I like the China/Tibet analogy

Yakov sent me this old gem from Jewcy, way back in 2007:

"What
if the campus Free Tibet club campaigned for divestment from China?
Would that be anti-Chinese bigotry?" asked Asaf Shtull-Trauring, a
20-year-old student and conscientious objector from the Israeli army to Abe Foxman at NYU, 2005]….

Ultimately, it is the seductive appeal of the ADL's dark visions that most threaten us. American Jewry enjoys privileges undreamed of in Jewish history: we are a more accepted, more integral part of our country than any Jewish community ever has been. We have entered unprecedented territory in Jewish history, and the enticements and possibilities of this new era should be setting our souls alight.

–Joey Kurtzman, in an important July 2007 piece about Abe Foxman and the Anti-Defamation League at Jewcy.
