The Holocaust is over

The recently released book, A Time to Speak Out, in which I have a chapter about the role of Jewish dissent, is an important contribution to the ever-growing literature about Israel’s human rights abuses from a Jewish perspective.

One of the co-editors of the collection writes in the Guardian about the disturbing use by so-called culture-warriors of tactics designed to smear critics of Western policy in the Middle East:

Since the Jewish genocide is used so shamelessly in legitimation of Israeli policy towards the Palestinians, it’s hardly surprising if many Arabs and Muslims respond either with Holocaust denial or by trying to appropriate the Holocaust themselves. In a mirror-image of Arabs-are-Nazis, Zionism-is-Nazism: they accuse Israel of acting like Nazis even while they represent Jews in the crude and offensive stereotypes used by Nazi propaganda.
