    "We must once and for all admit that there is another side, that it has feelings and that it is suffering, and that we are behaving disgracefully," said Avraham Shalom, who headed the security service from 1980 until 1986. "Yes, there is no other word for it: disgracefully. . . . We have turned into a people of petty fighters using the wrong tools."

    The statements to Israel's largest-circulation Hebrew-language daily newspaper, Yedioth Aharonoth, added to recent public criticism of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon (news - web sites) by Israeli political, military and civic leaders for his failure to stop terrorism or negotiate peace as the uprising enters its fourth year."

    The GOP should be all for Jews, since Joe Shapiro stepped up and took the SAT for its Baby Jesus. So if Dems are OK with Jews too, then I'd say anti-Semitism has been solved.

    Interesting follow up:
    It would appear not...

    In a joint statement from several organizations, Jackson’s social media posts were condemned, but he as a person was not condemned. Instead, the organizations said they would help Jackson if he’s sincere about turning this into a learning opportunity.

    “ADL, AJC, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey, the Philadelphia Holocaust Remembrance Foundation and the Pennsylvania Jewish Coalition strongly condemned Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson’s antisemitic social media posts promoting notorious antisemite, Louis Farrakhan, and a quote falsely attributed to Adolf Hitler,” the statement said. “Although Mr. Jackson later posted that he ‘has no hate in his heart,’ his amplification of hate-filled messages sent a very different message. We commend the Eagles organization for speaking out forcefully against the posts and urging Mr. Jackson to apologize. We appreciate Mr. Jackson’s apology and his removal of the offensive posts, and we hope that he will take this opportunity to work with the Jewish community and become educated about how dangerous and pernicious antisemitism and all forms of hate are.

    “All of the undersigned organizations work in coalitions in our community, foster interfaith and Black-Jewish dialogues, and support all efforts to ensure Philadelphia is safe and welcoming for all. We are willing to work with the Eagles and Mr. Jackson on education and outreach.

    “The Eagles have been a unifying force in our City. We hope they will remain so."​


    But the people writing that are probably older. They might not know how things are supposed to be done om social media.

    Ex-NBA player Stephen Jackson is defending DeSean for “speaking the truth.”
