Not even my stomach's that strong

I was planning on providing a link to very long article, from Harry's Place, the heading of which claims that "Mearsheimer and Walt defend a Nazi who thinks Hitler will be proved right". The Nazi in question is Gilad Atzmon, whom I'm sure I have no need to introduce to readers of this blog. However, when I started reading it, I realised that I really couldn't face, good though the deconstruction is by one Joseph W. You may have stronger stomachs for the drek that comes through in the quotes from Atzmon's book "The Wandering Who" (yes, that appallingly weak pun actually is the title of the book - read the critique and save your money). You can find the link by way of Engage, and it was posted today, 26 September.

There, in the same article, you will find links to other Harry's Place articles, two of them linked to below:

Interpal and Hamas: Breakfast With Ismail

London Met Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing: Atzmon is Rushdie and India has problem with Israelis

Hmm I've looked at one or two of his articles and decided he was a wanker. Never bothered with seeking out his words.

jams, by "his", I presume you mean Atzmon (because "Harry" is okay). You'll get no argument from me on that score (if my presumption is correct), but some might otherwise be fooled because he passes himself off as a jazz musician - which he apparently is. I wouldn't know, because much as I love jazz, I refuse to support people like Atzmon in any way shape or form.

I really enjoyed reading this article.  Although, my stomach also almost turned just hearing the titles, let alone reading the non-sense that they have made up. 

Either way, I am also a Pro-Israel Blogger and please add my blog to your blog Roll.  Plus, feel free to visit my site from time to time cuz I have a lot to say with regards to what is happening in the region. 

My address is: http:benjaminkahen.blogspot.com
