The Jewish Left Needs To Call Out Real Anti-Semites Like Christopher Bollyn

The fact that the Brooklyn Commons, a progressive community space and café in New York, has refused to cancel an event with 9/11 conspiracy theorist Christopher Bollyn — despite calls from Jewish and non-Jewish progressive organizations and media outlets — reveals a couple of important things about the conversation around rising anti-Semitism happening in the U.S. today.

First, that the rising anti-Semitism we should all be concerned about is the white nationalist, “alt-right” kind that Bollyn propagates, not the anti-Zionism of supporters of Palestinian rights. And second, that Jewish organizations can help make that distinction for our communities and our allies so that we can fight bigotry and oppression together.
