WND Finally Refers to Aaron Klein Source as “Extremist”

…but it’s probably just an oversight

WorldNetDaily reports on today’s announcement that Michael Savage is now banned from the UK:

Talk radio host Michael Savage is considering legal action against Britain’s top homeland security official after she released today a list grouping him with terrorists and neo-Nazi murderers banned from entry because the government believes their views might provoke violence.

…The others on the list are Jewish extremist Mike Guzovsky…

Guzovsky’s name has appeared on WorldNetDaily previously, in a 2004 article by Aaron Klein which suggested the extremist label was unfair; subsequent puff-pieces by Klein have preferred to use his Israeli name, Yekutel Ben Yaacov. Today’s article (not by Klein) is the first WND piece to describe Guzovsky as an “extremist”. Doubtless Klein – recent author of The Late Great State of Israel: How Enemies Within and Without Threaten the Jewish Nation’s Survival – will explain it all to us in due course.

As a result of today’s announcement, I’ve received a bump in hits to my 2006 piece on Klein and Guzovsky; this can be seen here, and a more developed piece by Terry Krepel here.

Variants of Guzovsky’s names in English include: Yekutel Ben Yaacov; Yekutiel Ben Yacov; Yekutiel Ben Yaacov; Mike Guzofsky; Yekutiel Ben Yaacov; Yekutiel Ben Yaakov; Yekutiel Ben Ya’acov; Yekutiel Ben Ya’akov; Yekutiel Ben Yakov; Yekutiel Ben Yacov; Yekutiel Guzofsky; Yekutiel Guzovsky; Mike Guzofsky; Mike Guzovsky; Michael Guzofsky. One website calls him “Mike Rosowski”; this is an error. A New Yorker article also clarifies that Ya’akov is Guzofsky.
