Again, this topic of anti-Semitism on the Left and Right is enormous, and I only want to raise it here as a warning flag for progressives, something we need to examine and deal with in thinking about how discriminated-against groups are treated.

For obvious reasons, anti-Jewish expression on the Left mostly does not make its way into liberal discourse. But if you want a good starting-point for thinking about the issue, I 'd suggest a 2003 article that transcribes a rare forum on the topic: Jamie Glazov 's "Symposium: Anti-Semitism - the New Call of the Left " at FrontPage Magazine (
http://www.frontpagemag.com/articles/readarticle.asp?id=6651 )

Perhaps what is called for is a national forum on religious/ethnic/sexual-preference scapegoating that includes representatives from all discriminated groups. The participants might then become aware of the commonality of their persecution (and often of their persecutors), and develop a coordinated way of defending themselves and going after those who wish them ill.#
