charge of antisemitism no longer coherent…//DeSean Jackson posts anti-Semitic message on Instagram – Insider

These remarks are a complete misfire and can’t be defended, but at the same time the definition of ‘antisemitism’ is no longer a coherent one. And the confusion over the BDS shows it. The charge of antisemitism is now used to defend the oppression of the Palestinians. And the influence of the Jewish lobby on American politics, indeed the subtle attacks on the British Labour movement, are so ugly it is not surprising that protest will speak, only to be called antisemitic.
The Jewish/Israeli communities are their own worst enemies and the charge of antisemitism is now dysfunctional..

The Eagles released a statement calling DeSean Jackson’s posts “offensive, harmful, and absolutely appalling,” while Jackson apologized.
