CJN Cover Story Question: "Is Ezra Levant Good for the Jews?"

Read it here. And here's the letter I wrote in response:
I am not going to delve into the question of whether or not Ezra Levant is "good for the Jews." I would merely point out that such a query would never be posed about, say, Peter Beinart, or another high-profile Jew who is known to situate himself on the so-called progressive side of the political spectrum. Which is to say, a hardcore leftist Jew who withholds his full-throated approval of and support for Israel pending its' becoming much more reflective of his own values, attitudes and beliefs.

I would also suggest that posing such a query--is so-and-so "good for the Jews"?--says a lot more about the mindset of the individual doing the asking that it does about the person whose "goodness"/"badness" is being called into question.

Ha'aretz already asked whether Beinart was good for Jews.
