Silverstein Lies In Attempt To Cash In On Israeli TV Appearance
Anti-Israel blogger Richard Silverstein is trying to cash in on his few minutes of “fame”, quoting Israel’s Channel 10 news below the donate button on his site:
For a start, the way he has framed the quote, it looks like Channel 10 is asking people to support his blog, the “Wikileaks of Israel.” They never did anything of the kind. In fact, as I pointed out, they mocked him and questioned how he is able to make a living.
But even assuming he is representing the phrase “the Wikileaks of Israel” as coming from Channel 10, this is also a boldfaced lie. Again, as I pointed out, the Channel 10 journalist who interviewed him reported that Silverstein himself refers to his blog as the Wikileaks of Israel, and then proceeded to explain why he is no Wikileaks.
It is abundantly clear that this man has no compunctions about lying to achieve his goals.
