    Pap like this is why I don't subscribe to Haaretz: slander, innuendo and opinion dressed as as reporting. You leftists are scared out of your wits by people on the right who are thoughtful, articulate and can even fundraise. There were precious few of those in this country before the Shalem Center appeared on the scene, and none so well-organized. So you resort to tried-and-true tactics: name-calling, selective disclosure of facts and obtaining quotes (which represent opinion) from anyone among the hundreds of employees and former employees who might have been slightly offended while working there. The Shalem Center is the story of some bright immigrants, shunned by the leftist elite, who beat the system: they got funding to think about the projects they wanted to think about without being beholden to the prevailing cultural orthodoxy, and got the political decision makers to think about issues in a new way. What have Naama Lanski and Daphna Berman ever accomplished?
