Is it love or hate?

By Simon Round, January 22, 2009

The New York Post has accused singer Courtney Love (the widow of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain) of antisemitism.

In an article for Jewish magazine Heeb, Love (who is Jewish) said: “Every time you buy a Nirvana record part of that money is not going to Kurt’s child or to me, it’s going to... a handful of Jew loan officers, Jew private banks, it’s going to lawyers who are also bankers.”

Heeb publisher Joshua Neuman reckoned the Post should keep its opinions to itself. In a comment on the magazine’s blogsite, Neuman wrote: “Like it or not, this is how Jews talk to Jews.” Is it?
