An Inconvenient Truth

Matt Yglesias writes a fun attack on me today in which he says:

Spencer Ackerman flags a Shmuel Rosner article on Samantha Power in which she responds to allegations that she hates Jews, etc., etc. The article’s not terrible, but anything that refers to Noah Pollack, who’s been peddling these smears, as a “yound and talented writer,” is bound to be at least somewhat problematic. To make a long story short, though, first Obama was an anti-semite because Zbigniew Brzezinski is an anti-semite. Then Obama was an anti-semite because Robert Malley is an anti-semite. And now according to Pollack it’s Power who who’s tainted by Jew-hatred.

I have a very simple challenge for Yglesias and Spencer Ackerman, although I suspect they’re both too lazy and dishonest to take it up: Please do me and your readers the favor of linking to the posts in which I have accused Power — or anyone associated with the Obama campaign — of “Jew-hatred,” or anything that could be construed as Jew-hatred. I’ll even do the hard work for you guys and provide, in reverse chronological order, links to everything I’ve written about Power: see here, here, here, and here.

Have at it, boys.
