Sloppy Dick Strikes Yet Again


Hardly a day goes by without anti-Israel blogger Richard Silverstein posting an untruth.

This time around, he has tweeted a number of tweets lamenting the fact the NY Times obituary for Rabbi Herschel Schacter – the first Jewish chaplain to enter the Buchenwald concentration camp after it was liberated – did not include some “dirt” on him, namely some controversial comments Silverstein claims he made.

Well, there’s a reason this wasn’t mentioned in the obituary: these comments were not made by the deceased Rabbi Herschel Schacter, but rather the much younger and much alive Rabbi Hershel Schachter. Sure, there’s a subtle difference in the spelling of the two names, but you’d think Silverstein would have learned to be more careful by now.
