Denouncing white supremacy, shrugging at anti-Semites

I Stand With IsraelAlt-right propagandists recently plastered a community college campus in Oregon with anti-Semitic, pro-Nazi literature but an organization that tracks such incidents is more concerned about those on the radical Left.

The posters, distributed by white supremacists on the Portland Community College Cascade campus, appear to attempt to recruit new members.

The posters directed people to a website for a Texas-based white supremacist group that took part in the violent Charlottesville, Virginia rally last August.

However, Tammi Rossman Benajmin of AMCHA says this kind of anti-Semitism seems to draw opponents of such hatred together to resist it.

"It's met with such resistance on campus on all fronts by everyone," she says. "And everybody can come together as a community to oppose that kind of bigotry."

A bigger problem, she says, is the kind of hatred and bigotry that comes from anti-Zionists and anti-Semitics on the far Left, which she believes bring substantive harm to Jewish students.

"We don't find the campus community rallying against that," she complains. "In fact, we see parts of the campus actually exacerbating that and making it even more difficult for Jewish students."
