As a fellow Jew I emphathise with your post and have been amazed by the shift in the so-called liberal movement. Many here hate the current American administration so much and the support that they give to Israel that the enemies of Israel are actually perceived as victims. The reality of it here is that there is an undertone of anti-semitism amongst some posters here (more so from the European side, but not exclusively) and that is a sorrowful fact.

It is hard to be an openly Jewish poster here at times. However, some discussions I have truly enjoyed, while others really have to make you wonder where some posters got their common sense from.

I also remember the songs of the Weavers and what they did to expose the joyous sound of the songs you mentioned.
