I fear it is too late to drain the antisemitism swamp

I fear it is too late, except for the one country that will remain a "light unto the nations" - Israel. The enemy has infiltrated our culture everywhere else.

Response to Phyllis Chesler's Op-ed: Is it too late to clear the antisemitism swamp?

Phyllis, you have written a sad but true missive that, to those of us who have accompanied you into the trenches of this culture war for the last 15 years or more, is completely true. You have been a great leader in this cause, just as you were in the cause of women's rights.

How does one answer your question about whether it is too late?

I knew it was too late when my book The Second Catastrophe, warning against a Second Holocaust, (this time at the hands of the Iranians and their allies) was banned in 2003 by Canada's monopoly Jewish-owned book chair, due to taqiyyah from an 18-year-old book clerk, member of the Muslim Brotherhood directed Muslim Students Association - and no Jewish or civil rights organizations would speak out.

I knew it was too late when I lived in Israel for two months during the Second Intifada researching my book, and bombs went off around me every day..

I knew it was too late when my cousin joined JStreet.

I knew it was too late when my pleas to end Israel Apartheid Week were ignored by university presidents and Jews alike.

I knew it was too late when I had to write about Tolerism.

I knew it was too late when I had to write about Submission to the Islamists.

I knew it was too late when no one would use the term "classical liberal".

I knew it was too late when "conservative" became an epithet hurled at those trying to promote Good over Evil.

"Not Dark Yet"

Shadows are fallin' and I've been here all day
It's too hot to sleep and time is runnin' away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I've still got the scars that the sun didn't heal
There's not even room enough to be anywhere
It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

Well, my sense of humanity has gone down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing there's been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writin' what was in her mind
I just don't see why I should even care
It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

Well, I've been to London and I been to gay Paris
I've followed the river and I got to the sea
I've been down on the bottom of the world full of lies
I ain't lookin' for nothin' in anyone's eyes
Sometimes my burden is more than I can bear
It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

I was born here and I'll die here against my will
I know it looks like I'm movin' but I'm standin' still
Every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don't even hear the murmur of a prayer
It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.
