I was there, and what provoked the protest wasn't the fact that the discussion was about anti-Semitism, but that the speaker was Ruth Wisse, a notorious anti-Arab racist and unconditional defender of Israel and its occupation.

I would say at least a plurality of the protestors were young Jewish students.

A great number of speakers were Jews who are deeply aware of anti-Semitism - Etienne Balibar, Marc Weitzmann and others. None were protested because they were Jewish, or speaking about anti-Semitism.

The notion that this woman from the Forward was protested because she's Jewish is preposterous.

It's also remarkable how right-wingers and defenders of Israel who complain about the 'victimology' of Arabs and black people slide so easily into claims of victimhood themselves.

It bears noting that Ruth Wisse began her tirade by citing a 1992 article by Henry Louis Gates about black anti-Semitism. It was very revealing of her obsessions and preoccupations.

One good thing about this fiasco is that more people (like myself) are now aware of Ruth Wisse. What an original, thought provoking, thinker. We should all fight back against and
