Mos Def's comments are inane.

Reader comment on item: The New Anti-Semitism [Worldwide]
in response to reader comment: Famous Rapper/Actor MOS DEF Uses Jews as an Example about JENA 6 Case

Mos Def's comment about Jewish students strikes me as self-evidently absurd: of course Jewish students who assaulted somebody who left a threatening symbol would get into trouble. Why the heck does he think otherwise? Is he daft, or is it a sign of anti-Jewish paranoia?

I find his lyrics quoted above another entertaining example of how certain self-declared "activists" condemn ostensible outside forces for foisting a foul culture onto black American society, while they profit from, participate in and generate that culture themselves. It's one of the sharpest examples of self-serving deception in modern America.
