    There is nothing progressive or "anti-imperialist" about being shrouded in the veil. Nor is it, as some liberals would maintain, a quaint cultural attribute.

Noel Ignatiev tells the story of how the oppressed became the oppressors; how the new Irish immigrants achieved acceptance among an initially hostile population only by proving that they could be more brutal in their oppression of African Americans than the nativists.

    First Published: 2009
    The support provided by Israel's primary media to the security and political moves of the government - any government - is not new in Israel. The perception that media is committed to the ethics of the "public's right to know," in numerous cases even against strong currents that demand the silencing and concealment of information, serves more as a title for academic conferences and less as a rule that guides the media establishment in Israel. Not only this, but the journalists' association adopted the official governmental approach in relation to international forums concerned with human rights. This approach places obstacles of suspicion and hostility before anyone who does not follow the official line of Israeli patriotism. Legitimate criticism of unprofessional and unethical conduct of media that volunteers for national or military service is countered with the contention that the source of criticism is anti-Semitic.
