Goldberg Won’t Shut Up Either

I spoke too soon. So did Jeffrey Goldberg, for that matter.

His promise to stop blogging on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is about as serious as Bibi Netanyahu’s commitment to a viable Palestinian state. And he’s pulling out all the stops, including republishing a chunk of Yossi Klein Helavi’s New Republic piece blaming Obama for what shall heretofore be known as ‘The Row.”

(The above sentence is full of links where Goldberg wrote about Israel since his vow not to. In fairness to him, he said he would continue, but with reported blogposts. It appears he did do a little reporting for one of those posts.)
