I suspect that was just carelessness on Henry's part but
still, thirty seconds of reading should have made the
character of that web site quite clear.

Part of the problem here is that neo-Nazis love nothing
better than to post anti-Zionist writings from people like
Chomsky or Lenni Brenner or Israel Shahak on their own
web sites, so that people doing Google searches looking
for stuff written by these people, will more often than not
find themselves directed to a neo-Nazi web site.  That
does not make our job any easier, and makes it very
easy for Zionists to not only equate anti-Zionism with
anti-Semitism but to go beyond that and suggest that
even the mildest criticisms of Israel must necessarily
be anit-Semitic.  Here there is a very vicious symbiosis
between anti-Semites and Zionists which works to
the advantage of both, but which is very harmful to progressives.
