Craz-ay Jewish Congresspeoples

By now you might have seen the unbelievably ugly story of a virulently anti-Semitic flier that was distributed by supporters of Nikki Tinker, the Democrat who is challenging Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) in a primary election.

“Memphis Congressman Steve Cohen and the JEWS HATE Jesus,” reads the flier. “Memphis Christians must unite and support ONE Black Christian to represent Memphis in the United States Congress in 2008.”

So why am I writing about this, apart from my complete disdain for anti-Semites? Because Cohen has also been attacked in the past by black ministers for supporting the inclusion of gays in hate-crimes legislation.

    I’m a member of Cohen’s district here in Memphis. While I think he’s done a terrific job representing all of us, many in the black community still feel bitter over his election. He won the Democratic nomination on a split ticket and became the first Jewish person in American history to represent a majority black district.

    I think it will be interesting to see if he can win again without a split ticket because of some of the opposition coming from local black leadership.

    An award-winning Israeli documentary filmmaker is directing a film on
    antisemitism and is looking to film individuals in the U.S. who have
    been effected by antisemitism. Hoping to find people who are available
    to tell their story in July 2008 when the director is in the country.
    Please contact if you are interested or have
    suggestions. Thank you.
