One thing that never fails to reaffirm my sense of Jewish identity is the realization that anti-Semitism is very much alive.  Which is what I thought the minute I read this insane post!   

I’m having a hard time understanding how a tiny ad on Craigslist (posted by a wonderful, articulate, generous woman) could attract such responses as

Whores of zion! Organize your racist hate-gathering somewhere else. Like Europe!  

And

Jews like you are killing this world, American jobs, American values and made this war. Educate yourself you dumb fuck 

Especially when all the offending ad said was 

Jewish author seeks Jewish bloggers for fun Chanukah writing project. 

WTF???

But as a result… I hereby suggest that you get yourself over to Amy’s blog and (if you are a Jewish blogger) hook up with her, show some support.  I promise you a fun, creative, and wholly new way of celebrating Chanukah as a result. 

Whores of Zion, I call on you to back this fine woman up! 

I really do find this astounding.  Maybe I live under a rock (a progressive pluralistic rock) but I can't believe there are people out there like this.  I guess we haven't come that far from the days of blood libel and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.  Yeesh!
