Take a look at this excellent story by Larry Cohler-Esses in the Jewish Week about the bogus yellow star story. Kudos to the Anti-Defamation League for demonstrating some caution and good sense in this matter. AIPAC’s been trying to get the United States to go to war with Iran for some time now, so it’s hardly a surprise to see them acting in the maximally alarmist way. Nobody really expects lobbying organizations to be anything other than dishonest in pushing their agendas. The National Post, The New York Sun, and The New York Post are all supposed to be outlets for actual journalism, albeit of a conservative brand, but obviously they’ve decided not to go in that direction.
Late Update: Taylor Marsh also did reporting for that article, which was apparently reflected in the original version of the story and not in the one I saw online.
