A short thread on key arguments in my new book Whatever Happened to Antisemitism? Redefinition and the Myth of the ‘Collective Jew’ which you can buy direct from Pluto Press here /1 plutobooks.com/9780745338774/…
Discussion about #antisemitism is plagued by confusion and bitter argument. In his endorsement of my book @PeterBeinart calls contemporary debate on it ‘both incoherent and appalling . . . a hot mess.’/2
Yet we were told that the 2016 International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (#IHRA) ‘working definition’ of #antisemitism had brought ‘international gold standard’ clarity to its contemporary meaning; that without IHRA it wasn’t possible to fight antisemitism./3

After a recent speech I made, some took issue with my comparing the antisemitic threat of anti-Zionist orgs, ie @NationalSJP, to that posed by far-right extremist orgs. In a recent @TimesofIsrael piece, I explain how & why anti-Zionism is #antisemitism. 🧵blogs.timesofisrael.com/you-dont-need-…
To be fair, the threats of the far-left & extreme-right are very different. As @ADL's documented for yrs, far-right extremism is a singularly lethal threat to the Jewish community, other marginalized communities, & to America. But the anti-Zionist far-left is also a major issue.
First, let's define our terms. #Zionism = belief that the Jewish people have the right to self-determination & statehood in their ancestral homeland. The yearning to return to Zion (the biblical term for Israel) has been central to Judaism and Jewish identity for 1000s of years.

Lee Anderson, who attended #antisemitism awareness training after being an active member of a FB group in which other members supported Tommy Robinson & promoted Soros conspiracy theories. He also who signed a letter using the antisemitic conspiracy theory of "cultural Marxism". ImageImage
In 2012, Nadine Dorries labelled footballers ‘overpaid’, ‘over-sensitive’ & ‘swearing cry babies’, & in 2020 Boris Johnson refused to condemn supporters who booed England, Priti Patel said she was against ‘gesture politics’, & Lee Anderson boycotted England games in the Euros.
Confused moronic culture war populist nationalist Tory MP Lee Anderson confirmed that he refused to watch England in the #EURO2020 final because he was boycotting their matches over the players’ decision to stand up to racism by taking the knee.

At #VNLS2022 today, I made it clear that antizionism is antisemitism. And ADL will act against antizionist extremists just as we have against other extremists from the right and the left. adl.org/news/remarks-b…
SJP, JVP & CAIR epitomize the Radical Left, the photo inverse of the Extreme Right. They might not have engaged in an insurrection designed to topple our government, yet they unapologetically denigrate & dehumanize Jews. Vicious rhetoric is not an abstract issue. It is dangerous.
No matter where #antisemitism comes from, @ADL will remain vigilant to expose those who promote hate. And we will remain hopeful in our goal to foster communities that are caring and create a country that is welcoming to all.

In March, our SU's Liberation Officer, our "representative on all matters relating to equality", endorsed Shaima Dallali for @nusuk President.

Here's why that's a problem 🧵
Shaima is under investigation for antisemitism, having written an article praising Yusuf al-Qaradawi (who supported the killing of LGBTQ+ people and Jews) as a "moral compass to the Muslim community", among other potentially antisemitic actions and statements.
It's alarming that @LeicesterUnion's "representative on all matters relating to equality, diversity, and liberation" is endorsing them, and though it's possible they didn't know about Dallali's problematic actions when they endorsed her, they now know and have said nothing.

A @TelAvivUni study, covered by @BBCNews, reported a global rise in #antisemitism. The study notes that social media plays "an exceptionally alarming role" in the rise. I must share my thoughts on how misleading headlines on the ISR-PAL conflict inflame antisemitism... 🧵(1/10)
I've noticed that it is often very difficult for various media outlets to explicitly state that Israelis are victims of violence by Palestinians. Much more often though, we see headlines state it the other way round. 🧵(2/10)
Here are three recent examples:
1) “Israel Strikes Gaza after rocket attack”
Where was the rocket fired from?
Who was its target?
Who fired the rocket?

A critique of David Hirsh's argument that #Antizionism is #Antisemitism 🧵 1/x
A couple weeks back during Israel's renewed attack on Al Aqsa, I replied to a tweet of David Hirsh with the question what definition of Zionism he adheres to. Replying, he suggested I read a paper he wrote in 2021 because he won’t give me a ““correct” definition of Zionism”. 2/x
As I was genuinely interested I gave his paper a read. You can find the paper here (tinyurl.com/bdd9bter) and read the abstract below:

1) Hey, #MESA, it's not #antisemitism, huh? Well, I'm sure then you must be endorsing boycotts of Saudi Arabia for running a police state, treating women like chattel, and giving capital punishment to LGBTQ folks.
2) And I'm sure you endorsing boycotts of Iran for imprisoning&murdering LGBTQ, Bahai, and others, treating its Arab population as 2nd-class citizens, destroying democracy, and threatening to wipe lsrael off the map.
3) And, of you course, you endorse boycotts of Syria whose president also runs a vicious police regime, helped murder 200,000 of his own citizens, used chemical weapons on his own people, and runs massive torture chambers.

@IlskaIren 1. Oligarker är ofta judar, beror på att religionen Judendom uppmanar till grymhet mot icke-juden och bedrägeri, se denna video där prominente rabbi David Bar Chaim beskriver hur man kan ljuga för att komma undan med passivt mord på icke-juden.
odysee.com/@Lasse_Karagia…
@IlskaIren 2. För att bli rik så krävs samarbete och avsaknaden av medkänsla. Historikern Tacitus beskrev 100e.Kr. att Judenheten är extremt lojala mot varandara men hatar resten av världen som vore de fienden, se
jewishvirtuallibrary.org/tacitus-on-the…
@IlskaIren 3. Grymheten mot icke-juden som inte är definierad såsom medmänniska och lojaliteten mot sin nästa (= juden) är inbyggt i religionen.

Putin’s false accusation that Ukraine has a Nazi regime is just the latest example of #RussianPropaganda that involves #antisemitism or Holocaust distortion, often in the form of unfounded Nazi comparisons. A thread:
The most famous Russian #antisemitic propaganda is the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a forgery first disseminated in Russia in 1903, which blames a secret cabal of Jews for much of the world’s problems.
antisemitism.adl.org/power/
Soviet intelligence agents conducted a campaign of covert swastika painting in West Germany in 1959-1960 to support Soviet propaganda that West Germany remained a Nazi state, while the Soviet Union was the true victor over #Nazism.

The idiots just claimed 500,000 people are at Canberra protesting because cookers are dumb and can't math. Fasist flags are being waved and Hells Angels have arrived.

1/15 It’s impossible to read the #shamnesty @Amnesty report and not see the main intention. Demonizing #Israel for being a #Jewish state. The half-truths, hearsay, intensive usage of anti-Israel sources & promoting #ThePalestinianLie is mind boggling. I’ll give it a try.
2/15 Refs made in #shamnesty @Amnesty report should be an eye-opener. Information gathered from external (anti-#Israel) sources is huge. Not a word about state funded terrorism of PA or Hamas. Ergo, Palestinians are good, #Jews are bad.

#ThePalestinianLie
3/15 #shamnesty @Amnesty hitch hikes along the Palestinian land ownership libel, which is proven time after time to be completely incorrect. Also accuses #Israel of Judaization.

🧵Since I first started researching this convoy I have been DISGUSTED by all of the founders, but particularly by Pat King. He is a piece of shit. Actually, shit might be too pleasant of a title for him. So whatever you associate being less/worse then shit. #FluTruxKlanGoHome
Before we begin with explaining the actions we’re going to take, I’m going to give you a brief rundown on why this man child is problematic (other than his obvious threats/ calls for violence)

TW: pretty much anything that’s offensive/harmful to anyone #GoHomeConvoy
Pat King believes that the Government and the United Nations aim for the “depopulation of the anglo Saxon race.”  “Why would they [the Government/U.N.] want to do this?” He states that this is all part of the U.N. 2030 agenda and that it is their “endgame.” #FluTruxKlanGoHome

#Antisemitism of #USSR
Remember, once Nehru & his followers celebrated #USSR & followed it. Same followers are today throwing mud on #Netaji for alliance with Axis Powers.

Let's begin with 1919, when #Lenin brought rules of #Ukraine
2/n Two sources tell us that #Lenin said as below:

"#Jews and city dwellers on the Ukraine must be taken by hedgehog-skin gauntlets (ruled by iron fist) sent to fight on front lines and should never be allowed on any administrative positions."
3/n The sources for it are as below:
1)Time of Darkness - lit. "Dusk" by A. N. Yakovlev
2)The Unknown Lenin: From the Secret Archive, Edited by Richard Pipes

Although in public speeches, #Lenin always spoke against #Antisemitism

1/ The politicization of #Antisemitism is one of the most dangerous things that can happen to the Jewish community. In recent years it has been used as a club by both the left and right to smear others with whom they disagree. I'm not sure which side is more guilty of it.
2/ So I wanted to make this thread to go through some of the major problems this has created for the #Jewish community. First, throwing around the word #antisemitism has watered down the word. Maybe you didn't mean for this to happen, but it seems it has.
3/ If everyone is an antisemite, nobody is an antisemite. That means that this word has been used and abused to the point where it's starting to have no real meaning. And don't get me started on issues about using the term 'Racism' for the hatred of Jews.

POLITICO: Sen Chuck Grassley's ex-staffers wrote to DOJ regarding its letter of determination that Qatar-based Al Jazeera’s digital news outlet AJ+ is required to register as a foreign agent.
documentcloud.org/documents/2119…
DOJ left unanswered three follow-up letters regarding this issue. Despite the initial letter of determination, no action has been taken to enforce AJ+ requirement to be designated under FARA. So far, Al Jazeera manages to get away with not following the #Trump admin's findings.
It appears that the #Biden staffers have "pocket vetoed" the issue of AJ+, despite findings comparing it to Chinese, Russian, and other propaganda outlets that had been forced to comply with the respective recommendations. #Biden's comments to #Qatar's Emim Tamim show why.

A couple of points to make about this July 2020 educational material by @ADL, which everyone is noticing now. In specifying that only whites can be racist, it’s effectively a version of “racism equals prejudice plus power”. And it effectively downgrades #Antisemitism.
In fact, there are good reasons to distinguish #Antisemitism from down-punching forms of bigotry. However, our American awareness of racism centers on antiblack racism, so stipulating that #Antisemitism isn’t “racism” necessarily has the effect of downgrading it in importance.
Stipulating further, by implication, that racism is a unidirectional power-dynamic—i.e. “oppression … hierarchy”—estranges Jews from racial justice thinking. #Antisemitism is a form of racism that punches up against a people who are perceived to have too much “privilege”.
