Just vile. The event was co-sponsored by the rabidly anti-Semitic and anti-Israel hate group Jewish Voice for Peace. Naturally the panel featured some of the worst anti-Semites in the United States, who insist that promoting the eradication of the world’s only Jewish state is not anti-Semitic.

‘We Don’t Hate Jews,’ Claim Activists Who Want to Eliminate Jewish State During Orwellian Panel
By United With Israel, December 16, 2020
On Tuesday, a notorious anti-Israel group hosted an “anti-Semitism panel” that featured speakers who demonize the Jewish state and have repeatedly been accused of anti-Semitism.
“Tell everybody, I don’t hate you. I absolutely love you,” said Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat of Palestinian descent who has pushed the anti-Semitic dual loyalty canard on a number of occasions. Most recently, Tlaib posted a non sequitur referencing Israel after President-elect Joe Biden appointed a Jew, Antony Blinken, to serve as secretary of state.
“So long as [Blinken] doesn’t suppress my First Amendment right to speak out against [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s racist and inhumane policies,” Tlaib tweeted.
A week and a half earlier, she retweeted a post that read “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” a popular slogan calling for the elimination of the Jewish state.
The majority of the panel Tlaib joined on Tuesday was not Jewish and included individuals who have used their platforms to slander Israel.
One of them was Marc Lamont Hill, who proudly parroted the “river-to-the-sea” slogan at a 2018 United Nations event in a speech that gained praise from notorious KKK hatemonger David Duke. Hill supports anti-Israel boycotts and has spread modern-day blood libels that Israel “poisons” Palestinian water and “kills” Arab children.
Bari Weiss, who recently resigned from the New York Times over anti-Semitism at the paper, tweeted, “So ‘dismantling anti-Semitism’ is actually about dismantling accusations of anti-Semitism.”
The so-called “anti-Semitism” panel also featured Peter Beinart, who recently called for the end of Israel as a Jewish state.
