Antisemitism: a footnote

David Seaton's News Links
Note to readers:
Antisemitism does exist. What is unacceptable is to lump ex-president and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State, James Baker with the brutish skinheads and "lager louts", who desecrate Jewish cemeteries and firebomb synagogues. This hysterical, attack dog strategy, with its Stalinist overtones, is debasing language to a point where "genteel antisemitism" may make a comeback. Is that what AIPAC and the ADL want? These strategies are neurotic and self-destructive. The debate is inevitably going to take place because America is being defeated in a war, whose origins are unclear. It would be good if America didn't turn into a mega-Bosnia because of it. DS
