Among progressives any reference to Arab anti-Semitism, even of the most genocidal kind, is itself considered a form of "Islamophobia." Progressives seem to have no problem whatsoever with Arabs or Muslims who call for the slaughter of Jews, but any Jew who points out that these calls for Jewish genocide are calls for Jewish genocide is, in the upside-down world of leftist politics, considered racist. This being the case, one can only imagine the progressive-left wrath for someone who not only calls out Arab anti-Semitism, but the anti-Semitism of some Arab women.
Inside Higher Ed has published a story about how Arab women writers have killed a University of Texas anthology on women in the Middle East because the university actually dared to include Israeli women writers in the now not forthcoming book:
The anthology was to have been published in conjunction with the University of Texas Press, and 29 authors agreed to have works included. Then one of the women found out that two of the authors were Israelis. She then notified the others that she would withdraw her piece unless Texas excluded the two Israelis. When the university refused to do so, a total of 13 authors pulled out...
Kamran Scot Aghaie, director of the center at UT, said that it "would not have been academically sound" to do the book without any Arab authors, but that it wouldn't have been academically or ethically sound to exclude the Israelis. Since the Arab authors wouldn't participate, the book was scrapped.
Is it wrong to point out Arab female anti-Semitism when it occurs?
I bet it is!
On the progressive-left the only good Jew is a dhimmi Jew.
