As American As Baseball and Talking to Our Enemies?
Posted by Heather Hurlburt

When the McCain campaign goes after an Orthodox Jew, former dean of Yeshiva U., career diplomat who was the Bush Administration's ambassador to Israel on 9-11, was caricatured in anti-Semitic cartoons in the Cairo press during his tenure as Ambassador to Egypt, where he bravely was a public face of Orthodoxy, and is the Commissioner of the Israeli Baseball League (you can't make this stuff up), for doing something the Israeli government is already doing (talking to Syrians), will someone please tell me exactly how this country is supposed to have a diplomatic establishment? 

My friend Eli Lake didn't think these things were worth reporting, and no surprise the McCain campaign smear machine didn't dig them up.  But one man of courage, faith and principle ought to be able to recognize another whether they agree or disagree.  When someone with a record like this can be trashed, how on earth are we supposed to have a bipartisan foreign policy establishment, or partisanship that stops at the water's edge?  (I know, I know, it was only a rhetorical question.  But still.)
