The Unbearable Ignorance of the ADL

In today's newsletter, contributing editor Noah Kulwin examines the ADL’s response to recent high-profile incidents of antisemitism, painting a portrait of an organization less interested in understanding and addressing anti-Jewish bigotry than in pro-Israel advocacy and shoring up its own future.

The organization uses its moral authority to shield Israel from criticism while spreading misleading information about contemporary antisemitism.

The Meaning of Apartheid

NEW podcast episode: Jewish Currents senior reporter Alex Kane hosts a conversation with international law scholars Noura Erakat and John Reynolds and Human Rights Watch's Omar Shakir on what exactly we mean when we say "Israeli apartheid," and the differences in how Palestinian intellectuals and Western human rights groups deploy the term.

Alex Kane hosts a discussion between Noura Erakat, John Reynolds, and Omar Shakir on the way Western human rights groups use the term “apartheid”—and the different definition at the heart of a long Palestinian intellectual tradition.

Itamar Ben-Gvir’s Militia

The response to a soldier's assault on leftist Israelis in occupied Hebron showcased a dramatic ideological and socioeconomic cleavage in Israeli society: the "high-tech" army vs. the ground troops who embrace Itamar Ben-Gvir.

An IDF assault on left-wing activists in Hebron reveals an emboldened security force—and signals a step toward annexation.

The probe is the first by a US agency into the death of the Palestinian American journalist.

Under the Hood

A Philip Guston retrospective opened this year after being postponed due to concerns about his illustrations of Ku Klux Klan figures. But contributing writer Zoé Samudzi writes that in its attempt to avoid scrutiny, the show neglects Guston's potent consideration of whiteness.

A sanitized Philip Guston retrospective tries so hard not to offend that it skirts around the most interesting aspect of Guston’s work: his meditations on the American Jewish relationship to anti-Black violence.

Mitch Abidor reviews The Other Israel Film Festival, which opens in Manhattan today

"These documentaries, like most of the movies set to be screened at the Other Israel Film Festival, are scathing in their indictment of the Jewish state. But many if not most of the featured films were also directly supported by the Israeli government, through funding from the Ministry of Culture and Sport. For this reason, they fall afoul of cultural boycott guidelines developed by the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement"

The Other Israel Film Festival highlights state violence past and present, but can films funded by the government ever truly hold it to account?

“They’re Destroying Our Support Networks”

Washington State prison officials continue to use Covid-19 as an excuse to cancel family visits and enrichment programming while never letting the virus get in the way of sending prisoners to work. Chris Blackwell’s dispatch for this week’s newsletter shows how prisoners’ personal relationships are buckling under the strain of these contradictory policies, which jeopardize their emotional wellbeing while failing to protect their physical health.

Under the guise of Covid protections, prisoners are denied family visits, yet forced to work through outbreaks.

ADL: A pro-Israel lobby with a civil rights hobby.

Incredibly important piece by Noah Kulwin for Jewish Currents:
https://jewishcurrents.org/the-unbearable-ignorance-of-the-adl

Noah Kulwin at Jewish Currents reports what activists have been sounding the alarm on for years: the ADL is not a friend to any progressive movement, including the fight against antisemitism. And all of this directly harms the movement for Palestinian liberation.

In fact, the main priority of the ADL isn’t anyone’s safety. It’s defending apartheid Israel at any cost.

Kulwin’s report demonstrates that the ADL is more than willing to use fear-mongering language, promote false data on antisemitism that relies on its conflation with anti-Zionism, and defend antisemites—so long as Israel remains in good standing.

We know that safety comes through solidarity—not violence, not fear-mongering, and certainly not by espousing narrow politically motivated ideas about Jewish safety and antisemitism at the expense of Palestinian lives.

As right-wing fascists organize more in the US and abroad, progressive movements need to take stock of which organizations are prioritizing the safety of everyone threatened by white supremacy — and the ADL is not one of them.
Terrific piece by Noah Kulwin in Jewish Currents exposing the ADL - Anti-Defamation League for the scam it is.
They are not fighting they are fomenting it. At this crucial moment people must understand that this is not the place to turn to fight anti-Jewish hate.

If you haven't yet had the chance, read NIF's Media and Policy Director, Elisheva Goldberg in Jewish Currents this week as she unpacks what we can expect from a future Minister for National Security, Itamar Ben Gvir in Netanyahu's new government (link in comments) 👇👇
The Hamsa Flag was first imagined by Ayin Press cofounder Tom Haviv.

The following are quotes from Haviv’s book A Flag of No Nation (Jewish Currents, 2019). Some also appeared in the Hamsa Flag essay published by Protocols in 2016:

"I first imagined the Hamsa Flag in 2009 while reading an essay in the New York Times about a proposed one-state solution in Israel|Palestine. Up until then, I had only known of the two-state solution, and had abided by the idea that it was integral to the 'peace process.' As soon as I finished the article, I remember having an immediate, almost visceral response: For such a utopia to exist, the flags of both sides would have to be abandoned, and a new flag introduced."
**
"I was struck by what I saw as a design flaw intrinsic to the conflict. The design of the flags themselves, distinctly representing both peoples’ states and claims, was blocking our political imagination and forming yet another obstacle in the path toward civil rights, justice, and peace."
**
"At its root, it was a simple thought. I felt that most Israelis would never agree to live under the Pan-Arab colors of the Palestinian flag and most Palestinians would never agree to live under the blue and white—the Magen David—of the Israeli flag."
**
"As soon as the thought came, the symbol followed: the hamsa. It was instinctive, intuitive, and absolutely clear: This was the natural symbol of the merging of two peoples. The open palm."
**
"Why this symbol? Jews, Muslims, and Christians, Arabs, Turks, and Kurds, and people in the Balkans and across North Africa have all been wearing the hamsa in some form as a spiritual emblem for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. It was a symbol that naturally bypassed otherwise sharp, or deadly, borders of history, culture, and identity; in its simplicity, in its familiarity and otherworldliness, it seemed to have the power to unify, to create surprising kinships."
**
"Why a Flag? I felt a flag was necessary because a movement would be necessary, because there need to be flags of peace and resistance, flags of the imagination, flags that can say things we cannot yet articulate in words. The flag was not designed as a reaction, or to be entangled in the dialectic of Jew and non-Jew. It was designed with the hope of challenging and ultimately dismantling the violent binaries that underlie the crisis in Israel|Palestine—and to set the stage for something new. The world to come."

Tom Haviv’s book A Flag of No Nation (Jewish Currents, 2019) grew out of, and in conjunction with, the Hamsa Flag Project.

Both book and flag serve as an invitation to reconsider the past, reckon with the mythologies of nationalism, and imagine new futures of solidarity and possibility.

Ayin Press is now offering the Hamsa Flag & A Flag of No Nation together. Purchase both items as a bundle for a discounted price at the Ayin shop!

Ayin Press is delighted to announce that, in partnership with Jewish Currents, we’re taking on distribution of Tom Haviv’s book A Flag of No Nation (Jewish Currents, 2019).

A meditation on world invention and collapse, A Flag of No Nation traces the stories of Turkish Jews in the twentieth century, blind colonists in a white ocean, and performers enacting new rituals around a nationless flag. Through forms of storytelling that range from allegory to oral history, Tom Haviv investigates the history of Israel|Palestine and the mythologies of nationalism. A warning against imperfect dreams, and an invitation to imagine something new, A Flag of No Nation reminds us how the act of remembrance can help us re-envision the future.

A Flag of No Nation is now available at the Ayin shop!
