JPost's Village Idiot is Run Out of Town................by Dan Friedman

If you read the Jerusalem Post regularly the name Larry Derfner should sound familiar. He writes a column entitled “Rattling the Cage” which I liked because it meant he was safely inside. Now it seems he got out for a day and it’s cost him his job. Something he wrote justifying the murder of Jews by Palestinians didn’t sit well with his editors and a colleague.

I certainly hope the news is true, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it isn’t. The only source for the story is Derfner’s own blog, and it’s been ages since anyone has taken that clown seriously.

Over at Big Journalism they have all the details.
