Mondo Goes Solo

Mondoweiss has discovered, after a lot of "soul-searching", that anti-Zionists and pro-Palestinians are, well, anti-Semitic and they really do hate Jews and that:-

inside the movement for Palestinian human rights...a significant part of the community wants to talk about Israeli policy in the context of Jewish history and Jewish identity, and do so in a highly critical manner.

And to be more specific, there is:-

a toxic, often racist, discourse, and scares off others who would otherwise be drawn to the issues this site concerns itself with. Obviously some of our own posts have broached issues of Jewish identity; and we will continue to publish critiques of Jewish identity construction and analyses of the Jewish political establishment—what Tony Judt called the most powerful Jewish community since the Roman Empire. But we’re going to sharply circumscribe commenters’ freedom to address these issues as a special or unique Jewish problem, or to post arguments that any form of collective Jewish community-building is negative
