“Why Trump’s New Executive Order Matters

“Trump’s executive order is reported to do two things: first, reclassify criticism of Israel and Zionism as anti-Semitism, and two, categorize Jews as a non-white race. This will effectively turn expressing negative sentiments towards Israel on college campuses into a hate crime.”

The only good thing you can say about such a measure is that it reveals the weakness of the cause it is supposed to defend.

This shows no respect for the rights of others and the rule of law, just as is the case with other Israeli-inspired measures against free speech and peaceful boycott.

Of course, that is in keeping with Israel’s daily treatment of millions of Palestinians.

A strong and vital and fair society wants no such props.

An unfair one applauds them.

And, my God, defining “a race”? Who were the last folks to do that?
