Harold Ford, for shame! To pull the anti-Semitism card on this site is height -- make that the depths -- of FOXian cheap shots, and oh so wrong.
I have been a passionate kossak for years now. As a fiercely pro-Israel Jew AND lifelong LibDem, I cannot deny I have seen some anti-Israel screed here, mostly in the comment threads and occasionally in certain diaries. But I understand, as does Markos, that this is an ENORMOUS community, one that brings in the widest possible spectrum of views. I also understand that the left wing of American polity will include some voices staunchly critical of Israel, and on occasion those voices cross a line that I would call anti-Semitic.
The thing is, THEY ARE EXTREMELY RARE, and are almost always troll-rated here. AND THAT'S THE KEY, Mr. Ford. Those "anti-Jewish" voices, as you called them (an absurd misnomer, since NO ONE here is anti-Jewish), are uniformly shouted down. Keith Moon, I'm talking to you! So Ford's entire premise is bogus, a falsity within a falsehood.
But you guys already knew all that!
Rock on, Markos!
