An Example of Progressive Blogging

Gershom Gorenberg has a piece in The American Prospect entitled, "The Rebel Prince", against Moshe Feiglin. And also at his South Jerusalem blog, shared with HaimWatzman.

I, too, do not support Feiglin and his Jewish Leadership group, but I don't like what Gorenberg did there.

He notes that "on the Jewish Leadership website, a Hebrew document proposes principles for a constitution for Israel". The unavoidable presumption is that the document is an official one.

But anyone with a modicum of Hebrew could have read and known that that "document" was composed by Prof. Hillel Weiss and it was uploaded as part of an internal discussion as to the future character of a Jewish state. The implication suggested that that document is the agreed upon approach, decided at some official convocation, is not only wrong but intended to be misleading.

Shame he did that 'before the goyim'.
