  1. It’s particularly interesting that a lot of the same people refuse to forgive Mahmoud Abbas for an early thesis that pegged him as a “holocaust denier”. It’s another example of how the whole notion of anti-Semitism is becoming politicized. Charles Jacobs, whose whole career consists of accusing the liberal media of anti-semitism, referred to Jewish critics of his “Columbia Unbecoming” film as Marranos.

    There was a time in the U.S. when we really were targets of anti-Semitism. Our response was to make common cause with African Americans and other discriminated groups, and help start the civil rights movement. Now the term is becoming a bludgeon for right-wingers to use against anyone who stands in the way of Israeli expansionism.

    Great post, as always, Richard!
