We’ve come a long way as women. We’ve fought endlessly for our rights. We’re strong, we’re capable, and we deserve to showcase that. Calling ourselves feminists and activists means understanding that we have no right to discriminate against other minorities. Intersectionality is a beautiful concept; it screams, “I am hurt, so I will help others […]
“No day is promised to us. You don’t know what’s going to happen,” said DeLuca. “There’s no reason to hide who you are.” Last semester, Shai DeLuca, an expert on CityLine and Canada’s number one interior design expert, came to speak at Clark University at an event sponsored and hosted by CAMERA, the Committee for […]
At a recent United Against Terrorism rally in Beverly Hills, Jennifer Karlan, 17, spoke passionately about why American Jews should stand for Israel. With remarkable confidence, she talked about a new form of antisemitism facing American Jews: “Today, they no longer say they hate the Jew; today they say they hate Zionists. Today they no longer say they […]
One of the biggest lies ever told about Zionism is that the subjugation or oppression of the Palestinians is somehow a central tenet of the movement. Jewish Voice for Peace, an anti-Zionist organization with chapters at several universities, posits that “the Zionism that took hold and stands today is a settler-colonial movement, establishing an apartheid state where […]
On March 27, Kennan Institute scholar Izabella Tabarovsky led a discussion at the University of Miami concerning the Soviet roots of modern anti-Zionism sponsored by CAMERA on Campus, Canes for Israel, and UM Hillel. As Tabarovsky writes in an essay for Fathom, the Soviets’ overtly antisemitic campaign “succeeded at emptying Zionism of its meaning as a national liberation movement of […]
When I studied the history of Jews and African-Americans in America, I saw many photos of our ancestors marching together for civil rights. It was evident that they were on the right side of history. Martin Luther King, courageous civil rights leader, spoke at synagogues, believed in the self-determination of the Jewish people, and marched […]
For many of today’s mainstream progressives, opposing the Jewish state is part of a complete breakfast. In order to be progressive, we must stand against the racist Zionist agenda — at least, that’s what we have been taught. But, if you take the time to look deeper, you might be surprised to find that progressivism […]
Twenty years ago, as Yasser Arafat turned many of his people from negotiations back toward terror, I wrote an 800-word essay in the Montreal Gazette “I am a Zionist” that changed my life. It was my Herzl moment: I went from being a proud but quiet Jew and full-time American historian, to a proud but […]
Over the years, I have found many parallels between feminism and Zionism. Both movements are daughters of the Enlightenment. Through emancipation, empowerment and self-determination, both movements have revolutionized the lives of two of the world’s longest and most oppressed peoples. Both have made remarkable and previously unimaginable strides in the 20th century, but remain unfinished […]
There was a time, not so long ago, when there was wide consensus about what antisemitism is and why it should be combatted in all its forms. Manifestations of Jew hatred and anti-Semitic rhetoric were relegated to the fringes of society in the decades following the defeat of the Nazi regime and the exposure of […]
A recent webinar hosted by Bard University Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and Ohio State University SJP featured George Mason and Rutgers professor Noura Erakat, who spoke on Zionism and the State of Israel. Throughout the webinar, Erakat made outlandish and blatantly false remarks, such as labeling Zionism a white supremacy movement. She argued […]
This past fall, Ariella Aisha Azoulay, a guest lecturer from Brown University, was invited to Cornell University’s architecture department to speak to students. Azoulay gave a biased, anti-Zionist presentation titled “Palestine Is There, Where It Has Always Been.” In it, she showed photographs of the early pioneers of the State of Israel working the land, […]
