Noel Ignatiev and the specter of Zionism

Who the heck is Noel Ignatiev, you may ask, and you will be right at that. But read that Wiki entry, it is quite amusing. Says Ben Cohen:

Noel Ignatiev is a far left anti-Zionist US academic with no track record of publication on Jewish or Middle Eastern issues. Yet he was selected to write an entry on "Zionism" for the "Encyclopedia of Race and Racism" published by none other than Macmillan Reference USA!
And there is more, much more on the mysterious Mr Ignatiev and his worldview in Ben's article Macmillan USA Encyclopedia Damns Zionism as Racism. Including a link to the original crap by Ignatiev on Zionism.
