Decrying anti-Semitism, Guardian style

I hope you didn't expect al-Guardian to go after the real thing. I hope you don't expect them to expose the anti-Semitism of some of their own columnists and Comment is Free writers. But this is the kind of anti-Semitism the Guardian wants to be against: People who call the likes of Amira Hass, Mikey Lerner, Gideon Levy, Ilan Pappe and Gonen Segev and more than 8000 others "Self-Hating and/or Israel Threatening Jews."

Well, I don't agree with the entire ... list either (I agree with most of the names I recognized), and it's got far too much profanity for my taste. But the .... list is not where I would start to attack anti-Semitism.

And yes, the Guardian writer, Yigal Bronner, has more than earned his place on the list assuming that what they write about him is true.

the Jewish Shitlist on http://www.masada2000.org was compiled in Arizona. JIDF did a search of the domain and it was (and it is hard to tell) a cryogenic corporation. this was last year. now it appears to of changed owners and is controlled by a man by the name of Katz. I really don't like the idea of someone putting together a book with names of Jews.... even if they are traitors.

I agree with you. It's not something I would have done myself.

But it's also not the place I would have picked to start fighting anti-Semitism.
