Antisemitism and Antizionism

-April Rosenblum, a 27-year-old progressive activist, has put out a remarkable pamphlet “Making Resistance to Antisemitism Part of All of Our Movements�. It speaks directly to leftists, including radicals, setting forth what antisemitism is and why it should be opposed. It does include some sharp critiques of American and Israeli policies. (Pintelyid)

-The Iranian Holocaust drama Zero Degree Turn, has been  lauded in the West. But, says Rachel Kantz and Miriam Nissimov, it is “nevertheless laden with problematic messages regarding Jews….fraught with anachronistic discrepancies, and blatantly falsifies the historical realities of the era…fails to address European anti-Semitism and the rise of the Zionist movement…likens Zionism to Nazism by placing them on the same immoral plane.� (The Jerusalem Post)

-The German scholar Matthias Küntzel argues that Muslim anti-Semitism had solid roots in Nazi propaganda. (The New York Times)
