Two Types of Anti-Semitism

Contrary to much conventional thinking that treats ‘anti-Semitism’ as exclusively a form of ethnic hatred, there is a second kind of attitude that is alleged to be ‘anti-Semitism’ because it is critical, often justifiably so, of Zionism and Israel’s policies and practices. This second type of supposed anti-Semitism is a tactic deployed to discredit critics of Israel...

The two tooth advantage

The plume of a great doom now looms. Talking about that wonderfully hideous first Monday in September- Labor Day.
