They have been fantastically successful, surely. In most Western nations, they have influence way, way, beyond what would be warranted by their numbers. And their influence is growing by the week - as witnessed by the number of states that are forbidding criticism of Israel, for instance. Some US states have even outlawed adherence to the BDS movement.

I mean, wtf? Do people still really think this way? No wonder it's so easy for the Right to advance, if so.
He must be one of those deceptive Jews!

It still exists, it never went away. I mean when you really think about it, we didnt go to war in the 40s because the Nazis were killing Jews. Anti-Semitism was widespread in "cultured" Europe before WWII.

Some pretty hare brained attempts in this thread to push Jewish people into one big fat homogeneous bucket. That's sorta where the problem of anti-semitism started, isn't it?

I would have described him more as an anarcho-hippie from Devon.

Oh yes, it was definitely widespread and well-supported in the UK, too. I do worry about the resurgence of smart, new, digitally-driven anti-semitic movement though.

You'd better tell him to shape up and fit that label, dammit!

Somewhere between The Clash and The Grateful Dead.

The human weakness for clannishness seems unending

And piggy backing on the anti-Israeli sentiment.

Sounds like the Alex Jones anti-semitism.

Now, if he's part of an anarcho-hippie tribe he must be a fellow Totnesian, all other anarcho-hippie Devonians are pretenders.
All Devonians should be able to agree with that statement!

I can't see anybody trying to push the Jews into a homogeneous bucket, at all. There are at least two major, major divisions - those who are blindly loyal to Israel and everything it does, and those who aren't . There are plenty of human-rights-oriented Jews - Stephen Lendman and Mondoweiss are two of the more popular bloggers, and B'Tselem as an organisation, and of course the sponsors of the BDS movement. Regrettably, there are many anti-human-rights ones who approve of Israel's occupation of Palestinian lands and the atrocities visited on the native people. The Israel-loyalists are an embarrassment to the rest, and it is they (the pro-Israel lot) who attract anti-Jewish sentiments - in the same way and for the same reasons that Islamist extremists attract anti-Moslem sentiments.
That's pretty clear, isn't it? (I presume that all Jews and their spouses on this thread identify with the good guys, of course. I certainly hope so. And, yes, any Moslems and any Christians likewise! Heathens too: we have our rogues as well...)

Here is a map of the Middle East, lots of nasty stuff going on and we can argue where Israel is on the scale but lets put that aside for one moment.

It is difficult to even spot Israel on this map yet in some circles it seems to be the total focus, makes you wonder what that is.

Why the silence on the rest, where are the Divestment and Boycott campaigns?
