Default Anti-Semitism

I've created this thread because I couldn't find a good place for this:

Alice Walker's Conspiracy Theories Aren't Just Anti-Semitic — They're Anti-Black | The Forward

... and I'm guessing that anti-Semitism, given the weaponised accusations of it by the Israel lobbies, is a hot enough a topic for an ongoing all-purpose thread.

From the linkUltimately defeating anti-Jewish and anti-Black prejudice in our communities depends on principled solidarity and rejection of the tropes created by white supremacy.

It means calling out Walker’s remarks and anti-Blackness in Jewish communities, but also examining and debunking the source of these ideas so they don’t persist.

Thread on antisemitism in Britain. I don't really understand what's going on but apparently eight MPs have left Labour over antisemitism in the party and three have left the Tories because I don't even know. I know the catastrofuck of Brexit is still looming as well. I watched John Oliver's brilliant segment on that and feel much better informed on that, but I still have no idea what's going on with the party departures.

Anyway, the real reason I'm posting this isn't so much the original thread but the replies. I know most of the times you don't want to read the comments, but in this case, you do. This is as remarkable an exception as that episode of House where it actually was lupus.

Does leaving the party actually deprive the party of power, or just concentrate more power among those left?

Something that I have noticed, lately, is that criticism of the government of the State of Israel is often flagged as being anti-Semitic.

Not sure if that applies in the recent cases, but it has been evident in the States lately.

Fortunately we have an entire thread on that can of worms and need not pre-emptively jump the topic on this one.
