A world in which UC needs a policy on anti-Semitism – LA Times

Posted By on July 19, 2015

To the editor: Your editorial about the proposed definitions of anti-Semitic actions and speech on University of California campuses raises a more important question: What is it about the societies of California, the United States and even the whole world that makes it necessary for the UC system to have a policy on anti-Semitism? ("How far should UC go with an anti-Semitism policy?," editorial, July 16)

The United Nations has equated Zionism with racism (U.N. General Assembly Resolution 3379, passed in 1975). Why?

Anti-Semitism seems to be a cultural given in our society. Why?

To the editor: I'm a proud, Israel-loving American Jew. I've been to Israel, and I fully support it. But its current government? As we say in my family, Feh!

By the way, I love my own country too. But the George W. Bush administration? Again, Feh!

Governments come and go, but the nation and the people outlive their current administrations and life goes on.

Oh, and those American members of Congress who say they vote with an eye toward what's best for Israel? What would the Israelis call a Knesset member who said she or he would vote first for what's best for America? A traitor.
