JVP and the "Progressive" Attack on Reason

As all sane Jews who have encountered Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) activists know, any attempt to understand their reasoning is futile. Try Lincoln Shlensky's July 28 blog entry on for size. Her ranting arguments are so convoluted and so absolutely confused, that ultimately her logorreah will only make sense to the post-60s hippies and "progressive" Hamasniks who are at the core of her pathetic and angry group of anti-Israel ideologues.

What Shlensky and her misguided comrades fail to comprehend is that it is not the fact of the "Rachel" screening that offends us the most; it is the participation of JVP, its presence on the SFJFF Board, its co-presenting with the American Friends Services Committee, and its tacit support with Federation funds. JVP is a disgrace to our community and a blight on our people, and we will not rest until it is utterly purged from our cultural institutions.

  1. I like to think of myself as a sane Jew but perhaps I am mistaken since Shlensky's reasoning in this instance seems relatively reasonable, albeit coming from a "pro-peace" position. Her arguments don't seem to be pariculary convoluted or ranting so I am a little bit mystified by your severe criticism. Perhaps you could be a bit more specific as to what you find to be untrue or objectionable.
