So who is fighting against anti-Semitism these days?
It isn't the ADL.
As we reported a few days ago, the ADL just isn't doing the job it signed itself up to do.
As you recall:
Of course, this isn't the only sign that the ADL is letting us down, only the latest.
We also steered you to a Charles Small video to hear his report on Students for Justice in Palestine. This is important information that you will not hear from the fellow travelers of the mainstream media.
But wait! Sadly, there's more. Because anti-Semitism is on the rise, a group called StopAntisemitism.org has taken over the fight from the ADL since the ADL has turned itself into a generic progressive "anti-hate" organization.
StopAntisemitism.org is serious about fighting antisemitism, and has released a 120 page, very detailed, very well researched report called "The New Anti-Semites." You can find it and download it at: https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5cc20f51ca525b73bdd50e3a/t/5e035aaff6f8a13316601016/1577278302733/The+New+Anti-Semites.pdf
Yes, we are giving you a lot to do and think about, a lengthy video and an even lengthier report. But we should all be aware of what's going on now. A lot of people who haven't been paying attention are surprised at all of the hatred now being directed at Jews (again). It's been rising for years, but Jewish leaders have ignored or downplayed it. In order to help stop this rise, the first step is to be informed. The information is available.
There will be a "Jewish Community Forum on Anti-Semitism" on January 23 at the Holocaust Memorial Center. This is a free event, but you have to register. Register here. Some of us at MJAC have attended other anti-Semitism forums sponsored by our Jewish leaders. They haven't been that great. I don't know if this one will be any better, but some of us will be there.
My advice is to watch the Charles Small interview and read the Stop Antisemitism report before the forum. You will be much better informed, and you will be able to ask the right questions if it turns into a "blame Trump and white supremacists" event.
Remember, our current Jewish leadership has been asleep at the wheel. They've been more interested in progressive politics and outreach to our enemies as long as those enemies shared the same progressive politics. It's up to us to hold them accountable.
