Commentary of the Day

nacl, on Eric Trager:

Cohen is where it is at. He is a pretty interesting guy, emblematic of what has been around for a long time, not just in the NYTimes before and during WWII, but in Europe in the darkest places. He speaks for a much larger phenomenon, and is an important guy for that reason. In him we have the prop that gives anti-Semites their anti-Zionist cover. To understand him and explain and expose him would go a long way to robbing the Jew haters of their shield.

There is in Roger Cohen the attempt to find safety for himself, and for all Jews, by distancing himself from Jewish fears and attitudes, by showing himself sharing attitudes, anti-Zionist views and resentments not dissimilar to those of anti-Semites, hence erasing the Jew/nonJew divide.
