Silverstein’s New Low
Today, anti-Israel blogger Richard Silverstein tweeted something which was unbelievably low, even considering his normal “standards”.
BBC axes Israeli film which debunks Zionist myth of exile of Jews from Roman Judea in 70CE bit.ly/134r17l

What is even more disturbing than Silverstein’s unqualified acceptance of the notion the film debunks the Jewish exile – despite the fact he has never seen it – is his characterization of the Jewish exile after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70CE as a “Zionist myth.” This, despite the fact it is part of established Jewish history, as mentioned in the Talmud. Even the most vehement of Jewish anti-Israel, anti Zionist groups like Neturei Karta do not deny this exile.
You can form your own conclusions. It looks to me like Silverstein is not “merely” attacking Israel, but is attacking Judaism.
