Klein's Only Quoted Source Is Far-Right Terrorist Sympathizer
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Aaron Klein serves up yet another anonymous smear job in an April 8 WorldNetDaily article, this time accusing "Obama spies" of "monitoring ... Jewish construction projects in eastern Jerusalem." Amid the usual murk of anonymous sources making an unverified claim is the article sole named source, David Ha'ivri, benignly described only as "spokesmen [sic] for the Shomron Regional Council in Judea and Samaria."

As we've detailed, Ha'ivri is much more than that. He's a Kahanist -- a movement outlawed in Israel for its support for violence and terrorism -- who, in a 2007 CNN documentary, couldn't be bothered to condemn an plot by far-right Jewish extremists to detonate a bomb outside a Palestinian girls' school.

Isn't it telling that a right-winger like Klein not only feels so close to a far-right terrorist sympathizer like Ha'ivri to freely quote him but to serve as his image consultant by hiding his extremism?
