    Democrats for Israel California stands in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community and against hate and racial violence that claimed eight lives last night. The Jewish and AAPI communities share a long history of being targeted and attacked by right-wing hate groups. While the targeting of APPI individuals has been going on for some time, but under the Trump Administration, anti-AAPI rhetoric from the very top filtered down with the inevitable result -- a tragic and sharp uptick of violence against members of the AAPI community.

    After the Tree of Life Synagogue attack, more than 100 AAPI organizations spoke out and came to support of the Jewish community. Today, we too state that an attack on any one group is an attack on all Americans, whether it was the shootings at synagogues in Poway and Pittsburgh, escalating violence against Asian Americans punctuated by yesterday's shooting in Atlanta, the Muslim travel ban and attacks in Christchurch, the attacks on Sikhs in Stanislaus and Sacramento, the long history of anti-Black violence in this country or the far-Right march in Charlottesville and insurrection in Washington that targeted us all. These acts have no place in America. Elected officials and law enforcement must move quickly to address and provide concrete results to combat racism, discrimination and violence against our Asian Americans and Pacific Islander brothers and sisters. It's on all us us to #StopAAPIHate.

    - Andrew Lachman - Since the International Holocaust Remembrance Association’s (IHRA) “Working Definition of Antisemitism” was adopted by President Obama’s State Department in 2010 and then by parties and leaders on the right and left, by over 31 countries and by educational institutions from California to London, there’s been a great deal of debate over it.

    The definition itself has elicited few objections:

    Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.

    But the accompanying “Contemporary examples of antisemitism,” which focus on speech about Israel and the right of Jews to self-determination, have elicited pushback from some pro-Palestinian and progressive Jewish groups who are concerned that the examples can be abused or politicized to stifle discussion about Israeli policy. Jewish identity is strongly intertwined with Israel’s existence, but that said, while any guideline can be abused, the guidelines might actually help set a useful precedent to limit the abuses critics are concerned about.....  MORE
