Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Ezra Klein On Israel

The problem with couching any criticism of Israel in terms of antisemitism is that it cuts off dialogue.  All that's left is for Jews to carry on a conversation with themselves, since criticism from non-Jews is made taboo.

That makes Klein's piece, and the Chait piece he links to, very important.
