‘Atlantic’ Iran Story Worried About The Jewish Problem
Goldberg practices a different sort of ‘linkage’
A reader notes that contributing editor Jeff Goldberg’s cover story on Iran’s nuclear program has one, er, interesting hyperlink. Mentioning The Origins of the Inquisition in 15th-Century Spain, the landmark historical work by Prime Minister Netanyahu’s father, the site links to … this article on a site called the Institute for Historical Review, which calls itself “historical revisionist,” and, um, well, let’s say that the essay (which is about Netanyahu’s father’s magnum opus) is none too kind to “his passion and his bias,” what with his dedication to his son, Jonathan, who was slain during the raid at Entebbe.
In response to our query, Goldberg said, “I never voluntarily link to this or other neo-Nazi sites. I’ll try to get to the bottom of this.” Get on it!
