The left must confront its anti-Semitism, say
PHILIP BERGER, JEFF ROSE and CLAYTON RUBY

For decades, the three of us have been active in progressive causes in Canada. Now, an increasingly vocal part of the Canadian left has, over the issue of Israel and Palestine, made our position untenable. We are being asked to choose between our support for Israel and our credentials as leftists.

I found this while browsing a US site, but it is from "Canada's National Newspaper" and the authors apparently are themselves progressives, not right-wing troublemakers.

Seems there is at least some room for debate here (which BTW, applies equally to the US).

Oh. Sorry, didn't see it. I guess this can be deleted then.
