The Guardian hasn't published one of my letters in a while. The Guardian's Middle East coverage basically parrots the pro-Palestinian line, but the coverage of Israel's assassination of Sheikh Yassin was especially disgusting. David Hirst wrote the obit and, get ready . . . he actually compared Yassin with Nelson Mandela. Hirst is pretty much an antisemite in addition to being a plagiarist; he published a smear against Judaism in the web edition of the now-awful Nation Magazine that was lifted from Israel Shahak's scurrilous book, "Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel" (it drew a laudatory letter from Michael Hoffman, a Holocaust denier out in Idaho); but this is bad even for him.
