ANTI-SEMITISM IN THE IVY LEAGUE, CONT’D: Rev. Bruce Shipman’s letter to Yale Daily News and a segue to the progressive left and the roots of anti-Semitism. “Unfortunately, it’s a well-trodden path from devotion to Palestinian nationalism to apologizing for the likes of Hamas to implicitly using growing anti-Semitism in the name of anti-Zionism as a bludgeon against supporters of Israel, as Shipman did in his initial letter, or, worse, to deny that the anti-Semitism exists.”
Perhaps Rev. Shipman will suggest that Muslim countries need to be less violent so that Muslims in Europe will feel safer. “Some Muslims in Northern Ireland have announced plans to leave the country to avoid anti-Islamic violence. The announcement comes after an attack on a Muslim family in the city of Belfast, when crazed rioters broke into their home and assaulted them. . . . BBC reports that hate crimes in the country are up 30% from last year, but successful investigations into attacks has plummeted to 20%.”
But I’m sure he won’t. Only Jews are held responsible for what their co-religionists do overseas.
