One thought on “"A cloud hangs over our neighborhood": Jewish residents of the Upper West Side respond to Israel-related censorship

  1. Maybe your Jewish residents of the Upper West Side didn’t read the book or don’t rally care what’s in it:
    “I is for Intifada, Arabic for rising up for what is right, if you are a kid or grownup!” plus a photo of Palestinian rioters throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails. “Intifada,” as the Times of Israel points out, connotes two separate bouts of prolonged Palestinian violence and terror from 1987-1991 and 2000-2005, during which some 1,300 Israelis and 6,000 Palestinians were killed.
    Where exactly do you draw the line? What if it was Mein Kampf being sold there or the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion or some anti-black racist pamphlet. A bookstore can sell whatever it likes within the law but a Jew also has a right to protest manifestations of Israel hatred, which usually turn out to be a little more than objective criticism.
