They (and by "they" I mean the JVP organization of which the Muzzlewatch site is just a tactic) are simple political partisans, nothing more, nothing less, who are absolutely convinced of their own rightness and virtue on all matters relating to the Middle East. Now there is nothing wrong with partisans having strong convictions (most of us do). But Muzzlewatch is different in its dedication to shutting down the other side of the debate via hypocritical accusations of censorship. Edit
