On the whole I enjoyed reading this book It s a necessary book now than ever to borrow a cliche activist phrase from this ageThe only thing I came away with somewhat book now than ever to borrow a cliche activist phrase from this ageThe only thing I came away with somewhat are my thoughts on the intended audience of this book Don t get me wrong Each essay "Has An Important Point "an important point view in its own right I don t doubt the necessity of any of these pieces or the validity of any author s voiceIt says on the back that this book is intended as a resource for Palestinian solidarity activists teachers and Jewish communitiesEssay collections Her Teacher like these I feelike are effective and persuasive if directed at a specific audience no matter how broad that audience isAs a member of the first item of the Date with the Devil list as well as one possessing white Jewish ancestry I found the essays that discussed the privileging of Ashkenazi narratives in Jewish communities as well as essaysike Omar Barghouti s that discuss very hyperspecific aspects of the Palestinian cause most namely BDS and that deliberate on these aspects validity basis and purported antisemitism to be the most useful to me There is something in this book for sure for everyone that this book has intended to reach out to But I just wonder about this book s accessibility especially for the group of people that I think most sorely need access to and need to understand discourse Undaunted (The Kings of Retribution MC, like thisI m talking about the Jewish community as a whole which this book claims to be intended for partially but I found that from start to finish the discourse around social justice around activism around identiarian politics would not do well with an entryevel crowdWhich clearly wasn t the intent of this book So I don t feel the need to say much else about my thoughts about that I just think a few of these essays would do really well with the Jewish community as a whole as pieces that the Jewish community particularly young socially conscious Ashkenazim would do well to hear But these essays get well buried in the extremely well written rest of the book that seems to be aimed at seasoned activists as the book blurb says or Palestinian solidarity activists specificallyThere s much to be said about the merits of making academic discourse accessible La casa ue arde de noche language wise to those withess access to academia or with The Untold Story of the Fourth Holy Grail War (Fate/Zero, less experience within specific activist fields I think it s a much mucharger conversation one that even extends over the entirety of the Strohbär left as they reckon with the gains gained by the right wing in America as well as worldwide over theseast few years And it has to do with the neglect to some degree of those with سيناريو فيلم (إسكندرية... ليه؟) لـ يوسف شاهين less access to universityevel education and spaces where discourse Sex Signals: The Biology of Love like this regularly occurs If theeft isn t reaching them then sooner or ater the right willSo I dunno I came away with a very positive view of this book with just some misgivings about the book s audience When.
