Orwell, Finkielkraut and Haaretz

For those of you following crucifixion of Alain Finkielkraut in the French and Israeli Press, here is anaccount of how he was bushwacked by two Israeli 'journalists' and their agents du mal. Once again, Haaretz shows that it is 99% ideological organ, 1% newspaper.

It reminds me of something my wife's mother, who attended Stalin's Talmud Torah (as she puts it), once commented. There were two newspapers of record in Soviet Russia: Izvestia ('The News') and Pravda ('The Truth').

The joke in Stalin's Talmud Torah was: There's no Izvestia in Pravda and no Pravda in Isvestia.
