Look, Ed, there is an awful lot of high passion on this issue, and IMO, it’s pretty damned important to vilify or hold accountable the culpable decision-makers and implementers of hateful/violent or despicable acts against ANY grouping of people. It’s equally important to remember not to paint all the members of a group with the same brush you’d paint the malevolent actors with.
I think it’s controversial and difficult, if possible at all, to demarcate clearly the line between anti-Semitism and good faith criticism of heinous actors. In trying to find the “right words” to suggest for use by people like you whom I’m calling out for sounding anti-Semitic, I looked up “Jewish organizations opposed to Israel’s policies.” There are plenty of Jews in Israel and in the US who are opposed to Israel’s violative actions against Palestinians & AIPAC’s lobbying/power; I think you already know about one, Jewish Voice for Peace. The following link came up in the search, and the author expresses relatively well some of what folks should understand. (I don’t necessarily agree 100% with her, but her points are well-taken.)
How about we compromise and when you don’t want to specify Israel, Israeli policies, Israeli right-wing government, AIPAC, etc. and you want to say “Jews,” you qualify it and say “some rightwing Jews”? Because not all Jews belong in the categories you’re talking about…just like not all Americans belong in Dump’s camp of xenophobia, racist, misogynistic, elitist liars. I’m an American alright, but I don’t want to be painted with the brush my Irish, Mexican, or European acquaintances would use to describe our rightwing Cabal “representing America.”
Last point, the vile MSM (whoever the owners be) has been egregiously lying by omission and co-mission to wethepeople for centuries…about MOST things, not just Israeli violations of human lives. You know that.
