Antisemitic comment, community conversation policies.

I received an antisemitic comment yesterday.

Without getting into too many details, the sender’s name was “Adolf Hitler” and the thoughts expressed were unambiguously offensive.

After some deliberation, I deleted it.

I very much want this space to be a community where people around the world can express strongly held beliefs, opinions and ideas.

It gives me great satisfaction and joy that the community has continued to build in numbers, comments and countries.

The post I wrote about President Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize, for example, elicited comments from readers in France, Chile, and Tibet, among other countries.

Dear friend David Axelrad appears to read regularly in Hungary.

I want to be clear that I encourage passionate and heated disagreement about what I and others have to say.

At the same time, I will not tolerate derogatory or hateful comments.

Thanks again for reading, and I look forward to continuing the conversation.

    The term Semite means a member of any of various ancient and modern people originating from the cradle of mankind, including Akkadians, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Hebrews, Arabs, and Ethiopian Semites.

    who is anti Akkadians, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Hebrews, Arabs, and Ethiopian and much more?

    In a religious context, the term Semitic can refer to the religions associated with the speakers of these languages: thus Judaism, Christianity and Islam are often described as “Semitic religions”.

    who is anti Judaism, Christianity and Islam ?
