View Diary: How do I say this without seeming anti-Semitic? (267 comments)

  •  Yes, that is true. (5+ / 0-)

    But my input carries little weight both here and in the real world.  American Jews who provide Israel unwavering support are not ready to bring Palestinians or anyone else into the tent.  They have to attack dissident Jews because they undermine "support" for Israel.  This is why your diary is so very important.  An essay like this could not be written by a non-Jew.  

    You have correctly assessed that there are well-organized individuals on this blog that will attempt to shut down discussion of I/P under this new moderation system.  However, we also have an opportunity.  What the new moderation system does is allow us to educate the community about what is truly antisemitic (and truly anti-Arab and anti-Muslim) in the process of reviewing flagged comments.  This is a smart community and if Jews like you stand up to abuses of the antisemitic smear, our community will be better informed for it.
    It is too bad that this type of discussion comes after several of very limited number of Palestinian and Arab contributors have been banned or run away from the site.  

    I take responsibility for what I say. I do not take responsibility for what you understand.
