Slowly, They Turn
The days turn into years, the years into centuries. People slowly turn as well from complete, outraged denial to gradual, grudging admission. Of course, no one wants to give up their illusions and the mainstream media still do not print the truth about racism--if it is racism against Jews. As we all know, the western media will go on and on and on about racism against Muslims, Arabs, and all peoples of color whose countries have formerly been colonized.
Four years and two months later, after dumping on my 2002 book "The New Anti-Semitism," the Washington Post has just now allowed at least one voice to rebut the Big Lie that there is no anti-Semitism, that to suggest that Jew-hatred is dangerously rising in the world and that anti-Zionism is also the "new" anti-Semitism, is alarmist, misleading, undocumented, etc. Today's op-ed piece, which tackles only two of the false allegations that Walt-Mearsheimer make in their just published Farrar, Strauss title (for which they received $850,000) is here.
