Sheldon Richman comes back on the show to discuss the latest in his article series on anti-semitism in America. He explains the ways in which pro-Israel groups conflate any criticism of Israel’s policies with genuine anti-semitism in order to make those views unpopular. Although often led by conservative groups, this attitude enjoys support from the left both in politics and on college campuses.
Discussed on the show:
- “TGIF: Anti-Israelism and Anti-Semitism: The Invidious Conflation” (Libertarian Institute)
- S.2940 – Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of 2018
- International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance
- Office for Civil Rights
- Kenneth Marcus
- Canary Mission
