Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


As a Jewish socialist academic and activist, let me begin this article by saying that two things are an absolutely essential responsibility for the left: support for Palestinians against the Israeli war machine and its apartheid and ethnic cleansing policies; and rooting out antisemitism wherever we find it. Antisemitism, like other forms of racism, is deadly not just for the minority community but for all of us. Not only is it morally unacceptable, but it makes it harder to develop unity and radical alternatives if these ideas take hold. We need to be clear, however, where the real threat comes from.
