I mostly enjoyed this column by Roger Cohen about his upbringing as a Jew in South Africa, except for this:
Hatred of Muslims in Europe and the United States is a growing political industry. It’s odious, dangerous and racist. Thanks to my colleague Andrea Elliott, we now know the story of the orchestration of the successful anti-Shariah campaign in the United States, led by a Hasidic Jew named David Yerushalmi who holds that “most of the fundamental differences between the races are genetic.” The rightists in Europe using anti-Muslim rhetoric are true heirs to the Continent’s darkest hours.
We don't know that because of Andrea Elliott. We know it because of Matt Duss, even if The New York Times pretends otherwise.
