Smug & smarmy Max Blumenthal moves further right

Smarmy Max Blumenthal

Max Blumenthal who tried to build his career off the backs of Palestinians, is now chasing honoraria on Assadist circuits & fame on Fox News defending Putin. Give him a few years, he’ll be doing Infowars, Global Research, Consortium News, Counterpunch, & will be a regular on Fox News. Tucker Carlson talks the same game. His trajectory is not good but it is a well-trodden path shysters before him have taken.

Now pitiful Max has tweeted objections to The Syria Campaign raising funds for medical facilities in Idlib, Syria. Last August, an MSF/Doctors Without Borders hospital in Idlib was completely destroyed by Syrian or Russian bombers & in April of this year they destroyed two more hospitals in the region. A principle of international law is the neutrality of medical facilities, including hospitals, clinics, field hospitals, medical personnel, & ambulances–although that is flouted habitually by US forces in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, & elsewhere, by Israel in Gaza, & by Syria, Russia & the US in Syria.

If smug & smarmy Max has objections to providing medical care to the 165,000 civilians being bombed to smithereens within the Idlib district, he should take it up the Geneva Conventions & see if he can persuade them to legitimize barbarism. Otherwise he should stfu.
