I should have a regular section titled Hassan Fattah Watch. It is amazing how his right-wing standards, not to mention his ignorance of Middle East affairs, prevail in everything he writes, even the punctuation. Here, in this article, he interviews two people, and both are right-wing (and, in the context of Lebanese sectarian standards, Christian) Lebanese. One of them, he identifies as professor without telling the readers that he also is a member of Qurnat Shihwan, the Right-wing Christian grouping. Details, mere details for the New York Times. Leave them alone. They are thrilled that they found an Arab Zionist who graduated from the New Republic.
