← Human Rights Watch – You are Disgusting!

Furthermore, upon inspection of Namazie's blog I am struck by the fact that when referencing Kenneth Roth's essay, the link she provides takes us to a short Reuters news story rather than directly to Roth's essay itself. That is pretty bad form isn't it? If I wanted to write a polemic criticising somebody elses essay, then I would provide a link to the essay I was criticising! Not to a second-hand recycling by a news agency. Why is Namazie reluctant to send readers in the direction of the essay?

I wonder how many of those who have already joined the criticism on this thread have actually read Roth's essay before jumping in? Now might be a good time to do so:
