Richard Silverstein With Yet Another Embarrassing Slip-Up

Hardly a day goes by where DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein proves he is incapable of getting anything right. Fresh from his embarrassing Leonard Cohen gaffe, the pathological Israel hater has gone all Britney Spears and oops done it again (hat tip: Joseph).

In a rambling post defending Yonatan Geffen, who compared Ahed ‘Shirley Temper’ Tamimi to Joan of Arc, Hannah Senesch and Anne Frank, he includes this photo of Hannah Senesch:


Except it isn’t. It is a photo of American pilot and commander Nancy Harkness Love.

Clearly, Silverstein got sloppy again, and saw this. Or perhaps the same photo on this page. And I concede the two women do look somewhat alike. But Silverstein considers himself a journalist. Why did he not look at that photo and ask why she is wearing a pilot’s uniform and not paratrooper kit? At that point, he should have done a reverse image search and he would have discovered he was once again barking up the wrong tree.

In the meantime, this self-proclaimed expert and journalist continues to appear on Iranian propaganda outfit PressTV. Because they are pretty much the only ones desperate enough to have him – and because they care less for the truth than for bashing Israel.
