    I read your piece in the JO and the only reason I didn’t find it more enlightening was because I’ve been following this for some time so I was familiar with the bulk of the info. The best part however, was in the last footnote, which I think ought to be highlighted for all to see. Zuroff is so far off base in his position that he needs to be exposed every chance we get.
    Keep up the good work!

    There is an error in the article: KTAV is not “Yeshiva University’s;” it is independent.

    Otherwise, good article.

    I, for one, am so ‘depressed in the left’ – a movement that has nothing to offer but the disrobing of its Jewish values to a cheering, secularized Europe – and their ability to spread a message of malign so effectively and consistently, that I a led to give up, stop reading newspapers, and make believe it doesn’t exist. Thank you Jonathan for giving us hope.

    Isn’t the chareidi attitude toward history “purely instrumental, with historical accuracy of no inherent value”? Isn’t that why our “biographies” are really hagiographies, why a large variety of acceptable Torah opinions somehow get ommitted, why books (even translations of works by respected and well-known ba’alei mesorah) get banned?

    On that one side point, the attack struck a real problem.

    I fear that your professional denoument of Zuroff veers very close to Loshon Hora – we don’t like what he does and says, we have no right to assume his motives and expose them. I guess I might be over sensitive, but did the JO editorial Board ask a shailoh?
