Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

IHRA is a Sham, and It's a Shame | Tikun Olam - Sept. 2018 |

Lipstadt and IHRA adherents seek to deny that other Semitic peoples face the same discrimination and oppression as Jews.  Further, they seek to singularize anti-Semitism as uniquely Jewish; and to further the claim that Jews face more virulent hate than other groups, especially Muslims and Arabs.  Even more ludicrous is the view that eliminating the hyphen, while maintaining the word "Semitism" in the term, will somehow elide or disguise the fact that Jews are Semites.

Many major media outlets like the NY Times, AP and others have adopted the invented term.  I reject it because it plays into a pro-Israel agenda.

Has always been a poor definition and used to stifle any criticism on the State of Israel. Anti-Zionism or criticism of Israel policy of apartheid is not anti-semitism ...
