Opinion | Thank Ye Very Much

Oftentimes, attacks on Jews are seen as regrettable but somehow understandable expression of anger towards Israel. In May 2021, Jewish diners at a sushi restaurant in Los Angeles were physically attacked by a member of a group that, according to one witness, were chanting “Death to the Jews” and “Death to the Jews” Free Palestine”. A KABC report on the event was partially titled: “Minimal tension leads to LA . fight. “

The suggestion that “Minimum Tension” leads to “fights” is to obscure both the nature and motives of the attack. Imagine the absurdity of a headline that reads: “High crime levels in minority neighborhood cause Sheriff to kneel on men’s necks for 8 minutes.”

Actually, Ye, you can figure it out, because you also blamed George Floyd for his own death. But it is worth pondering the extent to which in American culture today, Jews are excluded from inclusion and included in the excluded group. That is, the status of Jews as a persecuted minority is increasingly not recognized, while the position of Jews as a legitimate target for contempt and ostracism is increasingly accepted. .

Head to Hollywood, where the new Motion Picture Academy Museum opened last year with a board dedicated to “Creating a More Inclusive Museum.” However, as Adam Nagourney of The Times Report in March, “Through dozens of exhibits and rooms, there is hardly a mention of Harry and Jack Warner, Adolph Zukor, Samuel Goldwyn or Louis B. Mayer”—the Jews who essentially founded the film industry. modern. (After outcry, the museum now plans to hold a permanent exhibit for them.)

Or the University of California, Berkeley law school, where nine student groups announced in August that they would not host any speakers advocating Zionism, a move tantamount to excluding most all Jews. In one amazing defenseLaw school dean Erwin Chemerinsky noted that the law, which he admits is “discriminatory,” has only been passed by “a small group of students” and has not yet been acted upon – as if Berkeley or any other public law school would be. No other establishment will tolerate For example, a group of students announced their intention to exclude a speaker who believes in transgender rights.
