David Spero will discuss anti-Semitism and Zionism and some history of their development. How Zionism was both a reaction to historic European anti-Semitism, and a conscious alliance with British imperialism and later with the U.S. empire. Why some older Jews react negatively to criticism of Israel, and why that attitude is changing rapidly among younger Jews

He will discuss the different strands of Zionism, and the one that won out. He will explain why defending the Israeli state is not opposing anti-Semitism; it is supporting it. And he will explain why you are not helping your Jewish friends by remaining silent on Palestine.
