There's no place like CounterPunch, it's just that simple. And as the radical space within the "alternative media"(whatever that means) landscape continues to shrink, sanctuaries such as CounterPunch become all the more crucial for our political, intellectual, and moral survival. Add to that the fact that CounterPunch won't inundate you with ads and corporate propaganda. So it should be clear why CounterPunch needs your support: so it can keep doing what it's been doing for nearly 25 years. As CP Editor, Jeffrey St. Clair, succinctly explained, "We lure you in, and then punch you in the kidneys." Pleasant and true though that may be, the hard-working CP staff is more than just a few grunts greasing the gears of the status quo.
So come on, be a pal, make a tax deductible donation to CounterPunch today to support our annual fund drive, if you have already donated we thank you! If you haven't, do it because you want to. Do it because you know what CounterPunch is worth. Do it because CounterPunch needs you. Every dollar is tax-deductible. (PayPal accepted)
What constitutes genuine anti-Semitism–Jew hatred–as opposed to disingenuous, specious charges of “anti-Semitism” hurled at realistic, rational appraisals of the state of Israel’s political, military and social conduct?
There’s no more explosive topic in American public life today than the issue of Israel, its treatment of Palestinians and its influence on American politics.
Yet the topic is one that is so hedged with anxiety, fury and fear, that honest discussion is often impossible.
The Politics of Anti-Semitism lifts this embargo.
