Klinghoffer Watch

Thanks to LastTrumpet over at Jewschool for weighing in with a critique of David Klinghoffer’s latest Forward op-ed.

It’s hard not to respond to every item that the uber-conservative Klinghoffer writes — but if someone else is doing it, I can take the week off — along with a deep breath.

I will say that LastTrumpet is on the money in finding Klinghoffer’s critique of Gershom Scholem’s Zohar research to be the most unfortunate.

For previous editions of the (tentatively titled) Klinghoffer Watch, see I, II, III.
