YES the Shoah, BUT the Nakba

More essential analysis from Norm:
Seumas Milne is a very good guide to things. I mean, he's a good guide to how a certain section of the left - not to put too fine a point on it, the regrettable section - thinks. His column yesterday provides an example of what I mean. It gives us the pure form of a contemporary leftist trope. It is worth examination for that reason - for representing a set of rhetorical moves that has become rather general amongst anti-Zionists. [Read the rest.]
(To add to trad left, rococo left, leftover left, indecent left, idiot left, etc: the regrettable left.)
