Antisemitism is an inconvenient truth for the left, doesn't fit into their worldview or victim profile- causes cognitive dissonance for them...uncomfortable, so they ignore it or discount it as some right wing conspiracy...any charge of anti-semitism is suspect now, as evidence of right wing allegiance. trouble is, the right are the only ones monitoring antisemitism.

Despite the grammar, our anonymous friend is correct.
It is only the right monitoring anti-Semitism, because the left has convinced itself that the Jewish state is no longer worthy of their support.
The problem is not that the left is anti-Semitic. It isn't. The problem is that the left has no clue whatsoever to do about the conflict, within their own ranks, between Jewish people and anti-Semitic anti-Zionists.
That's the problem.
