Over the past few months we have seen an an increase of pushback against the IHRA definition of antisemitism which growing especially in progressive circles. For example, pro BDS groups like ‘IfNotNow’ are now claiming that it’s hurting the progressive movement. The fact of the matter is that for IfNotNow and its allies, the IHRA definition’s acknowledgment of the connection between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism likely hits too close to home, hence their crusade to smear it by any means necessary.

As always we welcome your suggestions and submissions
