The New York Times reviewed the new book by Robert Fisk. Now as some know, I have–politically speaking–broken with Robert Fisk over his lousy Hummus coverage of the Lebanese events in the course of this year. He writes like Hariri staffers. Not that he cares about my opinion, and not that I ever met him. But I was outraged at this review in the Times. An ill-informed writer for the Times, takes it upon himself to decide who is knowledgeable and who is not? “Mr. Fisk is most passionate and least informed about Israel.” To that I say: the New York Times is most passionate and least informed about the entire Middle East.
