The Economist Changes Offensive Title


Since we posted our article on the venomous M.S. blog of March 6, 2012, The Economist has seen fit to change the title from “Israel, Iran and America: Auschwitz complex� to “Israel, Iran and America: Masters of their fate?� The editor’s note reads:

The original headline of this blog post was inappropriate and has been changed at the instruction of the editor in chief. No offence was intended and we apologise unreservedly.

The content of the blog flouted all journalistic norms, completely misrepresented the facts and was laden with hostility toward Israel, Judaism and Jews. One hopes the editor-in-chief will see the need to rectify that as well.

What was the matter with "Auschwitz Complex"? Didn't Netanyahu compare the Iran situation with Auschwitz? Sure, it's stark, but, wasn't that the thrust of Netanyahu's case for taking out Iran?
