Little Green Footballs. You have called it racist, and insinuated that you have to be an Arab-hater to like reading it.

 

While I agree that a minority of commenters on that blog can be rather extreme, I would like to point out that many of your commenters aren’t angels either (especially when it comes to treating others with respect). Yet I would like to think that you don’t consider them to be representative of your own, personal opinions. Nor would you like to see others talking trash about your blog because of them.

 

Be that as it may, I find it curious that you don’t recognize the great good that LGF does. How many other blogs – Jewish and non-Jewish alike – have posts like this? How many other blogs even bother posting about terror attacks that occur in Israel, including the more underreported ones? I know you don’t. I guess in between making fun of George Bush, the Right, other bloggers, and Rabbis, there is no time to post about the murder of Jews in Israel.

 

I hope this makes it clear why I will continue to read and promote LGF as a worthy blog.
