‘Atlantic’ Iran Story Worried About The Jewish Problem

Goldberg practices a different sort of ‘linkage’

Print Email

A reader notes that contributing editor Jeff Goldberg’s cover story on Iran’s nuclear program has one, er, interesting hyperlink. Mentioning The Origins of the Inquisition in 15th-Century Spain, the landmark historical work by Prime Minister Netanyahu’s father, the site links to … this article on a site called the Institute for Historical Review, which calls itself “historical revisionist,” and, um, well, let’s say that the essay (which is about Netanyahu’s father’s magnum opus) is none too kind to “his passion and his bias,” what with his dedication to his son, Jonathan, who was slain during the raid at Entebbe.

In response to our query, Goldberg said, “I never voluntarily link to this or other neo-Nazi sites. I’ll try to get to the bottom of this.” Get on it!

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

David says:

This is a mark of (or possibly on) Goldberg’s quality of journalism. Goldberg’s conclusions should be questioned as well.

I think that Jewish Communities must be strong. And than they cope this problem
