The worst piece of journalism so far in 2009

Elizabeth Wurtzel wins this category with her incredibly terrible article on the Gaza attacks.

Standing against a tide of hatred
It is not Israel’s action, but the vitriolic reaction to it that has been disproportionate. There’s only one explanation: antisemitism

As it is my good fortune to be American, I live in the only country that as a matter of policy is pro-Israel regardless of party allegiance; Democrats and Republicans equally unite behind the blue-and-white. But to communicate with anyone I think of as rightminded (and left-leaning) in any other part of the world is to experience the purest antisemitism since the Nazi era.

Um.. WTF??!! Is she seriously comparing the massacre of six million people to expressing an opinion of disagreement with the death of innocent civilians in Gaza?
