The academic world in the US, particularly the ‘better’ colleges and universities are suffused with anti-Israel sentiment. In addition to the Jewish anti-Zionists mentioned above, there are more and more Middle Eastern academics — in many cases, in ‘Mideast Studies’ departments funded by grants from Saudi Arabia — who use their academic freedom to agitate against the Jewish state.

A whole propaganda industry has now developed, pumping out atrocity stories to an eager public, which has by now become prepared to believe anything bad about Israel, no matter how outlandishly false or exaggerated.

Well-educated people like you, who empathize with the oppressed, are perfect targets for the Big Lie.

I am asking you to do just one thing: please entertain the idea that maybe you are wrong about this. I can point you at reliable sources. It’s always possible to admit that you’ve been wrong, even admirable.

Oh, the woman I mentioned who was opposed to legal abortion? She’s still a leftist, still a feminist — and she’s pro-Israel, too.

Vic Rosenthal created FresnoZionism.org to provide a forum for publishing and discussing issues about Israel and the Mideast conflict, especially where there is a local connection. Rosenthal believes that America’s interests are best served by supporting the democratic state of Israel, the front line in the struggle between Western civilization and radical Islam. The viewpoint is not intended to be liberal or conservative — just pro-Israel.

  1. Arabs didn’t come to the region of Palestine until 638 CE and, by the way, Arabs are not indigenous to Palestine; Arabs are indigenous to (guess where!) (Saudi) ARABIA; that’s why they’re called ARABS!!!

    All these “progressives” can’t seem to be able to tell me how Arab wound up in what is today Mauritania, 5,000 kilometers away from Arabia.

    The people who CAN tell me about how Arabs came to conquer these regions are called Berbers, (actually a racist Arab name; Berbers call themselves “Imazighen”) Copts, Nubians, Phoenicians, Assyrians and Chaldeans; somehow, the progressives never seem to concern themselves with these indigenous peoples who have been living under Arab rule for centuries.

    A recent “Pew Poll” conducted in Egypt in light of “The Arab Spring” shows that over 80% of Muslim Arab men do NOT want Copts and women to have civil rights equal to themselves; you will notice that “The Progressives” are again, nowhere to be found.

  2. I wish all Progressive Jews that put liberalism before Judaism would read this article. There seems to be a growing trend fostered within the USA to give equal weight to the liberal agenda as if it is one and the same with Reformed Judaism.
