MOSLEM ANTI-SEMITISM IS BACK WITH A VENGENCE
Here are some pertinent lines:
It would be wrong to suggest that the antiglobalization movement has been hijacked by anti-Semitic forces, but, as Strauss writes,"it helps enable anti-Semitism by peddling conspiracy theories." Some of the conspiracy theories would be laughable if so many people didn't believe them. For example, the Canadian-based Center for Research on Globalization sells books that claim the 9/11 terrorist attacks were"most likely a special covert action" to"further the goals of corporate globalization." People who believe that will believe anything, including the garbage about Jews being the hidden hand controlling the global economy.
It is disturbing that so few leaders of the antiglobalization movement have spoken out against the ugly displays of anti-Semitism within its ranks."The very same antiglobalization movement that prides itself on staging counterprotests against neo-Nazis who crash their rallies links arms with protesters who wave the swastika in the name of Palestinian rights," Strauss writes.
