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?

Hello Amanda,

I totally agree with your point that it is totally inconsistent with the idea that “Jews run America” when policy makers, such as former President Barack Obama, behave in ways totally contra to the interests of Israel. I was so fascinated to hear from Walter Russel Mead all of the different times since 1948 that the United States was not interested in helping Israel and how, during all of these crises, the apparently all-powerful Jewish lobby was totally impotent.
