Will the real Jewish left please stand up?

Michael Neumann, a Professor of Philosophy at Trent University, has an interesting article on CounterPunch about the Jewish left. Here's an excerpt:

In short, all these people who weep for the Palestinians, all these activists who put their bodies on the line, all the eminent figures and eloquent writers who condemn Israel's vile actions--none of these people actually request, let alone demand, any remotely serious action against Israel. And there are only ugly explanations for this bizarre behaviour. Are Jews still better than Palestinians? Did the Nazi era confer on them an unlimited licence to plunder and murder? Is being Jewish so sacred, so wise, so humanitarian, so warm and cuddly that a Jewish state couldn't "really" do much harm, or deserve more than a good scolding?
