We must all fight anti-Semitism

I was having a conversation today with a friend and the topic of anti-Semitism came up. The prevalence of this hatred, a European White-on-White violence that devolved over history into genocide, continues in some quarters to this day.

Those of us who are progressives and who maintain a strong critique of Israel must resolutely oppose anti-Semites at every turn, just as, while defending our Muslim brothers and sisters, we must unceasingly oppose the tyrannical governments of and reactionary movements inside any of the predominantly Muslim countries.

Our Jewish brothers and sisters, like our Muslim brothers and sisters, are often excellent allies in the struggle for a better world, and I’m proud to call journalists such as Amy Goodman, Jeff Cohen and Greg Palast, writers such as David Simon, and analysts such as Noam Chomsky, among my heroes.

In the spirit of that conversation, below is a list of what I hope are some helpful resources.

Fighting anti-Semitism

Hey,

I won't be able to catch the show, but be sure you ask Mr Palast about "caging", and how many of us suspect that it's a large part of what the scandal involving the firing of 8 US District Attorneys is all about.
