Thank you, Mr. Alterman, for smacking down a hater and exposing his BS. Thank you, Alouette, for posting this Page.

If you’re going to describe Blumenthal’s book as suitable for the Hamas Book-of-the-Month club, don’t get all pearl-clutching about idiomatic uses of the word “fascism.”

…Because there’s no way, in your mind, that mindbogglingly offensive use of terms like fascism would justify that? And that’s before we get into the nazi comparisons. Nope, the Hamas book-of-the-month thing doesn’t even seem to be hyperbolic - even though, quite unlike your example, it is clearly stated in a hyperbolic fashion; i.e. something to be taken not as 100% literal fact.

Vicious Babushkarss,

Thanks for showing this to us. It gives us a vastly different take than that Alternet article on the book.
