1,2,3,4... I spy a blog war

Jeffrey Goldberg, national correspondent for The Atlantic, vs Allison Benedikt, the Village Voice editor.

I think it started when Goldberg described a Benedict essay this way "[she]wrote with great feeling about how her camp counselors told her Israel was the best thing since cream cheese, so she believed them, but then later her husband told her they were wrong, that Israel was, in fact, disgusting, so she believed him."

Anyway, its been off to the races for several days already, with warring tweets and posts; today Goldberg even got a Rabbi to weigh in on his side, and Benedikt cursed out a Twitter follower for daring to question her Jewish bonafides. Great stuff!
