The assault on BDS in the US and the rise of Democratic Party organizations to support Israel are evidence of the progress on the Palestine issue in the U.S. in the last decade.

This is where the struggle really needs to be, in Washington; and we can thank Benjamin Netanyahu and Bari Weiss for the damage they’ve done to their own cause.

ews are only safe walking around the West Village because Israel exists, and it’s “insane” not to understand this, says Bari Weiss of the NYT. She also says Jewish donors should stop giving money to “prestige” schools so as to fight for Israel. “The idea that there are very wealthy Jews giving their money to places that actively employ antisemitic professors is astonishing to me,” she says.

Atlantic editor Jeffrey Goldberg derides American political culture as ignorant and ahistorical and says he is a “misanthrope”, while extolling Zionism. “All of Judaism is Zionism because we are a universal religion focused on a very particular place.” Anti-Zionism is essentially murderous, he said, aimed at the “soul” of the Jewish people.
