Antisemitism Explained

The following video was created as part of an education program developed at UC Berkeley aimed at stamping out antisemitism on campus. Its goal is “to educate students and other members of the school community about the roots of antisemitism and modern examples of anti-Jewish bias.”

I would say it does a good job.

There are certain things I would have done differently – including explain a bit more about the culpability of the Arabs in creating the palestinian refugees, not avoiding Muslim antisemitism, and usage of the word “Zionist” as a euphemism for Jew – but overall, I think the video can be effective in its stated goals.

This should be required viewing not just for students and the school community but the wider community, including members of Congress.

Update: Reader Tomer has a harsher appraisal.

I think these are fair points, which do detract from the video. But I still believe it can be effective at helping fight antisemitism on campus and beyond.
