TCJewfolk Article about the Protest at UMN Law School

So proud of my friend for writing this.  We may not always agree on political stances, but I agree with this:

A big part of me wants to just ignore this protest, because in a sense, just by discussing it, these people win. But it must be said unequivocally: these people are the new form of anti-Semites: otherwise decent people masquerading as crusaders for justice.

University of Minnesota – Israeli Lecturer Protest

I am embarrassed by the behavior of some of the students of my alma mater. Moshe Halbertal was not even speaking about Israeli politics, but discussing civilians and asymmetric warfare. It is imperative that all peoples are not ignorant, but are aware of the facts. It seems to me that the SJP was not interested in the actual topic of conversation, but merely the fact that this man has connections to Israel. This is one of those scenarios where I worry that anti-Zionism crosses into anti-Semitism in a very real sense.
