If you are curious about what a Neo-Jew might be, you won't find out here. But I suspect that the this meaningless neo-logism, which somehow seems so successful, will eventually have a meaning attached to it, and a philosophy spun around it.
"What's a Neo-Jew?" asks a bemused David T, over on Harry's Place. I have to admit that I don't have a clear answer, but - given that it appears in Jennifer Loewenstein's stream of hate on Counterpunch - I think we can all conclude that it's not meant as a compliment.
David makes an observation that bears repeating: irrespective of its leftist branding, Counterpunch is a far-right journal. Antisemites like Gilad Atzmon, Michael Neumann and Jeffrey St. Clair regularly publish there. Their take on Zionism and Israel is less of the old-fashioned, Jewish Marxist "Zionism is a diversion from the class struggle" line, and more in tune with the "Zionism controls the banks, the media and the US government" theme espoused by Ahmadinejad and David Duke.
