In Egypt, Anti-Semitism Is Back in Fashion

In a piece for Bloomberg, Jeffery Goldberg warns that culturally acceptable anti-Semitism illustrates how far Egypt still has to come, 

Anti-Semitism, the socialism of fools, is becoming the opiate of the Egyptian masses. And not just the masses. Egypt has never been notably philo-Semitic (just ask Moses), but today it’s entirely acceptable among the educated and creative classes there to demonize Jews and voice the most despicable anti- Semitic conspiracy theories. Careerists know that even fleeting associations with Jews and Israelis could spell professional trouble.

Bibi - Son of Benzion

Israel’s prime minister had an admirable role model in his academic Zionist father, writes Meir Y. Soloveichik in the Weekly Standard.

Benzion Netanyahu was a remarkable man. Long before Benjamin became prime minister, the Netanyahus were one of Israel’s famous families, as a result of the heroic death of Benzion’s eldest child, Yonatan, leading the otherwise triumphant Entebbe raid of 1976. But Benzion Netanyahu was already a major Zionist figure in his own right.
