On Antisemitism Among The Syrian Demonstrators & Elsewhere In The Arab World

The cerebral and always interesting British blogger Edgar Davidson, who has previously drawn attention to antisemitism in the so-called Arab Spring,  has an important post regarding antisemitism among the Syrian demonstrators.

This is a post which deserves attention. Access it  here
As well, there's a current article on the website of the Australia/Israel & Jewish Public Affairs Council (AIJAC) website that begins:

The article (hat tip: Shirlee) goes on to describe the bloggers'  analyses.  Access it here
