A New Term Would End Confusion on Anti-Jewish Prejudice

Historians of ideas have documented three historical phases of Anti-Jewish bigotry; these are known as Anti-Judaism, Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism with the term Anti-Semitism also being used in the more general sense as a word for all three phases. This is profoundly confusing since few people are aware that the term ‘Anti-Semitism’ has two meanings. Furthermore,Continue reading “A New Term Would End Confusion on Anti-Jewish Prejudice”

Why Israel Must Keep its Options Open

There has been tremendous mistrust between the Biden administration and the Israeli government on account of Israel’s strategic intentions vis-a-vis China and America’s strategic intentions vis-a-vis Iran. Israel now understands that there will be no nuclear deal with Iran because Tehran has no interest in such an agreement. The US and Israel are jointly trainingContinue reading “Why Israel Must Keep its Options Open”

Is Palestinian Nationalism Irrational?

Palestinian nationalism is thoroughly based on Anti-Zionism, the third stage of Anti-Jewish bigotry with the earlier stages being Anti-Judaism and Anti-Semitism (in the narrow sense). Palestinian nationalism systematically racializes Jews in terms of all three stages of Anti-Semitism in the broader sense.

Spreading Lies about Jews is Anti-Semitic

What qualifies as Anti-Semitism? There are three historical stages of Anti-Semitism, these are Anti-Judaism, Anti-Semitism (in the narrow historical sense of the term) and Anti-Zionism. The IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) definition has been criticized for being too expansive.

The Jews and the Left

Israel relies on bipartisan support in the United States Congress. Of course, the US-Israeli alliance would survive without congressional support since this special relationship is built upon common interests between the two nations. Saudi Arabia does not enjoy support in the US Congress and presidential candidate Joe Biden was intensely critical of Saudi Arabia. YetContinue reading “The Jews and the Left”

The Case for Jewish Critical Theory

The Jews have always since antiquity been a structurally oppressed group and remain so. There are three historical phases of Anti-Jewish prejudice and those are known to scientists as Anti-Judaism, Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism. However, in common parlance as well as in scientific usage is the term Anti-Semitism used to denote all three stages. There hasContinue reading “The Case for Jewish Critical Theory”
