  • Norman Geras: “There are people who seem to think that if a certain kind of view is held by a Jew, this gives it special authority. Hence the practice of some non-Jewish writers, when criticizing Israel, of citing in support of their criticism someone else who is Jewish and holds a similar view to their own. […] Yet, affirmations of this kind, whether from Jews or from non-Jews, are extremely odd once you take a moment to think about it. The fact that someone happens to think something as a Jew, or to hold the same opinion as a Jew, is neither here nor there in establishing its cogency.”
