Letter to a Progressive Friend

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

About the Author: 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.
