No one is as good at being consistently wrong as New York Times columnist Tom Friedman. If you want a read on the world, particularly the Middle East and ESPECIALLY Israel and Palestine that bears no resemblance to reality whatsoever, he’s your guy.
This week Friedman really outdid himself. Waxing poetic over the departing government of Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid, Friedman manages to normalize apartheid, blame Palestinians for their own oppression, and praises those who would abandon their cousins under occupation.
I take a deep dive into the muck of his latest piece of fiction on the NYT opinion page in my latest piece for Mondoweiss.
