I have not read this one, yet, and a Tip 'O the Kippa to Oldschool, but I do want to draw attention to Colin Shindler's, Israel and the European Left: Between Solidarity and Delegitimization.
School claims that the book "parallels some of what seems to be the tensions between Jews and the left wing we experience today."
In a review over at Harry's Place, Alan A writes:
Before I go further, I should say that Shindler’s book is superb: a well-written and meticulously researched history of the horrors and ironies of the last 100 years. He shows how screaming stereotypes and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories developed by Marxists — not by fascists or Islamists or Catholic and Orthodox nationalists, but by the Left — have survived while all around has changed.
Given the cramped nature of British debate, I doubt if it will be widely reviewed. The right-wing press won’t like it because it is not a conventional denunciation of the Left. Shindler is a properly impartial historian, but when his beliefs show through he reveals himself to be a social democrat rather than an Israel-firster or man of the Right. The left-wing press won’t like it for the same reason Caliban did not like the sight of his face in the mirror.
A major part of what we do here on Israel Thrives is analyze and discuss the rise of anti-Semitic anti-Zionism on the progressive-left. Because progressives, as well as "progressive Zionists," generally refuse to address the issue, we will do it for them.
Many thanks to School for the notice on this one.
