  1. Hi, Jeffrey

    Did you see the Lee Smith's article about anti-Semitic publications and comments in mainstream media http://www.tabletmag.com/news-and-politics/40064/mainstreaming-hate/ ?

    He points to the very important reasons for it: anti-Semitism attracts traffic the same as sex and celebrity gossip. Also, he notices that spewing publicly anti-Semitic remarks satisfies need of nobodies to feel important, legitimate. All publications now have to compete for this mob to get the traffic.

    It seems, American Jewish organizations are completely unprepared to deal with it.

  2. Thanks very much, Marina.

    Not only are American Jewish organizations unprepared to deal with it, I am discovering that they are unwilling to deal with it. I plan to provide a few more details in my next blog entry.

  3. A pity that so many of these organizations cling to routine and fund raising, while ignoring the threat that brews around them.
