Intellectual laziness

Reader comment on item: The Problem with Middle East Studies

You were rather gentle towards the two academics in your comment #3. I'll bet you a beer that Halabi didn't even read your original article and based his "subjective understanding" solely on Sadowski's piece. This intellectual laziness is compatible with his perception that he has the right to understand an issue in any way that fits his pre-conception even in the face of evidence to the contrary.
