I agree completely. Insidious propaganda is always more dangerous than the more blatant kind.

Still, I was taken aback when I first saw that because I was like, “Damn, I knew the guy was a crazy bastard, but even he can’t be that crazy to use such language!”

Then I saw the link to the actual text. Personally, I feel the actual text is somewhat more damning than the edited text now that I think about it. If he actually said the edited text, then everyone with half a brain will see him for what he is. His actual wording is smoother (slimier?) and more manipulative by trying to get sympathy for his anti-semitic viewpoints through pointing out the real and legitimate issues many Palestinians have with the situation in Israel as it stands without condemning the Palestinian wackos who think that blowing up crowded shopping malls in Jewish areas is a good way to get their grievances resolved.

Generally I agree with the point you are making but it’s not like SMASH didn’t clearly state that he made up the last line, and he also linked to the full text of the letter so anyone who wasn’t too lazy to read the whole thing could easily see the actual wording.

The guy is a creep and an anti-semite. However, the editing of his letter than you did link to is admittedly that posters view of the letter, not the actual letter himself. If you’re going to criticize someone, now matter how detestable he may be, you should on the words he actually said, not on one person’s interpretations of those words.
