'Eldad said that "Toaff might have been jealous of the New Historians, who publish modern blood libels against the state of Israel,"' Well, well, well. These MKs really don't give a rat's ass about the historical truth, do they? They revile the use of anti-semitic libels of the past and present to smear the reputation of Jews generally, but to smear the legimate and rigorous efforts of a few inconvenient Israeli historians? No problem! The work of the New Historians is based on archived documents of the Israeli and British Colonial governments. If you are not going to distinguish between scholars who ground their work in solid evidence and those who do not, you cheapen the efforts of all scholars. But I guess the historical evidence is rather inconvenient for today's Zionists. The MKs are just politicians, and a cheap smear almost always pays dividends.
