Thanks, as usual, to the wonderful NRO readers. A well named Mr. Goad pointed out to me that the BBC seemingly didn’t even do research, because the story of the feud between the two residents of the Kabul synagogue ran three years ago in an AP report on the liberation of Afghanistan from the Taliban.

Except that the AP reporter knew that the Torah is a scroll (not, as the ignoramus from the BBC said, “the holy book, The Torah”), and never suggested that the two were contesting “control” over the synagogue.

Here’s the link, via Fox News.
