To Whom It May Concern:
We are a group of Jews who live in Germany (Germans, Israelis and from other backgrounds) and are part of the organisation “European Jews for a Just Peace” .
We urge you to consider the accusations of antisemitism against Ed Corrigan without bias and in full consideration of the facts. His views on Israeli politics are well researched, well founded, fair, and never prejudiced.
To accuse him of antisemitism is therefore unfounded and slanderous.
To confuse criticism of Israel with antisemitism is actually dangerous: It serves to blur the recognition of true antisemitism where it occurs, and of racism in general. And it can in fact generate antisemitism as a response to the unquestioning support received by Israel in face of the grave injustices it commits.
