The Greatest Libel Since the Blood Libel

As the author of a book on the history of anti-Semitism (“Why the Jews? The Reason for Antisemitism”), having taught Jewish history at the college level, and as a committed Jew who has devoted great efforts to combating anti-Semitism, I do not easily compare anything to the Blood Libel.

But perhaps the second greatest libel — and certainly the most widespread — is that America is a racist country that oppresses its minorities — and women. We can call it the American Libel.
