Here’s a random paragraph by a random anti-Zionist Jew named Robert A. H. Cohen  from a random screed at Mondoweiss:

It’s impossible for even liberal Jewish supporters of Israel to recognise the structural and institutional racism they inhabit while they cling to the idea that only an exclusive Jewish sovereignty in Israel/Palestine can guarantee Jewish security. The longer this idea is treated as a universal law of nature rather than a sorely overrated political ideology, the longer it will take to recognise and then shed a racist mind set.

The key phrase is “exclusive Jewish sovereignty.” He cannot say “exclusive Jewish residency” because, obviously, Israel is 20% non-Jewish. So it is the “exclusive Jewish sovereignty” that is a problem.

But if that is true, then isn’t exclusive Muslim sovereignty an equally racist issue for the 57 Muslim majority states? Nearly all of them reference their Muslim character in their constitutions. Isn’t that a  “racist mind set” by the exact same criteria that are applies to Israel?

No, only Jews can be racist. Which means only Jews can be publicly insulted as being worse than other human beings. Which means that antisemitism is legitimate.

1_czrV1bMn3YQA5dZC9LmhqgJust to bring another example from today about Jews, Muslims and exclusivity, here is Hanan Ashrawi at the PLO website, also today:

Over the past two weeks, Israeli occupation authorities have banned dozens of Palestinians from access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, while facilitating provocative raids by illegal Israeli settlers into the Al-Aqsa Compound and providing protection for their infringements on the holy site.

…Jerusalem’s special status and centrality to world heritage must be protected from such hateful acts. Freedom of worship is also a fundamental right that must not be used as a tool of political repression and colonial aspirations.

She is saying that the Temple Mount must be an exclusively Muslim site, and Jews should be banned from visiting it even to peacefully stroll, let alone pray – while at the same time pretending to care about freedom of worship!  (She also calls all Jews, no matter where they live, “illegal Israeli settlers.”)

By the criteria of the Leftist self-defined anti-racists, isn’t that prima facie evidence of racism?

But the rule is, only Jews can be racists in the Middle East. Arabs cannot be even when they do worse than what the Jews are accused of (falsely, nearly always.)

Which is a modern justification for antisemitism.

The people who claim to be in the forefront against bigotry are the real bigots.
