Holocaust / Israel / Leftist betrayal

“To speak the truth on the Left today…”

“To speak the truth on the Left today is to expose oneself to almost certain shunning, political exile, and professional suicide, particularly when it comes to Israel. Few dare to take a closer look, to risk losing one’s place in the progressive community, where Jews are afforded inclusion so long as they renounce the Jewish state, denigrate their history and traditions, disavow the tiny sliver of land by which they have been defined as a people for millennia, and, above all, join in equating the defensive actions of Jews in Israel with those who slaughtered their kind across Europe in the millions—to engage, in fact, in Holocaust denial.”
