Am I Still From Over There?

Today is important. Not only because there are flagrant human rights abuses, but also because those of us that wander have lost and will continue to lose. Those of us that are first generation might have experienced visits or the scattered memories of our parents, but that loss, that inability to return, is one that will continue to be passed through generations.

Why Israel Will Miss Fayyad and You Should Too

Toby Greene

It may seem strange that Israelis seem far more concerned about the resignation of Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad than the Palestinians. Israelis, along with the US and European states, value Fayyad - a former IMF economist who has been focused on building a Palestinian state from the ground up and has shown little interest in posturing at the UN.

Scary: How a Blog on Anti-Semitism Generated More Anti-Semitism

Dan Ehrlich | Posted 02.06.2013 | UK Politics
Dan Ehrlich

Just before Easter I wrote a blog on the causes of anti-Semitism as an adjunct to a piece done earlier by Mehdi Hasan. It wasn't particularly controversial. Yet, from most of the comments received one can visualize how some racism spreads through a lack of current events knowledge, revisionist history and just plain bigotry.

Anti-Semitism? Not at Our Dinner Table

While I support Mehdi for ‎taking a stand against anti-Semitism and urging Muslims to be as diligent in denouncing it as ‎they are Islamophobia, I reject the presumed community complicity implied by his reference to ‎‎"our dirty little secret". ‎

The Sorry Truth Is That the Virus of Anti-Semitism Has Infected the British Muslim Community

Mehdi Hasan | Posted 21.05.2013 | UK Politics
Mehdi Hasan

It pains me to have to admit this but anti-Semitism isn't just tolerated in some sections of the British Muslim community; it's routine and commonplace. Any Muslims reading this article - if they are honest with themselves - will know instantly what I am referring to. It's our dirty little secret. You could call it the banality of Muslim anti-Semitism.

In some ways it's not surprising that the ideas and concepts of thinkers eclipse the people themselves, but to overlook the very human grounding of these notions is to enshrine a vision of ideas as somehow supra-human.

It has not escaped my attention that, since discourteously walking out on an event I had spent much time and effort organising, you have been claiming repeatedly that I had "misled" and "deceived" you. I was not intending on replying until I saw you once again attempt to, in my opinion, slander me on Press TV.
