BDS is entering the Jewish communal sphere, as Jews press to debate the use of boycott of Israel to curb its behavior. Even as a Jewish Reconstructionist site rejected an essay it sought from Rabbi...

I have a new piece on +Mondoweiss dissecting the dismaying appeal of Matti Friedman's Tablet Magazine essay denouncing coverage of Israel's summer assault on Gaza. 
The Gaza war and collapse of the peace process destroyed liberal Zionists' cherished vision of an egalitarian Jewish democracy, forcing many of Israel's defenders to embrace the raw Islamophobia of ex-AP reporter Matti Friedman's Tablet essay that blamed coverage of Operation Protective Edge in the media on ant-Semitism.

"Let It Bleed" indeed. I respond to Roger Cohen's blithe dismissal of clear evidence that Israel practices apartheid, and his support for the Rolling Stones' disgraceful violation of the boycott.
Mick Jagger was right to play Tel Aviv. Israel has been ill-served by its enemies and its friends.

Please sign the official White House petition to reject any pardon for traitor Jonathan Pollard , whose release would allow Israel to signal that they take care of their spies and get them out.

My piece on Joe Klein and Jodi Rudoren's attempts to explain away Israeli racism in the wake of Netanyahu's victory.
We're not going to solve the Israeli-Palestinian problem this morning, WNYC public radio host Brian Lehrer told listeners Monday at the close of his all-Jewish discussion with NY Times Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren and Time columnist Joe Klein about the Netanyahu victory aftermath. They might have come a little closer if his guests had included a Palestinian instead of two Zionists. Klein called Netanyahu's race-baiting Election Day speech ...

Lisa Duggan, president of the American Studies Association, defends the ASA's support of the academic boycott of Israel as a nonviolent form of resistance.
This past weekend, American Studies Assn. members held our annual conference in Los Angeles, with the theme "The Fun and the Fury." Those familiar with the ASA mainly because of news about our year-old academic boycott of Israel might be surprised by our sessions ranging from "Vanguardist Jazz in the Seventies" to "Selfie Nation" -- all engaging topics that are intrinsic to the field of American studies.

False equivalence, Orwell-style: NYT now says James Baker gave out the White House switchboard number and told Israelis "and Palestinians" to "call us when you are serious about peace" in 1990. As +Ali Abunimah clearly shows and the NYTimes reported then, Baker was addressing only Israel.
The New York Times rewrites history of a famous incident to claim US Secretary of State James Baker publicly rebuked Israelis and Palestinians, when in fact his rebuke was only aimed at Israel.
