Krauthammer reminds us why the Easterbrook flap is unimportant:
. . .the idea of destroying someone’s reputation and career over a single slip of this type is not just ridiculous, but vindictive.
And hugely beside the point. The world is experiencing the worst resurgence of anti-Semitism in 50 years. Its main objective is the demonization and delegitimization of Israel, to the point that the idea of eradicating, indeed obliterating, the world’s only Jewish state becomes respectable, indeed laudable. The psychological grounds for the final solution are being prepared.
Easterbrook has apologized. Leave him alone.
Already done, Charles. This is the first — and last — time I’ll mention the sorry story.
