Alex.S BS: Anti-Semitism & The Left (269* d) RE: BS: Anti-Semitism & The Left 10 Mar 04


Well, I am Jewish (I know this is often a tough concept to the unititiated, but I mean this more culturally/thnically than religiously). Here in LA, most of the people I meet are what one might call members of the "liberal intelligentsia" and many are, in fact, Jewish.

Not once in my life have I encountered any real anti-semitism. We must draw a careful distinction between anti-semitism and anti-zionism, the latter being far more common, and then only in the far left (socialist types).

It's too bad, because several decades ago Jews and socialism mixed nicely (and here, at least, they still do). But, I hear from friends at UC Berkeley (That university bastion of academic liberalism)that anti-zionism is now widespread.
