When does ‘progressive’ criticism of Israeli policy go to far? Certainly if it becomes antisemitic. The ADL, concerned about increasing left-wing antisemitism is sponsoring a day-long conference in San Francisco this Sunday (28 January) to discuss the phenomenon.
The organizers want to get a ‘spectrum of opinion’ from the Jewish community and co-sponsors include the ADL, the AIPAC, Americans for Peace Now and the Jewish Labor Committee. They notably do not include Jewish Voice for Peace or Tikkun. The fact that the conference is being held on the same day as planned antiwar demonstrations — including one in San Francisco — will probably decrease participation of left-wing groups.
FresnoZionism.org will be there.
