(Community Matters) I’m sympathetic w/ my fiends about anti-Semitism. And I’m not surprised by the critics; when I read her Sunday column (which I blogged about – God Save Us), I imagined this might happen. It has certainly worried me that someone might similarly misunderstand my criticisms.
When people feel threatened, misunderstood, not heard and/or ignored, we grasp. Anti-Semitism is alive and growing in many parts of the world & that’s a real threat. Pointing out the fallacy of Netanyahu’s too-heavy-handed, disrespectful behavior toward our nation’s leader is not anti-Semitic – nor is warning against the return of neocons.
