it's easier for teeth to believe that the pro-israel lobby is just getting taken for a ride in a right-wing antisemitic legislative false flag operation than to believe that they actually support this garbage

this is how the minds or certain people work

I'm sure jewish americans are even more freaked out by the mainstreaming of the alt-right than I am and can imagine being (and as well they should be, since the alt-right are basically pure evil and the tolerance of them does have obvious historical analogs).  I'm guessing that heightened worry is finding some expression through pro-israel activism, for which BDS seems to be a major battle front these days.

Well, isn't the Netanyahu admin taking the line that BDS is as bad as terrorism? They're getting played right-wing anti-semites too...?

A lot of us have just shut up and some of us are exploring ways out of the US. I think you guys are underestimating how much message overlap there is between left and right antisemitism, amd how worried a lot of us are.

Additionally, turning this into a knock-down dragout fight between Jews and the anti-imperialist left will lead to expensive and painful primary battles in key dem states, and 3-5% less turnout from reliable democrat-leaning demographics. This is a dangerous fight for the left to have and it does not benefit civil rights, here or in the Middle East.

That's cool, but it might be useful to consider that it's a problem when you're filtering out Jewish opinions on what is or is not antisemitic based on whether they will self-castigate in order to back your political stance.

A thread about the jews.
Normally, victim mentality is an acquired personality trait.
But with jews, their basic DNA is soaked in victimism.

I told him I didn't understand his point. He explained: "People in Israel are committed to the state of Israel. Either they have moved here because they are committed to Israel or have remained here because they are. So when they read a story about Israeli soldiers and Palestinian children they read it in the context that whatever they read, it is not going to shake their commitment. But people in Australia may not have the same commitment. So when they read a story like this they may question their support for Israel. If I was sitting in Australia reading this I would think that Israeli soldiers were brutally treating Palestinian children." He paused. I said nothing. He continued. "A story like this may damage the view Australians have of Israel and they don't have the commitment to Israel to go along with that."

Why do the supporters of Israel want to ­prevent stories like this from spreading overseas? When we arrived we did not realise the prize that many political factions in the country coveted: formalising the occupation of the West Bank into official annexation and achieving Greater Israel.

As long as Israel insists on maintaining an occupation there will be tensions between journalists reflecting the values of their host countries and Israelis who want to maintain the occupation. The problem is that the media sometimes reports the reality: that it is relentlessly growing settlements, encouraged by financial incentives and a free security service, the IDF.

The only way for powerful groups to manage this, then, is to attack the media. As long as the media is seen as anti-Israel or anti-Semitic, the thinking goes, then Israel is not at fault.

We live at a time when more people are trying to shape reality than report it. The collapse of the traditional newspaper model means there are more people in public relations than journalism, and Israel operates one of the most effective public relations machines in the world. There's a Hebrew word for it: hasbara, or "propaganda". Hasbara is even the name of a government unit.

Ben Cardin responded to the ACLU.

For example, if the United Nations Human Rights Council requests information from an American company about its business dealings in Israel or Israeli-controlled territories as part of an effort to compile a blacklist of companies doing business with Israel, the bill would prohibit the company from responding.

"Prohibit from responding" :unsure:
