Sol Salbe: Antisemitism – a good idea to find the real culprit

Sol Salbe has posted on facebook the following introduction and link to his article on allegations of antisemitism against the Left, in particular against Socialist Alternative. The article includes a discussion of the evidence involved in the allegations of antisemitism against Socialist Alternative at the ANU.

I am reposting this with his permission.

Free speech, Woroni and Tim Wilson

Tim Wilson, one of the Human Rights Commissioners, phoned me today about the ANU student newspaper Woroni and its refusal to publish my rebuttal of their untruths in vilifying Socialist Alternative as anti-Semitic and violent.

Dear Tim, Free Speech Commissioner

This is a slightly edited version of a letter I have emailed to Tim Wilson, the right wing libertarian Free Speech Commissioner at the Human Rights Commission over the refusal by the Australian National University student newspaper Woroni to publish any rebuttal by me of their outrageous article ‘convicting’ Socialist Alternative of anti-Semitism. What odds eh?

The article the ANU student ‘newspaper’ Woroni refused to publish

This is an updated version of an article I sent to to the editors of Woroni, the student newspaper of the Australian National University. They refused to publish an earlier version of what is written below. I have submitted a cut down version of this to the Canberra Times for their consideration.

Woroni: j’accuse – in defence of Socialist Alternative against accusations of anti-Semitism

As more and more people realise the apartheid nature of Israel and while ever the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign grows and contributes to that success, the louder and louder will the cries of anti-Semitism flow from those with an interest in defending the apartheid regime. They cannot rebut the substance of the arguments that show the apartheid nature of Israel so they resort to unsubstantiated assertions, lies and innuendos of the sort found in this cheap piece of gutter journalism. Woroni, j’accuse.
