Regarding the essay calling on Princeton to fight antisemitism (On the Campus, January issue): We are forgetting that there is a perfectly decent way to criticize the policies of the IDF and Bibi Netanyahu’s clique without antisemitism and without making Jewish students fearful. The Israeli policies are, in my view, genocidal, and I also think plenty of American and other Jews not living in Israel are fully aware of this, whether they say so or not. I wonder if all the talk about antisemitism is not an effort by the ultra-Zionists to make the issues here seem about hatred when they are really about decency and humane values. How anyone, Christian, Muslim, or Jew, can view what is left of Gaza after the Israeli actions since Oct. 7, 2023, without horror is beyond me!
