Adam Shatz of the London Review of Books was a speaker at the conference. He repudiated Ungar-Sargon’s claims on twitter:
“I was there, and what provoked the protest wasn’t the fact that the discussion was about anti-Semitism, but that the speaker was Ruth Wisse, a notorious anti-Arab racist and unconditional defender of Israel and its occupation. The notion that this woman from the Forward was protested because she’s Jewish is preposterous. A great number of speakers were Jews who are deeply aware of anti-Semitism – Etienne Balibar, Marc Weitzmann and others. None were protested because they were Jewish, or speaking about anti-Semitism. I would say at least a plurality of the protestors were young Jewish students. It’s also remarkable how right-wingers and defenders of Israel who complain about the ‘victimology’ of Arabs and black people slide so easily into claims of victimhood themselves.”
Thank you for this but FFS quit finding it ‘remarkable’ when right-wingers and defenders of Israel who complain about the ‘victimology’ of Arabs and black people slide so easily into claims of victimhood themselves’, when that’s their go to segue into conversations they take over and twist to immediately make it about themselves. Paid professional victims, not meant to be taken seriously and should not be given the attention they are receiving. Batya, Bari Weiss, Ben Shapiro, et al cut from the same cloth and always make the discussion about victimhood, and as feral zionists, want to make sure that jews are at the top of the victim heap.
