I note how Palestinians don't play much of a role in her piece. The entire
thing is about the relationship (or lack of one) between Jews and Israel.
The real question isn't whether anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism, the issue is
why such obvious chauvinism has been adopted by Western governments. That
aspect is lacking. Still, given the low bar at the NYT, it's better than
nothing.

what a courageous piece of writing by Michelle Goldberg --- it is easier to
oppose Israeli government policy in Israel than in the US!
