Charles Taylor Finds Yahweh

Former Liberian President Charles Taylor has found a new religion, reports say. The one-time African dictator, on trial at The Hague accused of crimes against humanity, has decided to convert to Judaism.

Obama ‘Madrassa’ Rumor-Monger Wanted to ‘Exterminate Jew Power in America’

So, everyone has a relative, or perhaps a neighbor, who has spread warnings in hushed tones about Barack Obama’s years of secret indoctrination at a Muslim madrassa (gasp!) in Indonesia—as though affiliating with a Muslim community of any description is cause for concern—a rumor that has been disproved many times. Here’s a fun look into the origin of the chain e-mail that started that particular smear.

Don Imus

Mel Gibson: The World ‘Seems to Have Gone Mad’

Celebrity scandals aren’t our bag. But considering that some Jewish groups felt Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” did more to further anti-Semitism than any other piece of pop culture in recent memory, we figure that Gibson’s apology for his anti-Semitic remarks over the weekend is fair game.

  • The photo above was taken at a bar a few hours before his arrest.
  • The N.Y. Times marvels at “the speed at which the scandal unfolded, doing serious damage to one of Hollywood?s most valuable careers along the way.”

    Molly Ivins: Iran Badge Fabricator Goes to Washington

    Amir Taheri wrote the bogus Op-Ed claiming that Iran has a law requiring Jews to wear yellow badges. But on Tuesday, he was invited to the White House along with other “experts” to give Bush their “honest opinions.” With advice like that, our war in Iran will be a slam-dunk.

    Anatomy of the Iran/Jewish Arm Badge Story

    Want to know the genesis of that bogus story about Iran requiring Jews to wear arm badges? Apparently a public relations firm specializing in promoting neocons was instrumental in placing the story in the National Post. Check out the full account here.
    And then some credulous blog editors—like yours truly—linked to the story before realizing how shoddily sourced it was. Mea Culpa big-time

    Newspaper Retracts Iranian Jewish Arm Badges Story

    The National Post has retracted an article that said Iran planned to force Jews and other non-Muslims to wear distinctive insignia.
    Also, it turns out the author of the article is aligned with many of the same neocons who beat the drums for war with Iraq.

    STORY FALSE: Iran Eyes Badges for Jews, Christians? STORY FALSE.

    Editor’s note: The newspaper that originally ran this report has now retracted it and printed an apology.

    In retrospect, Truthdig should never have linked to this story. We should have realized that its sourcing was highly suspect.
