About the Radicalism of fools
The Radicalism of fools was set up by Daniel Ben-Ami to help develop a better understanding of anti-Semitism. It stands for:
■ An unequivocal attachment to free speech. Anti-Semitic bigotry should be challenged rather than driven underground
■ Opposition to identity politics as a key driving force behind contemporary anti-Semitism
■ An understanding that Islamism – as opposed to Islam – is a serious threat to Jews today
There is no direct connection between populism and anti-Semitism.
I was delighted to discuss the Radicalism of fools with Ashley Frawley on her YouTube channel....
An alternative take by Guy Whitehouse. The views expressed may not always coincide with those of the Radicalism of fools.
This is a slightly edited version of my book review that appeared on spiked last Friday.
The term “anti-Semitism” was coined in mid-nineteenth century Europe as a linguistic expression of the way “scientific racism” had come to regard Jews.
