Anti-Zionism Anti-Semitism (Stanford)

stanford

The dreary and now almost predictable slipping of anti-Zionism into anti-Semitism continues, this one at Stanford. It’s the idea expressed by a member of the ASSU student Senate that Jewish control of the media and of government is an open question. In addition are attempts by the ASSU to cut the budget of the Jewish Student Association, because they have enough back up money in reserve for such an emergency. For anyone interested, I’m posting a link to a strong opinion piece in the Stanford Daily by senior staff writer Winston Shi condemning the phenomenon. You can read it here.

    is this really a case of slippage or more that antisemites will gladly take advantage of any platform?
