    In an interview with David Frost aired on December 21, Julian Assange made quite clear he’s not an anarchist.

    You seem to be asserting that antisemitism is more prevalent on the “left” than the “right”, yet you provide no evidence for this. Furthermore, you provide no logical connection between the two points of view. For example, what does Canadian-style healthcare have anything to do with antisemitism? What does Social Security have to do with antisemitism? What do tax brackets have to do with antisemitism? Has there never been any right-wing antisemitism?

    elamdan – Nowadays “left” “liberal” and even “Democrat” seem to be used as the same big lump of whatever someone more from the right is against. There are many Democrats who for example do not share the “liberal” views that cause one to pity and advocate for violent minorities, and as you point out racist attitudes have reasons to appear throughout the political spectrum.

  4. Joe Hill says:

    Not only is antisemitism more prevalent on the left than on the right, modern antisemitism is almost an exclusive left wing phenomenon, where it is tolerated.

    eLamdan, I think you’re conflating the terms “left” and “far left”. “Left” typically means a desire to expand government to provide more social services. Far left typically means treating the US as equivalent to third world dictatorship.

    Ori, it could be I am. I instinctively grouped this article with others from the same author where he seems to take on the entire “left” in this same manner. My impression is that the author considers Obama “far” left also, so I’m not sure he makes the same distinction you are making. For example, what would the author say about Rabbi Shafran’s recent article on Obama?

    I often comment at the left wing site

    At 9am on December 1, 2010, an article appeared on that site entitled, “IS WIKILEAKS A FRONT FOR THE CIA OR MOSSAD? A JOURNALIST ASKS & IMMEDIATELY DISMISSES FAIR QUESTION”. (Caps are in the original.) The content was about what you would expect.

    At 10am on December 1, 2010, the author was permanently banned from ever posting articles or comments on

    Back in October, had banned the the principal behind the site from posting or commenting. I now have more time to learn torah now that I’m not constantly battling his slanders there.

    I know this is problematic for the Narrative, which is Left Wingers are Anti-Semites and Right Wingers are All Good, but those are facts.

    Personally, I think Assange is a menace to the entire free world.

    “Israel Shamir” is a hoax. He is in reality Jöran Jermas, just your run-of-the-mill (Swedish) anti-Semite. That WikiLeaks chose to ignore his background is indeed troubling.
