On November 8th 2013, an article of mine titled “Why Obama Did Not Make 
War on Syria” appeared on CounterPunch. I imagine it was this kind of 
article that would incite email complaints recently to the good folks at 
CounterPunch along these lines as I learned from them:

	Another violent message regarding “crypto zionist” Louis Proyect who 
deserves to be stabbed in the neck. He seems to incite these sorts of 

Likely the same individual wrote a comment on my blog as 
“killudeadkike”: “Louis Proyect = cypto-Zionist faggot White Nationalist.”

I suppose if I had been writing the same idiotic article as everybody 
else in 2013 about how Obama was preparing to invade Syria as stage one 
in a war on Iran, I wouldn’t be getting hate mail. But I’d rather get 
hate mail than write stupid bullshit like this:

	Obama is hypocritically invoking international law to justify the 
escalation of a war that Washington has pursued in large measure through 
terrorist bombings carried out by its proxy forces in Syria. The 
operational alliance between the US and Al Qaeda underscores the 
criminal character of US foreign policy and the political fraud of the 
so-called “war on terror.”

That’s from the World Socialist Website. 
(http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2013/05/01/syri-m01.html) If you do a 
search on “Syria” and “al Qaeda” there, you will find 71 articles all 
making the same point, as if American imperialism was in cahoots with 
Islamic fundamentalists
