Recovering Evangelicalism – Seeking a Justice-based peace in the Middle East –

The ‘Campaign Against Antisemitism’ sounds like an organisation any right thinking person should want to support, and in principle, I do. But I try to be cautious about what I’m joining, doing the research to see if things ‘add up’.   I’ve recently spent a lot of time checking out the website of ‘Campaign Against Antisemitism’ and you can see what I found on the Articles page of this website. You can download as a.pdf file here.

I point out the ‘Campaign Against Antisemitism’ is dangerous because, inadvertantly, it undermines its cause. You cannot prevent the singling out of a people-group for negative attention; Jews, by singling out that same people-group for special attention. Arguing, correctly, that Jews should be treated no differently to any other group it nevertheless treats Jews separately from other groups experiencing racism.

I call attention to the fact that the evidence they present is thin, and that its methodology is poorly applied.  What it looks like is not an attack on racist antisemitism, but an attack on ‘Labour under Corbyn’, in other words it is political to its core.  Rather than being a campaign against antisemitism I suggest that this organisation may be both racist and antisemitic.
