Uhh... maybe I missed something, but why does your reading 
kersblebeded's books make it unsurprising that he "got it right"? For 
my part, I'll be content with Fred Feldman's report back. I've found 
him to be a reliable source. And in my opinion, honest activists 
shouldn't be organizing symposia on anti-semitism in the movement at 
this moment, but on building the movement against the U.S./Israeli 
aggression and Israeli apartheid. The aggression has cost the lives 
of well over a thousand Palestinian and Lebanese civilians to date, 
as well as destroying much if not most of the Lebanese and Gaza 
infrastructures. And, yes, it's cost some Israeli civilian lives as 
well. In the context of such a symposium, there could certainly have 
been a workshop or panel speaker on anti-semitism. But, I think, at a 
minimum,  the organizers of the Bluestocking event have their 
priorities screwed up.

By the way, Lou P., there would be another short-term activity or 
series of activities that could be entertained: a movement-wide 
educational conference or teach-in on the crisis and the U.S./Israeli 
role in the Middle East. If the major anti-war coalitions could do 
this together, it would be magnificent!
