Insofar as _Ms._ Magazine is not _Heeb_ Magazine, Jewdar is not inclined to read it in the first place. However, now we are now tempted to get a subscription just so we can cancel it. Apparently, The American Jewish Congress wanted to run a fairly inoffensive, if rather bland “ad”:http://www.ajcongress.org/site/DocServer/Ms.pdf?docID=1961 in the magazine, highlighting the prominent role played by women in Israeli government. Seems reasonable to us. Apparently not to _Ms._, which “refused to run the ad.”:http://jta.org/cgi-bin/iowa/breaking/106349.html We have to say, we don’t find the magazine’s official excuse to be particularly compelling. You can’t run it because two of the women featured in it are from the same party, thus showing favoritism? Doesn’t that imply that the third is from another party? Doesn’t that, by definition, make it _bipartisan_? Jewdar can be as squishily lefty as the next guy, but it is moments like this that remind us why, when it comes to Israel, the left has done such an awesomely good job of alienating Jews who would normally support it.
