It might seem like a good thing that a Zionist head of major theological consortium has been pushed out, especially since the decision by the Graduate Theological Union appears to have been inspired by If Americans Knew founder Alison Weir.
Unfortunately, the decision is influenced by social justice. I’ve been aware for a long time that the Palestine solidarity movement is dominated by social justice warriors. This put me in a dilemma. I support the former, but oppose the latter. But this case –
The letter urged GTU to take four actions on the issue. These included issuing apologies to the Muslim community.
– reminds me of Antifa attempting to make a Palestine solidarity activist apologise to Jews. As long as the Palestine solidarity movement is run by people who go on about ‘people of color’ and ‘systemic harm’ and demand apologies from people for their opinions, it’s part of the cancer of social justice, which is a threat to everything that is good about Western civilization. It’s more of a threat than Zionists, who use social justice arguments when it suits them, but they are only part of the problem. Social justice IS the problem.
