In the United States, the conservative right insists that the only way to combat extremism in the Muslim world is to come out and call it out by name “Radical Islam” or “radical Islamic Extremism.” Maybe the Jewish left should pick up the same card. The only way to fight the occupation is to call it out at its source –“Radical Racist Judaism.” After all, how can you stop something you won’t even name?
