D.C.’s ‘Self-Hating Jews’

Bibi’s no fan of Emanuel, Axelrod

Print Email

So what if Rahm Emanuel’s father is Israeli (and a veteran of the militant Irgun movement), and David Axelrod keeps a campaign poster spelling Barack Obama’s name in Hebrew characters next to his desk? They clearly don’t agree with Benjamin Netanyahu on the subject of settlements, at the very least, and as far as Bibi is concerned, that means they must not really be on Israel’s side at all. Haaretz correspondent Barak Ravid reports today that the Israeli prime minister—who, international diplomatic challenges aside, is dealing with a noisome cabinet and a fragile coalition—is “suffering from confusion and paranoia” and refers to both Emanuel and Axelrod as “self-hating Jews.” No word on whether that makes Netanyahu, a former ambassador to the United Nations, a self-hating diplomat.

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.
