Combating Delegitimization Requires a Big Tent

By John Ruskay

eJewish Philanthropy, February 18, 2011

The author argues that the Jewish community ought to differentiate between criticism of Israel and delegitimization which seeks to deny Israel the right to exist. Jews across the political spectrum should unite to stand against delegitimization, he contends, but they should also refrain from lumping legitimate criticism in with delegitimization, even when disagreeing with that criticism.
