Good to know that anti semitism doesn’t hurt Jews
I don't get it. What's hurryupharry and how does it relate?
I haven't forgotten the points made directly to me by Nick and Dougie, by the way. I intend to reply properly but it may be some time next week. Loads on at work this week.
Harry's Place is a blog that calls out extremism on the Right and Left, but almost entirely perceived anti-Israel extremism on the left.
Like Nick they are in favour of a 2 state solution to that and see the biggest threat to that coming from left wingers engaging with Palestinians for some reason.
In this case they have willfully misinterpreted a post from Greenstein that in effect says that idiots who make anti-Semitic statements on line in the UK do more damage to left wing anti-Zionists than Jewsish Zionists in the UK to pretend that he thinks that anti-Semitism does not and never has harm Jews.
In all this it is often easy to forget that Tony Greenstein is actually Jewish, although, in that peculiar brand of anti-Semitism that is never called out, he is apparently a "self hating Jew".
He is just a Jew who thinks socialist internationalism is the most important of all things and all nationalism, including Zionism, is inimicable to that.
