More Dumb Comments From Guess Who

When Richard Silverstein sees the images of newly orphaned Moshe Holtzberg, whose parents were brutally murdered by terrorists last week, he is moved.

Moved to criticize the terrorists and Chabad in the same breath.

The sound and sight of little Moshe Holtzberg wailing Ima, ima (”Mommy, mommy”), repeatedly during his parent’s funeral service in Mumbai will lacerate our hearts for a long time. I even hesitated before featuring this image since poor Moshe has, from the beginning, been a pawn in the game of far more powerful forces than himself or his family. First the terrorists, who wrenched his parents from him. Then Chabad, which allowed these images to be taken. I say let Moshe become an ordinary boy again (if this is indeed ever possible). Let’s not turn him into a poster child for any particular cause or ideology.

Funny, but I thought Silverstein had rather liberal views regarding the dissemination of images.
