Sergey Lavrov and Antisemite Ken Roth (of Human Rights Watch)

Dear Dr. Daniel Pipes,

Perhaps I could make my point more susinctly by suggesting that Israel will achieve its Policy Goal of "Victory" if or when it defeats Anti-Zionism, which, of course, is just another side of a "coin" we know as Antisemitism.

Sergey Lavrov, in his recent Antisemitic Trope made reference to Antisemitic Jews as the worst (or something to that effect). The fact of the matter is that such Antisemitic Jews do exist; I like to call them "self-hating Jews." And the problem with them, in part, is that they are often not aware of it psychologically, or a deniers of it simply because they themselves know they are Jews, but they think of themselves as the "Good Jews." Noam Chomsky is one good example. But here below is one man, named Ken Roth of the Human Rights Watch who just got denied a position associated with Harvard University. Why he didn't get the position is now a matter of interesting and revealing journalistic speculation. Here is the article at issue just published today at the Daily Beast (online):

"How a Harvard Fellowship Flap Spawned Israel Conspiracy Theories"
"Ken Roth of Human Rights Watch and his left-wing supporters say his criticisms of Israel cost him an Ivy League gig. Here's everything wrong with that evidence-free accusation." by Michael A. Cohen | Published Jan. 19, 2023
