Reply To: Have you been exposed to harmful antisemitic tropes about Jewish control over finances or foreign policy? After participating in this course, how would you go about responding to these tropes if you encounter them?


Yes, for majority of my life I have also been exposed to antisemitic tropes about Jewish control over finances and foreign policy. I can see that this possibly stems from the fact that there is a large population of Jewish leaders that are in positions of power in the White House, and many of them are naturally pro-Israel. It is sad, however, that America is so polarized that Americans are allowing radicals on both sides of the political spectrum to inform them through conspiracy theories about the intentions of these powerful Jews and the influence that they have on American politics. A lot of these theories are unfortunately antisemitic and they are hurting our country and our role in the diplomatic process more than anything.
