Ok, that's fine, since I don't think that all criticism of Israel is
anti-semitic. The Israeli state is doing horrible things right now. In
a time of heightened tension, though, it makes sense to ensure that we
as Indymedia admins don't let *actual* anti-semitism slip through on the
newswire due to the fact that we are generally opposed to the Israeli
aggression in Palestine and Lebanon - so I think we need to be tighter
about this sort of stuff, not looser, right now.
Let me ask you again, more politely if you like - every anti-racist
worth his or her salt recognizes the "zionist-controlled world media" as
a standard gambit of far-right groupings. Either you agree with this or
you don't. I have no power to expel you from this list unilaterally,
but I think nobody on the list is going to want to collaborate with
someone saying this kind of crap. So either distance yourself from it
or please leave the list.
